Writing high-quality articles for the blog that you liked and would be quite understandable to the reader is very difficult. It depends on them how much you interest your audience and how many visitors will come daily. Of course, the more articles you write, the better they will become with time. Experience will come gradually. However, do not be afraid that visitors will not appreciate your work. Constantly work on mastering the chosen subject and the quality of your articles, then the result will exceed all your expectations. In this section, I will try to give some of the most significant, in my opinion, tips for beginning bloggers to help answer the question of how to blog.
When blogging take care of feedback from your readers. In the best case, it can be framed as an opportunity to leave comments under each article. This way you can see how interesting your work is for visitors. In addition, it would be nice to answer questions and leave your opinion to the most meaningful comments. In this way, you will show the vitality of your blog and interest in topics.
Do not neglect spelling and punctuation, for this today there is a large selection of means of text verification. The reader is not very comfortable to see obvious gaps in the knowledge of the Russian language from the author. Use the wealth and vocabulary of the Russian language. Synonymizers to help you.
Write on non-broken topics. It is not necessary for the hundredth time to raise questions that have already been passed along and across on the pages of the global network. Of course, to find a completely untouched topic on the Internet, and even with interest for readers, today is almost impossible. But before you write about anything, make sure at least that this topic is not exhaustively scoring the top ten in search engines. Check out the articles of competitors to make sure your material is unique enough.
Prepare for information before writing the article. Read some materials related to your topic. Refer to the most reliable sources (for example, Wikipedia), so as not to discourage readers with facts taken from your head.
Sketch an outline of your future article on paper or in an electronic editor. Only in this way, you can be sure that dedication to the process will not lead you away. Approximate content also saves time and indicates the main directions for the article.
Get rid of all the distractions while writing articles, try to create a more relaxed atmosphere. In such conditions, your thoughts will flow easily and with concentration.
Readers like articles in which the author refers to personal experience. It would be great if the material is supported by illustrations proving this or that point of view.
Read your article some time after its completion. Surely you will find a bunch of errors that need to be fixed. It will be of great help if, after your correction and before the publication in the blog, the article is read by another person with a “non-salient” eye.
Place your materials evenly over time. Make it a rule to publish a certain number of articles per week or month, depending on your possibilities. Search robots that will continue to lead to your visitors should get used to the constancy of the information posted on the blog. Say, 3-4 articles per week with intervals of 1-2 days between each article or any other graph of density, but with uniform intervals. Write a few articles and set the exact time of publication. Many site management systems allow you to specify the time of publication. So you will be sure that the article will be released on time on the blog, regardless of your time.
Do not neglect criticism. I would even say, look for it intentionally. A novice blogger, without the experience of creating good texts, will make many mistakes at the beginning of his journey. Its task should be the need to find and eliminate errors, with the help of its readers.
Make blocks on the main page with links to the most interesting and popular articles. Almost every CMS has such tools or the ability to install them.
Do not overload the site with unnecessary plug-ins, modules and flash “toys.” I’m scared to look at blogs hung with graphics and animation, reminiscent of the New Year tree, and not information resources. Remember that the reader comes to you for information, and not just to gawk at your “beauty”. The same goes for banner contextual advertising.
Pity the eyes of your users. Use the right fonts and do not make too bright a background design with pale colors of fonts.
