What makes a good blog?

Pete

Photography and music are my two passions. I edited photography magazines for around 20 years and launched the UK's first digital imaging magazine. I founded ePHOTOzine and was owner / publisher until 2013. The photos in my portfolio are ones I like from shoots I do in any spare time I have.

What makes a good blog?

18 Jun 2008 10:33AM   Views : 281 Unique : 247

Blogging has been going on for many years on the internet. It became popular for those who wanted to have a column/diary online...and has grown vastly. There are many web products that allow you to integrate a blog into your own web site or as a standalone blog.

Individuals use them as a daily record to keep their friends in the know
Experts use them to share their knowledge
Marketeers have use blogs to promote their businesses.

The key to a good blog is to make it interesting.
Saying what you had for dinner may not be interesting, but if you turn that into something like Jesse's Diet from the Fast Show you'll soon have your audience coming back for more.

Also talking about the latest gadget you bought may not appeal, but if you turn that into a review saying why you bought it what it does well and what's not good will gain you respect.

If you have a problem with your PC/camera/software moaning about it is fine, but saying how you fixed the problem will give others a reason to check out your latest tricks.

If you go on holiday write a diary of the days, add some local facts and people will come back for your guides.

Or just ramble on and amuse yourself (like I'm doing here Wink
...blogging can be fun, but keeping up is the hard bit. I'm managing so far.

I'm from the school of rambling too Pete, as anyone who has read my efforts so far will testify.
