How To Write A Great Blog

Monday, April 4, 2011

Writing a blog can be tricky. Writing a great blog can be even trickier.

The point of writing a blog is to get people to read your posts. If you are writing about boring topics then there is no way anyone will subscribe to your blog.

One important thing to remember is to write about what you know. It doesn't matter if it's a hobby you enjoy or a news story that you have kept up-to-date on. The important thing to remember is to research and report the subject well.

Using a first person voice is always a good plan. It keeps your audience engaged. They will also tend to feel like they are reading something more personal as if the blog is meant for them.

The worst thing you can do as a blogger is lie. Don't act like you know everything about your subject. You don't want to get caught up in a lie and have your readers distrust you.

If you are unsure about something look it up. If you are unable to find the answer admit that you don't know it. Your audience will respect you much more if you admit that you don't know everything then if you lie about it.

Another thing you should try to develop is a voice. Creating your own personal spin on things can make your blogs more unique and distinguishable.

By using these tips in your next blog you are bound to write your way to a large following base.

I think these tips are very helpful for individuals who are creating a blog. The most important one, I think, is the power of your own voice. Readers do not like to engage themselves in monotonous blogs. By developing your own voice readers will come to enjoy your work.

Writing about what you know is a great tip because it is easier when you have more knowledge to think about what you want to say. Writing blogs is a great way to interact and receive feedback about your style of writing from others.
