I’m pretty sure most of us have had writers or ‘bloggers’ block, where you just simply cannot think forward and be creative with what to write about. We spend a lot of time creating content – taking pictures, thinking of titles and writing posts – so we want it to stand out and get as many eyes as possible. Here for you I have a few of my top tips to make your post stand out!
A title says a lot about your post, the tone, the topic, the audience and so much more. I find numbered posts such as ‘4 Best Drugstore Products’ ‘7 Bucket List Ideas’ are most catching to the eye, lists and also a play on words. Titles are what make a reader want to click your post, right?
It can be difficult to think of something unique and ‘out there’ every time you post, but even tweaking a standard post to make it a bit different to what everyone else has can make such a difference. Try making posts a little more personal by telling an honest opinion, story or anything that makes YOU stand out.
It’s good for your readers to be engaged, but being engaged for yourself is really important. If you’re bored writing a post and aren’t interested at all then it could become not your best quality work. If you have writers block then give yourself time to think until you feel ready to write a piece that you fall in love with.
When writing a post, and also when taking photos, create content how you want to create it. That way your true personality shines through and your readers will see you for who you really are. It helps you gain a lot more trust. Never be afraid to experimenteither!
An image can say a thousand words. If an image is visually appealing then it’s a lot more likely than readers will engage with and read your post. Photography blog props are really simple, cheap and easy to find. Make them original to, and that will really stand out.
If it’s ‘post day’ (i.e. a day you typically expect to post on) but are having a down day and have had no time to write up a post or even take photos, then don’t quickly create something just to post. Readers are much more focused on good quality content over the quantity that you post. Wait to post something you love and are passionate about, and better things will come of it.
