It is important that you know what is going on in the world of blogging if you want to have a popular blog. In order to keep your site ahead of the competition, you have to embrace trends. Read on to find out how to use trends to make your site the most popular around.
If there is some sort of meme post currently buzzing, such as a video, tweet or photograph, post it on your site and then add your two cents. Many people will search for that item and being able to find it on your site will cause them to click through to you. The more salacious, the better! They may stick around on your site when they find so many great things to read, and this can really boost your readership.
If a celebrity does something good, or bad, post it on your site and then write about it. For example, when a celebrity feud goes down, you can put the post up and then write about who’s side you support or why you think they should quit behaving like babies. Once the fight is resolved, you can post again about the outcome.
If something happens in the news, such as a disaster or terrorism, you can write about it. Try to have a positive slant to your posts, such as listing where people can donate or send items to, or how well the victims are recovering. Dwelling in negativity is a real downer, and it can drive away your loyal readers. If you have a personal experience with a news-worthy event, be sure to share photos, video and a recounting of what went down on your blog. This is information that can’t be found anywhere else, so people will flock to your site to read about it.
If you have any political opinions, you can share them on your blog. Remember that people are extremely polarized when it comes to politics, so anything you post may drive off some of your readers. Only if you know that the bulk of your target audience will agree with you should you post about your political opinions. You never want to offend those who visit your site, so choose your words very carefully. Speak on facts and figures instead of engaging in name calling or low blows.
If you can dig up some good celebrity gossip, share it on your blog. If you can get the information first hand, you may end up with a huge spike in traffic as your site is the originator of the data. Even second hand information can be interesting if you supply a new slant on it, such as an opinion which isn’t already being bantered about.
Once you are a master in using trends on your blog, you will find that your readership goes up. That will allow your blog to get the recognition it deserves. Work hard to better your blog and great success will come your way.
