Hardcore Blog Writing
When you think of blog writing, you may think of the mundane tales of your every day housewife, but I am here to tell you that there is a means of writing a hardcore blog that will get the attention of everyone who sees it! If you’re interested in creating a blog that will stand out in the blog writing world, you’re in the right place!
First and foremost, you want either your own domain for blog posting or one of the many free services available for the freelance blog writer. Next, you will want to create a look that will set you apart. While you don’t have to be a whiz with computer programming, it can definitely help if you are! The layout of a blog is extremely important, especially if you anticipate readers.
Blogging Tip: Consider posting your articles to a traffic system like Blogging Underground so you get textually relevant links.
When creating the overall format of your blog, you will want to steer clear of any brightly colored font. While yes, many people can read it, it can become straining on the eyes and you will loose many readers this way. Stick with the basics, either white on black or black on white. Any other option can become difficult to read or will steer your readers away all together.
With that said, you can always use pictures and different ways to format your writing to create the initial interest. Generally, blog writers will offer images that directly resemble the topic they are writing on, but that isn’t the only way.
As a whole, you can offer a single image or layout throughout your entire blog, allowing your writing to take center stage to any pictures on your blog posting.
The next method of generating a hardcore blog is to set yourself apart through your writing. Create something that the reader can’t say no to. Give them no option but to read your writing! No, that doesn’t mean to hold your friends and family captive until they have read every paragraph about your latest trip to the local malt shop. Instead, try thinking outside of the box. If you want to write about your daily life, amplify the differences.
An example of a difference in a blog posting would be to pump up the volume on the strangest moment of your day. You know we all have them! Whether your shoelace became untied and you found your life-long love, or someone told the greatest joke at your workplace. The day in the life of people is always interesting, you simply have to pay attention to what happens. This is one of the first steps to creating a blog, being attentive and willing to take inspiration by the horns!
In short, the best way to make a hardcore blog posting is by being the best blog writer you can be. Allow the reader a small glimpse into your daily life or your opinion on any one matter. Be yourself, because there is nothing or anyone that is more hardcore than a blog writer who has his or her own opinion on any subject they may blog about.
Now that you have it in your head that you will be creating a blog, you of course will need a bit of help in creating an interesting blog. While it may sound easy, you need to remember that there are many other blogs out there. The unfortunate fact is, that as the years go on, there is more and more competition for the same readers among blog writers.
Despite the fact that anyone can participate in blog posting, not everyone will make it to the top of the blogging pyramid. In fact, little more than half of the blog writers out there will gain the notoriety that those who participate in blog writing want. But, if you create a blog that will set you apart from the rest of the crowd, you may have a fighting chance in the wonderful world of blogging!
So, how do you set about creating an interesting blog? Well, first, you will need to have a topic to write on. Even the personal bloggers will have a general topic that they follow. Whether it is about a hobby, their daily life at work, or even specific products, there are hundreds of thousands of things to write about, which will you choose?
One of the more popular blogs out there is the personal blogs. Not only does it provide the reader with something unique to read, it is something that the everyday person can relate to as they are reading it. But, that isn’t all you have to do! In fact, you need to have at very least a basic understanding of your local language before your blog will go anywhere. Your blog can hold the most entertaining story in the world, but wouldn’t gain much in the way of readership if it is poorly written or doesn’t flow well.
Even if you aren’t an undergraduate in language, it is still possible to learn enough to ensure that your blog ebbs and flows well from one paragraph to the next. Even if you’d prefer not to learn too much about grammar or spelling, there is software that will do it for you! How fortunate are we? That anyone can become a writer, no matter what kind of education they may or may not have.
Once you have your general topic and a better understanding of language and what makes things interesting, you can then start laying out the overall feel of your blog. I find that having music playing and a hot cup of coffee at my side helps to get the creative juices flowing. While this may not always be the case for everyone, finding something that helps you to get your muse ready to rock-and-roll is always a great idea!
Lastly, you will want a place to put your blog, if you haven’t already found one. Whether you opt to have your own domain or use one of the many free services, there are plenty of viable options for you to explore in blog submitting
Blogging A to Z
Just like anything else in the world, there is a method to the madness of blog writing. But, have you ever tried to figure out the A-Z of being a blog writer? No? Well, I have! Not only will it provide you with a little insight, it should help you to begin posting your very own blog.
Always keep your readers in mind. Remember, without readers, you have no blog! It is of extreme importance for you to cater to their reading needs, without having to sacrifice your own personal vision.
Blogging, like other writing, is an art form. It should always be treated with the same respect an artist has for their brush. It is your way of “painting” the ultimate personal picture with words.
Creativity is absolutely essential for any blogger. Not only will it help you to get the words brewing, it is what will keep your audience entertained.
Don’t get discouraged. Just because it isn’t coming out right the first time, doesn’t mean that it won’t in the future. Keep trying, you can and will create the perfect blog for you!
Express yourself! The most entertaining blogs happen when the blog writer posts intimate details or when they are candid. Offer yourself up on a platter to your readers and they will eat it up!
Follow your instinct! If you wouldn’t want your mother reading it, chances are, it shouldn’t be included in your blog. While there are plenty of controversial writers out there, you must always be careful about what you post!
Grammar is of course essential to a well-flowing blog of any kind. If you submit a blog that doesn’t read correctly, not many readers will be back for more.
Hone your skills! Just like anything else, fine-tuning your writing skills can only bring positive response. You can do this by researching different blogs and other writing sources online or at your local library.
Increase your traffic! There are many ways to do this first and foremost; you should use key words, which will help bring your blog to the people. Other great marketing tools include social networking sites and well-known blogging websites.
Joking can be a great way to lighten the mood in any blog. While it isn’t necessary, if you find that comedy within, you will help to increase the popularity of your blog!
Kill temptation to steal blogs! Use your own stories or personal points of view to fill the space of your blog post.
While these are just a few things to consider, the rest should be pretty self-explanatory, love what you do, make the best of your blogging, normalcy is boring, open your mind to blogging, practice makes perfect, quality over quantity, research, story telling, unique insight, vernacular know-how, worth to the reader, x marks the spot with writing, always keep your readers guessing with the proverbial hunt for treasure!
Of course, the last couple of things you must have A-Z with blog writing is yourself and a bit of zest. Without either of these last two things, your blog would be boring and wouldn’t be worth reading!
Remember the rule: Write a blog post that is informative, that will entertain, that is sincere. Your audience will follow you and look forward to your postings. This is how you get started. It really boils down to good content!
New technique is killing it! Retargeting – have you heard of it?
