All bloggers, old and new, amateur and professional alike, only have one thought and one purpose in mind – to entertain their blog readers and keep them alive (what I’m trying to say is to keep them active, updated and always keep them coming back to their blog for more). And to do this, preferably the most obvious thing is taken into consideration – write about the most interesting topics, and to get off the post that hurts your readers and make your blog worth the read. Just like links being the fuel of SEO, blog readers are the life of a blog. And every blogger knows that, and every blog should take that into their minds. The concept is plainly simple; every blogger must take care of their readers and everything starts with just a single blog post.
But how do you do that? Basically, the steps are relatively simple ad reevaluation is a necessity – always. How? Okay, here’s how..
Know What Your Blog Readers Really NEED
Oftentimes, blog readers keep on reading the contents within simply because you’ve got what these people are really looking for. But how do we know what our readers really need? Simple. You just have to go on with the trend! If you find out that a certain post about “How to Make Your Salad to the Max” really works, then perhaps you should try and give it a follow-up. Most of the time, what readers really need are How-To’s and tutorials, and sometimes, posts with a pinch of entertainment.
Ask Questions and Let Blog Readers Figure them Out – Just Don’t Overdo It
In every blog post, it is somewhat essential to ask your blog readers and have them answer your question on the comment box below. Just always keep in mind that too much is too much, so avoid overdoing it – it could only hurt you in the long run. Basically, you can ask a question or two just to keep them guessing; perhaps the most ideal spot to place the question would be on the conclusion point of your post.
Evaluate and Reevaluate
Aristotle was once asked, “What is the cure for love at first sight?” Guess what the great philosopher answered in return? “Go on and take a second look, this time, much closer”. What do we learn from it? It simply means that a single evaluation of your post is not enough. You might think it's perfectly fine at first glance, but you can rest assured some minor flaws will be left behind. Check it once, and then check it once more. No writer gets a perfect write-up without any evaluation done, so it is definitely essential to take a second look and figure out which one’s went wrong before you hit the publish button and make it hot off the press.
Just be Yourself – Don’t Drag Yourself to the Limits
Sometimes, when we feel like we can bring it on to the next level, then we do it. But if you feel like you really can’t, then don’t push too hard. Being the you who you really are, I mean being genuine and true to yourself brings forth the confidence of writing a well-organized content that would definitely not hurt your blog readers. If you push way too hard, you’ll end up having a crappy blog post for sure.
REMEMBER: No one wants to read a blog post that would only be a pain for them, and I know you don’t want to as well. Somehow, it’s always important to think of your readers, what they need and what they really feel, most of the time.
So, have my idea paid off? Was it worth your read? Did it hurt you? I just hope it turned out well. You can give me critics if you want; I’m definitely open to all of them. Good day and God bless!!
