1. Spell Check!
For a credible and professional blog, correct spelling and grammar are extremely important. Unless you purposely misspell something for stylistic purposes, you need to edit your writing. Misspellings and incorrect grammar can distract the reader from your content.
2. Hypertext your links
When using a reference link, do not just copy/paste the link in the blog. Instead, write a word or a phrase that is relevant, and hypertext it so that with clicking the text, it takes the reader directly to the website.
3. Include interesting/relevant pictures/visuals
Individuals in our generation are usually in a hurry and so they skim any kind of reading. Pictures and graphics break up long blocks of gray text, making skim reading a document much easier.
Commenting on other blogs not only helps you to see more examples of blogs, but helps increase traffic to your own blog.
Cookie cutter and methodical writing can be read multiple places. Readers want a new perspective, and a fresh opinion.
6. Write while you are in a good mood
When you are in a positive mood during writing, it shows through with how you say things!
7. Be Yourself
The more you write, the better you will become at being yourself and allowing your personality to come out in your writing.
8. Make it easy to read
Don’t go for crazy colors or crazy fonts. You want your content to actually be readable and not give your readers an eyestrain.
9. Keep a scratch pad
Usually when I am out and about, a sudden wave of inspiration hits me. It makes me want to run to the nearest computer and quickly write a stellar blog post on the spot! However, usually we aren’t near a computer when this inspiration hits. So write your idea on a notebook you keep near you.
10. Variety is the spice of life
Vary the lengths and styles of your blog posts. Keep it fresh. Keep it exciting
