Business Blogging - How To Always Have Fresh New Content For Your Blog

By Connie Ragen Green

Blogging has become one of the best ways to communicate with the people who are interested in your niche topic. A blog is a website that consists of posts, arranged in reverse chronological order. People can comment on your posts, and you can provide fresh new content on a regular basis.

When I first started blogging I made sure to post something new every single day. As time went on I slipped into only posting a few times each week, and my visitor count went down very quickly. In an effort to revive my blog I started holding blogging challenges, inviting others to also post every day for a month. At the end of the month I would then put their name and the name of their site in one of my posts, giving recognition to everyone involved.

There are so many ways to get ideas for what to post about. You can review books on your niche topic, and write about the author and the most important points made in their book. Many times those authors have A Google alert set up for their name and the name of their book, so they are likely to see what you have written and come over to comment on your blog post.

You can also get many good ideas for things to write about simply by reading other blogs on your topic. Just Google for your topic and you will see what else people are writing about. You may be amazed at how much information is actually available on your topic.

Additionally, you can also visit a site called Technorati, which is the largest blog directory in the world. You will be able to search this site by blog, or by blog post, in order to find out what others are saying. This will give you ideas for your own site. Make sure to include a link from your post back to theirs, so that others will know where you got your information.

Blogging is a way for your prospects to find out more about who you are and what you do. It is your home on the internet, so keeping it updated with fresh information is a way to let visitors see how you represent yourself online. They can also get a feel for what you know and how it can help them to achieve their goals. Blog regularly and you will see your business grow exponentially.
