Create a Great Blog . by Sandy Penny and others
I saw this great blog post today by Rachelle Gardener, 13 Simple Tips for a Better Blog
Make sure every post contains a single main idea. It can be supported by related ideas, but do not ramble. One idea.
Keep your posts brief. As little as 300 words can make a good blog post. Try not to go over 500 words, occasionally 600 but don’t do longer posts too often.
Those were Rachelle's first 3 tips. For more, go to her blog, but first, read on for my 8 top tips to create a great blog.
Decide why you're writing the blog first.
Are you just sharing? Do you want to monetize it and make some money?
Are you trying to get out important information?
Are you building your name and reputation in the marketplace?
The answers to these questions will change the approach to the content and change the layout you choose for your blog.
Target your audience carefully. If you write for too broad an audience, it will water down your appeal and do little to establish you as an expert.
... To be continued another day. Thanks for reading. Later, my friends.
