How to Create an Impressive Technology Blog

So you’ve opened your tech blog, gave it a customary techie look, promoted it your social media accounts, and submitted it to a reputable technology blog directory. Work accomplished? Probably not if you have been at it for quite some time and you have yet to create a tiny ripple in the online world. Is it possible that you have not created a technology blog that is not quite impressive as you hoped it to be? Possible!

How can you create blogs that roar instead of whimper?

Create a Physical Appearance Which the Audience Can Relate To

If you are targeting a specific audience like what one usually does when creating a tech site, it is important to make it clear that you are offering a tech site. Do not confuse the audience by choosing a blog theme or lay-out that exudes an image that is far from being techie. Create the atmosphere and the overall experience so you get to attract the right audience you cater to.

Create the Expected Content While Providing Suitable Surprises

Creating expected content is necessary so as not to disappoint those who are searching for such information. However, expected content need not be boring since they can always be presented in more exciting ways. Also, unexpected but related contents are always welcome additions to a roster of quality content. Just be very careful not to totally deviate from the niche as this can also end up confusing your regular readers.

Be The First

Topics in technology are frequently updated. It would be a plus factor if your blog is the first or at least among the early ones who provide information about new tech developments. Providing consistently updated information will develop the habit among readers to look at your blog first . Being at the tail-end of tech developments is not really in sync with the desire to be one of the most impressive tech blogs there is.

Get Your Blog Out There

If you do not have the attention and traffic you want, you need to take steps to create it. More often than not, lasting impression is created by the person behind the blog. As the author, you need to be out there for you to bring back something to your blog as shown in your contents. Promote yourself as you promote your blog. It will be difficult to separate one from the other so try to be as impressive as you want your blog to be.

The End of the World: A New Beginning? [INFOGRAPHIC]

So it’s the end of the world. So what? So the graveyards are tenantless, and the unregenerate deceased have risen in a hiddeous, slobbering mockery of humanity? We say, “Party on.

It may be the end of the world, but that’s no reason to feel sorry for yourself! It just represents a new and different set of opportunities. Look: capitalism has always thrived on a process of creative destruction. All your customers have gone extinct? What–the whole soccer-mom demo has seen a population-wide collapse after the moon turned to blood, and the dead rose out of their graves? Well then it’s time for you to search out a new demographic. Maybe repurpose your product to make it more appealing to zombies.

Our infographic today will be useful for folks in the photography industry who have survived the zombie apocalypse, but don’t want to change their profession.

Oil-pacalypse [INFOGRAPHIC]

In the whole discussion about energy and oil, the good news is that we keep innovating.

This week a panel experts at the Automotive News World Congress in Detroit (still the auto-capital of America), said it would be entirely feasible for automakers to comply with the federal government requirement to meet a Corporate Average Fuel Economy target of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025 using current technology. The panel talked about turbochargers, start-stop systems, direct injection and advanced battery technology.

I don’t know if this is good news or bad news.  It’s good that we’re improving fuel efficiency.  It’s bad that the regulators haven’t given the auto industry a more challenging prod.  Basically the message: do a slightly more efficient job with the technology you’re already working with.  Due date: One decade from now.

Whatever happened to hydrogen fuel? Isn’t anyone worried about running out of plastic?

The bad news is: we’re still on track to run out of oil by 2050.

Check out what the consequences of running out of oil might end up looking like, if we don’t get our act together in the next few years.
