Student Blogging Tips – How to Improve Readership and Blog Traffic

In order for a blog to be successful, it needs to have a strong reader base. Otherwise, there won’t be anyone around to click on the ads or buy the products that are for sale. It is difficult to improve traffic and readership on a blog, but definitely not impossible. It just takes a lot of time and perseverance. Blogging really can bring in a steady stream of income once steady blog traffic has been achieved.

Blog Traffic

Post Blog Content Regularly

One way to improve blog traffic is to post content regularly. People are more likely to subscribe to RSS feeds and bookmark a blog when they see that the blog is updated consistently. Also, people are more likely to link back to the blog and share the posts on social networking sites when there are new things to talk about all the time.

Try to post something new on the blog every day, and if the resources are available, more. The blog posts don’t have to be long either. The most successful blogs have multiple contributors and have new posts three to five times a day. Solo bloggers should try to spread posts out throughout the day for the most blog traffic.

Tips on Writing a Good Speech

There are times in our lives when we need to write a speech. The most obvious time would be when we get married and address the guests. However, there are also other times when we have to do public speaking, perhaps for a job or university work and it is not always easy knowing how to write it well.

Keeping it sounding fairly natural is one of the most important things for speech writing. You do not want to take out your personality as not only will it feel awkward when you give the speech, but it will just not sound like you. Therefore if you are naturally funny, make it funny but if not, then do not try to add in humour. Humour is difficult anyway as everyone finds different things funny and you can risk offending or just not appealing to certain members of the audience. Make sure that you are careful.

Also ensure that you pitch it correctly at a level suitable for your audience. You would speak to a young child differently to your parent, for example, so think about who is there and how you can make your speech interesting for them as well as making sure that everyone will be able to understand it.
