Starring at a blank page can be a little intimidating – trust me – I know all about that. So, I’ve decided to post some tips that should help you when putting on your face to the world. I will update the list as I think of more.
Getting Started – First you need to think of a name. The name should be short, creative and expressive. The title must be less than 55 Characters, excess characters will be discarded.
Write so visitors will read – As a blog owner, you hope that others will take the time to read about your ordeal and hopefully avoid making the same mistakes you did. So, make it readable.
- Keep paragraphs short, long paragraphs are more difficult to read online, so be sure to break up the text often.
- Be sure to use sentence case. Reading text in all lower case letters or in all CAPS isn’t fun. Did you know that writing in all caps is considered shouting? No one likes to be yelled at.
- Use your spell checker to help avoid spelling mistakes.
- Lastly, be sure to proof read your posts. Are they clear and complete thoughts? Will a reader be able to understand the points you are trying to make?
Share – We were all taught to share in school and at home when we were young. Send a link to your blog to family and friends. Encourage them to post their comments. Sharing not only helps you but other bloggers and it will help keep our stories alive.
Read and Comment – Be sure to read other blogs and give your comments. Some of the stories you find will surprise you, make you angry and you just might learn something to help with your own case.
