If you have been blogging for any amount of time, you probably have your favorite bloggers. Have you ever wondered what drew you to those blogs? Probably because they stood out as more interesting then the others. Do you think that your blog has the same effect to readers? If you want to make money from blogging, then you will definitely need to make your blog unique.
Does this need to be hard? No way! In fact, you can make your blog stand out with just 4 steps.
1. Find your favorite subject (Niche): Whether you love food, travel, or work-at-home, writing what you are passionate about will show in your writing. Readers will be drawn to your posts and start to follow. Soon, brands will get word and start to offer compensation to be on your blog.
2. A picture (photo) is worth a thousand words: If it’s one thing I learned over the years, it’s that readers LOVE photos in posts. Many bloggers are starting to learn more about how to take a better photo for their blogs. Post several per post and make sure they are topic-related.
3. A beautiful blog: I truly believe that looks count here. A blog that looks to bogged down with flash lights, overly crowded sidebars, and a badly designed logo are a turnoff to advertisers. A clean and professional looking blog are what brands want to be connected to. You don’t have to spend a fortune either, there are many affordable designers out there. StudioPress has affordable WordPress Templates and support forum.
4. Take an unique perspective: Writing a well-crafted post doesn’t have to be hard-it can even be fun! A great way to learn is to to just study your favorite bloggers. Brands love it when you can take a product post and turn it into a great piece that doesn’t even sound like a review.
It’s possible for all of us to find our unique voice in this enormous blogging world. Just finding a way to be as creative as possible is the key.
