Blogging is about writing. If you don’t like to write, you probably won’t enjoy blogging. But if you’ve never tried writing, you may have an as yet undiscovered talent that you would enjoy. So try writing a few practice blog posts. Write about something interesting to you. If you enjoy writing, then blogging may be for you! Not only you’ll get to share topics you like, but you’ll also get to improve your writing skills.

Ensure that you are posting very often in the blogs that you operate. At the minimum, you should aim to post one time on each blog every single day during the weekdays. Of course, posting more is always welcome. This shows your visitors that you are a very active blogger, which will make them more prone to keep visiting your blogs.

Avoid talking to yourself in your blog post. Don’t treat it like a diary (unless that’s how you aimed your blog), instead only tell stories your readers will be interested in. You should also beware of using first person writing unless you are writing about a relevant topic that will interest your viewers and keep them coming back for more.

If you want to be a good writer, it is important that you are a good reader. Take the time to actually read what you write about, and enjoy it.

When you are attempting to select a topic that will be the basis of your blog you should make sure that you are interested in your topic. You can’t expect to maintain a blog whose topic doesn’t interest you in anyway. Selecting a topic that you love increases the chance that you’ll stick with it continually updating your blog which will generate new readers.
