Writing articles for your blog is an essential part of the entire blog process. Let your readers get to know you first and foremost. Be yourself as you write and your personality will shine through. Engage your readers with your writing and provide the type of information that will benefit them.
So, what should you write about? Below, are simple tips on how to effectively write for blogs:
Provide basic, real, useful information as well as resources to go along with the information you’re writing about. What are your interests? Will it interest your readers as well? Offer “how to tips” and share how it made your blog successful. Can it benefit your readers too?
Can your readers benefit from your expertise? What’s your passion in life? At My Fashion E-Mall Blog, I share articles and links that can help other home based businesses succeed with their marketing efforts. Have you had a business experience that has helped you and can be shared with others? How has it worked for you? Most importantly, can it help others as well?
I can’t think of anything to write
There will be times when you will experience writer’s block; it happens to the best of us. Not to worry, look for other interesting articles that are related to your blog theme. Offer guest post articles for those days that you’re either busy or just can’t get around to writing. Remember, and ask for permission to use an article and never alter the content of a guest article. These guest post articles can help you when you’re experiencing big time writer’s block.
I personally post at least twice a week. Evaluate your own blogging style and see what works for you and your audience. You may decide to blog every day or every other day. Many established bloggers tend to blog every day while others blog once or twice a week.
You want your high quality articles to gain readers. A great way to get exposure is by submitting articles to directories. Here are a few to get you started:
Show your personality but also your creativity. Use graphics, videos and podcast elements to spice up your blog. Most of all, have fun! Find something that doesn’t feel like a task but is fun to write about. Before you know it, you will be able to acknowledge your blogs’ progress and celebrate your blogging success!
