How To Write For Blogs
Whether you are writing for a blog, writing a book or writing for social media, you can use the same general writing plan.
I think what is most important is you write about a topic you’re passionate about, I love writing to share ways to help you with your business.
This is what motivate me to keep writing one article after another, I just wish there were more hours in the day and I had more energy to write more often than I do.
Here is the basic writing plan most writers use, follow this as a guide and you can not go wrong.
- Write For Your Readers
- Research Your Topic
- Good Descriptive Title
- Engaging Introduction
- Organize Content
- Good Conclusion
Make Your Content Personal
Give your writing and blog a personality, I like to experiment until I find the right writing style.
The more unique you can make your articles, the longer your readers will remember your blog.
How will you know when you find the right unique style, all you have to do is research how many people are visiting your blog regularly.
When people are returning over and over, that is a very good sign you have something special going on.
- Keep A list Of Potential Blog Posts
- Put In the Extra Work To Make Your Post Engaging
- Break Up Your Article Into Small Paragraphs
- Use Images Which Relates To Your Blog
- Good Solid Conclusion
Keeping Your List
I use to be a photographer, I never went any place without my trusty Canon camera.
Today I am a writer, not a photographer, so I never am without a pad and pen to write any ideas which jump out at me on my daily travels.
You will be surprised some of your best ideas will be when your not really thinking about writing, after a while, it just become a habit when an idea hits you to write it down.
If you’re doing a good job brainstorming you will fill a notebook with ideas very quickly, I usually go through on the average two- three subject notebooks per month.
Of course, many of my ideas do not ever get used. You just never know which ideas might be right for your blog at that time, I also do a lot of researching online on search engines to find out what people are searching for.
Introduction And Body
I do my very best to write a nice descriptive introduction to give my readers an idea what is in store for them in my post, many times this will determine whether a reader continues to read your post or moves on to a new blog.
People today are not into reading long paragraphs of content, I try to keep my paragraphs short and to the point to keep them interested.
Your body should provide your reader’s information which helps them solve a problem, such as this article is my intention to help you write for your blog. I feel short paragraphs on several topics is less overwhelming for my readers, too much information in one paragraph can overload your reader with too much information.
Images And Closing
As you can see today I am using image quotes to break up my paragraphs, I hope this is appealing enough for you.
I am using writer quotes for my images, they are free to use and most people enjoy reading inspirational quotes.
This is just my new style I am trying out right now, you can experiment with many different styles or looks until you find the one which works best for you.
Your closing can be pretty much anything you desire, I usually try to make mine friendly and invite you to leave comments at the bottom of my post page.
Product Of The Day
Another crazy idea I am fiddling with right now, I am sharing with my readers one product in each of my articles.
Since my website is not an advertising page, I figure one product is not going to offend too many people.
I also try to find a product which related to the article I wrote, something which will benefit my readers.
What Is On My Mind Today
Since I am experimenting with a writing style, I would appreciate very much if some of your would leave me comments on how you like or dislike this article and how I put it together for you.
Feedback from your readers is the best method to give them what you wish to read, I am all for supplying my readers with whatever they are interested in me writing about.
