How do I create a blog that *conquers all obstacles* and stays out of the slush pile?
“The Internet is a vast wasteland of thoughts and ideas. According to Technorati, someone creates a new blog every 1.4 seconds. If blogging was a crime, and in some cases it very much should be, it would be the number one source of criminal activity in the land.” Adam Brown, FreelanceSwitch Site.
With these alarming facts, how do I create a blog that my viewers will pick mine to read?
I must present a professional blog.
In the past, I have supplied checklists and a few posts on blogging that guides you in creating a fabulous site. But, perhaps you’ve overlooked a few items that may seem obvious but subconsciously you’re incorporating into your posts. These points will deter your audience away. Take a moment, carefully read, and check off each point.
Unfortunately, all it may take is one of these points (not to be checked-off) to turn your viewers off and away, never to return.
_____ Properly, type in caps and no caps-do not take short-cuts.
- Do not capitalize your entire title leaving everything in bold print.
- Do not leave words like ‘i’ in lower case.
_____ Use the word ‘blog’ correctly-do not call your post or article a blog.
_____ Choose 2-3 posts as ‘related posts’ at the end of your original post for the day-do not include a string or list of related posts. KISS.
_____ Spell names correctly.
_____ Keep your content short, specific and relevant-avoid rambling.
_____ Take blogging seriously.
_____ Keep your readers informed.
_____ Use pictures to spice up your post.
_____ Establish yourself as a source of information
_____ Keep your posts positive-bad mouthing and constant complaining is just plain unacceptable.
