What Will Separate Your Blog or Pumpkin From Another?
What separates one blog or pumpkin from another?
The past few weeks I have been reading lots of blogs and after a while they all seemed to look alike. I had been to the market and took a picture of these pumpkins because it seemed so early to have them out and ready for sale. They all looked alike too and if I was going to purchase one would not be able to decide which one to choose. It was the same for the blogs I had visited. Which blog do I comment one? Which blog do I share?
I thought maybe by labeling the pumpkins with letters it would make a difference. What can we do to make our blogs look different?
Here are some ways you may get creative with your blog:
- Take your own pictures – Always carry your phone or camera because as you see above you may never know what will catch you eye and turn into a post. People love images and are drawn to them on posts.
- Keep an eye out on the news – Yesterday word broke about GoDaddy and Jan quickly turned it into a post – I assume his blog did not go down It may not be the most original – although Jan’s always is, but it will get comments if it’s one of the first on a news story.

- White Space – Please use white space – How many times have I visited a blog and everything is clumped together with no white space or images? I do not stay around long enough to read it – never mind to comment. Sometimes not even the reading glasses can help.
- An Inviting Headline - Some thing that draws others in. Others who are great at this draw people right into their blog. When they share on social media sites it draws more attention.
- Creativity – To make those pumpkins look different from one another you could get creative with cloth and markers to make them look really unique. A few years ago I had bought a New England Patriots Pumpkin. Wish I knew where that picture was now. Seems every year people are getting more creative with their pumpkins.
