Not using headers
No matter, how amazing and interesting your content is, if your blog post looks like a scary wall of text, no one is going to read it. Don’t just write continuously, gives some anchor points (headings) to reader’s eyes. Break your content into paragraphs after 4-5 sentences maximum and each sentence under 30 words.
Not using images
A good image is better than 1000 words. If you want readers to stick with your content, adding images is a good choice. Try to add high-quality images that are not only attractive but also explain what you are trying to say.
Not friendly with social media
Social media plays an important role in spreading thoughts among the readers. It is an important tool, especially for bloggers. If you want to reach a wider audience, you have to use social media. It can make your job easy. With the help of social sharing buttons, you can widen your social reach by allowing readers to share your content with their network.
Don’t forget, sharing count builds trust on new readers.
Not replying to comments
When a reader reads your post, he may leave some queries or suggestions for you in the comment box. Don’t ignore these comments. If they are adding any valuable point or raising any question, you need to respond. Even if they are wrong, respect their thought and come up with a positive answer.
Not showing recent post
Sometimes readers judge you by knowing the quality of your previous content. So, always shows them your best post. Put your recent post at sidebar.
