Build a Better Blog: Ask a Question

Build a Better Blog: Ask a Question

After taking a break last week for TV-Free Activity ideas, we’re back with the Blogger Challenge!  This week’s task (#25) is to ask a question.  There are many reasons to ask a question in your post.  Here are four big ones:

  1. It gives readers a sense of community and participation—there’s nothing like coming to a blog where readers are interacting; it gives the blog a sense of being alive.
  2. It increases Blog Stickiness—people are more likely to return to a blog if they’ve contributed.
  3. Reader answers can fuel future post ideas for your blog.
  4. Well-worded questions can often rank high in search engines. Pick a question that people will ask when they search the Web for answers and optimize your page for that question, and you could rank quite well.

Seems simple enough.  Be on the look-out for a question post here in the next week or two.  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know if you’ve got a question on your blog so I can answer it!

Update: Check out the great response Joey got on his Question Post: How Do We Know God is Real?
