While getting the hang of new technology may overwhelm you at first, blogging is simple enough that nearly anyone can participate. Of course, there is a certain level of skill and creativity involved with developing a captivating blog, but you can learn what you do not know and cultivate your skills to really get your message across to website visitors.
If you are interested in blogging, but you don’t particularly like to write, try starting a blog about one of your creative talents. You could try a photography blog and share your hobby with others. Or you may write poetry or music that you could post samples of. If people like what you have to offer, they will come back for more.
To garner more interest in your blog, a great idea is to comment on other blogs. If you like Google reader, create a separate folder in it for other blogs you’re following. Visit these sites regularly and, when you do, leave comments.
Harness the power of web 3.0. The web isn’t just text anymore, so neither should your blog. Use many different types of content to enhance your blog posts. For instance, if you are posting about a trade show in your niche, add a Youtube video of the event so that people can experience it more directly. If you are posting about a new product, include a Flash product demonstration.
