A blog can be one of the best avenues for you to express your experiences with building or living in tiny houses, but at the same time you want to make sure that you can draw in visitors who will actually read what you have to say, right?
To help you along, here are five tips for running a successful blog on your tiny house experiences:
- Select What You Want To Focus On
Try to envision how you see your tiny house blog when it’s finished. Do you want it to be a documentation of how you built a tiny house, a site discussing tiny house issues, or simply a collection of funny or unique real-life stories about you living in a tiny house? Will your blog focus more on writing or will it be more image based?
Only you get to decide what to write about or what kind of content you want to produce, but it’s important that you think hard about it because it’s easily the biggest decision about your blog that you’ll make.
- Pick A Witty Domain Name
If you visit any one of the popular tiny house blogs out right now, you should notice that they all have one thing in common: they each have a clever and unique domain name.
Your domain name needs to adequately describe your blog while doing so in a way that is not generic or broad. In addition, avoid the use of long words, hyphens, or numbers in your domain name.
- Choose a Compelling Theme
Something else you should notice about the most popular tiny house blogs is they each have a unique theme. When you use a blogging platform like WordPress, you’ll be given a number of free basic themes to choose from.
While each of these will technically work, if you really want your tiny house blog to stand out you would be wiser to instead invest your money in a paid theme that is more customizable so you can design it to your specifications. You’ll also want to choose a theme that is friendly to advertisements and mobile devices.
- Fill Out Each Post
Every post you make for your blog will need to have specific details filled out for it to truly be professional.
These details include the title, a category (so your blog posts can be grouped together under different categories for ease of site navigation), tags (for search engines to more efficiently categorize it), the written post itself (which must be free of any spelling or grammatical errors), and a featured image that serves as the cover of that particular post.
- Don’t Forget About SEO
In the end, how successful your tiny house blog ends up being will be directly tied to your performance as an SEO marketer. An SEO site analysis checker will be an excellent tool to have because it tells you any SEO errors you need to fix, which keywords people are using to find your blog, and the overall strength of your SEO campaign.
Sharing Your Experiences
The nice thing about running a blog is the posts you write will last forever, so not only do you get to share your experiences with the world, but you also will get to look back yourself on those experiences at any point in the future.
