In the blogging world, wisdom has it that content is king. That means, they ultimate way to drive people to your blog (or website) involves producing great copy. The more superb and useful content you produce, the more readers and traffic you will see coming to your blog or website. So it’s time to get writing!
I see more and more bloggers offering great, free content on their blogs as well as on social networking sites ever day. They amount of content they produce amazes me. They could be writing books…and maybe they are. In any case, the content they produce offers added value to any and all that read their words. I for one know that I often find myself clicking through to discover who these people are and what else they are writing.
With that in mind, I’d like to encourage you once again to blog that book! Or to just continue blogging away and offering great content in your blog that attracts readers (and agents and publishers). However, while I feel strongly that content, indeed, is king, I would have to admit that many other things must be done to differentiate your writing from the other writers and bloggers out there—and every day more bloggers decide to enter the Cyber publishing world.
So, how will you differentiate yourself amongst the million voices all striving to get the same attention and readership? How will you reach out to an audience already drowning in noise? That’s a question asked by Mellisa Tamura from ZenCollegeLife at www.Smartbloggerz.com. She says, “Good content alone will not do the trick – there has to be something more then just hoping that people will read your blog entries.” She offers 10 proven ways to get more readers, more attention and more traffic to your blog.
