People like to tell stories: share their personal experience about job, education and everyday life. One of the ideal ways to tell stories is blogging. According to wordpress.org., “Blogs range from the personal to the political, and can focus on one narrow subject or a whole range of subjects.” Blogging is not only an activity; it’s a life style which has some advantages like personal and professional growth.
Blogging is essential part of my life. I started to write posts 5 years ago on Kazakhstani blog-platform yvision.kz (sholpannur.yvision.kz) and this fact completely changed my life in positive way. I write posts about issues I’m interested in: books, movies reviews, short stories, poems and posts about social problems in Kazakhstan. In this post, I would like to present my own blogging rules which are helpful for me. I do not want to generalize them for everybody but hope they are interesting.
1. Be passionate.
Yes, I know you have heard this a million times, but it is real true. Posts with “soul” will be definitely successful. Personally, creating posts is like singing. If you sing with strong feelings, then audience will listen. For example, famous video blogger Michelle Phan started to post videos with beauty tips. She became a huge YouTube celebrity with more than a billion views. Moreover, now she owns her line of beauty products and writes books. It is really impressive, isn’t it?
2. Focus on quality and write systematically.
Some bloggers think that quantity of posts is the most important thing in blogging. However, I believe that writer should concentrate on the little elements of every post. Style, design and visual art are crucial for blog. In addition, bloggers should have the systematic approach for writing.
3. Make the list of your blog themes.
It helps to highlight your ideas and write more coherently. Planning is an inevitable part of success.
4. Keep going and be creative
Every human has the original story to tell. People need honesty and interesting facts. Blogs allow realizing this opportunity. I profoundly believe that communication through writing is pure magic. So, let the magic begins!
