Making your blog you – Five Tips You Need To Know.
One of the best ways to make your blog you is to add some of your personality into your writing.
I’m sure like me you’ve come across blog posts that are boring and dry.
As a writer you want to strive to inform your audience and keep them entertained.
How do you do that?
You add your personality so that your blog stands out from the rest.
Let’s look at some easy ways to have your articles bursting with so much personality readers will feel like they’re talking to you personally.
Stories are happening all the time to every one of us. The key is you need to find a great relevant story to add to your content.
We all have unique experiences. Take those experiences and form a topic. Share that topic with your readers in a way that only you can.
Don’t Be Afraid
You may feel that you want to write and have it appeal to everyone. The truth is that’s not always possible.
Think of reporters. What do they do? They share the facts but they also voice their opinion on the topic they are writing about.
Don’t be afraid to voice your opinion. My mother always said you can please some of the people some of the time but you can’t please all the of the people all of the time. I think that you can and should voice your opinion but that doesn’t mean it has to be in a harsh way.
Write What You Love
When writing if you choose a topic you know and love your passion will shine through.
When you have a strong interest in a topic you are more vested in it. That high level of energy that you have for that topic will excite and motivate others.
Have a Conversation
A big mistake that many make is instead of talking to your audience you talk AT them. If you desire to relate to them then you need to talk TO them.
Think of it as if you were writing a letter. You want your tone to be warm, friendly and personable.
It’s going to take you time to develop your writing personality. This doesn’t happen over night. Look at what you’ve written and see if it sounds like you.
Hopefully with these tips you can start creating a blog that is totally you and one others will be drawn to.
