Having committed to the 30 day Marketing and Blogging Challenge issued by Stuart Ross to Elite members of the Six Figure Mentors, I realize that I have to come up with a lot of new topics to blog about!
Suddenly my mind goes blank and I think what on earth am I going to write about?
I’m sure I’m not alone in this.
So today I thought I’d give you some suggestions on how to approach blogging, and here are:
My top tips for successful blogging
1. Become Results Orientated
In other words, when blogging think ‘Will people really be able to use the information I’m providing?’
If you can help people make positive changes in their lives, they will thank you for it. And repay you by becoming a regular visitor to your site.
2. Write conversationally when blogging.
Unless you are producing blogging content that is technical, write as if you are chatting to your readers. Be informal and make them feel like friends. Let them get to know the real you.
3. Think about the challenges and problems that your readers might be having.
And tell them about solutions. Even the smallest thing can be a major problem to someone who doesn’t know how to deal with it. ‘How To’ guides are really popular, particularly if you can show someone in a video exactly how to do something.
People love guides to the way to do things or lists that they can tick off as they go along.

5. Don’t spend hours researching content
unless you are blogging about a specific project or detailed guide. Just post regularly and keep your content easy to read.
6. Try not to be too wordy
People don’t have the time to read a book. If you have a lot to say on a topic, perhaps you could split it into more than one post.
7. Give your readers variety!
For instance, I often prefer to read rather than watch video (although I think I might be in the minority here!) because I can scan written text to pick out anything I might find interesting.
8. Follow other interesting blogs and sites for ideas
You can do this by using RSS feeds or Feedly. Remember if you use content from someone else’s blog, you should always link back to it and credit them as the author.
9. Keep notes on new things you learn or experiences you have
They can be very useful for blogging about
10. Don’t worry about being blogging perfect all the time
or you’ll never start. Just get your posts out there, but be professional ie good spelling and grammar.
Now to follow my own advice!
