Creating a blog is not too difficult but building an active community around it is. Not everyone is a natural born blogger. It takes time and practice to find and develop your own blogging voice. The tricky part is that it must resonate with your audience and not because you happen to be passionate about smoething. It’s not about you; it’s all about your readers.
I found a very helpful presentation on blogging styles by Rohit Bhargava, a founding member of the pioneering 360 Digital Influence team at Ogilvy and author of the award winning new marketing book, Personality Not Included.
In the slideshow, Rohit shows you 25 different styles of blogging and when to use each one. With each style, he has provided a brief description, frequency of blog posts, ability to go viral (buzz index) and the level of difficulty. There are examples and additional resources too.
It is definitely worth watching and it may just inspire you to find your own blogging style.
