Twitter Find: ABC’s of Blogging


blogging

As an avid Twitter follower, (@kristinandrews) I often come across great tweets by others. I follow a lot of designers so that I can build a network of design professionals like me. It’s a great resource for inspiration and to keep up on the latest in the web design industry.

Aussie creative guru Jacob Cass wrote a great blog post on “giving your blog the edge.” He provides 7 helpful hints on how to up your blog’s presence on the web. I like to call this the ABC’s of blogging. Here’s a condensed version of “7 Secrets You MUST Know to Give Your Blog The Edge”:

  1. Formatting Text. Kind of like what I’m doing with breaking up the paragraphs and listing items in number format for readability.
  2. Recap in first 2 sentences. Your reader wants to know what the post is about right away.
  3. Use Images. Pictures speak a thousand words. People, including myself, like visualizing what the reader is saying.
  4. Devote time. I’m guilty of not following this one like I should. Craft your blog post with resources for the reader.
  5. Interactivity. Present the reader with events, competitions, and other things he or she can partake in.
  6. Network. Get connected with others like you and have a link to one another.
  7. Commenting. Respond to people who have taken the time to spill their thoughts.
