Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge.
Today’s prompt: Write a poem that ends with the word “key”
What in your opinion is the key to being a successful blogger?
In my opinion, blogging is all about connecting with your reader.
If you have a niche, the reader/ follower would know that and they would read your latest post to get updated about it.
If you’re a writer of stories or poetry, interested people will be logging in to read them. Whatever you write, the people who feel a connection will be there to read your posts.
How to develop this connection?
There are many ways to connect to your reader;
• Write genuine content, something that is original and comes straight from you. Even a researched post should have that special touch that only you can give it.
• Get to know your readers/ followers. Read their comments, respond to them, and appreciate their interest and effort. Do visit their blogs and even if you don’t follow them, read a post and if you like, comment as well. Getting to know the person behind the blog is important as it develops a rapport with them.
•Content is the key! Never take it lightly. Put effort into creating your content and make sure it is free of mistakes, spelling errors, or grammatical ones.
• Remember that it will take time! Nothing will happen overnight, or even in a few months. So have realistic expectations and don’t get despondent if you don’t see instant results.
• Don’t compare your blog to any one else’s! Comparison just creates unreal expectations or disappointments.
These are a few points that have helped me in my blogging journey.
