BlogWhat makes a great blog?  Is it Alexa rank?  Is it page rank? Is it how many rss subscribers you have? All of these things can be worked on.  Unfortunately, if you choose the wrong topic to blog about you really can’t change it mid-stream because then you will be off topic and readers really do not like that.

In order to have a truly great blog you only have to do a couple of things. Help your reader and keep them coming back for more.  If you can teach them something, make them laugh or tap into one of their emotions some how then you are off to a great start.  When I started this blog my goal was to share with others what I have learned about blogging. I remember when my my first blog was set up I didn’t even know where to go to access my WordPress dashboard.  So I figured there were people out there in the same boat so I started Start a Blog 101. I made a post on how to log in to your WordPress blog.  Then came another post, then another and now we are off to the races.

Remember, if you find something interesting there is a pretty good chance others will to.  So engage the reader and make them happy that they landed on your blog. Teach them what you know and share your knowledge with them and you will be on your way to a great blog.
