Really, what’s the point in spending a ton of time writing a blog post if no one is going to read it? Get a diary if you want it secret! Your blog is supposed to shine, you want people to see it, you want to go viral!

People will not only read your post but they’ll subscribe and come back for more in the future!
An SEO Friendly Title
Be upfront with how your post will add value to your reader’s life! Post titles should be around 70 characters long and contain a few great keywords as well.
Use a question and solution as an excellent way to grab a reader’s attention.
Make sure that internet browsers are able to easily find it. That means ‘search engine optimization’.
My go-to SEO for help is Yoast. With Yoast you can easily optimize your post title, meta description, slug, keywords, and readability.
Have a purpose when you start a post. Are you attempting to motivate your reader? Are you sharing information? What is your call to action? Have these in mind before you start writing.
You should be doing a lot of research before you even title your post. Actual experience gives your site authenticity that will show your uniqueness.
Great Quality Content
Make sure that you are editing your posts thoroughly. The last thing you want is a pile of run on sentences.
I was told to read my sentences out loud to catch any grammatical errors. Grammarly is what really saves my bacon though.
You can use their basic editing for FREE!! Their editing goes beyond what they call the “basics” to give your blog polished content.
Vegas casinos are notorious for creating a maze to keep patrons indoors and gambling, create this for your reader through links! Give readers options to keep reading, clicking.
You want an involved reader. Make yourself sticky by providing lots of interesting, resourceful material. The longer someone stays on your site the more likely they are to subscribe.
Attention Grabbing Pictures
Pictures give your blog character and help to make your site memorable.
Bright colors in photos help to liven up a technical blog and make it more welcoming. Create 3-5 pins per post. I use Picmonkey, to edit all of my photos, their templates makes my life infinitely easier.
I absolutely love using FREE stock photos, my go-to site is Pexels. You will never have to worry about picture rights because all their pictures are cleared to use.
Use Your Alt Text
Always include your ‘pin description’ in the ‘alt text’ when adding a photo to your site.
Alt text will be the text that shows up in your pinterest descriptions. So if someone pins your pin without updating the description you have one included! Utilize hashtags and keywords with thoughtful descriptions for your pins to really thrive.
Picture descriptions also aid search engines in finding your site with added keywords. Pictures and alt text will always be a win-win.
Share Everywhere Possible
Get your post out there! Pinterest, Twitter, and facebook are a great place to start. Link your post wherever you can.
Commenting on another blog? Share your website name in your signature when commenting on other blogs.
Get creative, contact companies, let them know you are writing about them and promoting them!
Remember to connect with your Reader. Give your reader a way to contact you with future questions and comments at the end of each post.
