BE BOLD OR GO HOME
Get your #2 pencils out cause I've got a pop quiz for you!
Did Perez Hilton achieve his successful blogging site Perezhilton.com by:
a.) Delicately commenting on Hollywood gossip and stars
b.) Becoming a grammatically correct and beautiful writer
c.) Boldly speaking his mind and constantly pushing the limits.
An awesome fellow blogger, Copyblogger, declares in a recent post that blogging boldly is the way to keep people interested and coming back for more.
Audiences want to be entertained. So dilly dallying around your point, novel descriptions of what you ate/did last night/saw at the movies/your crazy dream, random uninteresting news, and not letting your personality show in your blog are sure ways to lose your audience. Try to avoid them at all costs.
Check out Copyblogger's site for more info on the subject.
COMING SOON: List of sites and blogs that excel at keeping readers around.
Until next time,
Sloane and Chelsea
