Connecting with Your Readers

Hospitality: the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers.

Typically, when you think of hospitality you think of welcoming guests into your home or another physical setting but, hospitality is not exclusive to physicality.

If you want to keep traffic flowing and attract visitors to your blog, your writing must emanate hospitality. You need to be welcoming.

“…hospitality is not exclusive to physicality.”

Many successful bloggers recommend casual, conversational writing and it’s because being casual and conversational are hospitable and inclusive. People relate to it, they feel welcomed. Using too many technical terms, strictly proper grammar and leaving out relative terms like “right?” And “you know?” can cause a reader to feel like an outsider or disconnected.

When you write, think hospitality; welcome your readers into your thoughts. In the world of social media, your blog is your home. Hospitality works with site visitors the same way it works with house guests.
