I want to share to you some things I've learned about blogging. If you don't notice that I've changed or applied some writing skill techniques, well, I just have.
- "You" and "your" instead of "I" and "mine" - Your readers instinctively look for articles that mean to them. They will just ignore your posts when all you do is talk about yourself. Try speaking or writing in the second-person perspective. Instead of "I woke up this morning feeling anxious," say, "Have you experienced waking up in the morning, feeling anxious?" It's more interesting for them and they may even be compelled to make a comment.
- One is enough, two is too much. - Studies show that a person can't hold too much idea in his mind at one time. If you have more ideas to share, try to consider doing a series of post.
- It's in the packaging. Make your post readable and interesting by writing short paragraphs and one-line sentences. Plus people get easily hooked up with good visuals. So do add an image that tells something about your post.
- Rapport - What I love about blogging is that you can write in your natural voice. And not like a formal theme type. Think as if you're just talking to a friend beside you.
