Daily Productive Sharing 035 - 十年博客的总结

One helpful tip per day:)

(The English version follows)

今天推荐的是 Everything I've learned in 10 years of Blogging,作者从08年就开设了这一 blog,并且一直坚持下来。下面是他的总结:

  • No one has time to read your article, write the first lines like they're a TLDR.
  • The design of your site is irrelevant.
  • To start out you don't need any software.
  • Define your audience.
  • Figure out where your audience is.
  • For SEO don't write short articles (>2000 words)
  • One well researched article is better than a lot of mediocre content
  • Spend half of the time writing, half promoting.
  • Spend 50% of the writing time actually writing, the rest tweaking, reading and illustrating. Details are important.
  • Spill all your secrets. Don't be worried about the fact that you'll run out of content, you won't.
  • There are no rules, slowly craft your unique style.
  • Go back in your old posts and link them to newer ones.
  • Start a Newsletter.
  • Do what everyone else is afraid to do.
  • Reach out to people asking for things or offering tips.

对照着这份清单,我们评估了一下自己的 blog 做到了哪些:

  • No one has time to read your article, write the first lines like they're a TLDR.

    • 这点做得还不够好,基本上草稿一写完,自己读一遍就发了,今后需要进一步打磨

  • Spill all your secrets. Don't be worried about the fact that you'll run out of content, you won't.

  • There are no rules, slowly craft your unique style.

    • 这点还在琢磨中
