No need to fear writing blog posts! They are as easy as sending off a quick email to a friend. Your blog is an extension of yourself and your thoughts. You know things that others would like to know – and this is the place to share those items.
If you are a small business, posting blogs online builds trust and great customer relationships with the people you provide services to.
If you are an author, people get to read and relate to you in real time when they subscribe to your writings. Posting blogs is a fantastic way to build anticipation and excitement for the book that is about to roll off the press (and allows you an opportunity for pre-pub sales) or for that book you have in mind that you’d like to write. Fans love being “in-the-know” and will share with others in regards to your next book as well as cheer you on in your journey.
You can make your posts as short as you like or as long as you like. However, a word to the wise … blog posts are best used as sound bites – and your longer posts will be received better if you post them in a PAGE and list them as an article.
You can add a video to your blog, images and mention other blogs for variety. Pasting a quote into your blog with the quote tool will add visual variety when you don’t have an image or video to share.
The more you post on your blog, the faster your site will be found by search engines and seen as a viable resource for information in your area of expertise.
Go ahead – dive in and start writing!
