7 Questions to Ask Before Blogging!

Well Are you a new blogger? Well if you are and if you’re not! Do you ever Wonder these Questions to Ask before blogging? Or Well lets start new,

So,

How many blogs do you read that blow on how blogging is?

This is a great way to raise your profile.

This is a great way to increase traffic to your site.

This is a great way to add original and interesting content for Google.

If this is so flipping great, how come you did not benefit from any of these amazing benefits?

If you are not satisfied by the number of shares, likes and comments on posts at your blog, it probably has more to do with your writing style than visiting audience. Since you’re writing for the audience hence your post should be able to deliver the idea to the readers that you want them to understand or if it is product related site then it should be clear about what product you are trying to sell and how it can benefit them. Once the reader is able to understand the core of your post then you can be assured that you have gained a loyal customer which is likely to publicise your blog among his social network or could be vice-versa if your writing fails to impress the reader. So before you start writing, ask yourself these questions.

DID YOU ASK BEFORE BLOGGING !

  1. Do you target your audience?

As a blogger, you have a niche. As an expert in your field, you are well placed to offer your readers lots of great tips and advice. Take a look at some of your recent posts. Have youstuck to your niche? Do you give response to reader’s comments, questions and feedback? Make sure that everything you write is relevant. If you start to write about a recent stay on your food blog that will not attract many readers. Write about a local specialty and revenue related to your blog and you’ll be on a winner. Well this was just a bit off topic.

For example if I own an automobile blog say it autoswan.com, so it will be related to automotive, I have posted many posts in the same niche but then suddenly I thought to post of blogger or blogging niche topics, readers will get confused they will try to figure it out as a result my targeted audience is likely to leave. So First Target you niche and audience based on that niche in a systematic manner.

  1. How much your credibility worth’s?

Statistics are a great way to add weight to your arguments, but question is did you bother to check it? There is nothing worse than generously scattered work in inaccurate data. It’s the best way to damage your reputation.

Check and check against each figure, quotes before you hit publish. That would make sure that your work is full-fledged with lots of data making the readers reliable to stay at you blog.

Find out things you should do before hitting publish.

  1. Be Unique, write Original!

OK, it is almost impossible to have a single thought, but be sure to do your own. If you are inspired by another article about your views on the subject and refer to the original work.

Of course, you’ll only publish your own unique content (ie your own thoughts), but it is also important to write in your own style. Even if you admire a great blogger does not try to emulate their style.

Your audience wants to get to you and the only way they can find out, thanks to your writing. Let your personality shine through and make your work instantly recognizable.

  1. Is content valuable to reader?

Each blog post you write should add value to your readers. It should help them in some way, whether it is to solve a problem they have, offering advice or giving them a useful tip.

Read your message . Are you being helpful, or are you just using the platform to suit your own purposes?

  1. Is language easy to understand?

It is one most important questions to ask before blogging to yourself. One of the mostimportant things to check before publishing (other than spelling and grammar) is that you used a simple language. Despite what you may believe, using a complex language, jargon and incomprehensible words will not make you look smart instead it would be a barrier for reader to understand the idea or information you want to deliver. Readers want simple and easy to understand information, they can make quickly and learn.

  1. How About Sharing?

  1. What is your goal?

Always ask this question. All I have said so far focuses on your drive, but what about your goals? Remember why you write – is it for traffic, links, reputation, newsletter sign ups or how about writing a seo post? Anyway, make sure you add a call to action to encourage the participation of your readers, even if it’s just to ask for a comment. If you do not ask, you will not get.

The next time you sit down to write a blog post remember these tips and make sure that you and your audience out on the winning side.
