This is an easy to read, 16-page guide to choosing the type of blog you want. Keep in mind that this is a transcript of a discussion and so it is not as fluid as a written book, however it is very easy to follow. This ebook is intended for people who are thinking about starting a site but who have already participated in some of the Blogging ABCs lessons, primarily because there are some terms and lingo that you might not be familar with. I think the best advice they give is how to structure your blog to catch readers' attention and keep them on your page.
Choosing what to write about should be so easy, but it can get complicated. Most people that I meet who want to blog have an idea of what they want to write about, but when they go to get started, that idea either doesn't support a blog or they find themselves limited by their idea. That's sort of what a niche blog will do.
I write two niche blogs, one about photography and one about building a blog. Although I can step about 5 feet off my topic (sharing stories about our dogs), I can't go to far, because people read my blog for a specific reason. But that doesn't mean that YOU have to write a niche blog. You can go for a general blog, sharing all kinds of topics - even setting up your navigation bar to direct people to the things you love.
If you're going back and forth wondering if you should write about a specific subject (a niche blog) or if it's better to have more general thoughts (a general blog) then I have a wonderful eBook that will help.
I learned so much from Choosing the Scope and Structure of Your Blog and I'm excited to recommend it to you. Tricia Meyer, Deborah Carney and Liz Fogg share their thoughts and experience with both general and niche blogging and I learned the following:
It's easy to get traffic to a more targeted site (niche blog) than it is to a general site.
With a niche blog, you may only be able to work with a small amount of targeted brands; however, with a general blog, you may be tempted to go overboard on the advertising, overwhelming your audience.
With a general blog, you'll have one link on your business card; with niche blogging, you may have a list that you 're sharing when someone asks "what do you blog about?"
For $0.99, this is a fantastic investment for everyone who is interested in and/or passionate about blogging. I highly recommend this eBook if your interesting in learning more about general and niche blogging.
Kimberly, Adventures in Blogging, [...]
The first part deals with whether your blog should be blog specific. It delves into such questions whether you want to be tied down to writing about one specific topic or do you want a broader base?
The second part is all about structuring your blog. Basically it is about what blogging platform and structure you use. Any follower of this blog from the beginning knows that this blog has gone through some changes- design and idea wise. I have even toyed with the idea of buying my own domain. Still not sure if I am ready to make that leap yet? But after reading this portion I am thinking new year new look.
This book gave me a lot to think about in what I want from my blog in the upcoming year and in the years to come. If you are questioning anything about your blog this would be a great resource to have on hand.
