The Do’s and Dont’s of Blogging

October 5, 2007

Following the advice I’m about to reveal to you should lure people to your blog and keep them there! The process is quite simple, following it will not only improve your traffic, but increase your blog’s wealth. I present to you the 5 Do’s and 5 Don’ts of blogging!

DO – Write valuable information to increase your content’s capacity. Write what you want not what other people want. Make it interesting that the commentators will remember. Remember the reason why people come to your blog is to read what you’ve wrote!

DON’T write information to fill space. Having one well written addictive article is worthless if the rest is garbage.

DO– Name creative bold titles. Don’t over do it with text such as and & but. Creative titles will catch someones eye. Example topic Cars – F Bodies Newest Design. If you didn’t know what a F Body is you wouldn’t know it’s a Camaro. Here’s one more – Eight Cylinders of pure Adrenaline. Remember a bold title is similar to a Hurricane sucking everything in!

DON’T create a title on a subject that is generic. Great example on making money online would be… Make Money Online With Me. That’s pathetic, and I believe you can do much more. Don’t use strapped for time as an excuse. Take your time, and deliver a knock out!

DO– Have a unique theme that is not cluttered with text and advertisements. If you cannot afford to purchase a custom theme simply download one and customize it to your liking. Think of this – Would you rather look and drive a Lamborghini Diablo or a Honda Accord? Remember once their at your site, it’s either the design or the content that will make them come back!

DON’T continue writing amazing articles on the old ass word press theme. Create a good atmosphere with an amazing vibe. Not the feeling of well I’ve seen this before or been there done that.

DO– Welcome user feedback. They’ve came to your Blog and their about to leave, encourage a comment! A great example is to leave space in an article/post for users to fill in. Remember once a friend always a friend (most likely) 🙂

DON’T respond to comments. This is a golden rule of how not to make a good community.

DO– Leave a reason for visitors to return. A great example is to offer something. Back links, Affiliates, eBooks, and Blogroll can be an example. Remember incentives will keep them returning!

DON’T do anything to offer help, and your visitors will think your an oaf. Most of what you should offer should help yourself and the community, am I right?

Increased Traffic With Comments

October 3, 2007

Not recieving much traffic? Would you like for more bloggers to visit your site?

A simple approach to increasing your traffic is to post meaningful comments throughout the network. It doesn’t matter if they’re good nor bad. A comment that has meaning is enough.

Not sure what to comment on?

The possibilities are endless. You can appraise a new theme/layout. Why you came to his/her blog.  Will you return to the blog? and why. What should be improved on the blog. Advice on how to promote/advertise the blog.

But where is the traffic?

The traffic comes from your input on other blogs. You create a relationship in the network. If your comment has good advice someone may click your link.  Just be nice, and someone may be nice to you!

After consideration I think it’s time to push forward and take blogging seriously. Now I wanted to be creative with the blog’s name. I still wanted to have the freedom to write anything that pleases me. So diversity had to be factored in. I had a great name idea, but it was taken. I thought of using Alexthegreat.com a knock off of Alexander the Great? Well the .com, and .net was taken. So I had to once again strap the brain bucket on, and think harder, creative, and more clever. Well seeing as a Blog Of Diversity was my subtitle why not use that? Damn’t twice! that name was taken as well (diversityblog.com, blogdiversity.com) So i’m feeling like wtf now? then I thought of blogodiversity.com. Can you guess what happened? yep it was shot. Then my loyal companion asked about blogindiversity.com yes of course it was available. So I snatched that purty domain quickly.  Now since I have my name established some of the things I need to work on are:

hosting, design, content, traffic, seo, marketing, advertising, and most importantly creating a relationship with the same niche.

So in a couple days things are going to get heavy…

Be on the lookout for www.blogindiversity.com !!


Publish it! Creative ways to get content

October 2, 2007

You like to write, but you don’t know what to write about? Well lets take a closer look…

What is your Blog Topic? The topic of your blog can be very demanding. Depending on the area you chose to create a blog can be over whelming. Just wanted to be part of the Bloggin Community and selected say – Finance, Making Money Online, SEO, Traffic Generation, Advertising, Fitness, Sports, Movies, Music, etc… Well now that we know what you’ve selected, how do you publish post after post every day? I’ve randomly picked Fitness as the topic.

Fitness – You can milk this topic until the udders are dead. It’s quite simple find areas that you’re familiar with, and just write. In fitness you can push to weight training, health of good fitness, supplements, nutrition accompanied by fitness, fitness clothing, fitness accessories. Now within those large categories lets dig deeper.

Weight training: gym memberships, machines vs. free weight, incline vs decline, time of training, rep ranges, targetted heart rate, targetted weight, training with percentages, on and on and on the list goes no body knows!

You see I took a major category, and exploited it into specific areas. It’s not difficult, you just have to be creative and Publish it!
