Tips beginning blogger
Boging loves personality. He does not like his face hidden behind the seven seals and reluctantly coming to contact, as well as an ordinary person leading a measured life. Open people, tell us about yourself, your classes, vision of the world, ambitious plans for life. You can even tell about your cat.
Being secretive now unlikely, so you don’t get into the blogging. Lay out the photo with you and loved ones, remove the video, write down the interview, and people will reach out for you, will want to communicate and cooperate. Declare yourself everywhere, where possible: "I am so doing something, and I get it well".
You do not have to be afraid of our popularity, on the contrary, you must want to get it in any way. Then become the leader of opinions and the main specialist on certain issues. Yes, you can write a lot and interesting on some topic, be competent in a certain area, have a blog with a beautiful design, but if you cannot present yourself correctly, then nothing is possible from this will not be released.
The blog must be a link between you and other people on the Internet. This is your business card, but the business card should be a personality, and not a set of letters.
Design and Usability
Do not forget that the blog you created first for readers, and only then for yourself. Mentioned Famous term "SDL" – a site for people. Everything that is on your site is pressed, read, commented – for users on the other side of the screen. Make sure that most readers who will come to your blog like you visiting you, navigate and comment on posts.
Come up with your logo, slogan, color palette, stand out among thousands and thousands of other sites. If you have a standard template, make it unique: add your chips, change colors and shapes, diverse it with plugins. And it is best to purchase a paid template or order design from freelancer.
Improve your blog. Remier design until you approach the ideal. Look at the websites of top bloggers, please note that they have everything stylish and there is nothing superfluous.
Remove a thousand advertising blocks and teasers, remember how the abundance of advertising themselves is annoying. After a while, if you blog seriously, you will learn to post advertising correctly, without imposing it to the user.

Each blogger thinks: if he created a blog, wrote a pack of articles, it optimized everything, now there is a bunch of readers and starts all this to bravely discuss and share posts in socialki. No, this will not be. You need to first go to the sites of other bloggers, preferably on the most discussed sites, and declare yourself. To discuss on hot topics and sometimes express your position that does not coincide with the position of others.
Communicate, acquire new acquaintances, social connections. Declare themselves in the World Wide Web.
Sign up on social networks, preferably in all, and communicate there too. Do not leave short comments, it will not give you no advantages. Communicate where you wonder that you will find like-minded people who will attract your personality.
Here are some recommendations for commenting on other blogs:
1. The main rule
Do not want to comment – no need if not your article or not your blog topics. Do not spend your time and strain for the sake of traffic (in this way you will not get anything). Should not comment only from politeness. Better spend this time to your blog.
2. Friendly communication
If you have friendly relationships with other bloggers, communicate with them in their thematic articles – so you create a live blog together, helping each other.
3. Big comments
If you have deep knowledge on the topic or opinion about the article, then express it in an expansion comments to attract the attention of other bloggers, show yourself, and most importantly – to draw attention to the author. But it is not necessary to leave great comments, because over time it bothers, they stop reading.
If you want to attract the attention of another commentator – thought it, a little apologize, but not just in the spirit "I do not agree", but very fine. Skill requires skill, but it works trouble-free. If you have a good comment, another commentator will be interested in you, will go to visit you and, most likely, will be your regular reader.
Do not join the active discussion of the topic – this is a waste of time and emotion. You can leave hundreds of comments, and the solution to the problem will not appear. It is better to spend this time on the development of your own blog.
6. Skill to stop and think
Before you leave a comment, think if you do not look like a fool, trying to put myself an expert. Believe me, there are people smarter than you.
If you ask in the comments: "Come to visit me" Or "I wrote so much, and when you come to me?"- Everything, you are out of the game, and it is no longer corrected. Better Wait for the moment when there is something to share: some useful article or advice.
eight. Answers to comments in your blog
Try to answer all. Sometimes the troll, but never be angry or stubbornly do not argue. No need to impose all of your opinion and try to convince any price. Bancake aggressors or those who just begins to carry nonsense, calmly and without a branch of conscience. Always welcome your readers, especially new.
Generation of new ideas
Always need to write something new to surprise your readers. For example, tell an interesting case from life, raise some kind of topical topic or start your own marathon on learning Macrame. If you all the time will write, as found the 101st way to earn money on the Internet or installed the 35th plugin, you will not read for a long time: now it is irrelevant. Better write how you got stuck or made a mistake in some beginning – it will give much more return.
Add something fresh into your posts: humor, polls, lists, finally, just music. Read more, chat, Meet, Experiment – this is the key to new excellent ideas.
And if you still decided to write about SEO, plugins and promotion on the Internet, then get ready for a long, boring, grueling path.
New ideas do not come – you can break away from the computer and walk in the fresh air or play sports. Helps.
Well, the last thing all the famous bloggers say: write, write and write again! Write regularly, write a lot, write from the soul. Yes, at first it may not be possible, but then you will find your style, grip, we will master the search and buy other blogger skills.
Try to benefit people, solve their problems, answer questions, make instructions on how to use anything, analyze any problem, put questionable thoughts.
How much is already written about earnings on the Internet, plugins, recipes, programs, sports, and everything is dry tongue, without a raisin, sharpened under the keywords – boredom mortal. If you want to write, then all this is getting tired, since your content will not bring any benefit for a person.
Write for people, not for "Yandex" and Google.
Often, people make a mistake – write articles only one type. It is not right. Try to alternate: Experiments, sharpened posts, blog news, provocative articles, information reports.
Think of how to attract a new audience and not to be confused at the same time, how to revive them and stir, how to ignite interest when he starts to fade. Remember that the reading audience – the lady of Capricular: Do not like – will go to another tab to another blogger.
Criticism and self-criticism
Ask friends or acquaintances of bloggers to evaluate your creation. And if readers criticize you – Rejoice: This is a free audit of your site. Listen and check maybe they are right.
- Blog’s ideology. Is everything coincides with the initial statements?

- Technical part: Site download, Pressing buttons, response in comments.
- His audience. Is it true to which you are oriented when creating a blog?
- Feedback. Is it? If so, what?
And last advice. Do not chase in incomprehensible indicators: TIC, PR, attendance. Better create a blog useful for people.
