7. Emotional Appeal
Human beings are emotional creatures. Everything that a person does is connected to an emotional need. Blog readers look for amusement, entertainment, knowledge, and inspiration. Make your blog interesting, a little humorous, and creative, and emotionally appealing to all audiences.
A cool, trendy blog that allows readers to participate in discussions, opinion polls, and forums usually gets a lot of traffic. Create a buzz and do something to catch your readers’ interest. Introduce new topics, talk about something deliciously controversial, put up contests and allow people to join in. Offer gifts to winners; your blog will attract a lot of attention.
8. Frequent Updates
Don’t let your blog go to sleep. Not only will you lose your reader base, but you’ll build a negative reputation. Update your blog at least 3 times a week, if not daily. Don’t overdo it; don’t update your blog 20 times a day – you’ll look desperate and lose your subscribers.
9. Helpful Attitude
Readers look for bloggers who are helpful. Know that your reader is your blog’s backbone. If a reader wants to discuss a problem, be open to listening to it. If another blogger wants to start a blog in the same niche, help them achieve success.
10. Dynamism And Passion
Demonstrate a passion for your chosen niche. Allow your posts, your comments, and your entire attitude to breathe your passion. Let your readers know that you care about what you write. When you’re passionate about your blog, your dynamism will flow. People will see that you’re always ready to learn new things and flow with the change.
Get personal with your readers. Let your readers know that there’s a living, breathing, thinking, and caring person behind your blog. Allow your personality, your thoughts, likes, dislikes, and opinions to filter into your blog, with respect. Readers know that nobody is perfect and this makes it easier for them to connect with imperfect but sincere personalities.
