So, let’s find out what you can do with your blog in 2019 –
1. Get inspired but don’t copy other’s content
There are many new bloggers who want to earn money instantly but they are not aware of the term plagiarism and copyright content. They just start writing on a topic and after 2-3 paragraphs they run out of content. And to complete the blog, they copy the content from other’s blog and paste it on their content which is completely wrong. By doing so, you will not just lose your website authenticity but also SEO strategies.
Especially in 2019 copying content from others is a big offense for Google and other search engines; you might end everything before starting your blog. Website with copied content will either get penalized or it will never get higher rank in any search engine.
Well, you can copy a few lines from others by acknowledging them smartly in your content. To acknowledge others content use terms as – “according to” and “the source from” for the website from where you are copying the content. You can get inspired by others but it doesn’t mean that you can copy the whole content, just take the idea and write it in your own genre.
2. Always be yourself while writing
Blog writing is not an easy job because you can’t just write it down whatever comes on your mind. Especially in 2019 you must know how to execute your words to hold the reader’s attention till the end. And, to create a unique blog content, you have to be original first and don’t try to copy other’s writing style. As copying others writing style will not help you to connect with your readers, they will find your content fake.
Don’t forget that you are building your brand name through your blog only and it needs to be original. Therefore, always maintain a conversational writing style as you talk and want to tell the readers.
3. Be interesting to make engagement
No matter how good content you have been writing and how valuable content you have been providing to your readers, but still you are not getting enough traffic for your website. Well, never forget that there are millions of choices for your readers and if you want your readers to visit your blog often then you must connect to your readers by making it interesting.

Moreover, sharing your own experience and case studies related to the topic can make your content more interesting.

5. Write in simple language with no grammatical or spelling mistake
Many bloggers think that writing content with heavy or fancy words and proverbs in the article will make their blog look like written by a professional writer. Well, it is not true because complex sentences make the article less understandable by non-native English speakers. The simple English language is the best to hold the reader’s interest till the end because they will understand fast whatever you want to say. If your reader is taking 1 minute to read a sentence and another 2 minutes to understand what you have written then they would prefer to switch to another website.
Correct grammar and spelling play a major role in your content because through your writing style only your reader will visit your website again. The grammar and spelling mistakes would leave a very bad impression and they could think you as an amateur writer. So, avoid grammatical and spelling errors while writing and if you are not sure then you can use grammar checker tools like Grammarly for error-free writing.

The audience would feel more connected with your blog while reading and it will give you a chance to convert those readers into your customer.
And, it is also true that Google doesn’t appreciate short content anymore because in-depth long content gives every detail to the readers and it won’t let readers look for other information. Hence, write in-depth long content as much you can and take the advantage of it.
