The joys of blogging can also be some of the biggest pains. My first month of writing posts I found myself feverishly writing down everything I could put on the web. By month three, I was slowing down. But month six, I was wondering why I was not getting traffic and if maybe it was me. (Hint: it was)
Many bloggers have a passion that pursued them to blog. Even us at ChurchMag are under the banner of Christian nerds and geeks. But passion alone will not make a blog a success. This is not another stupid SEO gimmick. No, we want you to blog with conviction to create great content. So take a lesson from below and start crafting something amazing.
Here are my favorite three parts from the infographic below:
- The ideal title length for a blog post is 8 words and 70 characters. Can you sum up the whole post and make it inviting for a person in that few of words?
- I love the three ways they suggest to make them see what you see: tell a story, use descriptions, use case studies. Notice: no bulletpoints or 3 paragraph SEO tricks?
- Bloggers seem to understand how to get other people’s attention, but fail at the next part: keeping it. Have them engage with your content and coming back for more.
