Posted on: November 18, 2011

So now that you’ve seen how a blog works, and what can be done, you should go ahead and make one of your own. Having a blog is a great way to get some experience in digital writing. Even if you don’t really want some digital writing experience, it’s a good thing to have anyway.Your blog can just be a great place to write about things you’re interested in. Either way, here is some advice from a fellow blogger to starting your own blog.To Blog or Not to Blog

1. Personality: Personalize your blog. Put your personality into it and make it your own. It will be more appealing than just the boring default layout if you personalize it to something that matches you.

2. Headlines: Make sure that you use catchy, attention grabbing headlines. If you make your headline interesting, it’s more likely that people will want to read your post.

3. Be You: When you’re writing, you don’t need to be stuffy and uptight. Your post doesn’t need to sound like a textbook, just be you. Write as if you were writing to a friend. That’s one of the great things about blogging, you don’t have to hide your personality.

4. Media: Use photos, video, sound bytes. All these things will make your post more appealing to the readers.

5. Keep it Short: When you’re writing, remember to keep your paragraphs short. When writing for online readers, remember no one likes to sit in front of the computer and read long paragraphs off the screen.

6. Infographics: Use infographics to embellish your stories. Make charts and take polls. Get the reader involved.

7. Comments: Are important. It is equally as necessary to give comments as it is to receive them. Always remember how good it makes you feel when you get comments, so don’t forget to return the favor.

8. Etiquette: Remember to have etiquette when writing, whether writing your own post, or writing a comment to someone. Don’t be rude or disrespectful to anyone. Always do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

9. Imagination: Be creative. Don’t be like everyone else. If you don’t put some creativity into your blog, nothing is going to make your blog stand out from others.

10. Enjoy yourself. No one is forcing you to write. Blogging should be something enjoyable, a hobby, so have fun.
