Want to start a blog? It’s pretty evident, just by looking around on the web, that it is now common to dream about being a blogger and aspire to be known for their passions and craft on the Internet.

By simply logging in on any social media, you are bound to come across various popular influencers or bloggers who seem to have a lot of engagement, due to their quality posts, and often they have blogs where they can showcase their content in detail and draw in their viewers even more.

Being a blogger is also a viable job where you can exhibit interesting topics while also earning profit, as a sole content creator or for businesses. The sky’s the limit when it comes to making compelling content in blogs as well–from the latest dessert recipes or being up to date with celebrity news–so you can never run out of things to put into your site.

With plenty of bloggers around as well as streams of content, one may find it intimidating to delve into the world of blogging. After all, it’s a popular profession that offers a lot of value especially if you want to drive traffic to your site. It’s a good thing that there are a lot of tried and true ways to elevate the way you blog, especially as a beginner and you’re still taking those first steps.

In 2021, being a blogger is still a challenging yet fruitful agenda with returns on investment, now that people are choosing to consume media and be connected to others in digital mediums, more than ever before. Essentially, blogging is about what you have to offer as a content creator, and doing it in a way that makes viewers feel that they can get value off of what your blogs are all about. Let’s take a look at some top tips to amp up your blog.

  1. Choose your platform

Before blogging is finding the perfect place to do so. Fortunately, there are hundreds of popular websites to choose from. Some of the notable ones are WordPress, as well as Blogger. Your preference should ultimately rely on what would suit your needs best whenever you’re creating content. You should keep in mind, especially when you’re just new to the whole thing and if you are on a budget, that some are not free and it can be a learning curve, so it pays to take your time whenever you are choosing which website to place your content. After that, choose a domain name that is memorable, since it is one of the things your blog would be known for.

  1. Set your goals

Planning will make all the difference when it comes to starting a blog. Figure out what your goals are in creating it–is it for personal use, or are you intending to promote a product or business? Do you want to stick to niche topics, or do you want to have a wide variety of things you’d like to talk about? The answer to these questions will inevitably mold the branding of your blog. By brainstorming until you have a concise and clear content strategy, you can make your content consistent and something that viewers can expect and look forward to.

  1. Pick the right theme

Aside from content, your viewers will also be affected by the way you showcase your blog. Hence, picking the proper design and motif for your website as well as color scheme is going to impact the experience of your readers. Make sure that the designs you pick are at least not hurtful to the eyes, and allows your readers to stay on your blog without being distracted by trivial bothersome design choices.

When it comes to viewing your actual blogs, it’s best to keep in mind that readable fonts can easily outshine flashy ones. Most blogs make use of headers and formatting as well, just to make their blogs easier to consume and make it more pleasing to the eyes. 

Another vital thing is having the perfect logo that will perfectly epitomize the vibe that you’re going for with your blog.

Also, it’s important not to forget that people also commonly read on their mobile devices, so make sure to make your site as mobile friendly as possible as well.

  1. Quality check your content

It’s important to allot most of your time, of course, to the actual content of your blog. There are many ways to check if your blog posts are up to par with the expectations of your audience. Also, by examining blogs that inspire you–by determining what makes such blogs successful, you’ll learn to see how you can apply such qualities to your own work–perhaps they offer educational content, or they’re particularly funny.

Proper grammar and consistency of language plays a large part. This is why it pays to make sure that you have run through your blog more than once, and have edited out spelling mistakes. Fact checking is also vital especially when you’re offering information to your readers.

Another important aspect of content is learning what appeals to your demographic. By doing so, you can learn a lot such as what titles and format usually attract audiences, or what drives them to click and stay on their blogs. It is always best to keep in mind what aim each blog serves, and what important info it would leave upon your audiences. This is why it’s good to reflect on your content before mindlessly hitting ‘publish’.

  1. Be consistent

Like in most things, success doesn’t happen overnight. It takes work to successfully run a website, especially when you aim to write content that will prove to be useful to your audience. When you are eager to post regularly, you are more likely to be discovered by new readers, and old ones can get to know you even better. Such connections will be important in making people care about what you blog. Set up that content calendar, and be disciplined enough to follow your deadlines. With passion and persistence, you can reach new heights when it comes to being an impactful content creator.
