2. Keep your content fresh and simple
Updating new content makes for a happy reader and keeps viewers interested. It isn’t necessary to post every day, but you should spice it up a bit at least once a week.
Also remember that you are blogging not writing a book. When viewers see long paragraphs, they tend to quickly become disinterested and move on to something easier to comprehend.
Make sure you break up your points into short comprehendible sections. Short paragraphs, bullet points and number list are key into keeping your readers wanting more.
3. Don’t Procrastinate
Procrastination is something we all do, but as we get older managing your time is going to be the key to a successful career. Make sure you set time aside to write stand out blogs because the more time you allow yourself to write the better the blog will be. It is easy to say I’ll do it later, but next time you go to say that remember that it’s only going to stress you out in the end.
4. Use a little eye-candy
Visual aids are important when it comes to blogging. It not only supports the piece you wrote, but it appeals to those who only learn by seeing. By doing this you are broadening your horizons. Remember though you never want to clutter your blog with visuals.
5. Change it up
You don’t always have to write the same style blog. Use a variety of different ones like interviews, guests post, videos or even podcasts to keep your viewers intrigued and coming back to see what you will do with your blog next.
