On April 20th, I had the distinct pleasure of being a guest on Karl’s Secondhand Radio show on Blog Talk Radio. We talked about blogging, twittering, and all kinds of other crazy stuff. Karl asked me some questions about what makes a good blog writer while on the show and I was happy to share a top tip with Karl and his listeners.
BBB Alumni will remember this clearly: Show, don’t tell.
It is so important to relay information in an entertaining way when you are showing your reader what you’re talking about. Telling is boring and won’t bring readers back for more; but if you can show them what you’re talking about, appealing to those who respond to visual cues, you’ll be able to attract a larger audience and keep your readers coming back for more.
