DO’S & DON’TS OF POSTING

  • Do use KEYWORDS in your Title, Tags and Headings to be easily found searches online.
  • Do base your posts with a good CATEGORY structure to make it easy to find content for a particular topic.
  • Do put PARAGRAPHS and sub-ideas. It’s not entertaining to read one block of manuscript. Digest it into pieces.
  • Do create MUTUAL COMMUNICATIONS between you and your readers. Answer queries without leaving your readers hanging for an answer.
  • Do make your article as SIMPLE and as UNDERSTANDABLE as possible. Avoid beating around the bush. Not unless you wanted to captivate your readers with your literary prowess. Write like your talking to a friend.
  • Do RESPECT your reader’s opinions. That’s the essence of being a blogger. Accept truths. Do away with the insults.

  • Don’t go against our policies & guidelines. Respect our terms and standards for the integrity of the community.
  • Don’t ignore the quality of your content. Be specific with posting information.
  • Don’t provoke fights. Sometimes comments can be a pain. And sometimes, none of it is true. Let it go and don’t waste your energy.
  • Don’t waste a post with inappropriate details that would just confuse your audience.
  • Don’t copy the works of others. They might sue you for plagiarism for this. Produce something original. Imitations trigger criticisms.
  • Don’t be afraid to advertise. It’s one way to make your blog famous among the masses.
  • Don’t attack individuals, companies or fellow bloggers. Show respect. If you disagree with an opinion, tell it with caution.
