Content is key in Blogosphere. If you’ve got great content – it makes for some pretty awesome reading and will also result in some heavy duty comments on your blog. How do you know if your content is good, bad, mediocre or just fabulous ? The thing is – you never really know but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t blog from your heart. If you blog about something that inspires you, stirs you, drives you – it will come across in your writing and that in turn will make your readers think about it.
The internet is your oyster and the Gods of Google are around to help you find all the content that you need for your blog. You just have to take some time and find the topics that will interest you, your readers and find a connect there. This will only happen once you just blog, blog & blog some more (oh and maybe you can even create a survey and get feedback on what type of content your readers like based on the results)
When I first started blogging, I realized that I appreciated anyone who would take the time to leave a comment for me on my blog; and I’m pretty sure other bloggers would to.
How else do you think a blogger will know that ‘you’ read their blog and found it interesting enough to leave your digital footprint behind ? Comments are a great way of interacting with not only the blog author but with other readers of the blog; and its a sure fire way of getting other bloggers to at least drop by your blog once if they find your comments interesting. Don’t be shy about it and just say your two bits – its not that hard. I remember it took me a while to find my blogger voice but once I did (or at least thought I did) – there was no stopping me.
I’d always heard of blog challenges but up until last August I had never participated in one (maybe ‘cos I was unsure of what to expect – all the other people in challenges seemed to be such pros!) and after my first experience I would strongly recommend it to all bloggers – newbies & veterans alike !
Here are 3 challenges that would help you generate some great content and get a fair number of comments as well:
What are your thoughts ? How do you generate content for your blog ? Do you prefer to comments to subscribers on your blog ? Do you leave comments on other blogs or are you a lurker (someone who visits but doesn’t comment) Have you participated in any blog challenges before ? Which ones ? What do you think of the A to Z challenge so far ?
