Alright, you want to start a blog? Anyone can write a blog, really, the difference is just in what you’re aiming for.If you’re writing a blog for the financial aspect, you should keep ads and sponsors in mind.If you’re writing a blog for the awareness of a topic you should keep collaborations in mind, as they can help get your blogs out to more people, or make them pop out.
No matter what your topic is, here are 5 things you should keep in mind when writing a blog:
1. Titles: Titles are probably the most important aspect of a blog.A good title should appeal to a certain group of people (be it age group, or occupation) and draw them in. Keep it short, keep it simple and understandable, and make it interesting. If you can spark an interest in potential readers, they could go on to become followers and make your post that much more successful. Sometimes getting people to click on your blog can be good enough to start out with, so keep your headlines strong!
2. Topics: The topic of your blogs can be a make or break factor. When choosing the topics of your blogs it can be very important to stick to one general topic. In this case it’s blogging about events, which means that your readers will begin to recognize a pattern in your writing, and if they’re interested in the topic you provide, they will keep coming back. Of course you need to choose a topic that interests you, but with that said you also need something that will interest potential readers. The topic you’ve chosen is very general and can be chosen to draw in practically anyone, but try not to choose topics that are too vague just to potentially draw in a wider range of people.
3. Purpose: When creating your blog, try to give every event it’s own specific purpose. It’s imperative that you followers understand that there is a purpose behind your writing. Choose a topic to revolve around so your post doesn’t seem vague or spontaneous. In the end it’s very attractive if your reader can sense that you are trying to support an event or raise awareness for it, and it will become a more respectable blog.
4. Consistency: If you’re trying to amass a following to raise awareness of the things around you and earn something off of your hard work, you should stick to a regular schedule. This means that readers will know what to expect, and will be more likely turn into followers.If you suddenly disappear for a month, many could lose their interest in that period, or forget about your work.
5. Readers: Blogging about events means that you’ll need find a balance when appealing to certain groups of readers. Writing about parties for the younger group is always the more reliable choice, but you can write about exciting outdoor activities for adults, children’s events at stores or restaurants, sales and outlet, or even larger comprehensive events that will create change for all ages. Just make sure that you separate the different topics for the different appeals. You don’t have to appeal to everyone.
Lastly try to make sure that your blog is personal and original. Having your person and humor shine through will attract people that have similar tastes to you, and find your writing enjoyable, instead of people that are just looking for information.Those factors ate after all, what separates blogs and just general information on the internet. Subjectivity, and personality.
