4 Blog changes for the web

To better engage readers I’ve made three changes to the way I blog!

  1. Photos, please
    • Photos tend to grab attention faster than headlines alone and can be a good feature when putting the content on social media as well. I’ve added free use photos or photos of my own to each blog post
  2. More Links! 
    • I’ll be using links to attribute and link to source material. In my most recent blog post, Blogs and cyberspace, oh my, I linked to the original articles my post responded to. Both internal and external links can create depth to the content and better engage the reader
  3. Some Style
    • AP style will be followed except in headlines.
  4. Get creative 
    • Having more creative headlines, and using my own thoughts to better weave in outside material will create a more news writing feel to the posts.
