Some tips on creating a useful blog for beginners

1) Blog post title should be self explanatory

2) Use categories and tags for better navigation

3) Use a theme which attracts not distracts

4) Simple language in blog writing works best

5) Useful blogs get more traffic than autobiographical blogs. Unless you are a celebrity.

6) People who enjoy writing blogs create better blogs

7) Writing a blog  is like jogging. Do it every day , even when its boring and painful. or Do it as much as your schedule permits.
