3 Tips for the unsuccessful bloggerBlogging, like any other artistic venture takes time, patient and a little self-motivation in order to get it just right. Of course, there are some who are naturally talented and creating a comprehensive, cohesive post is almost an after thought. Then there is me—the blogger who has a little to say about a lot of things. The blogger who disparately wants to stay cool and relevant in the tech world, but has no idea on how to get her blog noticed by other people besides her co-workers.

So for all you unsuccessful bloggers out there, here are 3 tips on how you can improve your blog:

Use creative titles. Catchy titles are the most effective way to get a reader interested in reading your blog. For instance, let’s compare these titles: Several reasons why social media makes us less social vs 3 Reasons why social media sucks! Title number one is OK. It gives the reader an understanding of what the post is about but there is no pizzazz. Title number two is direct, it displays passion and reader knows the author will present three cases.

Post, Post, Post.  Why write a blog, if you are not willing to update it? I recommend posting at least once a week. This  will keep your blog relevant in the search engine databases. Make sure you keep your posts focused and that they contain enough information to cover at least one topic.

Tell everyone.  If you want people to read your blog you have to let them know it’s there to read. Link your blog to your social media sites, such as facebook, twitter or Linkin. Read and leave comments on other blogs that are of interest to you. When leaving comments tactfully mention that you also have a blog that may interest the author.

Leave a comment below and let me know if this gave you clarity or is it non sense!
