We all know how powerful and popular blogs are today.
(Don’t mind the picture, Mr Seb is only trying to show how gay wizards look like)
In fact, we can find blogs on almost every niche imaginable today compared to 10 years ago when all we get when searching in Google are all corporate websites.
Studies even show that every day, a new blog is created every HALF second which is unimaginably a lot.
Still, creating blog posts isn’t as easy as it looks.
If you have a blog ready at disposal, you must have been familiar with the regular blog postings.
But have you ever wondered why your blog posts don’t seem to be attracting many visitors to read?
You might be losing on a huge traffic potential
Do you use images or videos on your blog posts?
No matter how good your content is, without visuals people won’t be attracted enough to come and have a peek.
Did you know that articles with images gain 94% more views?
I bet my granma’s fake teeth you didn’t!
Also, bear in mind that your website speed and design DO tend to affect the rate of conversion on your blog because when visitors have to wait for your page to load, they get irritated and leave for another website.
To have a clearer picture of how your blog postings should be like, check out this infograph made by QuickSprout.com:
With the rate of blogs being created every day, competition is tighter than ever so it’s best to find out things that can help you gain an edge in the blogging business.
There are many steps that you can take, yes, but if you’re confused as to where to start, I would advise starting with the unique voice part because that voice if what makes your blog different than the rest.
The way you type, the way you speak and present is what makes people remember you better.

This very true images make a site “pop” but some photos actually make a site worse, such as those cheesy stock images. Its best to use hi def/hi quality images.
Thanks for the great post.
Right on Antonio! I agree with you. They are of low quality and don’t have the personal touch we need so I never used Stock photos on my blog as well
