Blogging Tips

9 Nov 2014

 In recent years, Bloggers have grabbed the "internet limelight". More and more people have been starting their Blogs now-a-days  and the best part about the word wide web is that it gives every Blog equal attention. If you have ever thought of starting a Blog or started a Blog but have no idea what to do, I have jotted down some tips and tricks that will help you.

#1: The Start
While starting a blog you have to decide what platform you want to base your blog on. This is the first advise given out by any blogger which makes it an important one. Depending on your knowledge of coding, web designing, etc. you can choose your blogging platform. I would recommend blogger.com ie. blogspot for people with least IT knowledge as it makes blogging user friendly and rather easier to understand as it does not involve coding to a higher level and if you want to custom code, it is possible on blogger.com. Another option is wordpress.com or you can get your own URL.

#2:The Name
Pick a catchy Name and a URL. This becomes necessary when you let people know about your blog. You do not want it to be a whole sentence, as it can be quite a mouthful. Try to keep the name Short, Simple and Easy.

#3: Topics
Write on topics you are really passionate about. This has been my biggest lesson. You might feel that writing about something that is a hot topic right now will give you more readers or PR's will come to you with their free goodies. This does not happen, when you try to write about something that you do not give much importance to, because it shows in your writing. My advise would be to write something that you would like to read or consider your blog a small space where you would want to share things you like.

#4:Readers are Important
You need to write for your readers. I know this may oppose my previous tip, but you have to meet it half-way. If you are writing for page-views, try and write about something that will be helpful to your readers and will keep them interested in your blog-posts.

#5: Layout
Layout is important, as most of the viewers will want to wait a bit if your layout is attractive. Make sure that your background where you post your article is white and keep your font simple, which makes it easier to read. Remember even though your layout should look good, the content is what matters the most.  

#6: Photography
If you decide to post photos on your blog, make sure the lighting is proper and whatever you want to display is visible easily. Crop your images, so that it looks presentable. Try to avoid using your camera flash as it makes the photos look gaudy, natural light is highly recommended.

#7:Your Blog
Finally remember your blog is 'YOUR BLOG' you are the one controlling it. Do not compare it to other blogs and do not give up writing if you don't receive as many views as you wished. "Good things happen to those who wait", so be patient an just enjoy writing.
