A Stale Blog Turns Readers Off.
What is a blog?
A blog is like an online diary, sort of. You can fill it with all kinds of content like articles, audios, videos, and images. You can stick to one specific type of media on your blog or mix it up.
What should your blog be about?
There are so many topics that you can write about, from weight loss, fitness and health, a fictional character, to recipes, business marketing, parenting, hobbies, your life, books reviews, and fashion. If you can think of it, it’s almost guaranteed that there are others interested in that same topic.
A blog is a great place to express your opinion and let the whole world know what you think about various topics. You alone are in charge of your blog’s message.
If you have a business a blog is really a necessity, it helps keep your customers and potential customers up to date about your business, products, and services.
If you blog for fun or monetize your blog with affiliate offers and you want to establish a large base of readers, you will need to keep your blog from going stale.
While readers may from time to time come back and check out some of your older posts and reread posts that they really enjoyed, they do expect to see new content as well.
Without adding new content, your blog will go stale and you will leave readers disappointed and wanting for more.
Lack of content is a sure-fire way to lose the readers that you have gained.
It can also turn off potential readers when they see that you really don’t have much to offer.
There are several ways that you can get good content for your blog.
1. You can write all of your content yourself. Brainstorm the internet for ideas in the niche that you’re in and begin penning your articles.
2. You can ask fellow bloggers to contribute an article as a guest blogger or ask them to be a co-writer so they will be supplying content along with you, giving your readers plenty to read.
3. Use free reprint content. Many article directories allow you to use their content as long as you keep the whole article intact as well as the author’s bio box, which gives them a backlink from your blog to their site.
4. You can use PLR content. This is pre-written content that you can purchase. You can edit the content as you see fit, using all or just part of it and unlike the free reprint articles, you don’t have to attribute the content to anyone or add a link to anyone else’s website.
This saves you time since you don’t have to come up with the content yourself. Keep in mind that all PLR content isn’t created equally and many sites sell junk articles.
If you use one or more of these methods, you will have plenty of blog content. Consistent quality content will help you to establish a larger base of readers in your blog community.
