Most people who read blog posts would prefer to read content that is of a high quality (Blog posts that are well-written keeps the reader coming back for more).
Therefore, the wise thing for all bloggers to do is for them to maintain a high standard of blogging.
Newcomers to blogging might find themselves intimidated by the thought of maintaining a high blogging standard (I want them to know that goal is an attainable one; it is not something that is impossible for them to achieve).
So, without further ado, it is time for me to teach you how you can go about maintaining a high standard of blogging.
1.) By Becoming An Expert In Your Chosen Niche
Dear friend, your blog post will stand out in the blogosphere if the information within it is thorough, accurate and up-to-date (The more that you know about your chosen niche, the better).
Blogs that have a higher level of E–A–T (Expertise, Authoritativeness and Trustworthiness) are ranked higher on Google.
Hey, if you are not an expert, you can work towards becoming one.
Never underestimate the power that E–A-T has (Working on building it will help in the area of maintaining a high standard of blogging).
2.) By Making The Proofreading Process One Of Your Main Priorities
A lot of the newcomers to blogging tend to ignore the proofreading process; this opens the proverbial gateway for typographical and grammatical errors (Those things can make the blogger appear sloppy, noncaring and unprofessional).
Dear friend, the whole purpose of proofreading your blog posts is to make sure that they are devoid of any errors.
The Writing Center’s, Tips For Effective Proofreading, is a great reference guide for any blogger who is serious about the proofreading process.
Proofreading your blog posts before pressing the Publish button, will help greatly in the area of maintaining a high standard of blogging.
3.) By Making Sure That Your Team Of Writers Is Fully Committed To Creating Quality Content
Your team of writers needs to be on the same figurative page as you; they need to be fully committed to creating quality content.
Quality content is the type of content that:
- Is free of errors.
- Addresses the subject matter.
- Is evergreen.
- Is insightful and useful to the reader.
- Is well-written.
- Is up-to-date.
- Is based on credible information.
- Links to other pages on your website.
- Is unique and original.
Everyone on your team of writers can do their part in maintaining a high standard of blogging by implementing the things that were mentioned on the list.
4.) By Keeping The Promises That You Made To Your Viewing Audience
Dear friend, you will lose your credibility if you fail to keep the promises that you made to your viewing audience; for example, if you promised them that you are going to publish a book review series, you will need to follow through.
What you can do is to write seven book reviews in advance (they can be stored safely in the Drafts section of your blog or on your USB flash drive) and then announce to your viewing audience that you will be starting a new book review series (The seven blog posts that were done in advance should provide you with enough time to create other book reviews and publish them in a timely manner).
Bloggers should never promise things that they are unable to deliver.
Keeping your promises to your readers will certainly help in the area of maintaining a high standard of blogging.
5.) By Using High-Quality Images With Your Blog Posts
Well-written blog posts and high-quality images go well together.
Always remember, that no one is fond of seeing blurry or pixilated images.
I would also like to recommend that you compress your images before uploading them to your blog because it reduces the file sizes of your images; I recommend using Squoosh for this because it reduces the file sizes of photos without compromising their quality.
Using high-quality images with your blog posts is another great way of maintaining a high standard of blogging.
6.) By Responding To Comments In A Timely Manner
The truth is that blogging is not only about publishing blog posts; it also involves interacting with your viewing audience and your fellow bloggers via your blog’s commenting section.
Have you ever wondered the reason why my blog receives lots of comments?
The answer is a simple and straightforward one; my blog receives lots of comments because I respond to every comment in a timely manner (People love that sort of thing).
Numerous comments on one’s blog are a great sign of social proof.
Responding to comments in a timely manner also helps in the area of maintaining a high standard of blogging.
7.) By Publishing On A Schedule
Publishing on a schedule helps the blogger to remain consistent with their blogging.
Now, how do you expect to maintain a high standard of blogging if you publish blog posts inconsistently?
Those people who have been following Renard’s World for quite some time can rely on me to deliver high-quality blog posts every Saturday at 1930 Greenwich Mean Time.
I always deliver on time.
What about you?
8.) By Publishing Content That You Would Be Proud To Read Later On
One trick that I like using to maintain my high standard of blogging is to publish blog posts that I would be proud to read later on.
Is that method truly effective?
Yes, because the first reader that I publish content for is myself.
Besides, I would never waste my time by publishing content that I am not pleased with (I am not going to publish a blog post that is going to make me cringe later on).
I always go the extra mile in regards to producing quality content.
As you have learned, it is possible for you to maintain a high standard of blogging; this can be accomplished by doing the following things:
- By becoming an expert in your chosen niche.
- By making the proofreading process one of your main priorities.
- By making sure that your team of writers is fully committed to creating quality content.
- By keeping the promises that you made to your viewing audience.
- By using high-quality images with your blog posts.
- By responding to comments in a timely manner.
- By publishing on a schedule.
- By publishing content that you would be proud to read later on.
