What you need to understand about blogging

Discussion in 'Blogging' started by Drwolex, Aug 30, 2014.

  1. If i leave my most concise and expensive textbooks and rush to access information on the internet, my reasons could be that:

    â–  I am possibly looking for the most recent information about a particular topic and/or

    â– I am looking for plain, summarized and accurate points about that particular topic.

    Many visitors "people like me" will not stay in a site for long if the contents on the site is not different from the stories in printed text.
    You as a blogger, you don't need to lump articles together or embed your points in the body of the whole article.
    I made that mistake when i started newly, but now it's over.

    If you could break your articles into points in each paragraph then, you are going to encourage more readers to stay longer in your site and possibly turn them to regular visitors.

    Internet is entirely different from our real physical world where priority is given to grammar and lengthy talk.

    Write your article with plain language and avoid much grammar. Your visitors are not actually looking to copy your work, but they want to understand and deduce values from it. It will be a total discouragement if your readers need a dictionary for them to grab your points.
    Try to always have your readers in mind whenever you write your blog contents

    Very correct and aligns well with the fact that online readers don't read thoroughly, they skim instead, and it's in your best interest to tailor all your online content to skimmers.

    Each one of your threads convinces me a little more that you are testing some spinning software

    j/k Mate, your writing isn't clear and it is hard to read.
    Don't be discouraged, on second reading it sort of made sense but it seems you didn't follow your own advice.

    Yes, we wouldn't want to give anyone the impression that we actually know English. Not when blogging. This isn't the real physical world we're talking about, where people actually need to understand the point you're trying to make. Any nonsensical gibberish goes, 'round these parts.

    I agree with you. Same feeling after reading this thread.
     
  10. Testing or no testing you can say whatever that fall off your mouth. I wouldn't relate your reasoning with anything. If my posts hurt you, you could do whatever you like. I share my thought unconditionally and i have no time to impress any fucking creator.
     
  11. Hello Mr, genius! I ain't competing with you here, so you have no reason to say what you don't know. If a single member could benefit from my thread then, i am satisfied!

    Using simple speech is one of the corner stones of journalism. It's used to reach the largest possible audience, not just a handful of scientists. Knowing the language and grammar ... well, that would help a lot.

    Breaking your blog posts down into easy to read bullet points is a good way to organize your ideas and keep your reader on the page as it's always easier to read a list than page after page of wiki text. Unless someone is doing in depth research, most likely they will only want the highlights. So give it to them!

    its good idea to divide our long post to short posts. but i have a question. did you see problogger's blog? his posts are always very long. so why he doesn't do this?
     
  17. that's a brilliant question! to answer the question i will have to mention "authority". If you build good reputation for yourself from the beginning, then you might not need to struggle much in later time. problogger has been seen as authority blogger, so many people will endure to read their blog because they know they will gain much from every single post. again, majority of people that visit the site do so in other to learn and to be informed about the latest development in blogsphere. you should also know that reading for quick information and pleasure is quite different from reading to learn and understand. when you visit probogger site, you do so in order to learn and understand.
