Not everyone starts out as blogging prodigies; it takes a lot of time and effort to create the perfect blog and gain a lot of audience. For starters, bloggers should research about different blogging platforms and learn about different techniques. They should search for tips that would help them grow and engage with their followers. They should also think deeply about a topic that they are passionate about.
Whatever experience with technology one has, a person should definitely get a hands on experience with blogs. They should create a mock site and play around with different features. There is no better way to learn than actually getting a hands on experience. When I first started blogging, I followed different range of bloggers and learned their techniques. A lot of them used the famous hashtags while others just had a funny sense of humor. It took me a few months to get used to blogging, and eventually I learned a lot of shortcuts that can be taken to create new links or add new media, etc. I am still not the best at blogging, but after constantly blogging for an entire summer, I can say that I’m not that bad at it! It took a while to get used to everything, but blogging is one of the simplest things life has to offer.
Many blogging sites come with easy features that can easily be learned in a few hours to a few days. Nothing can get easier than clicking a button that says, “New Post.” These type of blogging sites will be great for beginners to novices who just want to experience what a blogger’s life feels like. These will be best for those who just want to get their opinions across while reaching out to a certain audience. One does not have to be a big techie for these type of blogs. Tumblr, WordPress, Xanga, Blogger, etc. all are simple blogging sites that just require a few hours of clicking around and learning. There are also tutorials and support forums that anyone can read and contribute to.
For the extremely technological masters, codes are the way to go. I feel like it would be best for these advanced bloggers to create their own site. It would take a bit to get used to, but practice makes perfect! These technology folks are lucky because they know what codes to create to make their blog the best looking. But the easy buttons, for us technologically challenged folks, are our way to making a successful blog. We get to browse through hundreds of themes and choosing the best that will fit our personalities.
No matter what level one’s love for technology is, practice is the way to go. The more one blogs, the better they will get at it. The more one wants to advance in blogging, the more they will look at different blogs, take notes, and learn. Once more time is put into this task, blogging will be a piece of cake. It honestly does not require much technological knowledge to create the best blog. Your content, personality, design, and passion is what creates the perfect blog.
