If you want to succeed in social media in general and blogging in particular, be both friendly and human. In other words, no matter how business-oriented your blog is, it is OK to let you own personality shine every now and then by sharing some personal experiences.
I am a member of an excellent e-marketing tips blog. One of the posts that I was so touched and moved by was one about the author’s feeling after giving birth to his baby boy Sherry Dyson . It was so human, so beautiful and definitely allowed me to connect with the author on a deeper level.
The key is not to “overdo” the personal stuff on the expense of your blog’s core topic. Many people tweet personal experiences but believe that doing the same in their professional blogs would make them sound unprofessional. I beg to differ!
Due to the excellent features of many WordPress plugins, I dedicated two previous articles to discuss some of them in details. Lately, I came across another equally useful plugin – Top Commentator Widget. True to its name, this widget is a sidebar that shows your top commentators.
You can leverage this widget by announcing your own blog commenting game and offering cool rewards to your top 3 commentators. I couldn’t think of a better way to make engage your blog readers in a fun, non-intrusive way.
There are so many more tips to discuss in that regard but based on my personal experience, I assembled the best of the best in this article and the previous one. I hope you find these tips useful and apply all of them for optimal results. To our success!
