Do you need suggestions for a more successful blog?

Everyone wants to write a successful blog.

Even fiction writers.

And now I’ve discovered a new (new to me) term that might help.

Evergreen content

If you’re like me, the word evergreen brings to mind shrubs, trees and other foliage that stay green all year. But here is another definition of this adjective–retaining its relevance, popularity, usefulness, etc.; enduring.

So just how does Evergreen Content apply to a blog?

Write useful content that endures season after season will keep readers coming back.

Now wouldn’t it be wonderful to know that your blog, the one you’ve spent countless hours writing, will endure?

Me too!

A recent article by    – The Key to Creating a Successful Blog: Evergreen Content, explains how to write a blog post that endures.

Here is what I learned from her article.

  1. Don’t jump at the latest fad because what’s in vogue today may not be popular tomorrow.
  2. Do share how to do things. Everyone loves a good tutorial. Just look at the success of Youtube.
  3. Not into videos? Then share lists your readers can follow.
  4. Reviews are another great lasting subject. Everyone checks reviews and stars on stuff from books to drills.
  5. Think Dear Abby. Share real advice on your blog.

There is lots more in her article that will help you turn your blog Spring Green. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Do your blog posts contain Evergreen content?

Do you think her suggestions will help you?
