One of the best tips you can learn writing is to feel the rhythm of your blog… Are you like me? Loving to change your site around all the time? Try new ideas? Go off into new directions? That’s great! But what if those new directions are just a distraction to what makes your blog great?
This is where you have to feel the rhythm. Once you’ve been blogging for a while, you’ll begin to know which posts are garnishing a lot of interaction, and which ones are just getting the vague, usual “likes” (where you wonder if the person even read it before “liking”it). This is where you get to know your core audience.
WordPress is a great place for this because you get your own little world of interaction for your website among the big-big world of Google. So take your time to learn what people love about your posts. . .and which posts are just a distraction. After all, time, space and energy are all limited. So make sure it’s all useful.
At the same time… don’t be afraid to try new things! But when you do… leave it out there for a week and see how your base responds. If it’s just crickets chirping… it might be time to move on.
Looking for a way to break out of your rut? Not that your writing lately is bad. . . But it’s sure not improving either. . . Then try a collaboration! There is so much you can learn from other bloggers, as well as getting a taste for different flavors of writing. And there are special things about your writing than you can share with others, as well! If you haven’t yet, give it a try!
