Learn From These 6 Blogging Blunders

Learn From These 6 Blogging Blunders | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
In the upcoming Summit for Content Marketing, I was asked to discuss Blogging Blunders. I've always believed there's much to learn from others
janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article from Curatti written by Andy Capaloff because it provides insights into common mistakes made in blogging.

 

We learn by seeing what other content curators have done.

 

Content Marketing Blunder Lessons

 

Many marketers make mistakes when it comes to publishing blog articles. I agree that you need to take a look at the mistakes of others in order to have a good understanding of what works.

 

Capaloff explains what to look for when it comes to a great blog post versus a poor one.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Poor spelling and grammar can be a turnoff for readers. You shouldn't write your posts too quickly -- take the time to edit them before they are published.

 

  • Stay away from writing too much text and go with a conversational style instead. This will encourage people to want to read your articles.

 

  • Don't make the reader work hard to understand your blog posts. You don't need to set out to prove brilliance.

CurationSoft Launches the First Desktop-Based Drag and Drop Blogging Tool

CurationSoft.com announces new software which enables bloggers to take advantage of the rising trend in content curation.

 

Content publishers are always on the lookout for better tools to help them find and work with content for their curated articles. Several tools now exist as hosted solutions for reading the news, but there are limitations for publishers who need to port the content they curate to their blogs' editor for easy publishing.

 

CurationSoft http://www.curationsoft.com is the first serious player in the desktop software arena to allow content curation on many different platforms. By allowing writers to quickly type in a keyword and search YouTube, Google blog search, Twitter, and Flickr, then review and organize the results, the tool makes discovery much easier.

 

Once pictures, videos, or stories have been selected for curation into a post, along with the writer's own commentary, they can simply drag and drop the content into their editor across all blog platforms.
