Three simple ways to bore the hell out of your readers

Why you're boring and how you can avoid being so... How about reading a blog with a content that doesn’t even extend to 10 pages altogether for one hour. You can’t do it, even if you have a crush on the writer, right? 😉
Or maybe I can say there’s a possibility in which such blogs’ time-per-visit might be better than that of better blogs. Wondering how? You’d have gone to sleep without your knowledge. Jokes apart, But catching up with a blog with boring content is next to impossible. Okay, getting into the point, none of us ‘desire’ to bore our readers. But it happens, naturally.
What? Naturally? Hmmm, Not really. There are three things I’d suggest you to concentrate on, in order to avoid writing the most boring articles.

Why you sound boring and how you can avoid being so…

  1. You write a post in 2011: “Mobile Number Portability: The next new thing in Indian telecom industry.” ~ The first visit to your blog would be the last one as well. You’re outdated. That’s enough for me to keep away from your blog.
  2. You’re monotonous. You write wonderfully, I love the way you write. But Man oh man, where’s the room for me to act? Believe it or not, I’ve gone through blogs that has most of the amazing posts with the comments section closed.
  3. Your social profiles reflect your blog. There are cases where I’ve acquainted with people on twitter/facebook and later go behind their blogs. In such cases, if you have a creepy profile, would I even give it a thought to have a look at your blog? I, apparently, wouldn’t.
  4. You’re perfect. I’ve got nothing to criticize, compliments are boring you see. So, I can sum it up as: Perfection is a direct cause of boredom. Even if you know what’s exactly right, don’t just say it. Make it interesting, engage your readers by raising controversies.
  5. Your heading says you have three tips to give but you, a boring person indeed, have put up five tips. You don’t know what you do and look like an idiot. I guess you’ve got my point quite well! 😛

That’s it from me, do you have something to say? Or something to laugh at me? 😉
You’ve got an opportunity to make a boring post an interesting one by adding your awesome comments. Go ahead!

  • I find it is disappointing when an article manages to have a really catchy headline but turns out to be really boring or misleading article myself. Good points about what turns readers off.

    • Glad you liked it, Justin. Thanks for dropping by 🙂

  • Shakti

    Hahaha…Funny way to put serious points..lovely!!!

    • Thank you so much for the comment Shakti, glad you liked it 🙂

  • good points to avoid boring out the readers. many of them write lengthy posts and forget about being funny…smile is the only thing that makes readers read rest of the article. 🙂

    • Exactly gautam, irony, wit and sarcasm does the trick. At the same time We must also make sure we have some content above which humour must be layered on, and also take care it doesn’t go the other way around. 😉

  • there should be something for the reader to interact with , like making him to comment , asking him to subscribe , make him take an action .

  • A commentworthy post, ya I agree some posts really bore the heck out of people (like this one! 😛 Just kidding). One of the basic factors a post can turn out boring can be the way the author writes the post. I have seen many people write emotionless writing. I think it is really a good idea to include emotions in post (like you do) rather than a dull boring post. Also another factor that I have noticed that adds to making the post boring is the length. Many people seems to have the habit of writing epic posts. Well sometimes epic posts are OK (particularly if it is a list post) but not always. I mean not everybody has such long reading span.

    Great post dude
