It makes your blog look better and it helps promote your Instagram account at the same time!
Two: Change up the background of your blog every once in a while. It will give your blog a new look and make it different without having to really do anything different.

Keep these super fast and easy tips in mind when you are thinking of ways to increase your blog traffic and give your blog a fresh look!
One thing we all have a problem with when writing for our blog is we run out of things to talk about. You probably mostly have this problem if you have a business blog. I mean think about it. If you have a personal blog then there is always something to talk about, whether it be a new house that you just bought, a painting you’ve been creating, or baby’s first birthday.
But when you have a business blog it’s not so easy as all that, is it? The answer is no. Not. At. All.
Here are a few easy ideas for you to use when all else fails!
What’s new: Write an update about your business, or a problem that was fixed. Tell everyone about the new addition you made to the business and how it’s working out.
Write something about the business: Tell people about how the business came about, what your mission is, or what the next step is that you plan to take to bring things to the next level. You’ve got to write about the most recent things that are happening, but you can’t forget to tell them a little history too, every once in a while.
Do a story on the owners: A post about the owner is a never fail! Write about what they love and what are their interests are. Talk about why they started the business. Make it a “get to know more about the founders” post. People will love it!
These are always good subjects to use because every now and then it’s nice to change stuff up. That way people want to come back to read more. If you just write the same type of posts day after day interest is quickly lost. Try to do a post like this at least once or twice a month.
Sometimes writing a blog post can be difficult. Finding the right words to transfer your thoughts to a post isn’t always the easiest and you might find yourself sitting looking at a screen for far too long without any results. And I’m pretty sure that none of us really has the time to waste on blank pages, and empty screens.
Here are four tips to make writing a blog post quick and easy!
Have an idea: If you have an idea already in your head, and know that basic format and approach you are going to take BEFORE you sit down at the computer it’ll probably be much easier to start writing. It’s a common issue (like stage fright) to have your brain freeze when you sit down to write if you don’t already have at least an idea of what you want to write about before sitting down.
Keep it simple: Keep it simple and to the point. People like to see what they came to see and than leave. Nobody wants to sit reading something for forever-no matter how good the writing and content is. Use 300 to 500 words per a post, and no more or else it gets too long.
Bullet point: Pull out all the bullet points. It makes certain sections stand out, among your writing, highlights (without using the highlights). However, make sure when using bullet points you keep your paragraphs short. About five to six sentences. Say what you want without boring your readers.
Know what you want: When writing if you know what message you want to get across first, then getting it down in writing will be ten times easier. Think about what you want your post to be about. The newest iPhone, how to cook a steak, the latest news, a book review, etc, have an idea and then get busy typing!
By using these tips you’ll be able to write fast and have awesome blog posts that people can read in five minutes or less.
