Tips on writing a great blog

Last Update: October 20, 2016

Hi everyone, I watched Pat Flynns video on you tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgdY6_y12ts and found it so helpful and thought it may be a good idea to break it down in points and share it


Know what you are writing about.

  • Outline your Topics
  • Ask questions
  • Survey your audience

Transformation.

  • What is particular aim of blog

Outline your thoughts.

  • Create a Skeleton frame of your blog (create notes)
  • Outline your points backwards from transformation
  • Create Supporting points

Start engaging readers

  • Start strong
  • Start with as story
  • Ask a question
  • Start with a fact or concept
  • Don’t write in WordPress- you could lose your work when you hit publish (I use MS word)
  • Just write- Clean up later
  • Be you- Write the way you talk

Relevant and interesting title

  • Title that generates curiosity
  • Simple description of your content

Make your blog Scannable

  • Break your content into tiny paragraphs
  • Use headers and subleaders
  • Bold and italics

Visuals

  • Use relevant images
  • Videos
  • Don’t overdo it

Call to Action

  • Typically, your CTA come at end of your post but can be anywhere within your blog
  • Don’t overdo it. One or 2 links

Proof read

  • Read it aloud
  • Get a friend to do it for you.

There is no such thing as the perfect blog

  • Don’t waste too much time
  • Don’t be a perfectionist
  • You can always make changes later

Cheers
