So you want to write your first blog post? But don't know how to get started, don't you? Writing your first blog post can be challenging, and why you should watch this. In this post 10 Quick Tips to Write a Blog Post for Beginners . I share my ten tips to help you write your first blog post. So let's get started!
1. Planning What to Write
If you have never written a blog post before, the first challenge is deciding what to write about. Choose something that you are passionate about and that you would like to read, chat or listen to. If you are passionate about something, you will also write about it.
2. Use Unique images
Use pictures in your blog posts because 'images speak' and sometimes do better than the thousands of words. So use images in your blog posts to make it more beautiful and professional.
3. Targeting keywords and writing topics knowledge
Before you start writing about a specific topic, you must have prior knowledge of the topic. If you already know about the subject, then read and read the aperture, if not, other blogs, magazine articles, books, anything. Do your research and start writing.
4. Write Unique Post
Most people write their first article in hours, days or days of the week, why? That's because writing for the first time is daunting and many negative thoughts come up. But you don't have to turn around, just keep yourself out of any fear and start writing.
5. Makes article scalable
Continue with relevant content that readers may like. A good piece of content is between 500 words to 1000 words, something less than 500 words is bad for SEO perspective and more than 1000 words bothering readers. Divide it into short paragraphs, move the article so readers don't find it boring.
6. Writing Style
When you start writing a first blog post, it is easy to get attracted to other successful writers and their writing style. But don't imitate anyone's style. Write in your own style, be yourself, because writing style is your trademark.
7. Good Grammar Knowledge
Always think about reading the content when talking directly to the reader and the reader is sitting in front of you. This will make your article interactive and you will speak directly to your reader. Use (me and you) throughout your article.
8. Tips for formatting
If you ever visited those boring websites from the 90's, you would have seen how difficult it is to read those articles, because the author does not format the articles for better readability. Don't be one of those writers. Use and consider appropriate writing formats: use bullet points to emphasize it plain and simple, bold letters, headers such as H1, H2, H3, etc. Proper formatting is important when needed. This is because it makes a good impression and provides a better reading experience.
9. Write headline like h1, h2 etc
9 out of the first 10 people will read the headline and only 3 of them will read the content. So always start with a catchy title that attracts readers' attention. If your title is not catchy, nobody reads your article. In addition, writing the title of your blog ensures that you will not be off topic.
10. Ends with call to action
What should a reader do after reading your message? Don't hang them in the middle, tell them what to do next. Always end with a call to action. The call to action can all be based on your preferences, but no more than one. Qualify to ask their thoughts on the topic, ask a question, or simply share your blog post, such as motivating your reading material to complete your blog post.
