Tips for Writing the Blog

Seems Now a days Everybody is writing something and everybody is clicking something.

I mean everybody start their own blog and feel himself/herself a photographer. I see many people mushroomed out in these two areas.

I read an article on how to write a blog properly in today's newspaper. I felt this is the info which anyone can get only, more than that though.

So why it was in newspaper, to just fill the empty space, because they couldn't find any specific topic to publish. What happened to Journalism then.

Tips for Writing the Blog

• Make your opinion known People like blogs, they like blogs because they are written by people and not corporations. People want to know what people think, crazy as it sounds they want to know what you think. Tell them exactly what you think using the least amount of words possible.

• Link like crazy Support your post with links to other web pages that are contextual to your post.

• Write Less Give the maximum amount of information with the least amount of words. Time is finite and people are infinitely busy. Blast your knowledge into the reader at the speed of sound.

• 250 is enough A long post is easier to forget and harder to get into. A short post is the opposite.

• Make Headlines snappy Contain your whole argument in your headline. Check out National newspapers to see how they do it.

• Include bullet point lists It structures the info in an easily digestible format.

I guess blogging is to express, why do we need a marketting department in the blogging. Do we need to capitalise in everything.....

Blogging is to express but Google inserted Business in it, and to common people like me.. it does interest how to make money while blogging. We don't think it is either way around like selling your feelings and sometimes emotions.

In current "Connected World" everybody is connected and they share too much.

Guess people are making money out of this too
