Why Creative Writing is a Great Blog Option for 2014

Blogs nowadays provide lists of tips for their audiences to talk about different topics and it relationship to the writer. The writing language indeed affects audiences very much as it could entertain or bore them from reading the post. Creative writing is a great way to improve the quality of the blog because of the following.

1. Internet Audiences Will Likely Want Images
Many internet marketing experts predict 2014 will see a rise in image-oriented blogs such as food or travel photography and narrating facts through infographics. If a traditional blog adopts a creative form of writing similar to a short story while providing great information and citation, they could use the imagination of the audience, which could make the post a compelling read.

2. Audiences Want Substance
Creative writing is full of substance depending on the writer. While it may take some time to fill up at least 500-750 words on your blog, you could be sure that it has a very high potential to go viral. Substance is subjective, which is why you must know that…

3. It Must Be Related to Culture
Blending a story of a broken aircon to culture might seem absurd, but it is possible. Relating an experience of a friend or by yourself, the author, to the audience regarding a broken aircon and its achievement of saving you much more money in a dwindling economy will compel people, who belong in countries with poor or latent economies, to read your blog and follow your advice.

How to Interact With Your Audience

A blog writer can be very interesting for any kind of reader, but his or her personality directly reflects during discussions about his or her posts. Audience comments and reaction show the quality of articles and blogs the writer provides, but the way he or she reacts reflects the brand, specifically the brand’s knowledge and capability to carry itself. Here are a few ways to ensure your brand and your audiences remain interested in you and your posts.

1. Words
As much as writers are careful with grammar and words in their posts, they should also uphold their writing style as they comment to their readers. Choosing the right adjectives and analogies in explaining things is important.

2. Emotion
When replying, only stick to the facts presented by your commenter and you. Never let emotion drive you when people challenge your article’s facts, sources and claims. Emotions reflect badly in internet discussions simply because people are looking for reliable information when using the internet in the first place.

3. Acknowledging Your Error
If you have a source that points the wrong way, or if your article is entirely unreliable in a worst-case scenario, always address your error. It is important for readers, researchers and any person to realise their errors as it helps you gain respect for properly accepting self-criticism and public criticism.
