3 Tips For Getting Better At Blogging


You may have a blog that’s been around a long time that you are always looking to improve, or perhaps you just started your own blog and want to make it great right out the gate. Either way there is a lot you can do to become a better blogger. Here are 3 simple tips to help you with that mission.

Create An SEO Friendly Website

You can have the most beautiful, creative, informative, and well-written blog in the world, but none of that really matters if no-one ever sees it. In order to get real traffic coming to your blog (and not just people you know), you will need to make sure your blog website is SEO friendly. If you are unfamiliar with search engine optimization, think of it as a way to use the internet in the way it’s meant to be used. Market yourself and your blog without having to do any extra work by utilizing this feature. 

If you are skilled at coding and well versed in SEO, this is probably something you can easily set up yourself. However, you might need to enlist the help of a professional web designer to make your blog site more SEO friendly. Any money you spend on this will be well worth it when you see how much more traffic your website is getting! 

Take A Writing Class

There are so many blogs out there these days, it seems that anyone just thinks they can start a blog even without any writing skills. It’s important to remember, however, that a well-written blog will always do better than a poorly written one – and if you want to look professional and want your blog to be successful, you may need to sharpen up your writing skills. 

Luckily, this is easier to do than you may think! Consider taking a writing course at your local community college or find a free one online. You may be surprised at how much better you’ll get with a little practice and instruction, and before you know it your blog will have more dedicated readers than you ever imagined possible. 

Stick To A Niche

A good blog should read less like a diary and more like a travel journal. Find a niche such as cooking, fashion, travel, politics, etc. and stick to it when it comes to your blog posts. Of course, there are no rules and you can stray as off topic as you want to, but sticking to a niche will keep your blog posts shorter and more concise and will also draw in a specialized audience who will continue to come back to read more. 

Just like with anything else, getting better at blogging won’t happen overnight. Just continue to work at it, apply the above tips, and soon your blog will start to flourish.
