Blah Blog . . . Pretty Post

Looking at the previous post, I realized I’d forgotten to “pretty” it up a bit (add some zip, as it were).  The ideas were there . . . and that’s where they remained.  There.  Alas, memory being what it is these days (leaning toward n-i-l), I’d neglected to add a couple of things I’d fully intended to.  <sigh>

That seemed worth posting about: having a blah blog due to a lack of pretty posts (bad memory issues later).  And just what makes a blog blah, as in b-o-r-i-n-g?  Lack of good/interesting content for one.  Sure, most topics have likely been written about (countless times), but that doesn’t mean it has to be dull.  Consider who it’s being for.  Then, speak to that audience.

Make sure headings/titles are to-the-point and “captivating”; pull in (attract) readers.

Give the post a distinctive spin.  Add humor.  Insert commentaries/opinions.  Provide pep.  And, perhaps most importantly, make it sound like you.  Unique!

heart-shockedPics/images make for happy eyes; they can prompt people to peruse the post.  If it’s a short post, there likely won’t be a need to add more than a pic—it depends on the subject—but if it’s long, break it up here and there.  GIFs are great, if not fun, but don’t throw them in for the sake of it.

Some color never hurts.  Spice it up a little.  Maybe those colors are ones that will help define/identify your blog and, subsequently, you.

Again, depending on the subject, add statistics, quotes, examples, or back-up data.  Don’t simply “plop” them in, though.  Make sure they are relevant and that the information/post flows well.

<LOL>  Think I went in a slightly different direction than intended, but it’s all good.  Some food-for-thought . . . and (hopefully) not enough to make any eyes glaze over.

Happy posting.

Author: tylerus

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
