Have you ever written a blog that was never read? Then you know how frustrating that is. If you’re just starting, you want to avoid this situation. Here are some ways to make a good, interesting blog.

    • Steps

      1. 1

        Choose an interesting topic. Boring topics generally are not good for blogs, unless you are one of few people who are genius writers; those who can create beautiful prose even when writing about the most mundane things.

    • Pick a topic that you know and are passionate about, one that other people can relate to. If you like video games, for example, write one detailing your experiences playing them. Note that this kind of blog is different from a ‘Dear Diary’ blog discussed below.
    • Avoid writing your own biography. A “Dear Diary” blog isn’t interesting to other people unless you are a really significant person. Think about it: who would really want to know what you ate for dinner? This kind of blog is self-indulgent and gratuitous; it does not offer anything to the people reading it.
  1. 2

    Funny blog posts tend to become viral. Humorous charts, pictures, and videos are great supplements to your text.

  2. 3

    Do not rehash or rewrite blog posts from famous blogs. Try to think of unique things to write about, or write an opposing view on a certain subject.

  3. 4

    Instead of just repeating news reports (as most bloggers tend to do), write your own commentary. What do you think of an issue? Offer your views and analysis. Ask you readers what their opinions are too. This brings us to:

  4. 5

    Make your blog interactive. Provide your readers some way to express themselves by letting them comment on your articles and voting on polls.

  5. 6

    Write clearly. Be conscious of grammar and spelling. Write the standard way; it is irritating to read words and sentences like ‘tHiS iS a CoOl SeNtEnCe,’ or ‘Wh@t are you D0ing?’ for example.

EditTips

  • Make sure you have good visuals. No one likes to read a black and white blog. There can be pictures or videos and they do not necessarily have to be of you.
  • Be honest and true to your views. This makes you a sincere and reputable writer. In being one you’ll eventually have a loyal readership, one that will keep coming back to your blog and recommend it to others because they know they’ll get high-quality and helpful reads every time.
  • Inform you readers from the beginning if an article is sponsored. People hate being led-on and tricked into reading a blog post that they expect to be helpful, just to realize that it is a subjective and promotional one.

EditWarnings

  • Never plagiarize other blog posts, news articles, reviews, and books. Copying and pasting articles and passing them off as your own is illegal and immoral. Provide proper attribution if you must quote another’s work.
