It’s important to remember that as in all things, quantity isn’t everything when writing a blog; whether you’re getting gripes of your chest or letting people know about new products your company is going to introduce, you shouldn’t write just to write. A hundred words or a thousand, nobody’s going to read you if what you write doesn’t grab and hold their attention. For this reason, you should have a pretty good idea of what you plan to say before you log in to the system and start writing. Of course, as the words flow onto the page, you may think up a better way to say what needs to be said. That’s fine. Just remember to keep it pertinent and don’t change your subjects mid-sentence or paragraph.
Once you’ve written your blog, you’re going to want people to read it, right? How do you get that to happen? Well, you can cross your fingers and hope that someone stumbles across it, or you can help yourself by adding Tags. Tags are keywords that people use in search engines and on the site to find topics and subjects with blogs to read. As an example, since this particular posting contains some writing tips, I would use words such as: tips, writing tips, blogging tips, writing help, blogging help, tutorial, blog tutorial. See the idea? Now if someone needs some tips on how to write crisply and they type in writing help, this post will more than likely show up pretty high in the search results. That’s it for now folks. If I come up with anything new to tell you, I’ll be back. In the meantime, keep up the writing, keep that content coming!
