Tech blogs? Have you ever heard of them? Well if you are in Silicon Valley or in the tech industry, I am sure you have been exposed to them. In fact maybe over exposed. Technology is probably a favorite topic to a lot of people, especially so in this digital age. But if you really want to stand out of the crowd, here are some tips to help you getting started.
Tip One – Passion comes first
Yup, this is probably the biggest factor. You are going to write content and tons of them. It will definitely help you if you love what you will write about. Technology is a vast field, and you can write about apps, mobile phones, future tech and the list can go on. Choose the topic of your passion.
Tip Two – Be Different
Okay, so now that you have chosen your favorite topic, it does not mean that you grab your laptop and start writing away. Make sure that the content is different. There are enough and more people who write blogs about tech, how can you be different from others? Why would someone want to come to your website to read your blog? These are the questions that you need to answer. Better still, if you choose a topic that is niche or upcoming/trending, you are bound to have more eyeballs.
Tip Three – Look Around
Why would you have to do that? Well, it always helps when you look at other people who have been successful in writing blogs. See their style, learn what worked for them and what keeps them going. Especially for tech, you will not have a dearth of inspiration. From Techcrunch, which is an all news and updates on the latest tech products to startups. To Appleinsider, a blog on all the inside scoop on Apple you will be needing to have enough and many examples to look at.
Tip Four – Make Blogging a Part of your Life
If you try and fit blogging into your everyday life, you might just not be able to do it. Rather, make sure that instead fitting it, make it your everyday activity.
Tip Five – Write, Write and Write
Keep on it. Perseverance pays with time. Like Mr. Bill Belew, he mentioned in many of his classes and blogs, “You got to be at it”. Quality and quantity are both very important in the criteria.
