27 thoughts on “Must-Have Qualities For Your Blog Posts

  1. Kimberly,

    You are right in this point and I agree with you. Quality is the king. Besides in 2014 if you want to get PR you must need to post high quality content. However, here I have learn some new tricks. Thank you.

    1. Yes, indeed! It shows through your post if you are passionate about it. Thank you for stopping by.

  2. I know I’m probably the last blogger on the planet to NOT be on Pinterest (and I just wrote a post about it!) and I think I’m ready to join. I LOVE tweeting and sharing other bloggers posts on FB…now I get to start pinning! Thanks for all the great tips and advice.

    1. I feel like I’m the last blogger NOT active on Instagram. I have a profile but only a few pics. Maybe in 2014. Thanks Allie!

  3. Hi Kimberly

    Great post — I just wish I could migrate to WordPress, for a couple of reasons, but I can’t spend money on the blog and I use Picasa/Google for my photos — that would have to all be redone!

    Please link this post on my December Choral monthly linkup — I think us niche music bloggers need all the help we can get!
    🙂

    1. If you ever do decide to switch to WordPress, Blogelina.com has a great service to transfer it. They offer specials all the time. Your pics, posts, and comments will all transfer over too. Thanks, Holly!

  4. I’m also horrible at sharing posts and pinning. I loathe Pinterest most days and quite often when I’ve shared others’ posts there was little reciprocation. Granted I do things without expectations of anything in return but it does sting quite a bit when you bust your butt and get nothing for your efforts. I have no problem sharing and supporting my fellow bloggers but when they fail to do the same for me (especially when I’m struggling) I lose interest and eventually move on.

    1. In the spirit of Thanksgiving and because we have the same name, allow me to provide an example of someone who will do the same for you. I am following you on Google +, Pinterest, facebook, and have subscribed to your blog posts via e-mail. If my twitter following wasn’t restricted currently (because I’ve followed 2,000+), I’d be following you there as well. I’m breaking the cycle, Kim. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. This is an amazing post, Kimberly! I feel like, since I have been at it myself, just under a year…there is still so much more to learn. I have done all of my trailing and learning from the many amazing posts, just like this one. Thank you so much for sharing on Meandering Mondays! Have a wonderful holiday!

  6. I agree with all of the points, Kimberly. I’d add “make it readable”,as in use clear language, short sentences and paragraphs, bullets, lists, headings, bold and italic to bring emphasis where necessary and make it easier for the reader to get through to the end of the post and not bounce.

    1. I agree with your additions. When I worked in the corporate world, I used those methods with e-mails. Thanks, Alison!

  7. Visiting you from The SITS Girls. Love your post, it has lots of valuable points and very good information. I am a very visual person myself and has seen lots of growth on my blog by making it visually rich, my followers and visitors love it.

  8. I used to be better at sharing posts but lately I haven’t been doing it as much. I need to get better at it though. I primarily share posts on Pinterest and Twitter.

    1. Pinterest and Twitter are my favorite ways to share posts also. Pinterest is great for bookmarking posts that I can go back and read again later. Thank you for stopping by, Allison!

  9. I’m with you on these. I say always add questions. Sometimes I read a post…especially DEEP writers and I don’t know WTF they were talking about. The question would clear that up 🙂

  10. Truthfully, I’m terrible at sharing posts – I try to occasionally but I read, comment if I have anything to say and then leave.
    I did Pin this to my blogging board though – I’m trying to share more!!!
    Great tips for posts – I think I fail at several – oops!!
