Have you ever had that experience when you’re talking to someone and then after a while you realise you’ve tuned out? It’s not that you don’t want to listen to them, it’s just that you’re hearing the same thing again and again, or their voice just isn’t that interesting anymore. If you’ve noticed your blog numbers stagnating then maybe you’re the person people are tuning out.
There are all sorts of things that can make you seem boring to your readers, maybe your headlines need a make-over, or you need to offer a variety of post lengths (short, medium, and long), or you just need more images on your blog!
Have a look at what was happening on your blog 2 months ago, and what’s happening now. What’s the difference?
For some of you there is no difference – and that’s the problem. If your content is always the same then your readers will get bored with it, try adding related content. If you write a blog about playing baseball then you can expand to equipment, players, matches, and even other sports useful for training you for baseball, foods to help you get in shape, etc.
If you’re stuck for content ideas then try asking your readers, if they don’t usually comment on your blog then ask on social media (Twitter and Facebook work best for this I’ve found).
There are some things you can do to liven up your blog:
Try a new theme.
Try a different post length.
Offer discussion topics instead of read only content.
