This week was supposed to be a week of blog experimentation. I picked out 3 best known ways to improve a blog, and set to with gusto.
This was my plan from improving my blog
1 Two posts a day (one at midnight to catch the eastern hemisphere and one at 17:00 to catch the western traffic)
2 More careful choice of keywords (at least check the keywords in Keyword Tool and make sure the words are in the title, tag and in two or three places in the text)
3 Better use of headlines (at least check down a list of good headline recipes and improve a little).
Do you think these are the most important ways to improve a blog?
I am sure if I persisted, I would get better results. Do you think I would get better results with these three disciplines?
My results after 3 days
But I am bored. The Secrets of . . . Doing X like a Y. It just doesn’t grab me. This feels like writing university essays.
I don’t even want to run experiments. Experiments are close-ended. There is no surprise.
I want adventure in what I do – even in a blog post written from a town in the countryside.
I want a set of headlines that talk about adventure. Are there none because the audience doesn’t like adventure or because copy writer don’t think adventure?
How do you get the best return from your blog?
How do you approach blog writing? What have you done consciously to improve your blog? Did it work?
Any ideas about how I can make my blog into an adventure – even a little one. An itsy bitsy tiny adventure that is surprising?
