10 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Blog

Whether you're just starting out or trying to refine your blog(s), you may want to try these ten helpful tips. These are the most common things that I have found in the most successful blogs:

1.) Write for quality, not quantity: Explain your point but don't bore the readers.

2.) Write frequently: By this I mean write at least 4 out of the 7 days of the week.

3.) Publish feeds: Make sure you publish your feeds to RSS. Feedburner works well.

4.) Develop a voice: Be original! Don't copy others' work, but instead develop your own.

5.) Use good keywords: Make an attractive title for every post, and use Technorati to tag words. (Use Fintan's Tag Generator to do the html for you, just input your own tags!)

6.) Stay up to date: No news is better than old news, again boring your readers with old info.

7.) If you are making a blog to help others, make sure you are very informative and speak to everyone as if they are just a beginner on that topic.

8.) Edit your work: Make sure to correct misspellings and typos to help you sound more mature and well spoken.

9.) Write for yourself first: Write about what you enjoy or a topic that you know a ton about so you don't get burned out really fast. This is a must!

10.) Make friends: Trade links with other blogs, comment on other blogs, and be courtious to your audience if you really want to develop a readership.

If you have any other tips or idea, feel free to post them in the comments section of this post!
