How to Write Blog Posts

Hi Kids,

How’s tricks?

Time for the weekly #socialbloggers roundup post. The topic was ‘How to Write Blog Content’. The questions were about the process you go through when writing blog posts, how you make it easy for your audience to read and around titles.

I wrote a post a few days ago about my personal writing process. I tend to have several posts in various stages at once and will take a day to finalise them and schedule them so I have around 1 weeks worth at a time.

Writing blog content is very different from writing essays or books. A lot of people who read blogs tend to want to consume a lot of information quickly. Especially if they’ve come across your blog via Google while searching a specific question or topic. They want easy access to the answer, a quick solution to their problem.

I’m a massive fan of making my posts easy to read. I break up paragraphs often and will stick in a few headings to break up the post so the reader can scroll down and easily find the information they are trying to access.

I’m also a fan of making things very clear. I try to get straight to the point and if I find myself babbling about something irrelevant (which happens often!) I’ll cut it out.

I don’t believe long, complex sentences with fancy words are for blogs, unless you have a blog about creating writing/prose. But that’s just my preference.
