Are you looking to be a blogger?
You do not like writing. Oh! It seems like a significant problem.
If you don’t like writing, you won’t be spending enough time in front of the keyboard, which leads to poor content. Bloggers know the significance of quality content; there are many advantages to having high-quality articles.
High-quality articles help make a bond with your readership because you provide value to them, which leads to more chances that your post will be shared on social media platforms.
Let’s get back in love with writing by following these ten tips you will get back on track.
1. Follow Your Passion
Most of the famous bloggers know that writing quality and rich content will assist in gathering more readers. But if you do not like to write, start with something you are passionate and knowledgeable about – some great examples are technology reviews, parenting, crafts, or cooking whatever you want.
Anything you choose, it is great to write some posts every week, hence select a subject you can write with your existing knowledge.
2. Make a List of 20 Blog Post Ideas
Take some time to write ideas for blog posts start with 20 different articles. This short exercise will assist you in the future when you are stressed to come up with new ideas.
The quickest way to stop writing is not having anything to write about, so make sure you jot down a few ideas at a time and save them for a rainy day. It is the best way for new bloggers to keep track of their overall blog.
3. Think About How to Make Unique Content
There is a diversity of topics on the internet. There is no chance that you are the only individual who is blogging about your selected topic. But, never feel discouraged on writing because your content is unique and relevant.
You can check out the other blogs in a similar category, and considering how you can write original content on your blog.
Think about these questions:
• Is there a niche within your selected subject?
• Is there any section other blogs are lacking?
What I mean by this is; You are interested in fitness, can you dive deeper and look into CrossFit or callisthenics.
Nearly every niche you can dive deeper to make your content unique and exciting.
4. Never Proofread your Post Straight Away
While you finish your post, leave it on your computer, go to the beach or make a cup of tea after you have finished writing.
You want this break from your content because its still present in your mind. Having a clearer mind will help you find corrections.
Hence, coming back later with a fresh mind to make sure that you have proofread the post appropriately.
5. Focus Attention on the Opening Lines
Try to make your starting lines attractive – the first lines of your blog are extremely important to keep the readers attracted to your post. If you write an exciting and engaging first line, there are more chances to gather the readers so that they keep reading your blog to the end.
There are multiple methods to do this – you can start with a question, or investigate them by saying anything surprising.
6. Find Your Writing Voice
Some of the famous bloggers have a particular style they use when writing. Making your blog posts consistent in formatting and wording will assist you in producing content in a manner you enjoy.
Consider who you are writing for and how you want to write. Is it more formal or playful ????do you want to appear serious, relaxed, or light-hearted?
7. Keep Yourself on a Topic
Re-read your article after finishing each paragraph to make sure that your blog stays useful and focused.
It can assist you in making your writing specialized, as well as making your posts easy for the readers.
8. The Headline Matters
Usually, bloggers who are running successful and renowned blogs use eye-catching and exciting titles.
The title is the primary thing that your readers will see, and will find out if they read the article or don’t. There are multiple ways to make a catchy title, you can make use of a heading that results in a debate, making it thought-provoking or amusing, or you can ask an inquiry.
Look at popular blogs like Buzzfeed and look at what they are doing.
There a helpful headline generator called Blog About that is excellent… I may of used it for this post.
9. Make Your Posts Evergreen
Blogs usually include evergreen posts, which means your content doesn’t have a sell-by date and is still relatable to readers’ years later. The timeless posts are best for bloggers because the post will start receiving shares, comments, and likes without any provocation.
There are many chances that you can make evergreen posts, so think about writing a short list of timeless subjects in the niche.
10. Emphasize the Main Point of Your Post
Most bloggers work hard to come up with unique and new ideas continuously for blog posts. But, without including a focus point, your post is not as beneficial as it can be.
At present, do you know the subject of your blog? Start probing yourself about the following questions if you are looking to check a point in your post:
• What is your blog about?
• Are you giving a benefit to your reader? If yes, then how?
Hint: A benefit could be answering their questions or helping them in some way.
A few key takeaways: Writing about what you’re interested in will quickly focus your writing — gather a list of blog topic ideas to help you write when you are stressed and don’t feel like it.
Look at other blogs in your niche to find content to write about. Give your self a break between writing and proofreading. Generate headlines with Blog About and look at BuzzFeed for ideas.
