“Content is king” is one of the first things we learn when we start blogging.
But what does it mean?
Does it mean our content needs to be consistently stellar? Or can some of it be “less than”?
When I started blogging I assumed great content meant I had to produce lengthy posts filled with useful or educational information.
Not being a wordy person, I tried, struggled and gave up trying to do that.
Instead, I decided to publish short “lessons” in which I share what I’ve learned.
Is it good content?
Some will say “no”, but that’s not the purpose of this blog. What’s good and useful on this blog is found in the comments. In the words YOU share.
When I visit other blogs, I rate “good content” as meaning I leave a blog thinking about what was shared. Or maybe I have an “ah ha” moment.
I like posts in which you share what you’ve learned in your life travels, where you showcase your creative writing skills or you engage your readers in the comment section.
I like articles that teach me, as well as posts which only contain photographs.
To me, content is good when you, as a blogger, show me a little more about who you are. Or content where I can see life through your eyes.
King size content can be good, but I feel there are also times when a few sentences is just enough.
What say you?
How do you define good content?
What type of content do you find on other blogs that keeps you going back for more?
Care to share?
