Ways To Gain More From A Good Blog Post
There are millions of results when you search something in the search engines, most of which either have low quality or are irrelevant to what you are looking for. But once you come across that post that proves to be everything you’ve been searching for, don’t just consume the content and disappear; because you can gain more when you stay at the blog and do the following:
i. Follow the links within the post you like
Most articles especially from blogs, have links to other posts in other sites. If a post proves to be good, there is a big chance the links within that post(if any) are equally good; after reading from a post, and you really like it, you can view the links or save the page to view the links later. If you were looking for information in a particular topic, there is a great chance you will get all of it, from the links provided. This will save you time, that you would have wasted searching for other sources.
ii. View the other articles written by the blogger
Since most blogs cover a specific niche: fitness, personal improvement, etc. Expect the other posts, by the blogger, to be related to the one you’ve just enjoyed. Therefore you can get all the information you want on a particular topic let’s say “fitness” just from one blog.
If you got captured by one of the posts from the blog, then expect most (if not all) of the posts to be equally captivating. That’s why you can’t afford to miss other posts from the blogger.
iii. Learn from the author
The best person to learn from, is an expert in a specific field. As you go through the blogger’s articles, seize the opportunity and learn one or two things from the blogger—the things that make him/her stand out, something that you can apply in your own life; it could be the marketing skills, writing style, sense of humor…anything.
iv. Subscribe to the blog’s mail list
Sometimes after viewing all the information you wanted in a particular blog, you forget about it, as you move on to other things. However, if it proved to be that good, then you need to subscribe to the mail list because:
· You will be reminded whenever something new comes up.
· It is an opportunity to socialize with your blogger. You may end up becoming friends or even work together.
v. Share the posts
Any good piece of work deserves sharing with others; you can’t just consume it all by yourself—that would be mean. When you keep such a masterpiece by yourself, you prevent it from reaching as many people as possible; you are preventing the world from receiving what would change people’s life.
Sharing is also a way of appreciating the work of the bloggers. When they are appreciated, they will write more of such quality work…and people will benefit more.
Even though it is not a guarantee that you will gain more when you utilize a good post, most of the posts (if well utilized) will get you a lot of information without having to search for the same information from many other websites or blogs somewhere.
