Are you ready to make some life changes? Maybe you want to lose weight, eat healthier or just stop procrastinating. Maybe you want to quit smoking or start your own crafting business. It doesn’t matter what you want to do to make your life better, what matters is how you go about making the changes you want to make.
So, now you are probably wondering exactly what blogging has to do with changing your life, right? Well, everything. You can sue blogging as your catharsis. You can use it as your motivation. And, best of all, you can use it to share your experience with others. You never know, you may inspire someone else!
Sharing is Caring
When you share your steps to whatever life changes you are making with readers on the internet you are giving them useful information. You are being genuine, and that will bring readers and it will keep readers. It is very likely that no matter what it is you are doing, whether it’s fighting cancer or fighting the bulge, someone out there will find inspiration from your story. If you don’t share it then, in a sense, you are keeping your ability to do some good for someone else away from the outlet it could do the most in.
Keep Them Interested
Don’t wait too long in between posts or updates. You may be forgotten about if you do. It’s totally understandable that not everyone has time to post on their blog on a daily basis, but if a week goes by and you haven’t updated your readers may move on. Another suggestion, from a blog post about website conversion on Patient Sites, says that using a call to action will also help keep your readers around. While they are using it to get readers to become clients, you can use it to get readers to commit to more than just reading your blog.
If you end your posts with a call to action, such as asking them if they’ve ever gone through the experience you just blogged about and how they dealt with it, they’ll be inspired to comment and to come back to see what other people have to say.
Keep It Positive
You never know who may read your blog, so keep it positive. This isn’t your personal diary, so you want to be enthusiastic. You also want to keep it all ages friendly. We all have a bad day now and then, but that doesn’t make it OK to swear online. It also doesn’t justify a ranting post about how your boss treated you. Keep in mind, your boss might be one of your readers.
If you have something you want to change and you think it could better other people’s lives, don’t keep it to yourself. Blog about it!
