Creating A Blog That Has Personality

Creating A Blog That Has Personality

by: TJ Philpott

When creating a blog you generally want to give it some personality. Most popular blogs display a certain style or attitude in the way they deliver their updates which makes them more distinctive within their own niche. Another advantage is that in most cases the personality any blogging platform assumes is generally that of the blog writer! This makes the writing process much more natural and therefore easier for the person updating the site.

Here are 3 simple ways you can add ‘personality’ to any blogging platform to make it more distinctive enabling it and you to stand out more within your niche.

Share Opinions

When appropriate do not be afraid to share your opinion on a subject or particular issue if you have one. Although not everyone may feel the same way as you most people are usually interested in what others may think. In fact most popular blogs will offer opinions simply for the sake of provoking a response from their readers in order to initiate some type of discussion. Interactivity like this helps encourage visitor involvement and create a stronger sense of community!

Be Passionate

As a blog writer allow your ‘feelings’ to show in your writing if you are passionate about a subject or issue. This tends to draw people further into the content you have posted and makes for much more interesting reading! This passion also helps you be more persuasive or influential in terms of swaying the opinions or perspective of others pertaining to the subject you are blogging about. Once again by getting people more involved in what is being posted on your blogging platform you are increasing their interest along with your own ‘uniqueness’ as well! Remember others do not have to agree with what you are saying for them to find your perspective interesting or thought provoking!

Maintain Your Convictions

Do not ‘cave’ in to the opinions or feelings of others if you do not share them. Maintain your own convictions since if they are strong enough there must be a reason why! Explaining your reasons, if they are compelling enough, will make for interesting reading and likely will also provoke more thought and stimulate further interaction.

Creating a blog that ‘displays’ a certain personality helps to make it more distinctive allowing for it to better stand out from the crowd. In most cases the blogging platform normally ‘mimics’ the personality of the blog writer which helps make composing new updates more natural and thereby easier for them. The 3 simple suggestions above serve to help you introduce personality to your own platform. As you can see it is not a complicated formula to follow and done correctly will succeed in helping to make your blogging platform more noticeable. In this way it is likely you will attract more visitors and hopefully evolve into one of the most popular blogs in your niche!

Writing and Publishing My Book: The Concept Of The Perfect Author

The Concept Of The Perfect Author

They are people that know everything about everything; When I was there, when I did that, when I met her; I am sure you get the idea.Enough about the I-experts and more about sharing your knowledge, your products, your services and even your experiences. How are you going to do all of that? Easy: submit articles. One has the opportunity to submit articles about any subject in the world and beyond. One can submit articles on how to do almost anything, how to fish, how to swim in a strong rip tide off the Australian coast. The limitation of subjects is no existent, the quality of the content must however be kept in check, if you want anyone to take you seriously as well as to publish the work you have done.

Everyone is an expert in some or other field, and when the submit articles they are effectively sharing their knowledge with the world via the internet and possibly making someone elses life a little easier by providing real solid advice and tips that are applicable to the real world. So think if you submit articles to an online directory and you have positively impacted upon someone somewhere in the world, does this not positively contribute to your own self? I believe it does, it is a process of sharing and giving with an open disposition, as you are writing the article from a point of view that you are not expecting to get paid for it, yet you are doing it out of passion for what you are writing about, and you have the opportunity of the spin off of affecting someone in a positive way. This is enough motivation for anyone to write and submit articles.

When you submit articles relating to sales and marketing of products and services you have the ability of constructing them correctly, without creating a marketing or advertising brochure, you will have the opportunity of driving so much more traffic to the desired website and thereby stand to gain tremendously from rankings and potential sales. When you submit articles related to your business the opportunity of elevating your perceived skill and knowledge level is realized, as the content you write with reference to your products and services will be reflect by your articles insight, advice and professionalism.

Take the initiative to submit articles, even if it is about an experience or personal knowledge you have gained over the years, you may find a publisher wants to use the article and that may well be the start of a writing career or boost your writing hobby. Go ahead find a directory and submit articles.

While I may now have the majority of the answers to successfully writing and self-publishing, it hasn’t always been this way…

For years I was like you probably are right now… with one or more books inside you, longing to come out… but they never did…

I know what it feels like to tell friends “I’m going to finish my book this year and finally get it published,” only to have that statement haunt you months, years later when the book is still un-finished and un-published…

…but one day I reached a point where I said “enough” and I made a commitment to write, to be published and to stop letting excuses get in the way of achieving my dreams!

That day was made waaaaaay back in 1990 and since then I’ve achieved more than I ever dreamed…
