Top 10 Blog Writing Tips

Have you thought about starting a blog? If not, think again. There's a lot that a blog can do for you--create exposure, build readership, develop your technical skills.

But even more importantly, blogging makes you a better writer. It's like piano scales. The more you practice, the better you get.



Here are a few tips from Website 101 to keep in mind for your soon-to-be-created blog:

1) Write with the reader in mind.

2) Make it valuable and worthwhile.

3) Proof-read!

4) KISS. Keep it short and simple.

5) Keep it lively, make it snappy and snazzy.

6) Link to other sites. Often.

7) Use keywords often.

8) Write clearly.

9) Write like you talk.

10) Use a clear headline.
