Blogging now has become a prominent place for people to hang out and share our knowledge. Not only this, blogging can be beneficial as it can give us online recognition and at the same time you can make money online through it.
But at the beginning of the blogging journey, many bloggers get confused on what to write and how to write so that it gets maximum attention. That’s what we are going to see today. We will see some great points that can help us become a creative blogger and then we would never get stuck about what to write and what not to.
“Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity” – Charles Mingus
After presenting this thought, I would like to move ahead with my tips for all bloggers which will help them to become creative bloggers.
1. Be a blogger every time
By saying “Be a blogger every time”, I am not saying to stay glued to your computers all day long. I mean that, even when not on your computer, don’t let your mind wander at useless places. Always try to see your surroundings in a way that you want to get something out of it.
You are hanging out with friends, very good. But sometimes, something happens around us that can give us an idea for our next post or maybe a whole series. Just keep your eyes open and you will surely get some ideas (creative ones). Not only when you are out, even while watching TV, listening to music or just sitting idle; you can flood your mind with bundles of ideas. All you need is just a little effort.
2. Creativity comes from inside
Being creative is not a thing that anyone can teach you. It’s you who can learn to become creative. Train your senses, to see the world around not in a regular manner, but with a creative angle.
Once you become creative in your personal life, then I bet you will rock the blogosphere with your hard-hitting creative ideas that will fill your blog with great creative content. How you can become creative? The answer is that, creative people don’t give up instantly on a question; rather they spend more time on solving it. Once solved, they again think if there is some other method to solve it. That’s the sign of creative persons. Develop it in yourself.
3. Think like a reader
This is one of the most important things to become a creative blogger. Are you just writing stuff on your blog that your readers are not at all interested?? Then maybe you should stop, take a break and forget that you are the owner of your blog.
Go to your blog, see its name and description and think what people think about the blog’s topic when they see your blog’s name. Check all your articles; are they complementing your blog’s description? Ask yourself, what kind of post do you want to read from your blog? Thinking like a reader will give you many loopholes in your blog and you can then easily fix them.
4. Use your imagination
Sometimes writing the normal things can be boring. Everyone needs a break or rather a unique experience. Like this your readers will love your thinking (creativity) and you will never run out of content.
As said by Albert Einstein – “Imagination is more important than knowledge”. Writing a post about some update, make it unique by adding a touch of your imagination. It’s possible that your readers might have read the article you are writing somewhere else. At such crucial times, it is your imaginative power; your creative skills that you add in your posts that make your readers read your full post even if they already know about it.
5. Be to the point
Have you ever seen videos that claim to give you tips to increase your blog’s traffic or increase your income?? Yes. Then you might know that they are just bullshit (as I think), never to the point.
So if you are writing a post and your readers aren’t getting what it is about even after reading the first or at most second paragraph, then they will too think its bullshit. Your first paragraph should be exactly to the point. It should convey the core of your post; must give an idea of what the post is all about.
6. Balance everything
Finally, it’s time to balance all the above points. This is the most crucial part. You can establish yourself as a creative blogger once you reflect your ability in your posts. Your writing skills, your socializing power, your promotions, blog marketing etc. should reflect your skills and every one out there will be compelled to believe of the creative power within you.
