BLOGGING TIPS

Blogging is really an art....It is not just writing your thoughts or any information just like that...you need to write in a presentable format to have readers stick on to your blog.....

ok...ok....stop frowning at me...i can hear you say,"what the fuck you know about blogging....you are an amateur too??"

yes,thats true,and thats why i made an honest attempt to read good blogs , articles on blogging and some tips on good blogging....i got some really good tips...i thought i could share it with you....thats the motive of this post....

let me give you a jist:

1) PRECISE AND SELF EXPLANATORY HEADING:

Your heading is like your face...it reflects your feelings from inside....your anger,happiness,surprises,sadness and every other myriad of your emotions can just be picked from your face...that is how your heading is-it reflects your entire post...
whatever you are going to write in the next few hundred words will become less important for your reader if the heading to your blog isn't precise and clear....

"ALWAYS GIVE A PRECISE AND SELF EXPLANATORY HEADING TO YOUR BLOG...AND WRITE THEM IN CAPITAL LETTERS"


2)KEEP IT SHORT:

None of your readers are interested in your essay of emotions and writeups....so keep your post as short but as precise as possible...FINISH OF YOUR POST IN 250 WORDS.......that would be suffice..

3)PROVIDE VALUABLE LINKS:

Always provide valuable and relevant links to your posts....also increase interlinking in your blogs...this would help in increasing viewerships...

4)FOLLOW PYRAMID STRUCTURE:

A lways follow pyramid structure for your posts......(ie)start your post with the core idea of your blog and build your views and informations around this idea..
Always the very first sentense of your blog is what people read to know wheter to continue or not....so,keep the first sentence of your post precise and as an jist of the thoughts that follow.

5)USE SIMPLE LANGUAGE:

Use simple english language rather than local sms lingo or your mothertounge language or a sophisticated and complicated english....

I guess this post was usefull and worhty...even iam trying to blog keeping these as the base...

thanks for reading.....

no machan...ur google account is suffice to start a blog....jus follow the links in any blog page that says "create your own blog" and you will end up with a blog page for yourself...

and no,you cant include polls in blogs i guess...

@Arvind:

You need to go here http://www.blogger.com/ for a blogger account. As blogger (or) blogspot is owned by google, you can sue your google account to start a blog like vijay said.

The whole process of setting up a blog will hardly take 5 mins. So you really need to try it.

And about the polls, you sure can have polls on your blog sidebar da.

@Vijay: Check the 'Add Page Element' Option in the Layout section for adding polls.
