5 Unusual and Weird Blogging Tips to Drive Traffic


All yapping set aside, blogging is just the right thing to do for every person, business, entrepreneur, geek, nerd whatever you name it. Blogs today are flooded with blogging tips and how tos’ of blogging. And here I am doing nothing different but sharing a funny thought which just alarmed my mind and I made it a different perspective towards the idea of blogging. Everyday someone is trying to prove their instincts as new blogging tips and that’s what should happen because originality is what blogging justifies. I believe that this perspective should work for any type and category of Blogs, like technology, personal, news, fashion, lifestyle etc. Let’s have a look what winky tips I have for all of the Eager Beavers…

Be Originally Weird

What makes you a blogger? Ask this question to yourself. Dig the weirdest and funniest aspects of your blogger soul. Give those thoughts a perfect packaging so that it looks more presentable, striking and saleable. I am not provoking or inspiring to forget your social responsibility but you can make a strong point even by being weird. For example, If I wanna write about Google Glass I’ll first try to tap other facts like “Camera has found a new home…but does it promote taking pictures without acknowledging it to the one being captured?

Cut The Crap; Blog To Earn

Definitely!! It’s not a crime to leverage your thoughts, opinions and writing skills to earn online. This completely makes sense, otherwise why would you do it? For social welfare, hobby or just to spread information? But this can also be achieved with earning money, don’t you think. Of course you may be doing it just for name and fame but it occurred to many bloggers that earning money by blogging will eventually make you famous but only by ethical means. There are other illegal or unethical people who blog just to earn no matter how much dirt they are spreading. I just want to make a simple point that anyone can accomplish their desire of blogging with earning extra bucks.

Controversy is mean; maybe you need it

Controversy is a trend with a long history. Implementing controversial opinions in your blog post can create a buzz on your Blog and bring loads of traffic. How? Take any topic, pull it’s weakest and strongest strings and create a debatable post where people will come and participate in a healthy (whatever) debate, share their opinion and prove their point. All you need to remember is it is you who created this post and you control it and hence you are the decision maker of what to and what not to include. Don’t be bias and listen to everyone who is visiting and sharing on your blog and reply accordingly again keeping the debate alive for a long time.

Leverage Social Media To Ignite Debate

Whatever topic you are going to focus, research it properly dig every bit about it and then Ignite a debate on your social media page/account. Make it intriguing enough for people to make them feel the urge to talk about and know more about your chosen subject category. We all know that social media is the champion of bringing traffic competition and should be used strategically. Ask questions, generate a controversial aspect of it and see people discussing and eventually landing on your blog to carry the debate forward to prove their point.

Show them You Live On Your Blog

The best way to show people that Your Blog is your home and you care alot about people across the world who really wanna read your posts, you should incorporate the idea of submitting articles even when you are not available, like while you are sleeping. You just need to schedule your ready posts to be submitted at certain intervals. This will bring more likes, comments and traffic. More your presence felt online more people will visit you to applaud your efforts.
