Three Things Every New Blogger Should Know
Blogging is a fun and easy way to connect to your customers. Here are a couple important tips to get you started:
Tip #1Ever wonder why blogging has become so popular in recent years? One answer: accessibility. Anyone with decent spelling skills and a basic grasp of grammar can sit down and post a blog. Unlike traditional written media like newspapers and even paper advertisements, blogs are meant to read in a conversational tone. When you sound like a human being instead of a slick marketing whiz, readers will trust you and want to read more of what you have to say.
So go ahead, start blogging! There's no need to plan ahead. Simply introduce yourself and say what's on your mind. Think of it as stream-of-consciousness writing for the new millennium.
Tip #2While we're on the topic of blogging basics, let's talk spelling and grammar. Even if you won your elementary school spelling bee 5 years in a row, there are still a few words that fall below the radar of even the most diligent spellers. Besides, spell-check won't catch everything
Check out this list of the top spelling mistakes in blogs.
