So, You’re Writing Your First Blog Post, huh?!

Every time a new project, event or activity comes along, these questions come to mind:

How? What? Where?

Writing a blog post is no different, especially for first-time bloggers.

Not due to a lack of ideas, but with an avalanche of topics rushing down one’s head,

there is a tendency to be overwhelmed, so

Now, you are more calm and with a clearer, uncluttered mind, you can think a lot better.

Ideas will flow naturally like rivers and streams

And you’re all set.

TOPIC

The focal point from which you will build around and expound in the body of your blog post.

From the ideas you want to write about, choose the one that you are most passionate and/or most knowledgeable about.

More importantly, consider which will be valuable to your audience.

Don’t focus on having a great blog. Focus on producing a blog that’s great for your readers.” – Brian Clark

INTRODUCTION

With your topic of choice, create a great headline, one that works.

Provide a catchy intro, one that will capture the attention of your audience to go on reading further into your blog post.

BODY

The core of your blog post.

This is where you should pour out your energy in building up your topic.

Fill it with useful, valuable information in order to sustain the interest of your audience.

Time is of great value to them, so should it be to you.

Keep what you promised in the intro. Deliver what you made them expect.

Give them what they came for, so they will anticipate your next blog posts

CONCLUSION

As you move towards the end of your blog post, having met the audience’s expectations,

this is the time for a Call-to-Action,

a follow-through to everything you’ve built up in the body of your post.

This will serve as a transition leading to your succeeding blog posts.

So, what are you waiting for?

Go, write that blog post NOW!
