Table of contents for 7 Catastrophic Blogging Errors To Avoid
Going On Forever And Forever
Have you ever read one of those massive two thousand word posts? Yeah, me neither. I run out of focus after about one thousand words. What I am saying here is this; keep your posts to the point. if you have a subject that requires a lot of words, post it in increments. Make a series out of it. That way you do not have to worry about what you are going to write for the rest of the week. Not only will you make your work easier you will also keep your readers from going to sleep while reading your blog.
Note to self; when your writing puts your readers to sleep, they become former readers of your site. This is not good…
It is wonderful to be a world class expert in your field. It is excellent that you are able to pontificate on the most minute and technical of subjects. I am reading your blog to learn, not to be overwhelmed! Help me by making your posts to the point and informative.
This is where most bloggers really miss the mark. Don’t publish a four thousand word article on your blog and expect visitors to read it. Fine, it’s great for SEO but don’t start off with that.
Your blog posts should be easy to read with a word count of three hundred to one thousand words. I frequently post under 300 words. Try reading Seth Godin’s blog. He is the king of informative while being incredibly brief.
Scan-ability is important
Break your writing into bullet points of use blog headlines so the reader can get an overall grasp on what you are presenting. Use images to break up the mass of words.
Write for your readers as well as yourself. You will be pleased with the results!
