Creating one exciting blog post after another and keep on doing so weeks after weeks is a challenge that not everyone can stands against. That is the reason why so many blogs start breaking at the seams just after couple of months, if not after couple of weeks. But there is a piece of good news, and the news is that you can now learn to create one killer blog post after another, and that too in a handful of simple steps.
Writing killer blog posts
What people need?
This is important. Finding what your blog readers want from the blogs they read will help you construct a blog post for your blog. You can use poll results, forum questions, and blog comments, etc., to find out the information need of your readers.
Who will read it?
Do you know who the ideal reader of your blog is? Where she lives, and what all she does in his life? Is she a teacher or a student? Is she old or young?
These are some of the questions you need to ask to define your target audience. Defining your ideal target audience is important in order to decide the tone of voice to use to write blog posts. It also helps in word selection.
The process of writing a high-quality starts with researching the topic you have chosen. The more time you will spend doing the research the better will be the output, but it does not mean you should spend your lifetime researching the topic.
You need to study the topic from every point of view to get a complete picture, which is not possible unless you spend some time in researching about the topics.
Use the research data and create a first draft of the blog post keeping the above factors in the mind. If you want to create a blog post that pulls visitors then you have to get off the cycle of publishing anything that gets typed out by you, and start treating each blog post as important.
You should not consider your first draft as the final blog post. Instead, you should read the blog post and make the necessary changes before publishing it.
Pay attention to details, as the beauty lies in details. Rushing from one blog post to another will not get the desired result, but working painstakingly through each post will definitely drive your readers crazy.
