Blogging Today

Though it’s been years since the blogosphere exploded into the mainstream, it’s core function has remained the same.

In its early years, having a blog and posting tones of content was the best way to get your search rankings up. Of course, the internet 10 years ago and the internet today to two totally different things now. But the point stands – blogging is still an effective way of getting found over the internet.

1. Video Content Boom

With video as a means of communication taking over the internet by storm, expect to include at least snippets of videos in your blog. Videos are shown to be more engaging than the traditional words-only post. That being said, having a video isn’t a substitute for great write up. It’s definitely worth taking the time to do both if you can!

2. Make It Easy To Skim

While not really a ‘trend’ in of itself, the attention span of users nowadays are short. Very short. Therefore, its imperative for any blogger to make their content easily skimmable. While dedicated readers of your blog might stay and read through walls of text, the average visitor probably isn’t. They might scroll down to see how big of a post it is and then leave. Not good for your metrics!

3. More Long-Form Content

“Huh? Didn’t you say to make it easy to skim?” I did. But just because it’s easy to skim through doesn’t mean the content as a whole has to be short. Nowadays, users are valuing long-form articles a whole lot more than in previous years.

Long-form blog posts are often packed full of useful and relevant content that aims to stay evergreen after its publishing. This makes the content a reliable source of information that readers can come back to depend upon.

4. Highly Mobile Optimized

Mobile devices have become the number one way we access the internet today. Odds are, your readers are likely visiting you from the convenience of their phone. In fact, 48% of the web pages viewed worldwide come from mobile devices. That alone should get you to optimize your website for mobile!

5. Converse With Your Community

Crafting brilliant long-form content for your audience? Great.

Having your audience read through the whole thing, decide it was an excellent read and then share? Better.

No bothering to respond to your audience when they leave comments? Priceless.

As in the value you lose from not conversing with your audience is priceless. The whole point of building an audience is so you can talk and engage with them!

Through your audience you’ll learn how you can better improve your services or products – or better yet, find out what they want so you can deliver the exact value they need!

So make it a point to respond to the community you’ve taken so long to form. Don’t leave them hanging in silence!
