7 Simple Tips to Write Catchy Headlines That Will Attract More Readers

Super helpful post!

Shards of Bards

Riddle me this:I am something. If you dress me up fine and make me as attractive as ever, I would bring you all the blog readers that you desire. But if you dress me up terribly or pay no attention to my physical appearance, I just might steal from you the blog readers that you have already.

What am I?

Go on and think. I’ll wait.

If you still haven’t figured out the answer yet, it’s a headline.

Are you surprised?… Well, don’t be.

Many years ago, long before the internet, people would usually skim through an article before deciding whether or not to read that article. But in today’s world, people have an attention span that’s shorter than that of a goldfish.

What with the collosal amount of information — notifications, social media posts, emails, blog articles, websites, books, and local newspapers — that people have to digest…

Common Blogging Mistakes And How To Avoid Them

It is easy to not reach your blogs full potential due to minor mistakes. A lot of bloggers especially when starting out tend to make these small but detrimental mistakes. Here are some of the mistakes and how you can take your blog to the next level by avoiding them.

Too many tags- Tags are a great way to get traffic to your blog but when you use too many tags on your post WordPress automatically assumes you’re a spammer and takes your post off the discover/reader section. This can decrease your traffic and consequently the amount of likes/follows you get.

Solution- To avoid this make sure to use a maximum of ten tags per post. If you feel that those are really not enough change your settings to make the maximum tags per post higher.

Not engaging with others- WordPress is very much a two way street. You cannot expect people to consistently support your blog if you’re not supporting theirs. If you don’t leave likes/comments/shares on other peoples blog they are not going to leave them on yours.

Solution- To solve this problem try to be as active as possible- I know it can be time consuming but check out who regularly leaves likes/comments on your blog and try to repay the favor when you get the time.

Being disorganized- It is very easy to get disorganized especially when you start blogging because you’re not sure how to categorize everything yet and may not even know what your niche when writing on this blog will be. Unfortunately, this can cause a decrease in traffic and follows.

Solution- To be more organized use categories and make sure they are displayed on the sidebar so that your readers can check out similar posts on the topics they are interested in. Also try not to have too many categories because that will just make it more confusing- stick to the main ones.

Not responding to comments- Even though responding to all the comments you get can be time consuming it is always a good idea to respond to your readers because it keeps them engaged with your blog. If you constantly ignore their comments they will most likely stop commenting and eventually stop viewing your posts altogether.

Solution- To avoid this make sure to respond to comments and if you’re busy you don’t need to respond to every comment instantly- schedule a few minutes every day to respond to comments.

Image result for socializing gif

Posting irregularly- This in my opinion is one of the main reasons that a lot of people lose traffic/followers. I myself stopped posting regularly for a few months and saw a dramatic decrease in traffic. Most people want to follow a blog that is more regular and posts on similar times because then they know when to check for new posts. If you’re posting randomly your followers may miss your new posts simply because they didn’t know you posted anything.

Solution- To post more regularly try to keep a schedule of when you have the highest views on your blog and post during these peek times. I know that a lot of times life gets in the way and it is difficult to post regularly- if this is the case try scheduling your posts or writing them in advance so all you have to do is press publish.

Are You Guilty of Making These Mistakes?

The Art of Blogging

Some of the folks who offer “blogging advice” seem to be focusing on what you shouldn’t do instead of offering advice on what to do. Perhaps this is a more effective way to get certain points across?

Okay. Here are four of the biggest mistakes people make.

How I Got 1000 Followers In Two Months (And How You Can Too)

I was so excited to realize that I had recently reached 6000 WordPress followers which meant I had gained a little over 1000 followers in 2 months. This is the most followers I have gained in two months and I thought I would share some ways in which you can get more followers on your blog too- if you’re interested in gaining followers- if not don’t worry there are lots more posts on this blog with different topics you can check out. Hope these tips help!

Be very active– Blogging is a two way street. You can not expect people to like, follow or share you’re posts if you never do the same. I mean you don’t have to like every post every follower of yours puts out but at least make an effort to reply to comments and read and like some of the posts on your reader from the blogs you follow.

Be genuine– Your followers will be able to tell if you’re genuinely interested in something or are faking it for views and they will always enjoy the posts you are genuine in much more. Try to be genuine and write about things you are truly passionate about.

Edit well– Grammar mistakes and typos are a normal part of writing and it happens to everyone but when your posts have multiple grammar mistakes and a lot of typos it gets hard for the reader to read and breaks your flow. It also makes your blog look less professional and people are less likely to follow it. To get more followers try to take some time to edit your posts so that the reader gets the best experience possible and is way more likely to follow.

Use the right tags– Don’t overdo it with the tags but don’t stop using tags completely either. I would say about 5-10 is the right amount of tags to get more traffic to your blog which means more followers. Another thing is don’t lie in your tags- like for example don’t tag it ‘food’ if the post has nothing to do with food. It’s very annoying when people do that and it only makes people dislike you for lying.

Image result for hashtag gif

Be organised– In my opinion, this is probably the most important one. Try to be organised and punctual with your posting. If you post randomly whenever you feel like you won’t get the optimum views and follows plus your followers will be confused and won’t know when to check your blog for new posts. After posting more regularly on a daily basis I have seen a huge difference in both my followers and views.

Smell Through The ….. (Guest Post)

Recently I’ve had my eyes opened massively . To find out that someone you loved more than anything cheated all the way through your relationship. That also includes sleeping with people. I’ve seen the proof.

I tell you what though it hurts knowing on a night (like so many I did this) I picked her up from town when she was drunk. Moments before shes kissing someone else.

Its all coming out and the proof is undeniable.

And I’m looking through all these messages where she would threaten to kill herself because I couldn’t come over. The amount of times I would have to contact her friends as I was worried about it. The amount of times this was threatened is unbelievable.

All I ever wanted to do was help.

I never see this person now it was years ago I just hope they are in a better place & good luck to the next guy…or the next few.

5 Ways To Make Your Blog Look More Professional

Get more traffic to your blog by making it look more professional!

lifesfinewhine

You do not need to necessarily have a super professional looking blog but it would help increase both traffic and followers. It would also help if you are thinking of attracting sponsors or working with other blogs as more companies are likely to work with you if you have a very professional looking blog. Anyway, here are some tips that might help you out

1. Edit- One of the first things people tend to notice is whether or not your post has been edited. It may not seem like a big deal and it may seem like your writing is fine but a lot of times when you reread your post you will find little mistakes you didn’t even realize you had made. Make sure to read through it at least once to check for spelling errors and grammar mistakes. A well edited post shows the reader that you have…

5 Social Media Marketing Do’s and Don’ts from a freelance Social Media Consultant

Really great tips!

ThisthingcalledFashion

5 Social Media Marketing Do’s and Don’ts, THISTHINGCALLEDFASHIONIt’s about time I wrote about this, not just from a social media consultants perspective but also as a blogger/influencer who has been disgusted by ill-mannered marketing approaches and blown away by well thought out messages.

DON’TS

Don’t be spammy.

Just don’t do it. Do not send DMs/comments requesting for a follow back or create a group and share a link to your new product/post without permission.

Don’t ignore comments: Engaging with your customers is vital for business. They feel heard & more relevant but with no engagement they may feel as if you don’t care about their question, comment or concern. It all comes back to customer service. Don’t ignore relevant comments. Use them as an opportunity to interact with your followers.

Don’t rely on automation: This aspect is still very new to Nigerian business which is a good thing on this case because the brands still maintain…

How To Push Your Way Out Of The Comfort Zone (Guest Post)

At that moment, when you realize that everything turned out and life was a success, it turns out that the diligent comfort zone so diligently conceals an immense danger.

There is such an old and very right saying: “Fish looks for is deeper water, man for better places to live.” And this is absolutely correct and natural. Each person strives to make his life as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. . It would be complete idiocy to abandon these benefits of civilization.

It would seem, well, what is wrong with a quiet, comfortable existence? You feel relaxed, there are no risks in your life, you are satisfied with how things are going, and you do not feel any need to change anything. Maybe you do not feel incredibly happy, or 100% satisfied, but at least you feel comfortable, right?

No.

Almost always your comfort zone is the fruit of self-deception. You tell yourself that the best alternative to your current position does not exist, that you have spent too much effort to build it, that it is already too difficult to change anything in life. You stop at one place, although quite a convenient location, and with your own hands nullify all the great prospects of your life. The comfort zone turns you to the end point of your journey. Why is this happening?

You become soft.
What happens to a person who takes a bath of warm water for a while? He relaxes, limp. And if such a stay stretch for quite a long time? That is right, and it is degrading. His muscles lose their tone and very soon he will not be able not only to run but even just to stand still.

But this concerns not only the body. The same thing happens with our brain. The lack of the need to solve complex problems makes it to where liquefaction in the head and loss of clarity of thinking, ability to learn and make decisions.

You become a vegetable that moves along the same trajectory every day and performs the same tasks every day.

In the meantime, remember which period of your life was the most fruitful and creative for you? I am sure that these were not the most pleasant and comfortable times. Some will remember sleepless student nights, other life-threatening journeys and situations, and still others — crisis periods in their lives when everything had to start all over again.

You give up on life goals.
Everyone, well, almost everyone, a person has somewhere deep in the sub cortex that most cherished goal of his life. Yes, something from the series “to see Paris and die.” The most exciting thing is that very often these goals are not so expensive and unattainable. But something always bothers us.

We postpone our goal further and further, and as the comfort zone grows around you, it becomes practically unattainable. It is so difficult to get out of a warm bath even for a while and go out into the street.

You may never know yourself
There is an opinion, and it has been justified entirely, that only in difficulties the real face of a person is revealed. You can live your whole life in greenhouse conditions and never know what you really can do. Can you really be bold and inventive? Do you be able to show patience and perseverance, or does it just seem to you?

It is time to get out of your comfort zone and understand, if only for yourself, what kind of person you are and where lies the limit of your possibilities. I assure you that the result will surely surprise you.

Sooner or later, the comfort zone for any person turns into that factor which slows down its development and deprives life of sharpness of sensations. Remember the most exciting moments of your life. Surely most of them are connected precisely with those moments when you were doing something unusual, extreme, going beyond the usual routine, leaving your comfort zone.

So why not do it again?
