5 Tips to Improve Your Blog Signed by Quentin Tarantino

As far I know Quentin Tarantino is not a blogger : am I right? :-)

I am a big fan of movies like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill or Jackie Brown and I think that as bloggers, we can learn a lot from Quentin Tarantino.

Take a look at these 5 points.

1 . Divide a Story into Episodes

Especially when the story starring a blond pissed off and armed with a sword. Kill Bill is divided into two episodes, and could not be otherwise because it is a story to tell with great attention to details.

Details that catch the attention of the people, but they need the right timing.

Online writing should be streamlined and simple, but this does not mean that you can devote to larger projects.

Try yourself to share your Big Articles via episodes, may be with weekly appointments.

2 . Put Your Face in the Content

It is not difficult to trace the presence of Quentin Tarantino in his movies.

Some are obvious (in the film Reservoir Dogs he is one of the robbers), in others more veiled (in Jackie Brown he give his voice on the answering machine), but Tarantino is one who likes to put his face.

Do it on your blog and while you write your content.

Share personal stories, and be sure to write correctly your “About Me” page ( your picture is a Must! ).

3 . Use Internal Links

Did you know that there is a Pulp Trilogy? It begins with Reservoir Dogs, continue with True Romance and closes with Pulp Fiction, all topped off with a series of references that connect the episodes of the saga as a web.

Try to imagine all the posts in your blog as a small part of a larger story, and you can help your readers to discover it with internal links.

4 . Stand on the Shoulders of Giants

Quentin Tarantino takes inspiration to many directors and producers.

His films include a multitude of references to many different genres – from horror to westerns – but it is not a mystery, in fact Tarantino has always admitted his passion for references.

For this reason you do not have to be afraid to take inspiration from Big Bloggers in your niche : stand on the shoulders of giants and reach higher goals!

Do not say steal, but get ideas and, above all, quote. If you quote and gives credits, you will never be wrong.

5 . Do Not Forget to Dare

Quentin Tarantino is great because he never stopped to dare, to be special, to be unique.

Think about Pulp Fiction, or the world success of Kill Bill.

So you should be original, and do not be afraid to dare or to follow your intuition. Sometimes you can make mistakes, but you will always learn from them.

If you have some crazy ideas, you can give a shot and see what happens. You will never know if your project will be the next revolution of the web!

With time you will be able to reach Huge Goals !

  1. Hi Erik,
    thanks fo this post – nice and fresh tips ;)
    BTW – I didn’t know that Pulp Fiction was the last movie from series…
    BR, Chris

  2. What a great comparison! I would have never thought about it, even though I’m a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino, especially since I saw Kill Bill. :D

    This is a new tip for me. I didn’t realized the advantages of dividing a story into episodes, that sounds really good because it can make readers be more interesting in the topic because they have something to look forward too. And also putting the face on your about me section, yes I totally agree on that. It’s one way of showing to people you are honest with your actions.

    • Hi Marnie,
      I am glad you learned something new.
      Dividing a long post into sections, bring more curiosity,
      don’t you think so?

  4. Stephanie says:

    HA! I love this. :)

  5. I very much like the idea of dividing a bigger entry into several smaller ones. Instead of one visit, you’ll get several hits out of it, especially if you use other dramatic tricks like ending each post with a question that compels readers to come back.

  6. A great post with a great theme and reference to Mr Tarantino (love his movies and unique ways :))

    With the referencing and “Stand on the Shoulders of Giants” tips, I think its a great idea to link out to other blogs and writers etc which are well known and using them as references could not only help with making your posts more interesting but could also gain you some links.

  7. Awesome post, Erik. But I am little disappointed… what, no reference to “Inglourious basterds”? :-)
    Love Tarantino, and I must admit I like the reference to building posts into episodes, like in the two installments of Kill Bill. I have done some series like that, and people appreciate it. Makes it easier to digest, too.

    Cheers,
    Frederic

    • Nice point, Frederic : my bad about “Inglorious Basterds”! ;-)
      But I do love almost all the movies of Quentin!
      Crazy and Genius at same time…
      Thanks for your comment.

  8. Erik,

    I am a big Tarantino Fan. Great post. I did not realize the trilogy. Good tip.

  9. Phillipa Kiripatea says:

    Some great tips here.
    I have started to put my face everywhere, and the episodes tip is gold!

    Thanks Erik for a fantastic article.

  10. Good stuff Erik. I didn’t know those three movies were part of a trilogy either, something new I’ve learnt today.

    Some good tips here though, one that’s probably so obvious you didn’t put it in though was to tell a great story with each blog.

    If you can make each post entertaining and informative then you’re onto a winner.

    • Hi Adi,
      I agree with that : each post should be informative or entertaining, in order to keep the visitor and reader coming back to your blog.
      Thanks for your comment! :-)

  11. Great tips here, Erik. I love the one on imagining all your blog posts to be part of a larger story. Makes a lot of sense and stops one from randomly writing as I see on so may blogs these days. And dividing a story into episodes – that’s along the same lines but awesome advice. Great idea for a blog post.

    • Hi Gazalla!
      Sometimes if we have a long story to tell, it is an interesting idea to divide it into stories…This increases curiosity! ;-)
      Thanks for your comment!

  12. Genius, what a great idea for a post! I’m a total movie buff and I don’t know much about blogging (except through trail and error) – but now things are clicking nicely.

  13. regardless of the severity Quentin Tarantino, I am amazed you were able to get an idea from watching the movie. You watch a movie, but your knowledge to the bloggers and for bloggers. I agree with the 5 points it. But do not forget, that the html scripts need to be addressed in order to better SEO. thank you for the five-point it.
