    How would one work on the being naturally humorous if they are quite the opposite? Asking for a friend (just kidding). Great article!! I will be sure to try these out when I have a chance. Post engagement is imperative to running a successful blog/page/site.

    Hi Michael,
    Very true!
    Every aspect of a market offering, including the nature of the product itself, is driven by the needs and wants of potential consumers.

      Yes, and it all begins with user retention through engaging practices 😉

      Thanks tuanle,

    I have been known on rare occasion to experiment with #4 Elvis. But only here and there. Just dabbling a bit 🙂 Really, adding humor to my blog and travel stories has helped boost engagement like you wouldn’t believe. Sometimes I even distract folks with my humor, which is not intended but I get a kick out of it. A member of a travel blog tribe sharing group forgot to tweet one of my posts the other day. I could care less but the admin reminded her. She apologized, but said headline grabbed her attention and she had to read the post, and got so caught up in it that she forget to RT it. Title:

    Rocking post dude.

      Lol yes, trust me Ryan, I have gotten distracted by your humor once in a while. And that’s a great thing. Even if it’s not downright humorous, the occasional tongue-in-cheek stuff just makes everything stand out …depending on the occasion.

      There was a post on Clickfire.com recently that read, “How to write a blog post your worst enemy will share.” Chances are I wouldn’t have clicked/shared it if the headline was more traditional. So that was another fine example of effective humorous marketing.

    Thanks for these tips. Yes, I’ve been seeing more humor and surveys and a ton of gifs. I guess we all need to “up our game” to stay relevant. Great examples here, too.

      As long as I don’t have to use emojis too often. Even the word itself annoys me.

      Lol, thanks Lucia

    Hi Michael,

    Love these tips and I am working on improving my blog content. It’s a little hard to add humor to my blog when I write a lot of tutorials. I am working on it because I know that I love reading blogs that add humor and storytelling to their articles.

    Also, loved the Easter Egg analogy. I hadn’t thought of that, but pretty cool idea.

    Unfortunately, it takes time to get improve our content. I’ve started writing more on a daily basis, because I know that it takes practice.

    Great tips and thanks for sharing them with us, I know that they’ll help me work on my content.

    Have a great day 🙂

      Ah, thanks for dropping in, Susan!
      You mean tutorials on SusanVelez.com? I can totally see some light humor and stories injected into those articles, no question!

      Example: “42 Ways of Coming Up With Blogging Ideas To Last You All Year”
      I can easily imagine a sentence explaining how “you no longer have to frantically get up in the middle of the night and trip over your cat just to write down a blogging idea on your computer” 🙂

      You get the idea, ha…

      Anyway i’m loving your content, and the screenshots really help — which I could really use more of when it comes to my own pieces.

    Hi Elvis,

    Gamification is an interesting suggestion that will improve our traffic and comments. Rating system is another option to increase the post engagements and quality of posts. I appreciate your idea and we should consider both tools which will create positive impacts on our blogging.

    The post is well written. Keep it up. Have a nice week ahead,

    Take care,

      By all means consider it! Anything that makes a website more fun is a win-win, especially if your blog needs a more “casual” atmosphere 🙂

      Good day,

    Those are some interesting tips, but I’m not sure about surveys. I always find surveys annoying and just ignore them, but I could be wrong as I’ve never actually used this technique.

    Nice blog! enjoyed reading this whole time and now It is no more a secret 🙂

    I completely agree with you that our content must be created according to our audience and also it is important to have a blog with a story which will keep our audience stick to our blog.

    Hi Elvis,

    I agree with you, younger people are preferring learning through multimedia through sites like Pinterest and YouTube. Only old people like us are heading to blog posts to learn new things. A good way to keep blogging alive is to integrate new ways and change our writing style to keep readers interested in reading our blog post.

    Your tips offer a great solution and things like quotes and GIFS are things that I can start implementing right away.

    Thank you so much for sharing.
