Lets get started with the best blogging tips I have learnt and use everyday-

  1. Planning – Stephen covey very rightly said “Start with an end in mind”. When you enter a blogging challenge you must have a plan when you will post and what on a calendar. Insights from our Instagram, WordPress, Twitter profiles can guide us here.
  2. Find the right keywords – Select right keywords for an informative and well researched content. For Google and other search engines the right keywords are necessary to list your blog in the search results.
  3. Writing for your audience – A blog will be read by all types of audience. Write with the audience in mind. A skimmer can read the headings and highlighted texts. A person with interest can read though paragraphs. Making it personal adds credibility and helps audience to relate with us.
