3 Tips for Successful Blog Writing
|Mike Mulligan with wife, Helen.|
Here are three tips to help you on your blog writing journey. Stick to this plan daily and you will fill your blog archives with thousands of messages for readers all over the world.
- Be consistent. Pick a set time each day for blog writing. I wake up at 5:00AM every morning and write until 8:08AM when my blog story is released. I'm wide awake and there are no distractions. By publishing at 8:08AM, Pacific time, readers can tune in just as they do for their favorite TV show. This consistency builds readership. Find a time that works for you to write and stick to it.
- Be committed. It helps to ask yourself why blogging is important to you. Keep that vision in your head to remind yourself why you write everyday. If your vision is to change the world through your daily messages, it won't materialize unless you keep your focus.
- Be concerned. When you care about the readers and what their interests are, your concern will show up between the lines of your stories. Empathy builds connections. Your writing should be a two-way street. Interact with readers who comment on your blog. Keep in touch. Build bridges. Say thank you when a reader takes the time to send you a message.
