Keeping IT Interesting!
I have thought about doing this series for a while now. Here is the premise behind this series and basically in a nutshell it is learning about writing from the bloggers who write on a daily, weekly, monthly basis. This will be a 4 part series.
I can tell you I stumble, fumble, suck, and fall flat at times when it comes to writing engaging content. I feel like creative writing comes natural to me, but the tough part is putting content out there that is engaging to your readers. I found my stride recently in adding CravesLife to my blog and my blog took off without me – ha! I have so much to learn and this is sorta where this series came from.
The key is practice, then practice some more and then practice again! I am a work in progress still when it comes to engaging content and learning more everyday.
What I have learned:
- For me I like to mix up the content of my blog
- It is okay to ask for feedback from your readers as to what is working and what they want more of
- Practice, Practice, Practice
Your Turn to Share . . . GO!!!
My blogs have a message or two or three to share with my readers. The hardest part is generating GREAT CONTENT to keep my readers coming back. Some days it is quite the challenge! However, that being said my readers help me in wanting to write great content.
So Thank You!!!
There are 3 key components to generating great content as a blog writer.
#1 Know Your Readers.
I have found that you really cannot generate and write great content until you really know your readers. What content brings your readers back? I now know what my teachers were trying to tell me about knowing your audience! So key as a writer, especially being a blog writer with so many blogs out there. Really need to stand your ground in the blogosphere!!!

#2 Know Your Subject Matter.
Your subject matter is basically the meat of the great content! For instance, travel. Then you fill around the meat with various topics, issues and questions pertaining to travel. Sorta like your veggies, grains and dessert. Your subject matter helps fuel discussion and comments, which is pretty cool when you actually hear from your readers!

#3 Know Your Message
Here is the FUN part of blogging, knowing and getting your message out there! Also, how you present that message out there and to your readers is so very important too!
- My Main Message – Travel, Explore & Adventure!
- My Secondary Message – Just Be Open to Life’s Possibilities and Live it to the Fullest!
- My Final Message – JUST HAVE SOME DARN FUN!!!
