7 Tricks to Be a Successful Blogger
Thinking of blogging all over again? As Araon Wall quoted, “doing well with blogging is not about writing one key post, it is about performing day after day and helping a few people at a time”, let’s consider some tricks while blogging:
The First Sentence is the First Impression:
The first sentence of your blog should always bring a smile on your reader’s face while giving them a hint about your story line. Throw tricky yet provocative questions to your readers to keep them motivated to read further to find the answer. Using related quotes can prove to be crowd–pleasing as well.
Be Simple, Yet Effective:
try not to be magniloquent while writing your blog. Using bombastic words may upgrade the quality of your blog but it won’t be user-friendly anymore. Your approach of writing should be crisp, clear, effective yet easily graspable.
Perspective: Try to figure out which section of readers will be attracted to your post in accordance to your topic. Though writing is basically conveying you own perspective but if you want your readers to read and understand, try to write the whole thing in their perspective. Try to cover different angles of your topic.
Focus on the Journey, Not the Destination: Let your readers feel the essence of your story and take them on a wonderful ride through your writing skill. Do anything possible under the sun to understand your reader.
If You Can’t Make it Good, at Least Make it Look Good:
Receptive blog design is a must.
Reminder: Nowadays mobile phones and tablets are the leading sources for surfing the internet. Your theme should be responsive to smaller screens so that your readers do not click away to find a better solution. Always keep your reader comfortable while reading your blog by choosing appropriate design and theme.
