My Blog Essentials
Here are My Blog Essentials for building a successful blog other than using HTML or other types of code. You can select a platform from my blog essentials or from somewhere else such as wordpress.com. There won’t be that much of a free hand in creating your blog that way. A customized URL is possible if you pay some money to wordpress.com
Having a blog you can customize is much more satisfying plus you learn so much more that way. I have a WordPress.org blog that means mine is self-hosted, so I can do anything I wish within reason. There are other self-hosted platforms I haven’t spent much time in investigating. I had another blogging platform on my mind at one time, but WordPress seemed much easier to work with.
In this article, I will only go into a few more essentials you need to do in order to own a successful blog. Link-building is one important consideration to building a blog with worth someday. There are right ways to building a useful link structure which will help you.
When you have read a blog which has relevance to your blog’s work I can make a recommendation. Contact that blog by submitting a relevant comment to the blog’s content. Don’t ever get into spam blogging which means submitting comments without reading first. You should know your work as you should know theirs. If it is not relevant to what you do than it was just something you read.
If your comment is published then you have started contact with that blog’s administrator. You can continue to read that blog as often as you wish to comment when you feel something. It is essential that it is relevant to promoting your blog before asking to share links. Adding links to WordPress is easy but may not help you unless it is performed right.
That is the recommended way to link building not wasting time or money purchasing products. On this blog, I don’t have comments yet or outside links to other people’s content. In my blogging past, I have had many links added which may have been relevant. Not many other blogs actually shared links with me because my content may not have been relevant to post my link.
Good accurate writing with proper grammar is another essential, but I don’t always know how my writing is sometimes until after publishing. It is necessary to proofread my posts many times even if I become tired working towards a deadline.
Grammarly has different versions of proofreading to edit grammar, punctuation or offer you more word choices. Grammarly can help you avoid plagiarism if you use the premium version which I subscribe to off “n” on. Yoast SEO can help you have good writing for a blog such as a WordPress as I have seen.
Picking titles to blog posts should be done with care if you want to attract a following. To be found on the web by potential subscribers that will read your posts is like a second career path. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) can be attained with Plug-ins a lot of the time. Widgets can give your WordPress blog visual appeal.
Content may require research into numerous topics unless it is your field which makes you an authority in your online hobby/career. Libraries are part of my blog essentials and helpful for my blogging knowledge which sometimes includes computer help and workshops. Let’s blog towards a better future and online identity.
