4 blogging tips for 2018 { + video}

Did you know that 65% of the population are visual learners? Also, YouTube has over a billion users, almost one-third of all people on the internet. And 500 million people watch Facebook videos every day. 

It's easy to see why video integration is a blogging trend prediction for 2018. 

But creating videos is scary. I know from my work with teachers that the thought of recording one's self is uncomfortable, and posting it for others to see is absolutely frightening!

But, if you've followed my blog or twitter feed for very long, you know what we do about FEAR around here - we face our fears! So I created a video about the 4 blogging tips for the new year. (Check it out below)

I would LOVE to hear from you on twitter or in the comments below about the one that has been the biggest hurdle for you so far.

The four tips:

1. Blog regularly, even when you're afraid the content is mediocre.

2. Don't compare your blog to someone else's. Do you. Be bold.

3. Invite engagement by asking a question at the end of your post.

4. Add a video component to your post.

Based on the descriptions in the video above, are one of these tips a strength of yours? 
Is there one that you're working on?

I faced my fears. It's time to face yours, too! Share your video with me on twitter (@jennifer_hogan)!

  1. Thank you Jennifer for modeling what it means to step up and try something different with our blogging. Three times previously I had written one or two blogs and then would quit, I’m really pushing myself to not give up again. Thanks for the encouragement and tips!
