Want to stand out from the crowd? In blogging, just like many other areas, it is great to stand out from all the rest. I’m sure you can find thousands of blogs about fitness, yoga, cooking or any other area of interest you may have. Since the Internet allows anyone to post their thoughts and ideas, it can be easier to find information, but harder to select the best!
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
This fact shouldn’t scare you away from blogging. It should just inspire you to be different! Most bloggers will scan articles or read only for a minute or so before deciding if they are going to keep reading. This means you must do something unique and different to draw them in!
Ways to be Different
Visuals go a long way. They are one of the most popular ways to grab attention. Match it to your logo, your name, your image, whatever. Have something that represents you and your blog and you can be sure people will remember you and link the two together.
Experiment with your titles. You should know by now that these are also a way to grab attention. If humorous titles work, go with that. If straight-forward listing seems to be working, try that. Find out which works best for your audience and which distinguishes you from the rest.
A picture says a lot. An amazing picture can say even more. Use your creativity with your pictures. Invest in a new camera and spend the time learning about how to shoot the best pictures and angles. For people who don’t like to read every detail of a blog, pictures can draw them in again and again.
A Test for the Best
The best way to be the best is to learn from the best. Go to the most popular blogs and study them. What makes them stand out? Why are they so unique? Bottom line is to be original!
