4 potholes everyone faces on the road to professional blogging | memeburn

4 potholes everyone faces on the road to professional blogging | memeburn | Blogging & Social Media Tips | Scoop.it

...Towards the end of 2012, WordPress recorded more than 56.6-million blogs on its platform. That doesn’t include Blogger, Tumblr and a host of other blog platforms available.


So why do people blog? Some have an opinion they want to share, others simply enjoy writing and many are blogging because the digital marketing folk are telling them their business needs them to — search engine optimisation, being considered an expert in your field… there’s a variety of reasons they’ll tell you this a good idea.


Blogs beat traditional mainstream media in that there are no fast and hard rules governing them. Bloggers are free to express an honest and unedited opinion. Didn’t like the service you received at a restaurant? Absolutely horrified that the latest skin product you used left your neck in red patches? Well, blog about it.


Brands have realised that the readership of a blog is far more loyal than that of a magazine. Readers have a personal relationship with the blogger, they interact with them on other social media channels and therefore they trust them – far more than their copy of Car or Cosmo magazine. Their opinion matters and it only follows that their opinion sells.


The blogging bandwagon has taken off and it has hit a few potholes in the road....

Blogging is back in style, and results are there if marketers do it right. Just watch out for the potholes.

Few days ago, I found an article which was incredible, the article was mainly focusing about reducing bounce rate of blog or website. I decided to give it a shot and surprisingly my blogs bounce rate has dropped from 70% to 40% in few days. I think it is a huge boost to my blog.

2 Strategic and Compelling Reasons to Keep Blogging by Dan Blank

2 Strategic and Compelling Reasons to Keep Blogging by Dan Blank | Blogging & Social Media Tips | Scoop.it

While social media delivers a potentially more immediate reaction from your audience, blogging delivers long-term value and develops a body of work.... In the past few years, social media has eclipsed blogging in terms of where many writers spend their time when online. Many now choose to tweet, post to Facebook, or review on Goodreads instead of blogging on their own website. While social media delivers a potentially more immediate reaction from others, I am still a big believer in blogging. There are many reasons for this, but let’s just focus on two specific reasons. Then we’ll discuss how to deal with blogging exhaustion—or when to kill a blog entirely....
