The internet has thousands of blogs. Blogger blogs on everything from scrapbooking to travel to bug collection. Most bloggers don’t just blog for their own good, they want to share their ideas, thoughts and photos with the world. To make your blog stand out from the crowd, you need to be creative.
Here are some tips for creating useful blogs:
What’s in a name?
The name you choose for your blog is the most important part !! A good name is short, interesting, and describes what you do. If you’re blogging about collecting butterflies, your name should be able to tell web users. You could call your blog “Butterfly-Catcha” or something else that is interesting. In addition to your name, you need to have a good logo. There are so many great fonts to try. You can also buy or download a logo maker for cheap, so use color and spice and make something that really stands out.
Write interesting things.
Not just spitting out words; try to make your blog interesting. Keep up, be creative. This means that you are aware of the topic of your choice. Provide your readers with short, interesting information that you find interesting. Information that doesn’t take forever to read, which brings us to the next point:
Small pieces, please
Internet users are not like the typical person who sits and reads a large amount of text in a book or magazine. Internet users don’t actually read at all. Short headlines and if they see something interesting they might stop and read a few sentences before moving on. It helps to break your blog down into small paragraphs and use interesting short headlines that grab attention and tell you what a paragraph is about.
Make it visual
Colors and photos make your blog more user-friendly. People like to see things. (Especially those lazy internet users who don’t like to read) Beautiful pictures work well and it’s also nice to have some funny cartoon or pictures related to the topic of your choice pc kart.. BUT remember to keep your images small and web friendly. Nobody will read your blog if it takes too long to open.
Add some hype
People go back to blogging sites if there’s something worth going back to. Your goal as a blogger should be to create a blog that people are talking about. This way people will refer their friends to your blog and you will get a much larger following
Make your blog interactive
People who read blogs love to join the conversation. You have a blog template, where your readers can leave comments or at least be able to email you. You can also post polls on your site where your readers can vote on how they feel about controversial topics.
Nobody Reading Your Blog?
So you got a your own weblog. Everything looks great, you have nice layout, some nice pictures and last but not least excellent articles.
You also update your blog on a regular basis but nobody seems to read it ! You start to think where did I go wrong. Well if your blog is really good you just need to be patient. Also make sure you submit your blog to directories specialized in blogs and search engines.But even if you did all this you might get not the amount of readers you wished for.
The concept is simple, if you read other blogs then other people read your blog. So the more blogs you read the more people will be reading yours. Sounds good you might think. Well it actually is a very good concept. Just register your blog for free and login, then pick a category blogs you would like to read and start reading. You must read each blog for at least half a minute, after that you can select another blog. For each blog you have red you receive a credit. This credit means one other member is going to read your blog. Again great concept.
But there is a downside, first you have to spend of lot of time reading blogs in order to get other people to read yours. You can choose to read only blogs in a specific category (of your interest) but it is still really time consuming. Other people who are reading your blog might do this because they only want other people to read their blog. You can imagine these are not the most interested readers you wish for. But blogexplosion.com also offers non members to search their directory for blogs. These visitors are potenial quality readers for your blog! Other downside is that you can not only earn credits by reading other blogs, you can also buy them ! If everybody is going to do this then this concept doesn’t do so well anymore.
