Platform Building, Day 5: Start a Blog

TASK

Today’s task is reformatting my blog. This should be interesting because I have to do assignments for school using this blog as well. Since the main topic is writing, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

  1. Create a Blog
  2. Write a Post for Today

TIPS FOR OPTIMIZING YOUR BLOG

  • USE IMAGES IN YOUR POSTS (I’m very infrequent myself with doing this. cropped-beterrific_header-10.jpg
  • USE HEADERS IN POSTS: Bolding little headlines in the post will make them clearer to your viewer. (Another infrequent practice for me).
  • WRITE SHORT: I read in other blogging resources to keep the length to 500 words. Unless you are writing a book.
  • ALLOW COMMENTS: This allows your readers to interact with you. Building a platform and audience requires you to step out from your comfort zone and engage with your audience.
