Important tips to Write a Blog Post
Here we are describing a few steps regarding how to writing a blog post.
Before you initiate to write your blog post, you must have a clear idea of your target audience.
You have to focus on:
What they want to know?
Understand what you do about the readers’ interest when you come up with a specific subject for your blog post. To exemplify, your readers are looking to open a small business, you probably don’t need to provide them information about what the small business is, as they have prior knowledge about this.
The following questions can assist you to get started:
What questions have been asked by your clients?
What the recent news or data you can add to your blog?
What your competitors have been talking about so that you can cover all the types?
It needs many efforts
Don’t be fooled into thinking that it is quite easy
You must put your efforts and energy to write, edit, research and source images, etc. Once it gets published, you need to spend some time promoting your blog on different networks. You must always be prepared to work harder. Moreover, in the beginning, phase, you must be prepared not to have many audiences. It could take longer like even months to get established, especially in this case if you have chosen a crowded niche.
Not an effortless way to make money
Definitely, you could have started or even could be thinking to make blogs after watching numerous bloggers online who are making tons of money through their blogs.
It is not weird!
You must also consider that it took years to reach that point and need constant work and patience. If you want to earn money quickly, there are other faster ways. You must start blogging for the right reasons and if earning follows, it’s perfectly great.
Choose a Topic
There are millions of bloggers, the perfect way to stand out in the noise is to choose a topic and stick to it. By doing so, you could easily identify your readers and can verify “how you must target them”.
You must choose the topic for which you have the knowledge and you are passionate about since this is the method by which you can produce engaging and good content. It will be also easier to maintain the sustainability of motivation while you blog about something for which you are passionate.
Trust me there will be certain times when you will struggle with self-doubt and motivation.
Initiate with small
If you are a first-time blogger, it could be possible that you are unsure about how things will move on. There are two possibilities after weeks or months of blogging, either you will love it, or will feel “blogging is really not your cup of tea”.
Therefore, I always suggest starting with a small and free site that does not have fancy bells and whistles. Examples of free platforms are WordPress and Blogger where you can start completely free.
Now explore these a little, and try to figure if this works for you or not. If “yes” then you may move with commitments such as paid plans and self-hosting.
Make great content and go social
Your audience gets attracted to your blog, not due to just a funny blog name or theme.
Then what is it?
The best method to build an audience is to put well written and engaging content and this must be done consistently. No doubt, interesting content fetches the attention of readers and make them share with others, and gradually expand your reach.
Being a blogger, you must also interact with other bloggers, this expands your network and reaches a large audience.
The community of bloggers is well-knitted and they regularly help each other by guest posts, social shares, and lineouts, etc.
Proofread the content
You’re not done till here, but are closer! You must not overlook the editing process of blogging. You must copyedit and proofread your post, you may also consider using online free grammar tools.
Pay attention to SEO practices as well, you must ensure the following aspects:
- You made use of the main keyword phrase or other keywords at least once throughout the body of the post and ensure to link it to relevant pages.
- Don’t repeat the keyword number of times, your post could get spammed by repeating the keyword more than five times.
If you are sure that your post is optimized, then move on to post it.
Finally, feel proud of the post that you have created and share it with the world. Share it on all social media networks. One most crucial thing to remember before starting a blog is to be real, and let your readers know who you are. Develop your own style of writing and raise your voice for what you feel, don’t be afraid.
