Master WordPress; A great idea is no longer enough

by WordPress Master Michael on November 10, 2010

Because there are so many blogs and web sites on the web these days, it can be tough to distinguish your site from all of the other noise.

Whether you are starting up a new web site aimed at bloggers or whether you are looking to make your existing blogging site more distinctive, the key to building and maintaining a site that will capture the interest and attention of the blogging community is finding your niche. If you can fill a unique need in a way that no other web site does, you’ll be able to build a lasting readership among web surfers. Once you have discovered a niche, you will still have a lot to do, but finding your place in the blogosphere is the place to begin.

Every great blog starts with a great idea, and you can’t build a successful site that will last without one.There are many great sites aimed at today’s bloggers, and competition for the attention of this growing demographic is fierce. if you want to make your blog stand out from the pack, you will have to offer something that no one else is offering, or you will need to do the same thing that an already popular site does but in a more impressive or
valuable way.

One way to discover the ideal model for your blog is to look at the sites that have successfully captured an audience already to determine if you can use  some of their strategies on your own blog.

Of course, you will also need to add a unique flair to your project in order to stand apart from your competition.

Many people agree that the web sites that do the best in today’s market are the ones that have the most personality. The fiercely individual surfers who are bloggers are a demographic that responds especially strongly to personality, so consider how you can give your site a unique and attractive feeling by injecting your own voice and sensibility to your site’s design and content.

Once you have a great idea for your site, have pinpointed a special niche that you are well equipped to fill, and have infused the site with personality, the next step is figuring out how to spread the word about your blog.

In the long run, a great idea just isn’t enough to propel your blog to success. You will need to draft a smart and realistic marketing plan in order to draw readers to your site. Once you hook a reader, your great content will keep them coming back, but it is vital to get that first glance or your site won’t have a chance to shine.
