Are you looking for some great tips on blogging?
Hello everyone! Here at my house it has been a crazy couple of weeks. Seth has just finished his second semester of DPT (Doctorate of Physical Therapy) School. We get a little time off and then it’s back to summer semester.
When I started thinking about what I wanted to write about this week, I took a look back at the previous articles that I have written and realized that I have been writing once a week for R & R Web Design LLC for well over 6 months now.
While I have been writing as a ghost writer for longer, I have been posting blogging tips once a week. So, for this week’s article I want to share what I have learned about blogging about blogging.
- You can get away for blogging once a week.
When I first started, I thought for sure you had to write at least 3 times a week. What I’ve learned however is that when you provide great content and enough content once a week can produce a powerful blog for you.

- Make your articles easy-to-read.
I often catch myself skimming when I’m “reading”. Provide your readers when an article that is easy-to-read will promote them reading the entire article and not just the headline. If you’re unsure what I mean by easy-to-read, 7 Tips on Writing Easy to Read Blog Articles.
- Spend time on your headline.
Copyblogger provided us with a startling statistic,
On average, 8 out of 10 people will read headline copy, but only 2 out of 10 will read the rest.”
What is the point of having amazing content if you lose readers at the headline? Looking for tips on headlines? How to Write the Perfect Headline Every Time is the start to a series that can help you with that.
- Don’t be afraid to get a little personal.
This is something I just started dabbling in. I say confidently that blog readers crave personality from their blog writers. They want to know that the person they are taking advice from is a real person. A real person that is interested in them. In my article, Never, Ever Give Up On a Dream, I opened up to my readers about my husband and his journey to grad school. If you looking for an example on how to get personal with blogging- I invite you to read that article.
- Please, don’t over share.
My mom has this saying; she would tell me “Don’t hang your dirty laundry out to dry”. There is a difference in being personal and over sharing. Over sharing will push your readers away.
This has been a great 6+ months. I have learned SO much and I’m looking forward to another 6 months.
