Yesterday a dear friend asked me for some advice on writing a new blog. I wanted to write this post this week anyways so today I will be giving everyone reading the five basic practices that I have been using to better my blog. Some of these are from my own experiences and others were taught to me, but never-the-less I hope you guys can learn from these things, and make your fresh blog better or make your year old blog pop again. No matter the level of your blog, you can use this post.

     5. The right search engine– It is important that you are comfortable with the blog website or engine that you are using. In order for you to get the best out of the blog you will need to know how to operate the blog. If you are having problems with one engine, make the move. I was at Blogspot, but the makers of Google failed to give me some of the smooth movements through my blog, so I couldn’t make the blog my blog. If you can’t make the blog your blog, then you will lose interest in the blog.

    4. Material– If you are a blogger this usually means that you have something to say, but the biggest question is “What?” What will you be talking about in your blog? Who is your targeted audience? and most importantly, Is it something that you are comfortable with talking about? Will your audience understand what you will be talking about? So many bloggers think their blog will go viral instantly, but it won’t. You will need to start with your close friends first, then as you post material, the groups of people will come in. But at first you will need material that connects to who you can, not who you want to. My only advice is to write about 7 post first and to post them all at once, in order for your blog to have more than one post for the travels on the internet to see. Most people will leave a blog that looks empty, because they feel like you have abandoned the blog yourself.

    3. Schedules– Once you have a few blogs on your page, the best thing that you can do is get a blogging schedule and stick to it! I have chose to post everyday on my blog, but do what is comfortable for you. The main reason that the schedule helps you so much is due to the fact that the audience will know when to expect a post from you! If you are having troubles with knowing when to post there is something called insights that will be discussed shortly.

    2.  Promotion– I can’t tell you how important it is to promote your blog. Many blogs will go unseen because they are hidden behind a shy blogger. But if you are wanting people to read it, don’t expect them to search you put the blog in their face, make them gobble it up. Meaning this, share your blog onto every social media site that you can, find friends and family to give your blog a share. (Anything that you share is seen in the first thirty minutes, this is why it is important to know your audience.) Do giveaways in order to get shares. Finally, find bloggers that you can guest blog for. This will help to reach those who your arms can’t reach. Promotion is the biggest thing that will make or break your blog. Do it!

    1. Check your stats– Football players spend most hours in the locker room watching film after a game, this isn’t fun at all but it helps them get better. You are the football player and you need to watch your game film (Stats) in order for you to know what people like and don’t like. If you just posted a blog about politics and only got one view to where you posted a blog on Fallout and got fifty views. This means that your crowd is responding better to the video game next to your view on politics and you should absolutely do another post about Fallout. But if you are having troubles with this and you’re using WordPress, you can now see a new tool called Insights. This tell you what your busiest day of the week and at what time in the day you are getting the most hits. With this tool, you can now post during that time, and get the maximum amount of clicks. 

     It can be hard to start a blog at first, this is why the five things above are important. You can use these things to either better yourself or to get you off on the right foot. If you do these five things I will guarantee that you will see results. Welp I am off to write the outline for tomorrows post, can’t wait to see you guys!
