Growing a readership is something that takes hard work and a little luck. Sure, sites like Digg and Reddit can greatly expand your readership overnight, but it’s really the way you craft your posts that will help the most with growing your blog. A bangin’ post is worth 10 mediocre ones any day. But unfortunately for most of us, in order to write a great post you have to be a… decent writer.

Becoming a better writer should be every blogger’s goal. Better writers can craft posts in a way that a) get their point across quicker and b) connect with the audience more effectively. No matter what your content, your audience will always benefit from better writing. And if your audience is happy, you’ll be happy too.

The darnedest thing about blog content is that you can have the most amazing post in the world, but if you can’t create mildly decent sentences with proper spelling and grammar, nobody’s going to listen to you

If you’re not a great writer yet, don’t stress. Improving your writing skills comes mostly from practice and reading other great writers. But I've found that the most effective way to improving my blogging has been to just let my posts sit. If I sleep on a post, odds are it will be much better than had I just hit “Publish”. You see, most of the blogging enjoyment comes after the writing is done.

Once you've stopped typing you've only just begun the writing process. Read it through, at least a couple times. Odds are each time you read it through, you’ll pick up on stuff that could be worded better, or explained more, or even taken out completely. Don’t be afraid to let something sit overnight, or even longer. Think of your post as like a cheese that just gets better with age.

You don’t want to let your posts sit too long though. At this point your fine cheese has turned a little too green. I wouldn't recommend letting your posts “percolate” more than a week. Some people can pull it off, but for me I lose interest in the original topic too quickly, and most of my original ideas are gone.

So when you start to craft your next post, let it sit for a bit and see what happens. I guarantee your quality of writing will increase. And if your blog’s quality increases, so will your readership.

I was attending the corporate presentation for a big IT company having the induction presentation for its employees.Being such a reputed company my expectations were certainly high.But it is indeed interesting to know that our corporate lives also teach us so many good things for other professions and hobbies like blogging.

It was a great pleasure to be a part of the induction ceremony but the real fun started when the man started to give presentation about the company details, history, work culture ethics and other particulars.It was always my dream to be a part of the big organisation with such good ethos about its employees.But I was a bit disappointed after the presentation was over.The details were not clearly visible on the PowerPoint slides,too many unnecessary data present and skipping of slides.The speaker himself was not well prepared as it was evident the way he speaking in front of the large crowd with some nervousness.All in all things could have been much better if they really wanted to create a good impression in the minds of people joining the company on their first day.But this experience has certainly become a lesson as to how one should present himself to any reader or audience through his blog.

1.Good organisation
Even if the matter that you write is high class but you do not have the correct presentation then you might suffer badly even after having an extremely good content.Thus good organization is the first stepping stone to success.In case of my above example, I mentioned the disorganisation of content on the slides just took the interest out of the whole presentation.

2.Do not feed too much of information
Referring to my example, there were lots of data present on the slides that the readers were not able to digest easily.too much of facts and figures for a small topic is not needed really if you ask for my opinion.It just creates a bit of confusion in the readers regarding the inter relations of the facts.

3.Try explaining the background accurately and effectively
Even though you may feel that the same content is present on almost very site present in the same niche but still you should try and present a small descriptive background before you reach to the actual matter of the blog.This creates a good impression on the readers that you have in depth knowledge about what your writing and readers will keep coming to your blog.

We have so many things happening around us that can be taken as a lesson,motivation and encouragement to do things better for yourself and for others.Please do not write indigestible stuffs for the audience or just fill up lines only for the sake of writing content.If your post has what those fast scanning eyes of the readers want then you have a fair share of readers to your blog.It is all these small things that make you a class apart from others.



As a reader people always like to read things which are new to them and of course things which they can easily understand and interpret.The blogosphere is having thousands of writers joining it everyday and hence being able to produce a unique content is very difficult nowadays. Things are not the same now and similar content in each category and niche is being produced in huge numbers everyday.

People subscribe to one blog because they liked the unique content and expression on that blog.But if that uniqueness does not remain and the reader is getting same content from 10 different places then he has choose the best and leave 10 others.

Above explained scenario is the most prominent reason why more and more people nowadays are unsubscribing from even professional blogger sites as they are getting bombarded with almost the same content from everywhere. There has to be a way to to control this or most good bloggers will also loose their popularity soon.

One also has to think that how much difficult a writer's job has become.He has to produce an excellent quality content almost every time to keep readers on his blog intact.If you have any comments as to how one would solve this issue then please feel free to discuss in the comments section.



When it comes to blogging it is all about timing, creativity, productivity of content on your blog and proper organization to be successful.

Blogging world is already having new writers everyday and hence having same content in the same niche just rewritten is not a coincidence now.There is a hell lot of competition over the blogosphere and that makes the job that much more difficult for any writer to have an appealing article on his blog.

The subscribers that you have for your blog also tend to go away as they almost receive the same thing from different people and the net result is that you are on the losing side.In this wide spread spectrum of niche and articles,only that person who is smart and ready to do things with innovation can survive.The main thing to understand is that how you relate all the post to your blog's central idea.When the readers reads the same content in a different way altogether with better understanding makes the readers attract to the blog more and more as the reader knows that the writer has some great potential to serve the content in a manner in which he can make anyone understand very easily.

Doing research on any topic before writing it down always helps any writer.Deep understanding about the topic makes the content more meaningful and presentable to the readers.Clear expression of thought makes that post stands out from the rest.Do not try and make readers search for the words or sentence explanation and scratch their heads for things that they cannot understand.This requires proper presentation and not creating just an abstract of a content.Helping readers understand each things clearly will make them come again and again to your blog.

Thus by serving your content fresh and hot with some different spice always helps to change the taste of the readers. They might even appreciate your writing style and you will in turn benefit with time.

This is the final installment in the series on how to attract readers to your blog this new year.You can always refer to Part 1, Part 2 and part3 for more details.

19. Guest Bloggers
Try inviting others to write for your blog and thus improve the content over your blog.As more people come to know that you have other good writers writing for your blog then you can always have more people coming to your blog for quality content.

20. Get Links from Other Blogs
Getting mentioned on other sites and blogs in the same niche, I think, has been the best way to get a readership who keeps returning to a blog. Make contact with other bloggers in yoru niche via comments, email, AIM, skype, homing pigeons – whatever.

21. Newsletters
The Zookoda newsletter provides nice spikes and people tend to forward the newsletter to their friends.

22. Social Networks
Submit your story to Digg and reddit and, regardless of whether it makes the front page or not, you get 50-100 free hits. The easiest way to generate quick exposure. Failing that, comment frequently on blogs that you like. With any luck, the blog author will want to find out more about you, follow the link to your blog, and perhaps write a post referencing one of your posts.

23. Pitch Your Posts
I view other bloggers as a PR pros view journalists working in traditional media. I reach out to bloggers using tactics successfully employed in the world of professional media relations. For instance, I “pitch” specific posts that they might find adds value to topics they are writing about. I also send email introducing them to my blog, but only if there’s a good fit between my blog and theirs. The key is to be very selective in approaching the “media gatekeeper”–just as successful and smart media relations people do.

I hope you would have liked and learned important tricks to attract visitors to your site in 2011.Happy new year and merry Christmas.

Pokemon Silver/Gold Walkthrough


This walkthrough is for GBC pokemon silver/ gold game.The walkthrough is as follows:

A.New Bark town
The story unfolds with you playing as the little boy.Collect the pokegear and head outside for Prof Elm lab.Choose from the 3 options Chikorita, Cyndaquil or Totodile.I suggest you choose Cyndaquil if you want some real competition in the game at the start up.Cyndaquil fairs quite well for initial leveling up thing in front of bug as well as bird Pokemons but it will only be vulnerable against the first gym leader but then its the most excellent type to raise for the rest of the game against the remaining 7 gym leaders and the elite 4 and champion.Anyways you can choose anyone and it is how you raise them to win the game.Collect the potion from Prof's aide and lookout for Mr. Pokemon.

B.Cherrygrove City.
Proceed through west from New Bark town and move through West of Route 29 to reach Cherrygrove city.Be sure to heal your Pokemon if your Hp is low in the Pokemon centre.Check out the old man for Map Card for your Poke gear.Now head north on route 30 for Mr. Pokemon's house by taking right path from split.Do take the berries that you get on the way to help yourself.Now head north to reach Mr. Pokemon's house to collect the pokedex from Prof Oak.Now return back to new bark town with some levelling up of your sole Pokemon.When you visit Elm's lab you will find out that a Red haired guy stole the Pokemon from Elm's lab.Anyways collect 5 pokeballs and continue your journey to route 30.Remember to purchase some pokeballs from Cherrygrove town and try catching a Geodude to help yourself for battle against the gym battle where you have to fight with the leader with all Bird type pokemon.Instead you can stop by to trade Bellsprout for Onix in Violet town.

C. Violet Town
Here head south towards the building and trade Bellsprout for onix if you do not have Geodude yet. I suggest you head north now to sprout tower and level up your pokemons( but not geodude or onix) particularly if you have Cyndaquil.Defeat Li to get Hm05 flash.Now head over to violet city for Gym batlle.I would suggest that you have at least 2 pokemons at level 12-14 atleast to beat the gym leader Falkner fairly easily.After defeating the Leader you get Zephyr Badge and Tm31 Mud slap.Now Elm calls you up to to his lab.Go there and collect the Egg from his Aide.Now move to Route 32 and through Union cave.Be sure to have miracle seed to boost grass type move.Union cave has rock type pokemons so defeat them easily with your grass type pokemons and go to route 33 to Battle Anthony.Defeating him will give access to his number and notification on Dunsparce swarms.Now head west to Azalea town.

G.Ecruteak city
First battle the kimono girls and defeat them to get the Hm05 surf.After that refill health of your pokemon at the poke centre and head to burned tower to battle your rival.After defeating him (you should as it is still easy) head over to the hole to encounter raikou, Entei nad Suicune.They run away and you encounter them randomly in the grass pateches in Johto.After this haed over to the gym to defeat Marty who has all ghost type pokemon.Use either rock type or psychic type to win easily here.After defeating Marty you will get Fog badge to enable use of surf(hm05) outside battle.Now head to Olivine city through route 38 and 39.

H.Olivine city
You rival is here again.this guy doesn't battle but informs that Gym leader is in lighthouse.move up the lighthouse through various tough battlers to reach find out that her pokemon is not well and you have to go to Cianwood island to get the medicine for him.Head over to cianwood Island.

I.Cianwood island
Here you have a gym battle with Chuck, master of fighting type pokemons.Use bird type pokemons or the Psychic ones to easily win this gym leader battle.Get the Storm badge and her wife outside gives you Hm02 fly that you can use to fly to any place you would have visited earlier.Now purchase the medicine from the shop in the south and head over again to Olivine City.

J.Olivine city
Move in the lighthouse and give the medicine to jasmine's pokemon and it gets better and she is ready to battle you.She uses steel type pokemons.So use ground type moves like earthquake to win over easily.Use water type moves against steelix to counter it easily.Then you get the mineral badge along with Tm23 Iron tail.Now flyback to Ecruteak city to reach Mahogany town.

K.Mahogany town
here reluctantly you have to visit the lake of rage to defeat Red gyrados.After you do you get red scale and then speak to Lance, the champion that you are going to face later in the game to learn about Team rocket's menace again.Follow Lance to Mahogany town and defeat Team rocket HQ to get Hm06 whirlpool from Lance.Now move to the gym and you find that the Gym leader is master of Ice type pokemon.Use fire type and electric type pokemons to have the edge.After defeating him you get Glacier badge with Tm16 Icy wind.Now Elm calls you up and tells you about the problems in the radio tower of Goldenrod town.Fly to reach there and go towards the Radio tower and defeat the impostor to get the key.Now move to the underground entrance and defeat the team rocket their to release the chief.Now after the mess head to the Ice path from route 44 through Mahogany town's east.

L.Ice Path
Here collect the Hm07 waterfall and move over to the town of Blackthorn.

M.Blackthorn city
you can make some of your pokemon forget the HM moves that you do not want them to have in the south of the town.Now head over to the gym which is specialised in Dragon type pokemons.Gym leader Clair is the lone competition and fairly tough to defeat.if you do not have proper lvelled up pokemons here then you are in real trouble as she is no walkover like others.Defeat her to learn about dragon fang that she wants you to get before she gives you the final badge.Bring back dragon fang from the Dragons den to receive rising badge and all pokemons obey you now and also get Tm24 dragonbreath. Fly back now to New bark town to get the Master ball from Elm. This will catch anyone without fail.Also try using it for extremely rare pokemon before you go to victory road for the final battle.

N.Victory Road
Head east from New bark town and use surf to get to the victory are the battles that will test you if you are not well prepared you can squeak a bit here.Also levelling up here will help you on the final 5 tough battles that await you.Cross the victory road to reach indigo plateau.
O.Indigo plateau.Here your rival will battle with his 5 tough pokemons but you should be able to defeat him fairly easily if you have all type pokemons with you.Defeat him and heal your pokemons and purchase some items before going in as the battlers you are going to face now will surely test your knowledge about type battles and test your abilities to the fore.You have to defeat all four to get to the champion( a bit harsh) and you cannot heal yourself at the poke centre.Anyways you can use the healing potions as I advised you and move towards the chamion lance, The dragon Master.His pokmons are L44 gyrados,two Lv47 dragonite,Lv 46 charizard(my favorite and not available in thsi game for anyone to raise), Lv 46 Aerodactyl and a Lv 50 Dragonite.Use all your skills that you have learned through out the game to win this fight as it is very intense.My advice is to have 2-3 rock type pokemons to tackle these dragons and win over eventually.

P. Game over----No
After defeating the champion if you think game is over then can move ahead and fill your pokedex and collect more 8 badges from the new Cities that you encounter once you restart the game after saving.So enjoy the adventures and fill your pokedex to become the ultimate trainer.
