I know I haven’t been blogging for all that long, but I will share with you some of the things I’ve learned in my experience. I think that personalizing your post can help your audience to relate to it better, and be more able to give their opinion on the topic. Sometimes asking a question is also effective. I know it’s easier for me to comment on a post when I have something specific to answer. Another thing I think is important to have in a post is pictures. I try to put pictures in most of my blog posts because I know that when I’m looking at someone else’s blog, the posts with pictures in them grab my attention right away.
Hopefully that’s helpful. I try my best to do those things and I get a lot compliments on my posts, so it’s working for me. =]
