10 WAYS TO CREATING AN AMAZING BLOG


1. Remember that they headline of the post is more important than the post itself. Your title has be to enticing so that people can be able to read your posts. If your title is not attractive then no one will look at your blog. The title has to be interesting to a point where people share it on their own social media pages without a doubt.

2. The size of the post matters. Avoiding dividing the subject of your blogs into different posts or a series of blogs. You should always have all the information shared in one blog. Don’t keep your audience in suspense for too long. If you have too much information to share then choose what is more important and relevant. And anyways, people don’t like reading long texts and they don’t like have much time. Blogs that go viral are the ones that are very short, straight to the point and easy to read. 
3. Write about something people want to read. If your content is not informative, people will not read, comment or share it. You content has to be consistent, if you are writing about Health, then stick to health topics. 
4. Don’t talk about the same subject more than twice in a row. Where is the creativity in that? If you happen to write the same subject twice, people might like it the first time but the second time they might not like it as much so can you imagine how it would be if you would try for the third time. Give the audience something that will encourage them to come keep coming back for more.
5. Know the next timing to post your blog. We rush to post our blogs as soon as we finish writing them even if it is in the early hours of the morning. But this would not be a great idea or the timing for our target audience. It is best to publish when there is traffic on the internet, around 2pm-5pm GMT from Monday- Thursday. Always schedule your posts so that you don’t miss out.
6. Use styling to increase your readability. Readability is important if you what your post to be read. Design your posts in different ways so that they can be attractive. On one you can have a list with bullet points or numbers than some other time you can just have content without any styling but write your posts more creatively because people don’t like reading long texts.
7. Optimize you posts for search engines. Remember you should always write for the audience and not for Google or other search engines. This way your content will have less meaning. But you can be able to cover both these basis without losing your credibility. You can use the theme of your blog as a tool to rank on Google and to attract more people to your blog. You can also use hash tags and SEO plugins.
8. Link your content in the right way. If you are using extra links for your blog. You need to make sure that those links go hand in hand with the content. You have to let your audience know what you are talking about.
9. Images sell your blog. A picture can say a lot about the message you are trying to get across than content can. So when you choose your images, choose photos that will stand out.
10. Make sure your styling is consistent. You have to use the same styling for your blog, that way your audience can identify with it. Everything about your blog has to be on point all time to keep up with the momentum.

4 TIPS ON HOW TO GROW YOUR BLOGS AUDIENCE


This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure for more info. 
Being a blogger requires both time and commitment – it’s important to understand that
your audience is not going to grow overnight. Readers tend to follow blogs who add
value to their lives and enrich them with content that is meaningful and relevant. Follow
these 4 tips and watch the traffic on your blog slowly soar to great heights.

Become a Guest Contributor
Think of all the bloggers that you look up to and whose audience you aspire to be reach
– wouldn’t it be great to have them get to know your awesome blog as well? Cultivate a
list of bloggers that you follow (who has a similar audience as you) and reach out to
them about being a possible contributor on their website. Guest contributors can be
very valuable to a blogger, especially when it comes to keeping up with writing
demands. Most blogs are happy to accept high quality and free content for their blog so
make sure you show them your best writing pieces!
Engage your Readers
Engagement will determine whether or not people will become followers or if they’ll
just pass on through. Keep your audience engagement by providing them with
meaningful and relevant content. Ask them questions, but also don’t forget to
acknowledge their answers. A simple, “That’s great to know!” or “That’s awesome =)”
will show that you really do value their time. It’s a simple feel-good gesture that will
surely not go unnoticed by your audience.
Get Social!
The cornerstone of any great blog is having a strong social media presence. This doesn’t
necessarily mean that you will have to sign up for as many social media channels as
possible (think quality and not quantity), just choose what you are most comfortable
with and be sure to keep active.
Keep Organized and Create an Editorial Calendar
A consistent blogging schedule demonstrates to your readers that you are a committed
blogger. If your schedule allows you to post twice a week, make sure you are able to
carry that out with consistency. Erratic posts here and there will make your blog seem
like it’s an abandoned hobby and doesn’t come off as a trusted source for your niche.
