With the quickly rising power of the internet as a new medium, blogging has become its vessel. Blogging provides a bridge between the casual reader and the writer. It has even become a career opportunity for those who are getting paid to blog. However, blogging isn’t just about jotting down random ramblings and hoping for the best. In order to create at truly successful blog, you need to make sure that it is of the highest standard, to both impress and draw in more readers. Here are two tips to help you achieve that.
1. Find A Topic You Love and Write About It
We all have different experiences and different interests. Blogging is all about sharing that with others. Look into your own life and think about what you love talking or thinking about most, and also, what you are most knowledgeable about. Then, start writing about it! It’s as simple as that. It is important however, to write about something you are truly passionate about. Forcing yourself into writing about a topic you’re not interested in will reflect in your writing, and well put off your readers.
2. Find Your Voice
Once you understand what you want to write about, all you need to do is understand how you want to write it. It’s best establish one style of writing and sticking to that, instead of switching in between posts. If your topic is something more technical, then maybe formal writing would suit your blog best. If the topic is something more personal or light, then informal writing is perfectly suitable. The best thing to do is to find out the style that you enjoy writing with. If you’re not enjoying your writing, then you’re simply not doing it right.
3. Pick a Good Domain
It’s all very well writing great content but you want people to be able to find and read it don’t you? That’s where it’s useful to use a great domain name as the title to your blog. I could write for hours on this subject but www.domainname.com.au probably covers most of it!
Knowing your topic and knowing your style should give you a blog that’s interesting, fun, and engaging. This is a formula for success. If you follow these tips and stay true to yourself, then blogging will become second nature to you and so will becoming a successful blogger.
