If you run a blog of your own, you are probably keen to try and make sure that it is as successful as possible. Of course, that much goes without saying, but what people are often less clear on is how to actually make that happen. One of the ways to try and work towards this is to think about what it is that a good blog needs and a good place to start for that purpose are at other successful blogs. By studying successful blogs, you can hope to make your own significantly better by merely focusing on what kinds of qualities they have which you will want to make use of yourself.
In this post, we are going to take a look at a few such qualities, so that you can start to think about which of these you will try to bring about in your own blog.
For one thing, a truly successful blog is almost always going to have some kind of a theme. Whether this theme is strict or loose is of course up to you, but as long as you have one, you will find that it all holds together much more effectively and that people are considerably more likely to want to return to it again and again to read as much as they can.
This theme will often be based on your personality, or it might be what you hope to write about. If you have expertise in a particular field, for instance, then you will probably write about that. Whatever it is, once you have decided on it – and you are sure it is something you can write about – you need to stick to it, and you need to make it clear that that is the theme of the blog. Getting someone to design you a logo and strapline in the right theme will do a lot here, and really make it look professional, so consider that.
You want to think of it as a kind of branding for the blog so that you can be sure that you are going to be able to stick to it. This makes it easier to find regular readers, and it means that you will struggle less to find things to write about in the future as well.
As a blogger, your primary concern should always be your reader, and if you are not setting up your blog to be as reader-friendly as possible, you will want to think about making some changes along the way. There are a lot of things you can do to make sure that your blog is going to be truly reader-focused, and the more of these you take on board, the easier you will find it to keep bringing in new readers to your blog day after day.
One of the first steps you should take is to get in touch with a UX agency, who will specialize in being able to make any customer’s experience on the website as good as possible. That is the same basic process whether it’s customers for a big business site, or readers for your blog, so their help is definitely going to be worth seeking out. The more reader-focused you can make your blog, the more successful it is likely to end up being.
There is nothing worse than a blog which is not being updated often. Once you start following a particular blog, you want and expect to be able to read new material from it fairly frequently. If that does not happen, then you kind of feel a little short-changed, which only ends up meaning that you will struggle to continue following it, or simply that you will forget it exists after a time. So make sure that you are doing your readers the basic courtesy of updating your blog frequently.
As long as you are doing that,
As long as you are working on these issues, you will find that you can create a blog which is going to be truly fantastic, and that you will have people reading it every day.
