Important Strategies for Keeping Your Blog Content Fresh

Writing great blog content is the way to obtain a reader following, but keeping your blog content fresh is the way to keeping your readers interested. If you are looking for ways to liven up your blog, take a look at these seven strategies.

Sometimes Fresh Means Old
It’s easy for us bloggers to lose sight of why we originally started our blog and misplace our identity a bit. Re-visiting some of your old posts can be a great way to reconnect with yourself as a writer and rekindle the passion that fueled your blog to begin with.

Mix It Up
Variety is the spice of blogging. Even though you are writing great blog content, sometimes this can get boring and feel repetitive. Try throwing a vLog or two in there, or sharing a photo album with your audience, or even holding a webinar. You’ll find that mixing it up here and there will peak your followers interests as well as your own.

Be a Goal Setter
Take the time to set new goals that you would like to accomplish through your blog. Make sure the goals are obtainable and precise (as opposed to broad). Working towards different goals will help maintain your passion and will show in your writing.

Invite Guests to Dinner
While your blog should be primarily from one source, you, it’s a good idea to allow a fresh perspective to be given every now and then. Inviting another blogger to write a guest post on your blog is a great way to liven things up a bit and encourage interesting discussions between you and your readers. If you want to take it even a step further, invite a guest blogger that shares views opposite from yours.

New Inspiration
When first starting your blog it was easy to get inspired as all the topics were new and interesting and you had yet to cover them. As time goes on, things can seem a bit mundane and recycled. You might succumb to the ‘Been there, done that’ feeling. This is why it’s important to look in different places for new inspiration. For instance, making new connections and learning what inspires them is a great way to regain your excitement.

Blog Live
Most blogs are written after the fact or the event. A great way to keep things interesting is to blog live from an event pertaining to the subject matter of your blog. Some examples could be:
– If you run a music blog, blog live from a concert
– If you run a gaming blog, blog live from an event like E3
– If you run a tech blog, blog live from a new release event

Your live blog could include video, written posts, and pictures.

Play Reporter
A great way to engage your readers is to interview someone in ‘the biz’, whatever that may be for you. You are guaranteed to have fun conducting an interview and it will provide for a great new read!

Cosplay Blog – Make Money Doing Cosplay And Online Marketing

Okay so you love to cosplay but you don’t really know what the point is to set up a cosplay blog. Or could it be that you already have a cosplay blog but haven’t really thought about making some money with it nor do you even know how? Well it’s really simple. A lot of people out there are already making money with things like a food blog, travel blogs and even a video game blog.

How are they making money? There are many ways and different variations of it but the concepts are very simple. You sell stuff on your cosplay blog. Now that may sound a bit farfetched and you are probably wondering “Oh but what can I possibly sell? I don’t have any products… ”

That is okay. Although a lot of people can potentially sell their own products on their own cosplay blog, there are many other ways to monetize your blog traffic without even selling your own products.

Aside from making your own products or selling your own stuff, there are other ways you can also make money with a cosplay blog. Do you ever wonder how media entities like magazines, TV programmes and even news sites make a lot of money? They make a lot of their revenue through advertising. They present something entertaining or informative and get lots and lots of people to see their content while on the side, they advertise with commercials.

Imagine if you take this concept and use it for a blog? That’s possible in a variety of ways.

One of the very popular ways to do this is through Google Adsense, which borrows this same concept by loading up your blog with all these ads and paying you a little bit from each click. Quite simple isn’t it? A lot of people who run blogs are doing this, but it may take time to generate a lot of traffic to get some decent amount of income.

Another way to monetize a cosplay blog is of course, selling other people’s products while getting paid some sort of commission or referral bonus. This is also known as affiliate marketing. You take a product or service that’s relevant to your audience such as maybe some tailoring, face paint or even costume props and then sell it through your blog even though you don’t manufacture them yourself.

There are other ways such as selling information-based products to go along with your cosplay blog. For example, some tips on making certain costumes or places to buy props or whatever information you would think is of high value and relevant to your audience.

One of the popular things you can post on your cosplay blog is of course, your costume designs and the stuff you’ve worn at certain conventions. Photo shoots and albums are very popular blogging content and easily get a lot of traffic if shared around enough.

You can also post some tutorials on how to do the makeup, the tailoring or even making props or just showcase your weapons and items. A blog is all about what you want to share. It’s that simple.

It’s not hard to start at all. You can use a simple WordPress blog and get started straight away. Then you implement one of the strategies mentioned above and start blogging and cosplaying!
