So you want to be a blogger? You might have heard that you can make thousands a month on advertising just by writing blogs from the privacy of your own home. Or perhaps you just feel like expressing yourself and know that blogging can be a great outlet for letting out some creative energy and connecting with readers on a personal level.
Whatever your inspiration has been for wanting to jump onto the blog bandwagon and start your very first blog, there are a few ways to make sure your blog stands out as much as possible. Whether you want to make something that will go viral and make you famous overnight, your aspirations are simply to share your life humbly, here are some tips for making sure your blog comes out great.
Make It Original
Don’t try to copycat anyone else. You can draw inspiration but make sure that any inspiration leads you to create something new out of that inspiration rather than a carbon copy.
Try to draw from your own personal experiences that are unique to your life. You can write about surviving your recent car accident, to how you are feeling about being single again. Whatever you decide to write about, make it something that people can identify with in an original way.
Remember, no one else can do you. Just be yourself and that will translate into your writing and make a fantastic blog post that people will love because it is coming from your heart.
Add Images To Enhance Your Post
Some of the best blogs are not only written well but use images to enhance the content and make the blog a beautifully constructed post.
If your blog is humorous you can use memes, gifs, or images which you find funny to help enhance your punchlines. Some people’s blogs are entirely images which can be a fun idea when you piece together everything as a cohesive story of funny images.
Share With Your Family And Friends
Your first audience is going to be your friends and family. Don’t think about your blog post going straight to TMZ’s front page. Do it for the love of creating something original. Just be happy to create something great that your friends and family will appreciate and support.
You can send out an email asking them to stop by your URL and have a look or share the link on social media which is a great tool for getting the word out in your network.
Just make sure that your privacy settings are set so that people can re-share your link if they want to spread the blog amongst their network as well.
