1. Make the Blog RelatableYour SEO Plan is Kim Kardashian (Low Quality and all Over the Place) I began experimenting with mixing digital marketing tips with popular culture. This was a far step from earlier posts where I was basically just giving a how-to’s that were boring and no one cared about. Choosing a relatable topic gives non-technical people insight into the technical world and makes dry topics more palatable.
2. Never Be BoringTo become a better blog writer, I performed research and read many (MANY) different blogs. Some writers were interesting, informative, and opinionated like a good Adam Corrolla podcast. While others lacked any passion at all for the topic. What I did notice is that good or bad, if the author took a view and wrote with passion I would finish the article. Passion creates interest and it shows in the way the blog reads.
3. Have a Great TeamThere is no way I could do this without the help of my team. Sometimes it felt like I was writing in a vacuum, so having a team helped to check myself. I have a great editor who tells me when I make no sense, when no one will get my references (I stand by MC Skat Kat!), and when my spelling is atrocious. Additionally, I have fantastic support from upper management, who do not restrict me on topics I choose to write about while pursuing this interest. Overall, if you want to learn more about blogging - just do it! Some posts will be great and some won’t, but with each post you will know more about what it takes to makes a good blog post ... and knowing is half the battle.
