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?
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!
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
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
4. Spread the word!
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
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!
