Tips for Effective Blogging

Posted: March 31, 2013 in Weekly Blog Posts

By now, it has been well-documented how practical maintaining a blog is. It can offer one free exposure to potential employers and offer an outlet for social media “friends” to get to know the blogger. I believe one’s personality can really be portrayed through a blog. 

Here are a few tips to effective blogging, via Hudson Horizons:

1. Establish Authority: Don’t blog about things you don’t know. Unless it is an open opinion, and you make that clear, you’re making yourself vulnerable to sounding ignorant and uneducated. Nobody likes know-it-all-blogger posting about healthcare based off one Obama interview: 

2. Industry Interaction: Potential bosses will likely give you a closer look if they have read your blog and see you’ve had a previous though or two on what he/she may hire you for. Don’t be shy to post on other blogs and interact with other industry professionals. 

3. Increase Your Traffic: If I have a blog I want people to read, I am sure to share it on Facebook and Twitter. I have a larger presence there, so it makes sense. 

Overall, blogging is new and some people are hesitant to publish. However, with a few tips one can be well on their way to building an effective blog. 

I may be off my rocker, but I doubt it. 

Thanks for reading,

Levi.

    Great blog, I agree a person’s personality can be seen by reading their blog posts. It also gives you insights to what type of writer they are and what interests them. I could see why employers would consider hiring somebody based on their blogs.

    Really awesome blog it really goes into detail on how to blog correctly and how to use a blog I really like how you put a increase your traffic tip it make sense just put it on twitter or facebook so people can read it.

  3. Quick and to the point, which is a little different from your usual style, but good nonetheless. You gave a little different tips than others that I’ve read. I think that you gave it more from the business end of the blogging world rather than just the social aspect and the possibility of having a successful one. Also, I just noticed this, but I like your little tag line at the end of all your blog posts. Gives it a nice little tie in that makes the blog completely yours. Nice job, man.
