A new blogger myself (3 months strong!), I am always trying to come up with new ways to engage my readers. So far, my process for content creation has primarily focused on the "what" (as in, "what should I write about?) But, after chatting with Leeyen, I realized that it's also important to consider the "how." Check out Leeyen's great tips below on how you can spice up your blog!
Run a Contest
Feature a Poll or Survey
If you write about fashion, you could feature an item that you were sent, and that would be the prize. The winner would be the person who creates the best outfit around that item, whether a clutch, bracelet, or top. There are always ways to host contests and giveaways that will keep your readers coming back for more!
If you craft your own jewelry, knitwear, or artwork, you can easily set it up so people can purchase them. Donation forms can also easily be placed on your website if you are raising money for a specific cause. However, most people would prefer to donate through a well-known and reputable organization so if you are raising money through your blog you should be sure to offer a lot of information.
