                                              Blogging can be a great way to share your life with
                                              others, while offering them ways to better their lives.
                                              It involves telling your story, while contributing to the
                                              lives of others. Read the tips below to learn more
                                              about getting started in the world of blogging and
                                              begin telling your story.

                                             Make sure to take advantage of the chance to place
                                             social networking buttons on your site. This is very
                                             valuable because it encourages users to help you
with the marketing of your site. Without them you will be forced to do all of the marketing for your
site on your own.

Use the correct spam filter for comments. If you require registration to comment, a CAPTCHA on
the registration page is usually sufficient to keep spammers away. If you allow anonymous
comments, an "advanced CAPTCHA," that is, one that asks the user for "the number of hours in a
day" or something similar is usually enough. Avoid services like Akismet, as these produce lots
of false positives.

Use stirring titles that will generate responses or debates. Make your titles intriguing enough to
entice your readers to continue reading, and voice their opinion, or ask questions that beg the
reader to include their thoughts. Do not be drawn into conflict whenever possible, but moderate
the conversation with your own input.

Everyone makes mistakes, it is only natural. It is helpful to use Google Webmaster Tools when
checking your work to point out any mistakes that you might have made. All you will need to do
then is go and fix them, and nobody will ever see anything that you have messed up on.

Be sure to link to yourself. Do not be so shy about what it is that you write, and don't rely on
others to find you. Try linking to yourself as often as possible. This is known as interlinking, and
is great for SEO. Its biggest advantage is helping boost your content's awareness.

There's an old rule that says, in order to make money, you have to spend money and that's true,
even when it comes to blogging. If you take some money and put it aside for purchasing
advertising, such as Google adwords or Yahoo ads, then your website will receive that much
more traffic and exposure.

Keep your individual post focused on one point. Blog with the full knowledge that you will be
making many subsequent posts and if you tell everything in the beginning you may not have
making many subsequent posts and if you tell everything in the beginning you may not have
anything left to say later! Think of your blogs as being the spokes in a wheel. By themselves they
are important but as a wheel they are incredibly important.

Create a unique and interesting title for each of your blog posts. The title should instantly engage
the reader, causing the desire to learn more. Even the best article can be doomed by a lackluster
title. Consider using humor, drama, or any other appropriate play on words to create your title.

It is vital that you place keywords that are relevant in the title of your blog. Without having relevant
keywords, it will be increasingly difficult for your readers to locate your blog. Make use of All-In-
One SEO in order to have greater control over the titles that are across your blog.

Post on your blog regularly. By making consistent contributions to your blog, you will be able to
build up a regular readership. If you lack consistency, your readers will lose faith in you and will
quit checking back to see what's new. Make sure you write a post a day, even if they are just
short posts sometimes. In this way, your readers will know you haven't forgotten about them.

It is a good idea to keep the amount of ads on your site to a minimum. Many amateur bloggers
make the mistake of being so concerned about revenue that they load their site with all types of
ads. This is likely to scare off potential customers because most people do not like excessive
ads.

Use bulleting to ensure that certain points stand out in your blog. Bulleting is used in traditional
print media as well. That is because it makes even difficult to digest material more manageable
for readers. Bulleting should be reserved, of course, for delineating the most important parts of
your text.

Make sure that you consistently post when running a blog. If you don't post content regularly, then
your site traffic will diminish fairly quickly. Have a guestbook or contact information posted as
well, so your audience can interact and provide feedback. If your readers are happy with your
response, they are more likely to come back.

As you probably already know, creating a blog can be overwhelming at first, because the
possibilities and potential for blogs are endless. The tips and techniques from the above article
were gathered to help you create a blog that will get your message across to the audience that
you are seeking to reach.
