Blogging Tips for Beginning Writers

Planning or just starting to create your own blog? We got you covered!

We have compiled some blogging tips from Grammarly and added a few more useful tips that will help you write your blog articles.

Not only that! These tips will certainly help you hook your readers!

1. Create an outline prior to writing.

Don’t sit down to write a blog post without creating a framework. The outline will be your guide and make it much easier to keep the flow of your blog post moving forward.

2. Answer questions.

Your readers have questions. Use a specific question as the title of your blog post. The answer to the question is your blog post content.

3. Use bullet points, numbers, and pictures in your blog post.

Make each blog post easy on the eyes.

4. Be passionate in your writing.

People respond to emotion. Aim for creating some kind of emotional reaction with your reader.

5. Write as if you’re speaking to one reader.

Don’t write to an audience. Act is if you’re talking to ONE person and write accordingly.

6. Learn to become a great storyteller.

The best writers are storytellers. Try to incorporate a story in every blog post.

7. Be honest, humble, and personable.

Nobody likes a know-it-all. The more personality you can show in a blog post, the better. You’re not writing for your college English professor. You’re writing for the amusement of the reader. That’s a big difference.

8. Write for your readers, not Google.

It could be tempting to stuff keywords in the title or copy of your blog post in hopes Google will rank you for a specific keyword. Stop that right now. It’s not 2007 anymore. Today, you need to write for your audience. If your audience finds your content valuable, Google will catch up eventually.

9. Use words and phrases that make people want to stay in your page.

Use words such as: look, bottom line, I can’t emphasise this enough, here’s the deal. They are useful in catching your readers’ attention.

10. Use subheadings than long paragraphs

This way, you will avoid overwhelming your readers with too much words or information and you will also avoid boring them.

11. Agree

Show that you understand their problem, concerns or dilemma or that you share the same thoughts as they are on the topic you are writing.

12. Promise

Assure them that they will benefit from reading your blog article.

13. Preview

Let them know that’s in it for them in your blog article.

 

There you go! Now go write your blog and nail it!
