Blogging for the first time can be frustrating because there are so many contents to read on the Internet and trying to compete with each other. As the Internet becomes more saturated, the thought of how you compete against billions of other blogs can be discouraging the truth is at least 80% of these contents on the Internet offer little value or no value to their readers. This should give you an excellent chance of succeeding by creating superior content though it would demand a huge investment of your time, the rewards will follow.
I will be sharing some pieces you need to engage readers, increase your social shares and drive conversions.
CONTENTS NEEDED FOR BLOG ARTICLES

The best blog post which attracts a high number of clicks are usually the ones that start with the “How to” or number solutions such as “ the top 3 ways to”… this is because the readers learn something specific from it and it also teaches them to ( Do It Yourself).
