Do you want to share with us, what were some of your blogging obstacles? How did you overcome them?
Rise to the Level of Your Blogging Expectations
Just because blogging is a strong trend doesn’t mean that daily engagement in creating new content is always the best choice for everyone. Before you commit to this task and way of living, you should ask yourself if this is right for you and your business.
Fashion related website owners should adopt a daily frequency of publishing fresh content in their blogs and social media channels. The demands for new content are huge!
Not to mention that Beauty & Health, Travel, DIY, Magazines, Home & Decoration and News industry are facing the pressure of posting multiple times per day. There is no human out there that can cope with the demands of a daily multi-posting schedule. Only teams can deal with this routine!
Make your Closures Pretty
It would be impossible to write a blog post to the infinity. Before you reach the end of your blog post, help your readers & visitors to get ready for the end. Walk them to the exit door with grace and in good manner. Share your personal opinion or provide more resources to read. Close your blog post with the best terms.
In some cases, while you are writing your conclusion, you may add a call to action. Use the final lines as an invitation to participate on the conversation. Ask from your readers to share their point of view on the topic. Or better yet, seek for more information through their experience.
One last word: Respect your readers
To be honest, I am fed up with old school closure practices, where the reader is pushed to download something or subscribe somewhere. I prefer to read good blog posts and learn something new. I give my time and attention, so I want to receive knowledge. Only.
Do you Have the Blogging DNA?
After reading all the above, I have to ask you if you have it in your bones. Blogging seems easy but has a way to filter who is cut for it.
Do you see yourself as a self motivated person? Can you stand the discipline? Can you follow a plan like a soldier? Can you deliver even if you are having the worst day of your life? For me… is yes! What about you?
