    Eight Essential Tips about Blogging: What HAT STYLE

    This is a quick guide for all of those people who want to learn how to blog. You can be a successful blogger if you follow one or more of the eight following tips:


    Make your entries as current as possible.
    If at all possible, you will want to make sure that you do enough research to find the latest information possible about whatever you choose to write about.

    In some cases it is fine to have references to past events, as long as you can make a way to connect those events to the present. It depends upon the subject matter and the reason you are writing what you are writing.

    Know the purpose of your blogs.
    You need to know the purpose of your blog. For instance, you may be writing to help others know how to make a certain craft project. You may also want to present original recipes that you have made, or you may want to have a blog that makes commentaries on current events. Whatever the reason is for your blog you need to know what that reason is.

    Make your entries reader friendly.
    You will want to write your blogs in a conversational manner that is easy to read. These entries need to be relatable, and something that your readers can understand.

    Keep your entries short. Your blog entries need to be as short as possible. Usually about 3-400 words are appropriate for most. They are short because they are usually designed for quick view.

    Organize your entries well. The entries of your blog should be organized well. This means that they should be presented on your blog site in a way that readers can easily find them again. In addition, the thought that is written in each blog entry should be organized enough that the reader would know what you are talking about.

    Edit your entries. The entries that you list should be free from grammatical and spelling errors. In addition, these entries should be spaced properly. Usually each paragraph is single spaced with one extra space in between paragraphs.

    Make them search engine accessible when possible. The entries that you create will need to be search engine ready. This means that you would add articles on the page that contain as close to the keywords that are relevant to your page as possible. This will take you some time and research if you want to make sure to use keywords that are not as competitive. Overture and Word tracker are great tools to use for t his.

    Make your blogs interesting enough. All blog entries should appeal to your primary audience. Also you are advised to constantly think of new material that would attract unique (first time) visitors to your site.

    You will also need to promote your site in as many ethical ways as possible. For example, you will want to ping other URLS, which means that they will know of new entries that are being displayed on your blog site. You will also want to place your blog in as many directories as possible, and even submit it to search engines. It may take awhile to be able to increase your page rank. However, every extra effort that you put into it will really help you quite a bit.

    One other aspect of blogging not mentioned above is that appearance matters. The graphics and layout of your blog pages, along with your images should fit with the subject of your blog. When you create blogs you will find that most blog sites are very easy to construct. Usually you just pick the colors and design out of already made templates and just fill in the text where you are told to do so. The reason many people like to create blogs is to help increase traffic to their site. In addition, they like to create them because they are moneymaking tools. In fact, people can even make money building free blog sites as well. How it works is that people place ads on their blog sites, which people click on. The money is usually either earned from the clicks on these ads or from commission earned through an ad link that was on a particular blogging site.
