Secret Of Blogging!

For any blog to be success, it needs content. “Content is the king of any blog.” Without content, there are no links. Content is the foundation of traffic. Everything starts with content. You have no content, you don’t have a blog.
So let’s take a look how to make a creative content.

Source Of Content
There are many places and ways to get content. I write all the content for this blog myself and if you’re doing a blog then you should do most of the article like a blog with free articles on it. Many people have asked how to keep up the level of content generation? It’s really not that hard. This is how I go about it.

The Blog Comments
Much of my content ideas come from blog comments. This article is in answer to requests made in the comments of the blog. Producing content this way is really the best because you know this is the content your readers are looking for – you can’t get better targeting than giving the readers what they asked for. Chances are, this article will lead to future articles as readers comment on it.

If you don’t have a reader base yet, then your method of creating content will have to be based on what niche your blog covers. When I wake up in the afternoon, I really don’t have an idea on what I’m going to write about. The first thing I do is read the blog comments, as this is my best source for article ideas. After that, I surf the list of sites in my bookmarks. This is my second biggest source of article ideas. I also get article ideas from magazines and newspapers.

Surfing For Content
When surfing, I’m looking for stories which I think would interest my readers. The object is not to just repost the stories, which would be too easy. I want to put my own spin on it. If I were to just repost a story with a link, I haven’t added any value to it.

Blogging is about adding your personal touch to a story. While sites like nytimes.com just report the story without emotion or opinions, bloggers are expected to get down and dirty with it. Make the content your content. Don’t be afraid to state your views or piss people off. We have the right to say our opinions.
