Blogging Tips Straight From The Journal Masters!


Blogging is fun and can make you money, too. Many websites exist that can help you launch a blog of your own. Whether you are trying to beef up your current blog or start a brand new one, you may find the hints and tricks offered below to be helpful. Now it’s time to utilize this information and have fun!
One thing to remember when developing a blog is to ensure that your readers know that they can depend on you. Try communicating frequently, and make it a habit. If you’ve built a connection with readers, you can be available to them more often. If you are tempted to abandon your blog, remember all of the readers that will be disappointed if you disappear.
Update your blog frequently. The biggest problem with new blogs is infrequent posts. Readers will get bored waiting for new posts. A great idea is to make a new blog update weekly and update your readers by email.
Regular Basis
Make sure that you add to your blog on a regular basis. Posting new content regularly helps you maintain your current reader base, as well as attract new readers and cause existing ones to return. If you don’t post new content on a regular basis, people won’t get into the habit of visiting your blog regularly. It’s a good idea to make at least one post each day.
Owning your domain name, instead of taking advantage of a free site, can serve to your advantage. It is not expensive to do this, and it will assist you in looking more professional. Domain names are very important, if you include words related to your blog in your name, it will make it easier to remember.
Embed pictures into your posts. Remember, a picture really is worth more than a thousand written words. That is definitely true in the area of running a blog. Words without images don’t communicate nearly as much as pictures do. So, make certain that you include images as much as possible.
Use lists to communicate ideas effectively in your blogs. Whether your blog is about the parts needed for overhauling a 1971 Mach Mustang’s Holley carburetor, or the ingredients needed to concoct a new cocktail for an upcoming party, lists are important. Lists provide information in a format that is easy to view and also easy to understand.
Use the tips contained in the above article to more effectively compose blogs of all types. Use these tips to improve your blog and enhance your users’ experience going forward. Begin using them to create or improve your blog, ensuring that it stands out from the competition.

"To get the right word in the right place is a rare achievement. To condense the diffused light of a page of thought into the luminous flash of a single sentence, is worthy to rank as a prize composition just by itself...Anybody can have ideas--the difficulty is to express them without squandering a quire of paper on an idea that ought to be reduced to one glittering paragraph."
Mark Twain

  • Today's #BookADay: WE PLANTED A TREE, written by Diane Muldrow and illustrated by Bob Staake, published by Golden Books/Random House. In addition to being an author, Diane is also editorial director at Golden Books/Random House.  I bought WE PLANTED A TREE at the 2010 SCBWI conference in Los Angeles, which was also the first conference at which I took a picture book writing workshop (taught by Diane Muldrow).

  • It’s impossible to choose a favorite thing in Jerusalem so far, but right now I believe it may be the Bulgarian feta with hyssop and sun-dried tomatoes that’s laid out every morning with the rest of our hotel’s immense breakfast spread. The skies at dusk are also spectacular — eerily Biblical, which, I keep remembering, makes sense. The night before last, Max and I stood looking out at the Wailing Wall as the sun set. Above us roiling tufts of gray clouds swept over a pale but insistently glowing blue. The wall was goldish in the waning light. The men had about three...

  • In the days leading up to the March 12 announcement of the 2014 NBCC award winners, Critical Mass highlights the thirty finalists. Today, NBCC board member Mary Ann Gwinn offers an appreciation of biography finalist S.C. Gwynne's "Rebel Yell" (Scribner). One mark of a great biography is a book that helps you comprehend someone who might be entirely different from you, the reader. The biographical subject might be confounding. Unlikeable. Infuriating. In short, someone who dances to an entirely different tune. Such is the case with the subject of S.C. Gwynne’s enthralling...
