It’s Friday and we have some awesome blogging tricks to share with you. If you find blogging tedious and daunting then this post is for you. If you’re looking for ways to spice up your blogging experience, this post is also for you.
Have a catchy blog name. Sounds simple right? Well, it is not so simple. Sometimes finding a blog name that is unique and attractive takes time but you need it to stand out in the crowded world of blogging.
Use social media creatively. Don’t just set up a blog and focus on it alone. You should promote your blog on social media. Instagram and Pinterest are great for this. Using social media creatively makes it easier for millions of people to find your content.
Tag your posts. Blogging sites like WordPress.com allows you to tag your posts. Tagging makes it easier for people to find your content. It makes your post visible when a keyword search is done via Google. So pick out the main keywords/ theme from every post, and add tags appropriately.
Engage your personal network. Put your 1000 or more Facebook friends to good use by sharing links to your blog with them. Ask close friends to share content on your blog and drop comments too. Your readers will increase gradually that way.
Use great headlines. You can kill a great blog post by using a boring headline. Your headline is what will draw your readers in. Make it as catchy as possible.
Explore guest blogging. Look out for bloggers in the same niche as you and offer to be a guest writer for their blog. This is a great way to gain more visibility as a writer and it also brings free publicity for your blog. Link backs to your blog from other blogs is also great for your SEO ranking.
