Informative Weight Loss Blog: How It Aids People Looking to Blast Away Fat

Reading a weight loss blog filled with lots of useful tips to shed excess pounds, written by a dieter who has succeeded in attaining a trimmer body, can be empowering. By reading about other people’s experiences – including why they became overweight, the challenges or setbacks they hurdled, their day-to-day activities and thoughts while losing (or gaining back) weight, the mindset and techniques that worked for them – you can pick up insights to get slimmer and healthier.

Blogs definitely help people who are trying to lose weight, since they present concrete ways and steps to take in order to hurdle problems like looking fat and feeling bloated. Blog readers that post their comments in some blog sites, sharing their own thoughts and experiences, may also present a handful of interesting ideas or some newfound discoveries.

Some blogs are written by regular individuals just sharing thoughts that come to mind. Others are written by wellness experts or medical practitioners who give good advice. Both types of blogs can be beneficial, depending on the type of readers and what their needs are. There are readers who want to lose weight naturally and turn to naturopathic doctors or other credible blog writers sharing natural weight loss techniques and products. Most readers just stumble into blogs while doing online research on how to blast away fat, and end up gaining valuable information.

There are also blogs elaborating the dos and don’ts in dealing with unsightly flab to the more dangerous visceral fat that can lead to lots of other health complications. One of the great things about reading a weight loss blog is that it brings home the point that other dieters do fail, but undertake other measures to get back on track to attain their get-trim-and-healthy goal.

Indeed, weight loss and health blogs can offer tons of ideas and inspiration for people intent on winning the battle of the bulge. There are blogs that share recipes, and how certain exercises, activities or habits help people lose weight. Most blogs (including comments posted on the blog sites) cite product brands and other weight loss aids. There are also highly informative blogs that go into the nitty-gritty on how certain ingredients in weight loss products work or affect the body.

Fitness experts or exercise buffs who write blogs, on the other hand, share how to go about with certain activities (like yoga, Pilates or exercising with kettle bells, among other effective fat busters) to aid in weight loss and overall wellness. Featured health experts are sometimes also invited as guest bloggers to shed light on issues like weight loss myths and facts (and present studies to prove their point), or how sleep & other factors (like what types of foods are ideal to eat during certain times of the day or before & after a workout), plus many others.

The One Secret You Must Know to to Build a Successful Blog

The most important work you’ll ever do on your blog happens before you create the blog. You need to know your audience. Otherwise you’re just shooting arrows in the dark… You have no hope of hitting your target. So what’s the one secret you must know?

I’ve been blogging for ten years. Until 2005, blogging was regarded as a weird preoccupation of geeky types. Then businesses caught on: a blog was a powerful business tool.

Once that realization dawned, blogs proliferated, and it was no longer enough to have a blog, you had to sharply target your blog to appeal to a particular audience. If you didn’t, you received little traffic. Other, more sharply targeted blogs, stole your traffic.

Therefore, that’s the ONE secret you must know in order to build a successful blog-site.

In a nutshell: know your audience and build a rapport.

Let’s look at how this works when you want to create a new blog.

You want to create a new blog for your business — a gym. You decide to target “health”. STOP! That’s much too amorphous. Enter the search term “health” into Google, and you’ll be face with over two trillion pages which reference health in some way.

That might be way more competition than you want to face.

If you’re sure you want to go with the health topic however, you can. Just focus a little more. A laser is much more powerful than a flashlight.

You could target:

* “Health” in your local area (your city). This gives you an excellent entree into Google, because Google Places lets you claim your local business listing, and this provides instant traffic to your website and blog; or

* Sports health, if your gym’s clientele is made up primarily of people who engage in various sports. (Or any other topic which is relevant to your gym’s membership.)

For business blogs, always think local, because local relevance is the direction in which the Web is heading.

But what if you’re an individual, rather than a business?

The same rules apply. Think local, and think targeted traffic.

Let’s imagine you’re working in a medical field, and you want to create a “health” blog, because you feel you have lots of valuable information to share.

Enter “health + _________ (your city)” into the Search field on Google. What’s the competition?

Whether your competition is huge, or minimal, you’ll still need to target further. How about preventative health for pregnant women? Or people who are under stress?

I hope I’ve given you something to think about. Remember, the secret to building a successful blog is knowing your audience, writing for them, and over time, building a strong rapport.
