Sure, we want higher search rankings for our blog, but that does not mean we can attract users. If we write all our blogs using so-called “SEO” techniques, sometimes it gets gibberish and we are unable to develop a connection with our readers.
I take blogging as a passion, I get frustrated with the lack of success, but that does not hold me back. I write and write day in and day out. Blogging is something I do out of love for writing and helping others.
People always come first when I write, and you can understand that when you read my blogs. If I am finding a trouble with some stuff and find the solution for the problem, than why not share it with other. These post might ease what they are looking for and well there it is. The formula to success in building a great relation with your readers.
Try and solve their problem, see what the audience want write on it. Help them as much as you can with your post.

I am also a reader, I need good stuff. How can blogger write good posts?
Yes, I am also a reader. I developed an idea of making a blog while reading. I am addicted to reading blogs related to my niche. I read many top blogs and some sweet ones that has made Techzane so popular in just 6 months. I know how much I get pissed off with stupid content.
If you are looking to inspire yourself with the art of writing a blog that will make your reader connect, here are some recommendations:
Make it a habit, reading. The more read about your niche at different website and blogs, the more you learn and educate yourself. A learned person can provide information to others more accurately and in a friendly manner. Work hard and never lose faith, try to inspire yourself.
Write on stuff what you love. Develop a sense of humor or a story telling method. Try every possible stuff and don’t ever get discouraged.

If a thousand does not like your post, there is a chance that million others would have a different opinion about your blog posts.
Some basic Guidelines for Good blog post for Readers
Keep it Unique in a different manner
A blog post should be Unique, and from Unique I don’t mean that it should be copy free or duplication free (though that is necessary to keep your blog rising).
All the content in the top and average blogs are somewhat unique. In the sense that they original content but I am not talking about that unique. The Unique word used here, stands for rocking, convincing and fun to read.
How can you make your blog post unique ?
When ever you write a post, give it your own style. I was watching You, Me and Dupree, a Hollywood movie , one day. There was this line, add a “ness” to your name. Yes, “Ness”, Like Yash becomes Yash-ness or Yashness. It had a simple meaning, whatever you do in life add your flavor and style in it.
Seriously it does work. Whenever you are going to write a new blog, add your style. Rather than making the blog sound gibberish, why not make it more interesting by adding your own ways. Apply your knowledge and tips.
Like when you write about “Premium Theme vs Free themes” . There are many posts on this issue and you can certainly not apply much of research in it before writing a post cause it’s all common. Still you can add a little flavor and make it stand better than the rest. When I wrote on this article, I even shared my own tips that applied on themes and today I have visitors flowing in to that page till date.
So, remember add your style to a post and make it unique and stand out to your reader.
Make the post useful and learning
Apart from writing on blogging, I am also an avid Windows 8 user. Time to time I write about Windows 8 and all my Windows 8 post are on the top page of Google search.
How did got to the first page? Well it was not through back links or PPC campaign but because my topics were useful to people who came in looking for those tutorial. These tutorial pages have served me very well and through them I discovered what useful posts are capable of.
When you write posts that are useful to readers, they keep on checking your blog from time to time for new posts and therefore your blogs in a winning situation.
To make a post useful write it with precise knowledge and screenshots for every step and every product. Let the reader know what to do next. If they get stuck, add in your mail address so they can contact directly on your mail and get their problems solved. At the end, it all lies in building relation with your readers.
Make the tips applicable
Usefulness is complimented when the tips and instruction are applicable, people will love your post where the tips are totally applicable by the readers.
Share tips that does not require much work and does not need us to buy any stuff, let those tips work for free. The more practical tips are the more genuinely your blog excels.
