Blogging Best Practices

Standard

Best practices for blogging tend to be advice about how to write a successful blog.  There are some tips about safety, but they are rather more difficult to find.  For the most part a lot of the same advice about social networking applies to blogging.  If you wouldn’t say it aloud to a bunch of people you don’t know, don’t put it on your blog.  Here is my list of which best practices I found the most useful.

Engage your reader and give them a reason, along with a lot of posts, to return to you.

Don’t be afraid to be personal.  This is one I wouldn’t have necessarily thought of, as anonymity seems to be more safe, but the most engaging blogs I read are the ones that are honestly personal.

Know the purpose of your blog so you know how closely you should maintain it.
