Create A Blog Post With These 5 Tips
When was the last time you read a great blog post? Crafting quality content for your blog becomes easier as you get more experience and find your voice as a writer. Writing a blog post can be intimidating if you have never done it before. The key is to organize yourself, figure out where you are going and break down the writing process into a list of smaller tasks.
1. Figure Out Why You Are Writing – And Who You Are Writing For
There are a few questions you need to answer before you get started. You might already have an idea for your topic, but you should narrow it down to answering a specific question. Blog posts are easier to ready if they are short. Ask yourself who you are writing for, what kind of information these readers need to find and how you will convey this information.
2. Brainstorm Some Ideas And Create A Structure
Get started on your blog post by writing down all your ideas. Look for a common thread you can follow to tell a story and connect all these ideas. If some of your ideas do not seem to work with your main topic, put them aside for now and try including them in another blog post later on. Each idea you want to include in your blog post will become a paragraph or a bullet point. Look for a logical way to present your information so your readers can easily follow you.
3. Get To Writing!
This is the tough part but you will find that writing a blog post is a lot easier if you focus on one section of the post at a time. If possible, look for facts, external sources or media that can be added to support what you say in each paragraph. Use your own words to explain each point and remember that it is usually best to keep things short and straight to the point since a lot of readers will skim through your content. If you are having a hard time writing, imagine that you are explaining something or telling a story to a friend.
4. Find A Great Title
You can’t have a great blog post without a great title. People won’t click on your blog post if the title doesn’t catch their attention. Your title needs to be original, tell people what they will find in your blog post and make them want to read more. Be careful not to promise something you are not offering and not to sound like a click bait article.
5. Proofread And Edit
It is usually best to take a break and let your blog post sit for a while before you start proofreading and editing. Look for grammatical mistakes, typos and other issues that make your writing look unprofessional. Try shortening some of your sentences if you feel that you are rambling on and don’t hesitate to remove words or sentences if they don’t add anything to your post. Look for an easier way to say things and ask yourself if your blog post would be interesting and helpful if you were a reader who wanted to learn about the topic you are writing about.
