Today I would like to speak about the advantages of having a blog to share your music. The first blog I had was named like2read. It was a blog where I posted poems and short-stories. I tell you that because no matter what you do, having a blog is useful.
Why should you start blogging?
Blogging is as you know a part of the world we live in. Millions of people got blogs. As a musician I found that sharing my music on my blog mad it easier for me to reach a bigger audience. There is a big community of bloggers who are friendly. The audience doesn’t come without a prize though. There is a few things to keep in mind when blogging.
Post music or related content regularly
To stay on top of blogging you need to consider how often you are going to post something. No matter if it’s songs, updates or random posts if it’s not consistent you won’t come far.
Be an active blogger instead of reactive
When you want views you got to give views. If you want comments you got to comment on other people’s stuff. It’s just how this community work. If you stay active on a regular basis you will be percieved as reliable.
Find your target keywords (SEO)
Sometimes people will be visiting your blog which isn’t in the WordPress community. They could be social media followers, friends or they could be people who found you through google. When searching for a topic viewers find it much easier to visit a website higher in google search. Actually over 90% of clicks in google search happen on the first page of google search. When finding your target keywords you could use google adwords keyword search. Keep in mind it is better to use personal keywords. So if your band or artist name is: Wicked sense, the target keywords should be more like: Wicked sense blog than an impersonal one like: Rock band Sweden.
