6 Useful Ways to Create an Eye-Catching History Blog

As a student in the online masters in history program at Norwich University, you may want to consider blogging about your experiences in school. A blog is a wonderful way you can start to build up your reputation, your knowledge, and your presence in the community, which can prove to be incredibly helpful after you receive your degree and look to start to your career.

If you’re new to blogging it can be a bit intimidating at first. Blogging is more than just writing a small passage; there is a whole creative process involved. Here are some tips you can use to put together an eye-catching history blog that is sure to get followers.

Think About What You Want to Say

Before you actually start writing anything, it’s important to think about what the blog will be about. What is the message, what do you want to say to people? Setting a direction from the start will help you when it comes to picking content. It also gives visitors a clear picture of what to expect from you. Your “message” should be clear from the get-go so readers know if it’s a blog that they want to follow.

Give Thought to the Design

Depending on the blog platform and web host that you’ve picked, you may be limited in the design. Then again, many web hosts offer templates that you can use and customize to your needs. A template is a great option for people who don’t have experience in blogging and posting content online, as it takes away all of the guesswork.

Remember, the design is just as important as the content in most cases. Content should be well presented, organized, and easy to access.

Add Visuals and Audio

The design is important, but so are visuals and audio. Posting photos and video content can help quite a bit in getting your blog noticed and keeping it relevant. Just be sure to post content that makes sense to your blog and helps to drive home your message.

Give Thought to the Headlines

Pictures and videos capture the attention of people, but so do headlines. Each blog post needs to have an eye-catching headline. Another habit to get into is using links and sub-headlines. All of this helps to attract people. As you write the content, keep in mind that smaller sections of text are more pleasing to the eye than a wall of text. Short paragraphs, bullet points, and lists work especially well in blogs.

Use Social Media to “Advertise”

If you have any social media accounts such as Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, be sure to advertise and link to your blog. This will ensure that your contacts know where to find the blog and they can help to spread the word.

Get Blogging!

Now that we’ve covered the basics it’s time for you to start chronicling your experiences in your online MAH program. Blogs can take a while to catch on, but if you keep up with the tips mentioned then you are sure to see your numbers grow over time.
