People’s appetite for novelties is well known. Whether we talk about the latest developments on the political scene, about cultural events, unusual activities or events or celebrity news, each of us wants to be updated as to what is happening around us. Thus, you should consider the opportunity to write on your blog about these things to help bring added value to your writing and acquire more visitors.
On one hand, loyal readers will find on your blog focused information and will not be forced to browse other websites looking for information that they wish to find. They get everything from just one source and this, of course, will save their time. But there is also an opportunity to attract new readers. For this you have to choose very appropriate titles for your articles, using carefully chosen keywords so that search engines list your articles in the top results for related queries. Adding personal considerations at the end of the articles and inviting readers to express their views can generate a very interesting conversation, allowing you to explore the mindset and opinions your readers have. This is valuable information that will help you develop.
Following the above, won’t suffice. You also need to make sure you are always presenting accurate and truthful information to your readers. It is your credibility at stake here, ergo, your reputation. Always document facts thoroughly before publishing! Make sure you verify the news authenticity in at least 3 sources before putting it up.
Don’t copy paste. News are very often flexible when it comes to copyright infringements, but there are moral and ethical obligations involved. Write it in your words and, if your blog’s profile allows it, state your opinion as well. It would be a great sign of appreciation and fairness if you also mention the source. One more thing about copy-paste: duplicate content hurts both your blog and your source’s website SEO-wise.
