Smooth Progress of a Blogging Day

Most bloggers have a problem: What will I write today? They are starting their day with an intention to post something into their blogs, not build their knowledge in the niche or read their feed subscriptions. This is really going to affect your blog after some time, because your thirst for post ideas may not always be quenched, and your quick posts may make blog substandard. Here are ways to start a blogging day, which will culminate in one great end-of-the-day post or more.

1. Start Your Day With Your Feeds

Every blogger is expected to have a number of niche and off-niche important blogs subscribed to in his feed reader. There is no alternative to this. Start your day reading these feeds and learning what's new. This will give you an idea of what you can write for the day.

2. Have a Notepad Ready

Always keep a notepad ready to jot down the day's topic ideas. You will automatically generate topic ideas as you continue to read the feeds. You will find different perspectives in different feeds for the same story. This will be beneficial for your research.

3. Jot Down Important Research Points

Make sure you jot down anything you understand from the feeds you read. These points will be useful when you compose your article at the end of the day. It will help you develop your own perspective of the story or a wrap-up of all major factors.

4. Make a List of Links to Check

You should collect a list of links that explain the story further. You can combine this list from the feeds (most of them list links to important resources) or from search engines for search of related keywords.

5. Make a List of Keywords

Since your posts should be well optimized for specific keywords, it pays to have a list of keywords ready. This list will prove to be very useful at the end of the day.

6. Have a List of References to Cite

You may need to cite references. So, you can explain each point well with a link to a related resource as reference. You can make an appropriate list with Wikipedia or any other trusted resource. Once again, remember, links to trusted related resources are good for high search engine ranking.

7. Write That Post

Now that you have a number of topics and resources to learn about them, you can easily create that post of the day. Edit properly and insert your keywords at the optimum level (2–5%). Finally, publish the post.

8. Go to Social Networks and Forums That Deal With This Topic

Now, submit the post to social media like, and discuss the various aspects of it at various forums and social network groups, that discuss this topic. The importance of this may not be seen right away. But the archives are there, which will be found by a reader several weeks from now. If he sees that your post explains the story the best, with links to all important related resources, you can imagine the satisfaction you provided.

9. As a Final Step, Build Some Links

I also suggest that you go and look for DoFollow blogs or directories related to the topic in question and build some links for the post. Though low in number, these links can help rank the page high in search results. Also, you can request links from webmasters dealing with the topic.


Basically that's what you do on any blogging day. If you have any suggestions or comments, post them right away.

Power of Short Sentences

Post dedicated to Thomas Hardy (see History Today below). There are monster sentences like the one you encounter as the first paragraph of Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens . One of my friends, whom I am getting equipped for his IELTS ( what is this? ), told me that the examination recommends long sentences. In writing classes also, I guess it’s longer sentences most tutors promote. But indubitably shorter sentences are more powerful . We will see why. Take a long sentence for instance: Tom Cruise, one of the finest actors in the whole world, is perhaps the most powerful celebrity to exist ever according to Time Magazine, but many people still dispute this fact and point out that there are more powerful and popular actors than Cruise, though they were unsuccessful in providing the total number of fans, who liked the films of those actors. This is a long sentence and it is very confusing . Though it has a logical construction and conveys a meaning, it falters in many occasions and seems

Creative Writing: Crafting Characters With Emotional Appeal in Mind

When you read the greatest fiction works ever, have you ever asked what was so compelling about them that you not only kept reading it, but you ended up reading all other major works of the writer? It may well be because the writer touched your emotional quotient quite a bit. Every reader has a unique taste . Some like to read suspense thrillers , some tender love stories, and some others dark horror and bloodshed stories . That’s why there are all sorts of genres out there. When a writer gives you what exactly you want, you will keep reading. Here we come to the emotional appeal. Character Imperfection Perfect characters may not always be the upshot of a writer’s deliberation. It may well be due to ignorance . Usually the upcoming writers take it for granted that if they create perfect characters, they will be able to garner a bigger audience . It is not true. You have to ask yourself what a character would do in a particular situation. Perfect characters—perfect gunmen, perfect

Another Tiny List of Confusables

Earlier, you may remember we published a list of confusable words . Here we are again, with such a list of words. Abjure/Adjure: Abjure means "to formally renounce (give up) something" such as a position. Adjure on the other hand means 'to appeal to' or 'solemnly order'. The governor decided to abjure his position due to political pressure. Normally, adjuring to the subordinates doesn't give many results. Amount/Number: Use amount when you have uncountable subject. Use number when it is countable. The amount of love one gets depends on the number of friends one has. Appraise/Apprise: Appraise is the word applied to quantitative evaluation of something. Apprise means 'communicate' or 'inform'. Appraising diamonds is the work of an expert. Joe apprised me of the schedule of events. Attorney/Lawyer/Solicitor: These terms are highly misinterpreted and confused by many people. Let me clarify. In the US, an attorney is any member
