7. If you are new to Blogging, you might want to start with a WordPress.com blog after which you can switch over to a self-hosted WordPress blog. The following are three reasons for you to use WordPress:

  • It is used by a large number of people.
  • Recognition and reputation.
  • Strong support.

8. Avoid or try to minimize grammar mistakes by proofreading – Poor grammar can lead to a frustrated user. For example, a user would visit your website looking for value but unfortunately the content is all mixed up with misplaced “has” and “their” and other terrible spellings. Would that user want to keep reading? Probably not.

9. Add rich media content to your blog – For example, make use of the power of Youtube and other available media sources. Utilize and match them accordingly into your blog content.

10. Understand your role and stick to it – Ensure that you have a clear definition and understanding of what your blog is about. The second important thing is always keep your blog posts related to your topic.

11. Set a time slot for your blogs – There is no hard and fast rule as to how often one should blog. Just make sure that you put in to practice whatever schedule you has planned.

12. Reply to comments on your blog – One good way of letting other people know that your blog is “active and running” is to reply to questions or comments posted by your fellow blog readers. It gives them the opportunity to interact and engage in conversation with you and other readers. More importantly, this can lead to increasing the actual number of people who comment on your blog.

13. Make navigating through your blog easier for your readers – For example, if a user takes more than three seconds to find the Home or Back button in your blog, this is a sign that your site’s navigation needs to be improved. Ofcourse, neglecting this issue will only damage your blog traffic.
