How many blog posts, giving you the ‘best’ advice on blogging, have been BORING?
Nearly everyone single one.
Unless you count adding graphics to blog posts, then adding tags and keywords isn’t much, FUN? Is it?
I mean it’s never been fun. But why not?
There are so many fun ways to spice up your blog, gain you more readers and get you more comments, likes and views!!!!
1. Add A Unique Feature!
I don’t know about you, I’ve always wanted to add one of these. Adding a feature, like ‘blogger interviews’ or ‘Daily Discussions’ is always fun. It’s hard to stick out from the crowd sometimes , and adding a fun feature could just be the thing to give you a burst of traffic! People want unique, so give them it! Make a feature JUST for your blog, to make sure everyone’s screaming for more!
2. Make Your Own Tag/Award
This is a bit similar to the first one but it could really gain your popularity. Imagine if you award gets as viral as the Liebster Award? Say, one of your rules is to mention the creator of the tag (you!), you’d be famous!!! It’s really fun to create your own award and nominate people!!
3. Host A Giveaway!
Giveaways are always fun, for you and your audience. The prize doesn’t have to be expensive, maybe not even something physical. It could be a book or a secret to your followers. Maybe try a voucher?
4. Create A Contest
Everybody loves a bit of competition, especially me, and there’s nothing like creating a perfect contest for everyone to get stuck into! Maybe to design a blog or a bookmark! Who can crack the best joke? Make the prize a guest post, a voucher, it’s up to you!
5. Have An Interview, Guest Post Or Q/A
Interviews are always fun! Quiz a fellow blogger, crack some jokes, sip some coffee! Maybe have a Q/A with your readers. Let someone guest post. Have a chat with them, play a game, just have someone ELSE on your blog. Inviting a guest round is always fun for everyone!!
6. Create A (Free) Printable
I, personally, find printables really fun! Creating them is just half the fun. Distributing them, for free, is also very enjoyable. Maybe a template, a checklist or whatever you want!
Fun? I hope it was! I’m going to do some of this myself, but what about you? Do you do any of these? DO you find normal advice boring too? Are you thinking of trying one of these? TELL ME!!
