Seeing one persons, or one organizations perspective on a subject all the time isn’t really a healthy way to get information. This is when bias ideas form, and is unhealthy for a community. This is something that we over look on blogs. Most of the time, a blog is written by one person, and they are expressing their views and ideas. Sometimes, it is a good thing to mix up the routine of your blog. You can do this in multiple ways.
1. Guest Bloggers
Guest bloggers are really a good idea. Having someone blogging an article a month or something similar can really benefit your blog. The readers get diversity in views and even styles of writing. Your guest blogger can come from many different sources. Maybe a different friend each month, or user submitted stories to your blog.
2. Group Blogging
3. Partnering with Another Blog
This is a combination of Group Blogging and Guest Bloggers, the concept is that you “trade” stories with another blog that has very similar content. You create an article for them, and vise versa. Not only does this add diversity to your blog, but it also allows your article to be viewed by people who may never have visited your own blog.
The diversity that these suggestions provide, could even draw in more viewer who wouldn’t have looked at your blog if you were the only writer on it. It also helps your blog not grow stale to the readers, and expands the content. Some of the suggestions even give you the benefit of taking a little time off, which is a personal gain.
