When Writing a Blog Do This Find your niche

To do this, you must first ask yourself this question: Who are your target readers? Once that’s settled, you can home in on a focus category and be the expert on it.

Be relatable, be yourself

What sets bloggers apart from newspaper article feeds is voice. Let your readers get to know you. Your content is what draws them in while your personality, or your voice in writing, is what will keep them there.

Use links within your posts

Whether you are linking to other blogs or websites that contain great information or linking to past posts on your own site, do it whenever you can. This will help not only increase your clicks but also help with your blog’s search engine rankings.

Include images

While readers come to your blog for information and personality, they also need to be stimulated visually. Not all posts will lend themselves to an image, but when they do, take advantage of it.

Respond to blog comments

This is an opportunity to connect directly with the people who are reading your work. Not all comments need a response, but be sure to respond to ones that do. And sometimes it’s worth just popping on and posting “Thanks for reading my blog.”

Post to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and anywhere else you can

Don’t be afraid to use social media to tout your posts. Anything that makes it easier for potential readers to find your blog is a must (and friends and family definitely qualify as potential readers).
