A Successful Blog for Wedding and Party Music

Magnolia Jazz Band A Successful Blog for Wedding and Party Music Magnolia Jazz Band’s first blog, 2007

Everyone wants a successful blog, but what makes a blog successful?

Depends on what you’re aiming for.  For example, I’ve been blogging since 2007.  The blog has changed quite a bit since then, but one of my objectives has always been to market my band.

To have colleagues and prospects think of us whenever they need lively, elegant music for a wedding or party.  The successful blog keeps loyal clients loving us — returning and recommending us to their friends and clients.

For me, the band’s successful blog adds new engagements to our schedule.  Along the way, the blog reflects my thoughts and feelings and invites a steady flow of interesting conversations, online and off.

Do you know how many blogs exist today?  I recently read it’s estimated about 250 million, and I’m sure they pursue a great many objectives.  For example selling something, sharing ideas, spreading information, building a mailing list, or advocating a cause.  Often several of these.  Sometimes a blog simply serves as a creative outlet.

Whatever it’s objective, the successful blog achieves it’s aim.  No surprise here.

There are many variables.  For example a successful blog may need to reach only a limited audience or it may need to be accessible world-wide.  It may require 100,000 readers or it may require only 100 to be successful.  It may require readers to keep returning or it may accomplish the goal in one visit.  It needs to consider how important is content, posting frequency, structure, promotion, engagement, and “voice”?

To cover all these situations, and more, we can learn blogging strategies and techniques from hundreds of “experts”.  People with all kinds of backgrounds in fields like internet technology, SEO, marketing, psychology, as well as practical business experience, offer advice reflecting their expertise.  They teach us so many ways to regard our blog, and who knows, probably all are important.

Thank goodness for all these experts!  Blogging is still an infant phenomenon, and we’re wise to develop a well-balanced perspective.

How about YOU?  Are you a blogger?  How are you learning to create a successful blog?

Great word, “wonderfuel”.  Your creation?  
Glad you like this post.  Each blog has it’s own criterion for success.  Here in this Blog Challenge, we’re certainly getting lots of practice and solidifying habits.  I HOPE they’re good ones and make our blogs improve.

Wedding is the most memorable occasion and to make it memorable hire a live music band to play a melodious wedding song and music.
