Understanding The Challenges In Blogging

Friday 2 September 2011 @ 12:07 pm

Despite the successes and advances that have been achieved in the use of web blogging, there exist some challenges which affect blogging. Many of this challenge can be looked at in their own unique way or collectively. To start, bloggers in different places around the world some times have to contend with the problem of slow internet connectivity. This can partly be occasioned by the use of low bandwidth connectivity. For some regions, internet connectivity may not exist at all. Bloggers living in such regions will often struggle with this challenge. It is important to point out that though many regions are adopting the use of fiber optic internet connectivity, the impacts of this adoption may take time for the benefits to trickle down to personal bloggers who do not enjoy the advantages of internet connectivity at work places, schools or at home.

In the recent past, changing government policy has negatively affected web blogging. A case is in point is the recent people driven revolution that occurred in Egypt resulting in the ousting of the long serving president of that country. Taking into account how blogging and the use of online social Medias contributed to he success of that revolution in Egypt and Tunisia, many leaderships especially those in the Arab states have restricted the use of blogging and other online social media in an attempt to avert mass actions coordinated using such Medias. A similar situation occurred during the aftermath of the disputed Iranian and Kenyan elections sometimes back.

Cost is another challenge that affects blogging today. In some places, the initial cost of getting internet connectivity is prohibitive to many. As a result, some bloggers have resulted to use of the available options including the use of mobile handsets to blog. Finally, bloggers are finding themselves writing for other blogs. This is a challenge on its own.




Tips For Generating Traffic For A Blog

Thursday 11 August 2011 @ 11:21 am

Many bloggers are usually concerned by the traffic generated by their blog posts. This applies to both the experienced and the less experienced bloggers. This concern is founded on the fact that if a blog does not have many visitors, it technically does not have any meaning to the blogger or those who pay for the blog to exist. Here are some tips that can be used to increase traffic to a certain blog.

Bloggers should be keen on the kind of titles they assigned to their blog post. A good blog post title should be one that catches the attention of the audience easily. This is because the average time spent by many people on a particular page on the internet is not long. Bloggers should use their knowledge of the contemporary situations to come up with attractive titles. It is of great benefit for the blogger to do their blog writing when they are able to concentrate well; in situations where blog writing is done under duress and distracting situations, the blogger may fail to come up with a catchy title for the BlogSpot.

Bloggers should also be keen to draw attention to their articles by making their articles highly visible. There are creative and innovative ways for doing this; for example, by making the headings bold, using a large font size or using a font style that makes the headings visible. Caution should however be taken to avoid exaggeration as this can be repulsive to potential visitors to the blog.

Additionally, bloggers can use short lists instead of lengthy descriptions in order to save space. Another useful thing to do is to write the Blog using simple language, so avoid jargon words. The paragraphs should be concise but informative to the audience. Enhance your post using images, video or audio messages; this can be linked to other social media platforms.
