Some tips for successful blogging.  Many people do not know exactly how to blog or how to blog right.  I have never blogged before my Public Relations class here at Indiana State University and did not know the first thing to do when trying to write a blog.  I’m going to list a few tips that I have researched to help myself be a better “blogger”.

The design of your blog page is very important, it lets the readers know that you are a serious blogger and keeps the readers interested in what you have to say.  Keep your design simple, do not put too many links on your page, avoid ugly advertisement, and keep it professional.

The content that you display is important, learning what your readers are interested in and what they react to best in your blogs.  Give your readers value and make your blogs posts clear, useful and actionable. Write as if you are speaking to a friend, do not use jargon or words that people do not understand, use simple language because you do not want to confuse the reader.

Feedback, ask you readers how you can help them, or ask them at the end of your blogs what they want you to write about next.  Add your readers to facebook or twitter to better communicate what they want and to get to know them better.

Inspire your readers, choose a main topic for your blog but have at least three to eight sub-topics for each post.

In conclusion, I learned the way that you design and build your blog page, the content that is used, the feedback that is given to the readers and inspiring the readers to come back are just a few effective ways in writing an successful blog.  To learn more tips about blogging it is only a few clicks away on the internet, all you have to do is research a small amount and you can dramatically change your blogging experience.
