How popular are blogs?
Did you know there are more than 152,000,000 blogs on the Internet? (That is according to statistics in 2013!)
And somewhere a new blog is born every 30 seconds?
Blogging is clearly worthwhile!
This is the introduction to a series in which I will share how you can build a better blog, one that people will reach those for whom it’s written, and one that you will enjoy creating.
- If you are a writer, there are many reasons why you should be blogging, and we’ll cover those in the next few weeks.
- If you’re not a writer, what better way to keep in touch with your friends and family?
The term, BLOG, is a contracted word from WEB LOG. That’s all it is. A log, diary, journal, whatever you want to call it, which you publish on the web.
What better way to get known and further your writing dreams?
But . . .
It doesn’t have to be public. If you’re doing it to keep the family informed,
you can restrict it to members of the family or to your group of friends.
Building a Better Blog A to Z
This series was originally done as part of an A to Z challenge, which I love as it forces me to think out of the box. So each post will contain ideas that will encourage and inspire you as you look at your own blog. I will give you a week to read it and put the ideas into practice before I post the next one. Sign up to receive notification of the next post, so you don’t miss it.
I’d love you to leave a comment or question at the end of each post. If you include a URL in your comment, I will get back to you.
Coming next: Awareness Alert!
I plan to turn this into an eBook when I’m finished, so is there anything I haven’t covered under the various headings? When you read, please comment if you think of anything I should include. Thank you!
These posts were originally posted as part of the 2017 A to Z Blogging Challenge. Because I’m re-posting them with updates, I have reverted the originals to draft. I apologize if this causes any problems with missing links, but all the posts WILL repeat – on an approximately weekly basis.
