These tips are designed to help you write your first blog article, create a template for successful blog writing, and get more readers.

Structure

The overall structure of your blog article is very important for readability. It is similar to the inverted pyramid of journalism, but here are some differences that will help your blog writing:

  • The title needs to describe what the article is about and be concise.
  • Keep the most important information first.
  • Create an opening paragraph that is warm and inviting.
  • Subheads help the content be more readable for web users.
  • Write lists, they are easier to skim.
  • Your lists don't have to contain every reason for doing something.
  • Make sure to close with a call to action.

Writing Style

Writing a blog article is not the same as other writing. Your writing doesn't have to be incredibly formal. Here are some ways to help your blog writing style:

  • Write in first person.
  • Use more active writing.
  • Make the writing feel personal for your reader.
  • Write concisely.
  • It's okay to ask your readers close-ended questions, it helps with flow.
  • The last sentence before the list should flow into the list.
