How To Blog Holistically Is A Free Guide To Blogging

How to blog holistically is a free guide to blogging, written with the blog reader in mind. By making readers happy, bloggers ensure the success of their blog. The authors of the free blogging guide said: "We believe that bloggers should love their readers, at least that applies to serious bloggers who write for an audience and have a message to deliver, not just some time to pass."

Their suggested style-guide includes:

1) (Being) Aware:  know your readers, mission and strengths. Choosing topics, titles and writing accordingly. Write with the jargon, if any, which makes easier for readers to understand; or in plain English, if that makes life easier for readers.

2) Meditating: or at least put the post in prospective. Unless it is a breaking news, wait at least 30 minutes before publishing it. What looks wonderful now, may show several points in need of improvements in just half an hour.

3) (Being) Active: consistency in posting is important. At least once per day. If there are not enough topics to write daily, then one should question the need to have a blog. For irregular pots, better to use articles directories etc.

4) (Being) Respectful: save the mambo-jambo. Go straight to the point, and then add more paragraphs with deeper analysis, if that makes life easier for readers. Also, unless being controversial is the essence of the blog, be correct in your statements, avoid stereotypes etc.

5) Feed your brain properly: you’ll certainly blog on topics you enjoy, so you’ll likely read about them as well. Ensure you read, watch, network, mash-up, etc. with proper sources.
