Blog Writing Techniques: Hard work, consistency and understanding the tactics of blogging are the three main mantras of becoming a successful blogger. On the other hand, if you don’t want to get frustrated about why people are not visiting your blog, here are the 5 golden rules of successful blogging that will ease your task:
- Stay firm on your comfort niche
More often than not, most unsuccessful bloggers do blogging to earn money. While, the truth is, real blogging comes out of passion, experience and expert knowledge of your blogging niche. If you love travelling, then write about your travel experience and if you are a food holic, then write down about the experiments you do in your kitchen. Don’t opt for a niche that you aren’t really interested in, but still doing it for the sake of its popularity in the current market.
- Try sticking to popular niches or, Be Unique
However, it would be a best match if you are an expert in blog writing about popular niches. Some of the in-trend popular niches throughout the world are – fitness, health, medicine, business, marketing, internet, finance, fashion, travel, blogging and more. However, it’s never a harm if want to stand out from the rest. Some examples of very successful bloggers who opted to be unique, include – ‘Digital School Photography’ by Darren Rowse, ‘PsyBlog’ (Social Psychology), ‘StudyHacks’ by Cal Newport, ‘Stereogum’ (Indie and Alternative Music blog) and many more – your presentation and interaction is what matters the most.
- Inserting SEO keywords is a must
Jot down relevant SEO keywords before you start blog writing. Your, not- so- popular site is often found through these Search Engine Optimized keywords. To start with, you should have a minimum keywords density of 2 to 3% in a 500 word article. Sometimes, these keywords may not be grammatically correct or make no sense, but this is exactly how SEO works and you must be smart enough to make sentence adjustments for inserting popular and relevant keywords to your writing piece.
- Expose highlights of your piece to social media
The most important part of your write up is the headline and a small piece of intro attached to it. Both these subjects should be highlighted and made viral on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook or Instagram so that it reaches to ample number of people. Irrelevant titles and boring information instantly turn around the heads of the interested viewers to other attractive bloggers.
- The frame and content
You can get blog writing advice’s from ‘The Elements of Style’ and Stephen King’s ‘On Writing’. However, interesting blog writing styles genuinely comes naturally. Well, if you aren’t writing an English novel, and are determined to give some strong pieces of unique information, you surely can become a successful blogger even without being born with the ultimate writing skills. Once you have framed the write ups on editors like MS Word, you must always go through a grammar check (preferably through grammar checking tools like Grammar) and plagiarism check. Copied and repeated content and those full of grammatical errors gives a nasty impression to your viewers.
