Humor: An Important Element to Your Blog
Now, that you have finally set up your blog, you want to add a little bit of something to make it more interesting for your readers. If this specific goal is what you are trying to achieve, then it be best that you ensure to equip your blogs with some humor. Above all, blogs do not just exist to provide information but also to give some entertainment.
Now, you want your blog to be funny but the problem remains that you do not know where to start. Maybe you already consider yourself as someone funny based on other people’s reactions. Or maybe other people do not consider you funny, and so you need some help with being funny.
Well, you have come to the right place. Here are some useful tips to help you out with achieving a funny blog or to make sure that there is a bit of humor as content for your blog.
1) Go for the unexpected and unusual elements
Though a lot of people assume that shock comedy is the most effective form of comedy, they should know that all humor is just as long as an element of surprise is introduced to people. Try considering slapstick.
With written word, on the other hand, adding the element of humor can be very difficult if you do not know what you are doing. Even so, there were times in your life where you have tried being in moments that seem absurd.
Just think of a scenario that has happened to you or those you know best, or some crazy story that has reached a good conclusion in the end. Develop a taste for something weird and learn to find it wherever you may be.
2) Utilizing some similes and metaphors
In order for your blogs to be as funny as you want, you can actually think of very crazy and exaggerated comparisons to be making between one scenario to another.
When it comes to similes and metaphors, the two get easily interchanged. When it comes to similes, it is saying that one thing is as another or is like another. If you talk about metaphors, on the other hand, they deal more with making direct comparisons of one thing from another.
Wordplay can also be one of the best things that you can do just as long as you are witty about it, that is, you should just use puns if they fit the situation that you have perfectly. You should know by now why groaners are what you call bad puns.
3) Taking advantage of irony and sarcasm
The above concepts are also typically being interchanged. Irony is more like something that has happened to you though that something happening is not what you have expected. Sarcasm, on the other hand, is when you are feeling something but then you pretend as if you are feeling the opposite.
