Blogging here in New Zealand is a way of life for hundreds of people. There is so much stories to discover and share. Believe it or not, blogging is a viable way to make money here. That’s right, most businesses here have their own websites and most of the sites have their own blog page.
So, if you are thinking of starting your own blog soon, here are some important reminders you absolutely need to keep in mind.
Connect with Your Audience
It is important to connect with your audience. When we say connect, you need to identify with them and that might sound difficult, but it is not. Start by ditching third person pronouns and stick to first person and second person including I, me, our, you and yours.
You need to make sure that they receive the message as if you are talking to them face to face. One key to promoting your blog is to be relatable. You need to experience what other people experience.
Also, feel free to reply on comments in your blogs. Even if it is negative or positive. Let your audience know that you are also reading what they have to say. Several blog platforms provide great features for you to be more engaged.
Provide a Fresh Perspective
As a new kid on the block, it is important that you position yourself well in relation to the competition. It is very possible that the topic you want to write about is being tackled by a number of bloggers.
So, make sure to bring something new to the table. This is not rocket science, all you have to do is to really explore what you can share.
When we say fresh perspective, we encourage you to think further outside the box. Talk to people, ask them questions, you are sure to find something new that people hasn’t heard of yet.
Share your knowledge
It is also important to share what you know not only to your readers but to other bloggers as well. What you have to say and share surely has something value that would help someone out.
