We’ve implemented some exciting changes in the new platform to help improve the quality of community content, such as blog posts, including the three-tier blogger levels.  Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your blogging experience with the new SAP Community:

  • Write a personal narrative.  Blogs should be used to share a personal experience or opinion, best practices, or stories.
  • Choose a topic that interests a wide audience, rather than a niche group.
  • Be sure to tag your content with the most relevant primary tag and any additional relevant secondary and/or user tags.
  • Keep it brief.  Stick to the point and add details only when it benefits the purpose of your article.
  • Include media, such as images or embedded videos.  Not only do these create visual interest, they can help to explain complex concepts or add depth to a story.
  • Include a call-to-action, such as “For more details, please visit this user guide [link]” or “Click here to sign up for a future meeting.”  This helps the reader to answer the infamous “so what?” question upon finishing your post.

    Hi Jamie,

    nice tips, thank you.
    But I think they are not specific to the new SAP Community at all, are they?
    They would all have applied to blogging in SCN, too!
    (Well, except “Be sure to tag your content with the most relevant primary tag and any additional relevant secondary and/or user tags.” but there would have been an equivalent in SCN: “Use the right space and give appropriate tags“).

    I think I do agree with most of your tips, but I would like to add my suggestion about

    “Choose a topic that interests a wide audience, rather than a niche group.”

    -> Blog about stuff you know and/or care about, no matter if it attracts a small or a big group! (If only a few people are interest in your topic, they will be even happier to read high-quality content!)

    best
    Joachim
