5 Things Angry Birds Can Teach You About Blogging

This is a guest post by James Yeang


1. There’s more than one way to get things done. Just as there’s more than one way to solve an angry birds puzzle, don’t just rely on a single source to guide you through your blogging experience. Most people are biased in favor of what they themselves have been successful with. Experiment and learn from it, and you may come up with a solution of your own.  There’s more than one way to write a successful blog. 

2. Don’t give up.  Some angry birds levels are incredibly difficult. They almost seem impossible to complete. You get the same feeling sometimes if your traffic plateaus, or you get a case of writer’s block. Just don’t give up because the next great idea is often around the corner.  Great blogs aren’t built overnight, and you need a consistent pace to get to where you want.

3. Timing is crucial. Some levels require you to interact with birds in flight. Here timing is always critical. Same goes with blogging. If you strike while the iron is hot, pick the right topics, you get more attention.  Pick up on hot news in your niche and give your own spin to it.  Writing about the topic of the hour will almost certainly get you more attention and reactions from your readers.

4. Pick a path and fine-tune accordingly. Perhaps the most important trait to have with Angry Birds is learning from your previous mistakes. Finetuning your writing and blogging strategy is just as important as finetuning your trajectory on Angry Birds.  Test different advertising placements, tweak your niche and test out new ways of writing which you haven’t done before.  Changes you make when you blog don’t need to be radical.  Once you find out what works best for your blog, just zero in and focus on it.

5. Have fun. In the end, just like putting birds in flight to combat pigs who steal eggs, blogging is meant to be fun. If it isn’t , or if things start to get you down, then take a step back, smell the roses and try again another day

    Wow. Everyone’s been talking about Angry Birds lately, it seems. It must be a really amazing and fun game if I’m seeing so much mention of it!

    Is there a non-iOS version around? I’m not any type of Mac user, but now I’m really, really curious!

    @Friedbeef, Thank you tons! I honestly am not really familiar with shopping around for apps. I’m still using a flip phone, to be honest. 🙂 But more and more, I’m getting romanced by neat features that smart phones have

    Kinda leaning toward an Android next, I think. And if I do, I’m getting Angry Birds! lol

    Haha, nicely done. It’s cool how you can learn a lot from games or any life events and transform them into blogging tips

    I mostly use some ideas from the Sunday’s sermon and transform them into blogging tips 🙂

    You simply cannot appreciate the brilliance of Angry Birds unless you play the game. You could waste a good deal of time catapulting those angry birds through the air trying to get the arc just right so you smash the pigs castle.

    Great post!!. A nice philosophical way to look at a game like Angry Birds. You can apply the same points to things other than blogging.

    Looking forward to similar posts about other games.
