If you are new to the world of blogging it’s probable that you have high hopes that what you have to say will matter and that you will be the next big blogging craze. But do you know how to make your blog stand out? Do you know how to engage readers with your content? It’s not enough to be able to write, it’s about how you write it and what you write about. Internet readers have a ton of choices and unless you bring you’re A-Game they are bound to go elsewhere.
Make your blog about something. Whether it be online games or a recently divorced female on the dating scene, readers want to know what they are going to get from your blog each and every time. That’s why not only having a subject matter, but a unique point of view and writing style will make your blog stand out against the rest. This makes for online reading that your viewers will come back to again and again.
Be Short and Sweet
Occasionally a long blog post is fine. If you happen to be telling a gripping story then writing 2,000 words could be engaging to your reader, but more often than not your reader is there because they have a few moments in between the tasks at work and want to read your blog. If you keep coming at your readers with short novels each and every day they will quickly fall out of love with your blog. Keep your readers interested by keeping your thoughts between 300 and 750 words. If the content is good and to the point then your audience will look forward to reading your blog on a daily basis and that’s the first step toward success.
