One main trait that separates online writing such as blogging from print writing is that you can use links to point your readers in the direction of even more information about your topic. Linking to pages on your website (or even outside sources) in your blog entries shows readers that you care about whether they get the most information possible about the subject. If you can find current news stories or articles about your subject and link to them in your entries, people will begin to rely on you as a new source for that particular topic. When you link to other articles or websites (not competitors) that you think your readers will find interesting or relevant, you're building trust. This is important to create customer loyalty as well as to turn your customers into advocates for your product (i.e. people who suggest your photo color correction services product to others). Bloggers will often summarize someone else's article or blog. This is allowed as long as you link to the original source to avoid plagiarism problems. Respond to your readers' comments. When a reader leaves a comment on your blog (not spam), it's important to respond, especially if the comment is a question. This shows the reader that you care about their thoughts and comments and encourages them to comment again in the future. Online writing is meant to be interactive, which means the reader can interact with you (the writer) and vice versa. If you have tons of comments but haven't replied to any of them, chances are you'll start getting less and less as time goes on. People like to have their thoughts acknowledged, so keep your readers happy and respond! Leave comments on other blogs. This helps you become part of the blogger community. Search for blogs that concentrate on the same topic as you and leave a well-thought-out comment. Include a link to your blog to encourage others to check it out.
