Don’t be too personal in your blog.
Yes it’s one of the most important tips if you really want to make your blog a success.
There are two reasons for this.
- It is a fundamental fact that generally people (you included) are interested only in themselves. Nobody wants to read about the personal lives of other except when personal life of a person has something uniqueness attached to it. (I’ll tell you about this uniqueness below, keep reading)
- On internet, people look for information not personal rambling of a newbie blogger. Just tell me would you be interested in knowing what I ate in lunch today and whether I liked that or not ? Of course why anybody wants to know about that. However, you’ll certainly want to know how I increases traffic to my website from 50 visitors a day to 800 visitors a day.
So while you blog, don’t be too personal.
The first one is a celebrity blog. If a movie star decides to start a blog, he can write just about anything on his blog and no matter what he writes he will be an instant success in blogging world. He can write about his toothpaste or underwear and thousands of people will be willing to pay for reading his stuff.
If you really want to make your blog popular with huge amount of daily traffic, make it focused and write about a particular niche in that blog. Show your expertise in that niche through your blog. Read, learn and research more and more about your niche. Try to be helpful, cooperative and above all – have patience. Slowly and slowly you will start getting traffic to your website from every corner of the world. Your readers will no longer be your family members and friends. They will be from all walks of life and from all countries of the world.
