25 better blogging tips for the small blog

After a long long time I’m publishing this post on my blog. But from now I’ll try to be constant on my blog. Thanks for your support. So let’s get started with Blogging tips.
Be genuine.
Triple-check your spelling, double-check your grammar, give it a once-over for clarity.
Build a visible relationship with your readers.
Invite your readers to join your blog community. Often. Display prominent links to your other social profiles.
Give your readers a way to contact you directly: an email address or a contact form.
Post on a regular schedule so your readers know when to check in. If you’re sporadic, tell them that on the front page and have a prominent link to your RSS feed.
If your blogging platform allows it, use the post scheduler feature which will allow you to write your post a day, a week or any other time before it publishes to your blog. Auto-publishing at midnight gives your post the entire day to attract visitors and links.
If your blogging platform does not include a post scheduling feature, it’s time for a new blogging platform. May I suggest WordPress?
If you send flowers to your readers every third Friday, and I arrive as a new reader on the fourth one, how will I know what to expect in three weeks? Tell me on the front page.
Acknowledge that not everything happens in the world in your personal time zone. If you say something like “I’m gonna have this posted by 7 a.m. tomorrow” throw in a Greenwich Mean Time reference. You have readers in Belgium.
You know you have readers in Belgium because you have a statistics tracker, which is crucial to analyzing how well your blog plans are working out.
Did you know that readers very rarely click links in the sidebar? And almost never click the ads? Clicky, my stats analyzer, tracks outbound links, so that’s how I know all that.
Visit other blogs and join their communities. If you like a post, don’t just laugh silently to yourself or cry yourself to sleep from its poignancy: tweet it, share it, link to it. Smaller blogs could sure use the exposure, especially from one of the larger ones.
If you use FeedBurner, you can track how many people read your feed each day. Statistically, you don’t need personal witnesses to your animated .gifs and musical opening number.
Speaking of flashy, splashy Web design: maybe tone it down a little? Most blog traffic is during corporate work hours. If your blog design is a big red flag that I’m blog surfing and not working, I won’t visit it and neither will most other working readers.
Check the settings for your RSS feed and make sure the full text of your post can be read off-blog, not just an excerpt. People use readers out of necessity or personal preference. Don’t force feed them your click-throughs.
Pay close attention to page load times, browser compatibility, stupid error messages and hosting company down times. Choose a host by its compatibility with and technical knowledge of your platform.
Write what you know. If your topic requires a boat load of research, please research it thoroughly.
If you are, like me, a lazy blogger who likes making it up as you go along, avoid the hard news commentary.
Some people think if they label it opinion and scream free speech at it, facts are optional.
That is, in fact, untrue.
Your pets and family, on the other hand, are completely optional, yet perfectly blogworthy topics.
Microniche blogs and commercially successful blogging are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
Write well.
Write openly.
Thank you so much for reading one of my posts. I hope you’ve found incredible value in it. Stay connected & I have lots more great stuff to share with you.
