I love writing about my blogging experience- and so far I’ve had really good feedback from the blogging community about my experiences of stepping up my blogging game these past few months.
Below are just a few tips and tricks I’ve picked up over the last few months- either from the courses I’ve watched, or just playing it by ear. Let me know any of your own tips!
Find a Good Title
I learnt this one from a Skillshare course! I hate trying to find the perfect title for my posts, as it’s not something that comes naturally to me. I’ve found I garner more interest from posts with imaginative or “eye-catching” titles that appeal to my audience.
While I don’t necessarily think that titles are everything (and the body of your post is where you get the time to shine), titles encourage readers to click on your post in the first place. I need to follow this advice myself, and I’m working on coming up with better titles this month!
Make it Personal
In my experience, writing posts that have a personal touch are more interesting to readers. If your readers can relate to what you’re saying, or they can understand your point of view- you’re more likely to increase their enjoyment of your writing.
I also think that making posts personal can be more interesting to write, and I love adding a personal touch to some of my posts, such as the one I wrote on my 21st birthday.
Remember your Readership
This is a hard one sometimes- but it’s super important to remember who’s reading your posts! Your readership/audience should be central to what you’re writing at all times. This doesn’t mean to say you can’t write the odd article about a subject that’s close to you, or something a bit different to your niche (which I sometimes do when I feel like it).
But you should always remember that your readership is loyal to you for a reason, and your blog posts should reflect the fact that you understand their needs and wants.
Link to Posts
This doesn’t have to be super obvious, but just placing a few links to your other content can encourage readers to browse around your fantastic site! In this post, I’ve already included 2 links- and I bet you barely noticed!
I really think this is a great way to show your range as a writer, and also to encourage readers to read any other articles you might have written in the past few weeks. It’s also one of the ways you can raise your DA, if that’s something that matters to you.
