I am not very experienced when it comes to skilled blogging, but there are few simple things which do not require rocket-science level expertise to understand but still the basics are the most ignored items – in all areas of life, isn’t it? I am pretty sure it works and want to share these experiences/learning with you assuming it may be of some use to you (at least in terms of reminding the basics)
Enjoy & Speak Well but Listen too
How will you feel if somebody is talking to you non-stop but refuse to listen you (when you speak they don’t pay heed). This is no different from social life, assume if you congratulate, wish, appreciate someone and they do not turn back or respond back. Will you go back to them again?
Reciprocate the Gesture
You may be a big time blogger or subject matter expert receiving lots of admiration and appreciation. But isn’t it fair to consider about your readers, they may be great artist in their area too. Give yourself a chance to read others and appreciate but only if you feel like (fake appreciation is a waste effort). I have seen excellent fitness bloggers who writes super good but their statistics shows they write for themselves only – Nobody read them because they don’t read others.
I am myself very bad at that but can not deny this is probably the entry door like a super sale hoarding 😀 . Better visuals, images, videos, introduction and much more to explore. One honest tip is to keep the theme simple, you will find many blogs with 100 of images and even if you want to like or comment you’ll have to struggle how to that. Try to choose something of choice which is simple too.
Be Honest in your posts
Our brain knows only what we have gone through already or the dreams we have seen so far. So it is okay to write on something after being inspired but avoid copying it, the fact should come from you only and it should reflect your unique personal opinion just like signature. Afterwards leave it to audience if they like or hate!
Be Honest in your comments
Last but not the least, consider a scenario by assuming you are in a very vulnerable situation needing money or help and you write a post for that seeking help from your readers. Funny part is what you’ll get most of the times is Likes, no comments and no help. This is just like going to somebody’s funeral or visit in hospital and mocking them by saying Wow..I liked it. Isn’t it a blunder? This happens for a simple reason – you press like without even reading to grab the attention without wasting your precious time and assuming others to read, follow and appreciate you or may be at-least give a like back in exchange. Both of the likes ends up in waste.
