Get the Basis Right

Don’t overuse things like plug-ins, ads, images, or keywords.

Doing this will undo your hard work by slowing your site speed which can earn you a flag from search engines.

Make sure to focus on one topic and maintain a natural writing style that is seamless.

 

Commenting on Other Blogs

Making comments on other blogs can be very helpful in attracting visitors to your blog.

Google Reader is an excellent method for organizing other interesting but related blogs.

Make regular comments on them, whenever you have valuable input.

TIP! One easy way to get people to visit your own blog is to comment on other blogs in your niche. If you use Google Alert, try maintaining a separate folder within it to utilize for keeping up with other blogs that you want to follow.

Write Original Content

Do not copy other people’s articles.

Plagiarism is dishonest, and it is the surest way to ruin your reputation and destroy any chance you have of creating a popular blog.

It’s not necessary to work as a professional writer, as long as you are passionate about your subject.

Copying Content

Own Your Blog

When you are creating your blog, consider purchasing your own domain name, rather than using a free site.

A domain name is fairly inexpensive and will make your blog look a cut above the rest.

It is often a good idea to purchase a domain name suitable for your blog.

There are free sites out there, but they’ll likely have a URL that doesn’t communicate what your blog is all about.

 

Offer Value via Interesting Topics

Write blog posts that are interesting to your readers.

Everyone is worried about a specific issue or problem.

Present them with solutions, tips, and advice by offering value via your content.

Unless you present this information in an interesting way, people may not really care.

Instead, write about something that will attract their interest and is relevant to their needs.

Your goal is to offer a lot of value that will cause people to come to your blog and stay.

Blog Posting Tips

TIP! Never ever allow yourself to copy anything. Plagiarism will ruin your credibility among your readers as well as your peers and can also result in legal action against you.

Be You… Everybody else is already taken

Be authentic and please, don’t be a “know it all”.

Instead, try to maintain a persona that is honest and transparent.

Don’t just be that person sometimes; be it all the time.

A blog is viewed by many as an ultimate expression of someone’s personality.

They want to connect with ”you” and know ”you”.

And don’t try to reach perfection; it doesn’t exist.

Simply try to get better at what you do daily.

If you make a mistake, don’t torture yourself about it.

Learn to move on fast (I know it’s easy to say…but you have to try). Your uniqueness is yours alone and this will be reflected in your blog.

At the End of the Day

Keep in mind that it’s worth it to run a blog, although it can be difficult.

Keep this article around, so you may read it again if ever you need to.

TIP! If you plan to blog for the long haul, then invest in a domain name. A domain name is fairly inexpensive and will make your blog look a cut above the rest.
