When it comes to blogging, there are multiple different factors that a blogger must consider when writing each post. Writing a blog is similar to writing a diary, however this diary is public. Blogging is a wonderful way for a person to be able to express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Not only does blogging always have to be about expressing personal experiences, it is also a good way to state factual information in a more relaxed manner. I use my blog to express my thoughts about my experiences abroad, and share photos of the amazing places I get the opportunity to visit.
There are many different tools that are beneficial for a blogger regardless of what they are writing about. It is important to know the different ways to platform and organize your blog when setting it up. For example, your display page is a crucial factor because this is the first thing people see when they click on your blog. It is more likely that people will exit out of your blog sooner if they just see tons of writing right away. This is why it is important to use pictures when blogging because it keeps the viewers entertained. Another thing a person needs to consider when creating a blog is the use of categories and tags. Without using categories and tags, your blog becomes harder to find. Categories and tags will differ depending on what ones blog post is about. A category is in a sense a more broad version of a tag. For example, a category could be “travel” and your tag could be “Barcelona”. Another important thing for a blogger to know is their search engine optimization and their search engine marketing.
Blogging can be very beneficial for many people in numerous different ways. For some, blogging may just be used as a way to express themselves. However, blogging for others may be used for professional purposes. For instance, some people get paid to blog for companies. Also, some people are even paid to blog about their own personal lives. I happen to know of a few different people who’s jobs are to blog about their daily life. Their blogs normally consist of talking about their interests, fashion, food, and weekend adventures. They keep their blogs up to date and post often in order to keep their viewers around. Blogging is a great way to establish business connections.
