What Does It Take To Become A Unique Blogger
It is every blog’s dream to be unique by itself. Having a different blog is a moment of pride for any blogger. But not many are able to fulfill this because currently, everyone is focusing on writing quality content (which is the most important thing for sure), but along with that they’re neglecting basic things which are really essential for any blog to be unique. To be a unique blogger, one does not have to pretend but prove it to self before any other person. Following are a few ways on how one can actually be a unique blogger in a crowded niche.
Don’t Follow The Train – Make A New Track
Here I’m talking about the content on your blog. I’ve personally seen many bloggers taking eating ideas from other fellow bloggers (who are successful of course) and then spitting ‘em out onto their blog. But while spitting, all the extra stuff is changed. This means that those who take ideas from other bloggers often call it an ‘just an idea’, but they actually take all the main points and the uniqueness which that article/page or in fact blog possessed.
The point here asks you to make your own way. Taking some ideas is good, but keeping them as ideas is what makes you wise and unique.
Research For Tools – Like A Sniffer Dog
Tools like what? I’m referring to all the stuff that one uses to set-up the blog and the site. To make it quick and easy, most bloggers often go for stuff which is used by many (in huge numbers). For example, I’m using the Thesis Theme and someone likes my theme. They’ll go buy the theme and get the skin (if I’m using one, though I’m not!). What happens here is that the buyer will try to customize his/her skin exactly the way I have it, hence making a completely new copy just with different content. And if it is the same niche – you know what is going to happen!
So it is advised that to be a unique blogger all by yourself, you need to research a lot on the web. You need to find out some good tools which are not used by many, but yet they’re worth investing into! For example, the theme you’re currently seeing on my blog is used by thousands! Yet mine is totally different than others because I invested in some tools, books etc to learn coding and hence make it the way I wanted it to be.
Have A Different Accent
By accent, I mean to say your way of writing. For example, I directly speak to you while I’m writing. Some often write formally (which is also nice). When we speak about quality content, we also include the way we present it – and presentation skills are always appreciated if they’re unique. Hence, having your own way of writing or speaking (if you’re podcasting of video blogging). This attracts more readers as they’re often looking for unique stuff every now and then.
“Tutorials” Is Not The Limit
I know that to impress the search engines, you need to write ‘helpful’ stuff from which when users land, they take something away. Tutorials are the best seeds to harvest this yield, but that doesn’t mean one has to completely rely on them. One should try writing stuff which he/she personally experienced in their blogging career. This not only adds a personal touch to the articles but also assures the readers that whatever information being passed is not fake.
To be a unique blogger and stand out from the crowd, you have to be yourself. Not only you should focus on writing quality content, but keep it as unique as possible.
