Discover 7 Secrets To A Popular Blog

  1. 1.
  2. 2. Imagine speaking to a group of people you consider your friends about an "important" topic and all you get is an uncomfortable silence. Why? You did not pique their interest.
  3. 3. Anyone you engage in conversation is investing an important currency - their time. It has to be worth it. If not and they can, they will withdraw their investment.
  4. 4. Sometimes you think you are saying the same things to the same people repeatedly. I do. You cannot find another exciting or intriguing topic. It is just work getting something interesting to say.
  5. 5. Quite by chance I found seven (7) ways to inject excitement and interest in what I write with a corresponding increase in blog participation. Let me share them with you.
  6. 6. 1. Take the opposite position! If you preach on and on about the wonders of walking in the morning, find reasons for walking at nights or evenings and blog about that!!
  7. 7. 2. Do not re-invent the wheel. Read media blogs and see what is "hot" on the minds of people, see which topics are sparking interest. This is a sign that those topics are on the minds of people who read blogs! Even if it is not directly related to your niche, write a post about one of these hot topics and I guarantee that you will find a way to some how relate it to the interests of your audience.
  8. 8. 3. Use a "family story" to create or sell an idea. You can think of many events in your family which gave you pause for thought and from which you learnt an important life lesson. Start by stating the lesson in general terms then illustrate with a story. People prefer to hear stories over a lesson.
  9. 9. 4. Be calm. Every idea will not be an instant hit. Think of your blog site as constructing a building, from the foundation to the roof. A building in which your readers find value and interest. So lay your foundation carefully and make it a habit to put your readers' interest first. They will come back for more.
  10. 10. 5. Check the current posts. Do some research. Check blogs and see what hot topics are being discussed. Summarize the key arguments. Then include them in your blog, making sure you credit the sources. Rest assured that there will be a linkback from the originators and you will be seen as authoritative.
  11. 11. 6. Look for the Gaps. Just as you would when assessing the competition's products prior to creating your own, look for the "gaps" your competitors are leaving in their post
  12. 12. 7. Read the Comments on Authority Blogs. Go to these sites, thoroughly read the comments and use the keywords mentioned in the comments. This will give you a good start for an idea or topic which will be of interest to your readers and will draw traffic to your site.
  13. 13. So there you have it - 7 ways to engage your next blog visitor. Try it for yourself - and see if these tactics don't generate some backlinks to your site!
