Have you just started your blogging journey? Well, get ready to take notes as I’ve got a few tips for you today to make your blog shine like the pros!
Start With 10 to 20 Posts: Before you publish your blog to the world, take a week or two to formulate posts. Try to aim for at least 10 to 20 articles for your readers to sift through. When they click on your blog, you want them to have more than enough articles to read to keep them coming back!
Create a Killer About Page: Your about page should answer a few of your traditional “who, what, why” questions. This gives your readers an understanding of who you are and what your mission will be with your blog!
Add Photos or Graphics: Nothing makes a blog stand out quite like adding photography or graphics. I wrote a detailed blog post on how to make your blogger photos stand out here.
Share Your Story: Ultimately, give your readers THE STORY. The reason behind your why or what got you started on the path to creating your web site.
Create a Menu: One of the most frustrating things that new bloggers fail to do is to create a menu. If your readers enjoy a blog post, they will more than likely want to see what else you have to offer. Make sure your menu is near the top and well laid out. It’s a simple, yet effective way to look like a pro blogger.
