                                  To increase traffic to your blog it is a good idea to vary the
                                  format of your posts. A page of text doesn't usually appeal or
                                  attract visitors. It's best to mix things up a bit. Post a video, add
                                  some links to other places on the net that will inform and
                                  entertain your readers or consider a photo set once in a while.
                                  Variety in your presentation will keep your visitors coming back.

                                  Be sure to openly present yourself on your blog. Create an
"About Me" page with the type of information you wish to share, as long as you feel that it
expresses you properly. Also try including these types on any other sites that you tend to be
active on.

If possible, have someone else go over your blog posts before you post them. This is especially
critical for internet marketing posts. People have a tendency to be blind to their own errors, so
they will often miss problems with grammar, spelling, sequence, or logic. Another person may
also be able to provide information you have left out or correct errors of fact.

You can not spend enough time trying to find the right color for your blog. You need to find a color
that reflects your niche and adds excitement to the topic. At the same time, you do not want a
color that is difficult to look at for a long period of time.

Since blogging is on a personal level you should avoid writing formally. You should still write in a
professional manner and use proper grammar. Your readers will be able to relate to you more
when you are writing to them in a casual way and will continue reading your blogs.

If you are an internet marketer, use your blog to build your email list. While posting direct
advertising posts in the blog will probably turn off readers who come to your blog for information,
putting an email sign-up box on your blog's sidebar, gives readers an unobtrusive way to receive
marketing information from you should they like your blog.

Consider adding pictures or music to your blog. Stimulating their senses will create a fuller
experience, and increase the pleasure of your visitors. Choose pictures and sounds that are
relevant to the content of your blog. Before you chose anything, be certain that you are not in
relevant to the content of your blog. Before you chose anything, be certain that you are not in
violation of any copyright laws.

Just because you're operating a blog, that doesn't mean that your site doesn't have to look nice.
Every blog should be appealing, so take your time to design an attractive site. Most hosts will
have template tools you can use, so make the most out of them by adding attractive features that
will really pop when people visit your page.

Make it a point to sign up to your own blog's RSS feed so that you can see what users see when
they sign up. If you see anything that seems difficult to read or if you feel any information is
missing, you can change that before giving visitors access to it.

An important part of any blog is to feature the latest posts at the top of your homepage. With so
many blogs abandoned or out-of-date, it's important to let readers know that yours is current. This
way, your readers will have fresh, new posts to read and you will get the best exposure for your
newest content.

An excellent tip for blogging is to make use of WordPress. This particular platform is extremely
flexible with the various plug-ins that are used when it comes to blogging. WordPress is being
utilized by over 12% of a million of the largest websites. It is currently the most popular CMS
being used today.

Having active commentary on your blog is an effective way to maintain traffic. This is because
comments are content just like blog articles. Readers will revisit your blog not only to read new
articles, but also to see if anyone has left new comments. You can encourage commenting by
asking questions and inquiring about your readers' perspectives in your blog articles.
Responding to comments also encourages commenting.

You now realize that blogging is a skill that can be cultivated and used in a meaningful way to
create confidence in your customers and website visitors. Establishing a relationship with those
you do business with can be achieved with the simple and effective blogging techniques learned
here. Use them to your advantage and start today.
