Believe it or not, but creativity doesn’t come naturally to all of us. If you’re low in agreeableness and high in conscientiousness you’re more likely to be creative in a way that is more philosophical and has a need to challenge but also respect fundamentals. If you’re the opposite, you’re much more likely to be creative just for the sake of being creative. It’s harder to be the first kind of person that it is the latter. It’s the struggle that many people go through and for a blogger, this comes out in the form of hitting into writer’s block. But what if you had a creative message, one that was consistent and gave you a lifeline to hold onto when the waves got a bit choppy in the blogosphere? What is a creative message in the first place? It’s something that pertains to a brand, that is top-down and seeks to implement strategies designed to work together with your business manifesto. In layman’s terms, creative ways of expressing your business goals and ambitions. Does your blog have a creative message?
Have A Personality
This may seem obvious but it needs to be hammered home. As a blogger the main selling point of your blog is its uniqueness. Even if the design is truly one of a kind, it doesn’t matter if you’re writing is not honest. Don’t make an effort to walk across a tightrope and try to please everyone. Be honest and when you review products and services, do so as you would for a family member or friend. Give your honest unabated opinion and state both the good and bad. It’s understandable that sometimes you may want to be neutral for fear of not being contacted by a sponsor or company again because you gave them a review that wasn’t favorable, but they are not your main income source. In truth, it’s the readers that keep coming back for your honesty that will always give you the ability to earn money from your blog. Advertisers will want to maintain a healthy relationship with you if your reader count is consistently high anyway.
