Raining Cats And Blogs: 6 Ideas For Easier Blog Writing

6 Ideas For Easier Blog Writing

6 Ideas For Easier Blog Writing


 Do you rewrite your draft blog over and over? Does your original blog idea sometimes seem buried in your post so much that you can’t even tell what you wrote about anymore? Below are some ideas to make blog writing a little easier. At least they help me!

1. Write your Headline First- Your headline is the reason why most people click on your blog and actually read it. It should be as Interesting as possible!

2. Write Your Subheads Next - This will help you with the structure of your post.

3. Write a Compelling Opening Paragraph - Your opening paragraph must draw in the reader so they will continue reading your post. Make them WANT to continue reading!

4. Use Captions With Your Photos - People are most likely to read captions first so don’t miss the opportunity to communicate your message with the captions.

5. Use Bullet Points - A lot of people tend to read on portions of your content. They will almost always scan the headlines and read bullet points.

6. WOW Them With Your Closing Paragraph - Include a call to auction whenever possible and inspire your readers to take action!

Remember to never disappoint your readers. Make sure you deliver the message you laid out in your opening paragraph and in your headlines! Keep your readers coming back for more!

Great tips. One of my goals is to write more blogs this year. Hopefully I will get there.

Excellent, Sheila!   My only addition:  When you Start the Blog, go ahead and load your Photos and images.  You can re-arrange and position them after you complete the Text.

Blogging 101!  Thanks for the reminders.  I will start blogging on a regular basis soon.  Needed some time to set up my 2013 business. Oh...BTW do you like cats?  Just kidding!!

al lgood points...I made it a goal to blog more in 2013 - especially since I have had a number of new clients as a result of them reading my blog.

Nice way to simplify. I do get caught up in the details way too soon. I need to just "get it out of my head" and save it as a draft.

I find it easier to write the text and then insert photos. Another thing, punch it up with photos and graphics. I studied journalism, and we were told "gray is not good." In other glass artwords, break up

the b & w print with bold type and COLOR and pictures, if you have them.

Good tips! Anything to help get that elusive blog post out of my head and into the computer is always welcome!

Great job.  Your blog is AKA English 101.  If we write it like the USA Today writes their articles, we're home free.  Shorter is better and the first paragraph needs to tell the story.  Great blog!

Hi Sheila, great outline for wringing a great post. We often just throw a title up and come back to it later.

Be clever,  be amusing, stop rewriting because it's no longer what you started out with.

Posted by Lyn Sims, Schaumburg IL Real Estate (RE/MAX Suburban) about 6 years ago

Thank you for posting.  The person you described sounds like me!  Many drafts and revisions and time spent.

Posted by Debbie Cook, Silver Spring and Takoma Park Maryland Real Estate (Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc) about 6 years ago

And I read your post because it was easy on the eyes, quick and to the point.  I like bullet points, headings, list, big fonts,  all are great.

Posted by Gene Riemenschneider, Turning Houses into Homes (Home Point Real Estate) about 6 years ago

Great advice Sheila, important writing tips that I know but often forget in my hurry to get something written.

Hi Sheila,  you've never disappointed me with your blog writing suggestions and they've always paid off.  I've learned so much from you!

Good tips for helping me focus.  I'm fairly new to blogging so I listen to all the tips I can.  Thanks.
