Lydia’s Guide To Blogging

Secrets of a great blog

The web is a vast sea of information, so how can a blog be successful? These next five points are what I consider secrets of a great blog.

A successful blog has a topic with passionate followers.

Underground Christian rock music is the topic of my blog, Less than the Least, and the followers of this music are willing to travel across the country to music festivals such as Cornerstone Festival and Facedown Fest.

A blogger realizes his or her blog isn’t just for him to spout his opinions.

A good blog is a place for a community to come together to learn, discuss and share. A blogger leads a tribe, and must consider the needs, wants and interests of the tribe.

A great blog should be entertaining.

Incorporate videos, photographs, links, and more into your posts. Sauced posts great images that readers can browse.

A great blog provides practical information.

Practical information would be anything useful for readers. Sauced also posts recipes.

Look at your blog as a first time visitor.

When writing posts and designing layout, keep in mind that first time visitors will stumble upon your blog. At first glance, your blog should tell readers what exactly it is about. Keep your blog looking fresh and inviting.
