What have you been up to? I hope y’all had a splendid week. This week has been awesome for me. Every morning I am constantly reminded that I have no lectures, tutorials or ward rounds to attend. It feels so gooood, believe me, but as the day goes on, it gets a bit boring. I mean, you basically have the whole day to yourself to do absolutely anything or nothing if you chose. I love eet!
So for today’s post, I’ll be sharing a few of the blogging tips I have learnt so far.
Simply put, here they are:
Be passionate about it: This is so important, I consider it the most important tip. Without passion, you just might get frustrated. Having passion for blogging would enable you to be patient enough to see results.
Have a schedule: the importance of this cannot be over-emphasized. It allows you (the writer) to plan ahead and also helps your reader know when to expect new stuff from you.
Write posts way before the due time: This prevents writer’s block. Imagine if your post is due in 24 hours and you have no clues on what to write on?!
Interact with your readers: Try as much as possible to respond to comments posted on your blog. Yes, I know you are busy but you gotta still try, afterall you write for them right? Interacting with your readers would also help your blog grow.
Follow other bloggers: Blogging is not a one-man show, that’s why it’s called a blogging community. Look for bloggers with similar interest as you, read their articles, and you could be inspired to write your own piece. But please do not copy their content.
Evaluate yourself: There are times you have to pause and think. Be sure your content is up to the standard you want, be sure that your readers are still interested in your posts. If at any point you realize that things are not going according to plan, fix it!
That’s all for now. Same time next weeek. Ciao
