There are blogs all over the web so many bloggers may worry about standing out from the huge pack. Competition is one thing I don’t worry about. Variety is the spice of life and I love that there are so many blogs in different niches to read. I read blog posts written by various bloggers everyday and I love how they each bring something to the table. If you are thinking of how to stand out and become a better blogger, here are some useful tips you may find handy –
Bring something to the table
There is no need for a new blog if you have nothing to say. Copying blog posts all over the web and pasting them on your blog won’t get you far. Stealing ideas off other blogs won’t do you any good long term. You need to bring in your own ideas to become a better blogger. Your blog posts have to entertain. inform or educate your readers, or there’s no point in publishing it. Becoming a better blogger means you bring your authenticity to your blog and write in the tone and style that is unique to you. That is one way to stand out from the saturated world of blogging.
Make attention to your headlines
This is one area I have struggled on and off in but I a lot better now with my headlines. Catchy headlines get you more clicks, so it is worth paying attention to them a bit more. It is best to keep the headlines below 7 words to get as many clicks as possible (SEO seems to like those best). Also, you should ensure the headline is related to the blog post and not a clickbait like many blogs do. That is just not right in my eyes.
Focus on niches you are interested in
When you write about topics you have interest in, your passion shows and that entices your readers even more. It also means you never run out of ideas. There is no point setting up a pet or beauty blog if you run out of ideas after a month of setting it up. Focus on niches you are interested in to become a better blogger.
Add Bullet Points
I always use bullet points in my blog posts. They make it easy for me to write and easier for my readers to scan through my posts. If there’s one tip you implement today, it should be this one. Adding bullet points make your posts a lot easier to read.
Share your posts on social media
Sharing your blog posts on social media can bring you lots of practice. My favourite social media platform for traffic referral is Pinterest. I have been getting loads of referrals from there and I am loving it so much. It is also a lot easier to stay active on compared to other social media platforms. I plan to spend more time generating traffic from Pinterest as that is clearly working great.
I post regularly on here and I have done so since day 1. Writing gives me pleasure and the fact that it is now a job makes it even more pleasurable. I am grateful to be able to earn an income while working from home and it is not something I take for granted at all. Maybe that is why I work my behind off on here.
Do you blog? How do you plan on becoming a better blogger? And if you don’t blog, what sort of blogs do you enjoy reading and why?
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great one.
