5 Simple (But Important) Things To Remember About Blogging

ShaLanJo

Maintaining a blog isn’t always easy. Sometimes the ideas flow like water and other times your ideas are as dry as a desert. When the ideas are no longer flowing, you stop writing and your blog is forgotten until you come up with new content. Here are some simple but important tips I remind myself of when it’s time to write.

If you find yourself experiencing writer’s block, search the web for blog topics. There are several websites that list hundreds of topics to dive into. Some websites offer blog topic generators. They aren’t the best, but they may help stimulate your mind.

How To Find Out Your Most Fulfilling Blogging Niche

MAKUPSY

When I started blogging I had a lot of online critics. I concluded that that’s what happens when you put your thoughts out there for the world to see. One person tweeted saying “what sort of blogging is that”?  It stung, in my world, I was expressing myself the best way I knew how and to have someone else think it wasn’t good enough nearly led me to give up on a new hobby I was enjoying. To my surprise, one woman reached out to me and she encouraged me to keep writing. She told me that my blog was my space, a place to have my voice heard and my stories shared. She inspired my blog tagline. I embraced her advice and continued to write, without a niche in mind but still, I shared my experiences one post at a time.

Short Blog Posts.

RTH24

After writing blog posts for almost a year now, on a daily basis, I have realised that there is no definitive length to writing a blog post.

A blog post isn’t always defined by writing 1000 words or more about a certain topic.

It is more about explaining the topic in the best way possible, no matter how lesser or more words you write to do so.

You could explain something in a line or you could take 10 pages to write, they are still blog posts. You don’t have to unnecessarily use words and verbs and adjectives to extend the length of your blog just so it seems more readable.

I’d consider this to be a short blog post, but the funny part is I’ve written much smaller ones too, over time.

Whatever makes you content with your writing on that particular topic.

Spotting and Fixing Multimedia Missteps in Online Content

By now, you know that multimedia is essential to successful web content. Gone are the days when text-heavy documents could attract and keep eyes on the page. Modern readers are accustomed to beautiful site layouts and eye-catching graphics, and including multimedia in your content is just as good for search engine optimization as it is for user experience.

But even if you’ve whole-heartedly embraced multimedia, you might still be damaging your visibility and engagement.

Below are three common-but-serious blunders that can cost you big time.

1. Not using captions correctly

Pop quiz: When a reader visits a website, what is the first thing they read?

If you answered, “The headline or page title,” you’re wrong. The answer, at least according to a study commissioned by David Ogilvy, is that image captions get read more than just about anything else. According to the results of various image placement tests, Ogilvy…
