When I decided to switch to a new blog and start everything from scratch, I also made another decision along with it. You see, most bloggers today argue about the frequency of post publishing. Now, there is no answer to this question. It depends upon the blog, the blog writer and his/her blogging style. The decision I made was that I would just write my posts as I like (but, I will still write at least 4-5 articles per month; so far I have not been able to do so since I was busy with all sorts of stuff; I am just getting back to the usual blogging routine).So, with this blog, I won’t be writing articles just for the sake of articles. I will only publish articles that I think, will be helpful to my readers (And that teaches my readers through action). I realized that, blogging and teaching through action is the best way to help your readers while helping yourself. In this blog post, we will take a look at how we can teach through action (whether in real life or in blogging).
Blogging and Teaching Through Action?
Basically, what you have to do is instead of just giving “awesome” techniques to your readers (to get their blog popular), give evidence/proof along with it. I mean proof that the techniques works now [techniques get old as time passes; their effectiveness decreases]. Let me give you an example. In my last blog post about twitter networking and networking strategies, I included the screen shots of me using those techniques in my twitter account. Well, I can’t really claim that the post clicked since I didn’t have much visitors and comments yet (because this blog is brand new, and I haven’t done much marketing).
Well, I know that it will work, if used appropriately because it has worked (for me) in real life. Now, I will just give you a simpler illustration to think about:
Let’s imagine a class room. Wouldn’t it be easier for the students to understand the material if they were taught through “action”. Imagine yourself as a student in that class room. Would it be easy for you? Would it be easy for you to understand plant anatomy if the teacher allows you to bring plant along and cut it open in class while studying?
The answer is Yes, it would. You know, this is a simple principle, used by a lot of folks everyday. All we need to do is take this technique, tweak it a bit and apply it to our own blog.
Tweaking differs based on your blogging style and blogging niche. If you blog about making money online, you could show them step by step – what you did – and the results – what you achieved. But, beware. Making Money Online is a big field where many scams occur (and many of these scams do provide us with “proof” that they make money). So, when you do explain to your readers, try to be different and provide an evidence that is simple and understandable.
Well, that’s it. That’s all I have to say. This was a much shorter post. But, I really enjoyed writing it (because it was in a rather unusual format for my blog posts; I usually write my posts in a format, but this post doesn’t fit to any of my earlier formats).
Thanks for reading, by the way. If you enjoyed the post, please do leave a comment and encourage me to write more [and better] posts. If you don’t like it, just tell me why you don’t. Don’t forget to share the post with your friends (share only if you find this post useful and informational). 😀
