This was probably the most helpful article I’ve ever found on the internet about blogging: from pushingsocial.com. It’s perfect for any blogger and a must-read. Here are some tips that I found the most useful:

Write out a blog strategy. There are so many blogs, yours has got to stand out if its going to have traffic.

Track your stats. See what posts attract the most views and stick to topics that are similar. If something has a lot of views, you’ve obviously struck a chord with your audience.

Practice great writing. While sometimes blogs can be informal, no one wants to read a blog with terrible grammar and spelling, especially when those errors can be easy to fix.

Use attention getting headlines and photos. A picture is worth a thousand words and people really do judge the content of your blog by pictures and headlines.

Link to other blogs. They might do the same. Also share your blog on your Twitter and Facebook accounts. They are your best advertisement tools.

Respond to comments. If someone comments on a post, they obviously want to engage with you. Do them a favor and respond back.

Claim your content. Become associated with powerful and unforgettable content with your blog and don’t look back.

These tips helped me a lot and I’m sure they would help anyone, both new bloggers and old hats.

    This post provides some excellent ways to improve your blogging experience. If someone is new to blogging, this post would be an excellent source for them to look at to improve their blog. One tip that I strongly agree with is, “practice great writing. While sometimes blogs can be informal, no one wants to read a blog with terrible grammar and spelling, especially when those errors can be easy to fix.” I believe that it is extremely important to have good grammar when blogging. Nothing is worse than reading a blog with tons of grammatical errors. Always proofread!

  3. These blogging tips are very helpful. I agree that these are probably the most important tips. The one that I have the hardest time with is the writing style that is used for blogs. I tend to forget that it is something that should be looked over for spelling and grammar errors because I see it is an informal place to write your ideas. But like you said, it doesn’t matter if it is formal or informal, we should still make sure that we are practicing good writing skills.
