NYE Resolution: 5 steps to starting a killer blog


So you’ve finally decided to start a blog? From fashion blogs to vacay blogs—we (and the rest of the web world) can’t get enough. Here’s how to make sure your blog is a hit:

 

1. What makes you interesting?

Are you starting a rock band? Are you a fab fashionista? Are you embarking on a new fitness plan? Starting your first year at a new school? Trying your hand at baking? Pick a topic that makes you a bit more unique and that will give you tons to write about.

 

2. Find your voice!

One of the great things about writing a blog is that you can put your English teacher’s stuffy rules on hold. Write in a voice that is relatable and fun—especially if most of your readers will be teens. And put down that thesaurus: your blog is probably not the best place to show off your mastery of the word sesquipedalian.

 

3. Keep up with appearances

You don’t have to be a computer science expert to come up with a cool web design anymore. Try out the custom themes on Wordpress, Blogspot and Tumblr. Then, make it fit you! If you’re creating a cooking blog, decorate your page with photos of your creations. If you have a travel blog, post your nifty photos of landmarks. 

 

4. Spread the word!

Let all your friends and family know about your blog. Have them tell their friends and family so you can start building your fan base. Allow your readers to comment on your posts and take their suggestions for new blog topics.

 

5. Keep ‘em coming back for more

Making your blog useful is a fantastic way to attract readers. Include instructions to that fab hairstyle you just tried out. Offer DIY ideas for making over your room. Include tips for dealings with boy drama.  Share you fave banana-blueberry muffin recipe. Happy blogging!
