How to write for blogs.
There are many ways on how to write for blogs and many styles. It all depends on what your blog is about as there are millions of topics to choose from. However, it can be quite challenging at times thinking of what to write on your blog and also what to add visually.
Recently I learned about these blog content ideas and I implement most of these on my blog every time I write. (And if you are new to Blogs and want to learn more about a blogging platform then do check out my Review on a worthy platform here)
Creative Titles and Content
Get attention with your titles. For example if I had of just titled this post “How to Write for blogs” – yes it would be helpful to someone. But saying “How to Write for Blogs – 6 Ideas” suddenly the reader is not only getting ideas but there are 6 possibilities of help for them. So give a bit of thought to your titles. That is the very first thing anyone sees of your post content so make it captivating!
When you are scrolling through the news feed on Facebook or Instagram you generally move at a pace.
Yes, we are all busy!
But if something catches your eye, a Creative title, an image, a profound statement, quote or a video, something just that little bit different we are more inclined to check it out. For content, action pics and videos often capture attention so get creative! Captivate your audience.
Always Be You
As you write in your posts always write as you would speak and please do not “be” like anybody else. Let your personality shine. Writing like you speak comes across as more enjoyable and entertaining and not like a common school essay. People come online to get solutions and to be entertained. Not to be bored.
Be Inspired by Similar Content
The topic you are about to write about – go and Google it and see what comes up. Then be inspired by what the author has written and put your own spin on something similar. And no, that doesn’t mean copy and paste. Just be inspired by what others do.
A good reminder on how to write for blogs is that your style and your personality will be different and relate to a slightly different audience. But stressing again here – never copy!
Share Personal Experiences
Depending on what type of Blog you are creating you also can share what you do with your family. Share the fun you have with your home business. Share your wins. People love seeing others in family situations and are inspired by successful achievements. So be proud – and share!
Quotes – and Quotes with images
Posts with Quotes and quote images are always a crowd favorite. And no matter what niche you are in, you can be guaranteed there is someone noteworthy that has shared a quote or two in that field, whether it be business, sport, arts, philosophy… the list goes on. So definitely start sharing some inspiration with the odd “Quotes” post.
Add Videos to Your Posts
These can be fun, family videos or a video where you are offering value or a solution to your niche. Either way videos command attention (especially if you speaking in them) and if you are regularly doing these your audience will get to know you a whole lot quicker.

And after you have written your posts:
Make sure you post your recent blog post and content regularly to popular sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to name a few.
Also a good measure for your Social media posting;
You can share your recent blog post, info about your day, images, quotes, (and your business adverts occasionally) A good measure is around 5 to 7 updates a day of sharing good quality content. Of course that doesn’t mean 5 of those are of your business opportunity – actually they should never be!
Being active on Social Media and regularly posting will have your audience engaged and looking for your content.
And a big must – connect with your audience. Don’t just put your content up there and expect everyone to like and share. Get commenting and liking other people’s posts. Be engaging if you expect engagement on your content. Connect with new friends and talk to them! It’s an absolute must to be engaging with people on all the social media platforms!
