The blogging world is big and hard which makes it difficult for bloggers to breakthrough. After reading quite a few blogs (some famous and some being on the verge) I made a small list of steps from a reader’s point of view which can turn your blog rad:
Introduce a new Brand– If you are a personal style blogger, the best way to gain traffic and more hype among the blogging-world is to introduce a new brand through your outfits. You not only advertise the brand, but you also raise awareness among the bloggers for the product.
Incorporate more content in each post– It is always nice to make your blog post more interesting. Writing 3 blog posts won’t make it interesting if you can incorporate all three topics into one post. If you have a solid content, readers will look forward to your posts even if you are not that regular.
Originality is the key -It is written in countless websites that originality is the key and I concur. Giving your views on a certain issue will help which other sites do not offer. It is nice to adapt ideas from sites like Fashionista, Independent Fashion Bloggers, The Cut or Teen Vogue but copy-pasting stuff won’t help!
Photoblog– If you are a photographer or an illustrator, a photo blog is the best way to emit your talent. Make sure to post some original stuff and insert a portfolio and a contact page as well.
Personalize your articles– One of the things for which Style Bubble is famous for is because the author connects with the readers through her content. Putting articles in a way which connects the author and the content is the best way. This is perhaps the main difference between a magazine and a blog. Articles are more personalized in the latter.
A simple layout but an attractive header– A fancy blog layout won’t help much. All the leading blogs do not have a fancy layout but an attractive header. This helps the readers to focus on the content more and appreciate the header as well. Keep your blog layout as crisp and clean as you can and keep your sidebar as organized as possible.
Other ways– Some other ways to gain more followers and turn your blog rad is to Guest Post on other blogs; cover a Local Event near your area; Look for Internships to test your competence; Contribute to other magazines and websites.
