posts are heartbeat

Blog posts can be likened to the heart beat of a blog. They determine the health of the blog, its status and future. It is the most important element of the blog. Therefore, those who wish to improve their blogging skills need to consider how to write effective posts. What makes an effective post?  (See some suggestions at Nine signs of an effective post)

Choose one of the following and write a blog post to share:-

  1. Provide a link to an effective post from a blog you have found (preferably not a post you have written). What is it about this post that makes it effective? What characteristics do effective posts share?
  2. Five steps to an effective blog post (or choose your number of steps)
  3. Five effective blog post ideas

Then please:-

  • Add appropriate categories and tags. Make sure one tag is #ksyb Consider other tags eg effective_ blog_posts, what_makes_effective_blog_posts etc The search engines will pick up on these tags and drive more people to your blog.
  • Add a comment back to this post with the link to your post. (See extension activity)
  • Find at least three other bloggers in this challenge and comment back on their post. Add a question where possible to keep the conversations going.
