A step-by-step guide to writing your first blog post.

After understanding the basic components of a blog, this is the step-by-step guide to writing it.

Choose a topic.

You need a topic before you can write your blog. Your topic should be based on anything you wish to write about but you should select a topic that suits your audience.

To optimize your blogs to generate more traffic, include keywords in your topic.

Write down ideas based on the topic that you have selected.

This is an important tip for writing your work. These ideas are based on what your audience needs and also based on the keywords that you want to include in your work.

The keywords are very crucial for SEO purposes and I suggest you do more research on that. It is important to include every crucial point in your blog hence jotting it down makes it easy to write your blog and ensures that all the important ideas are included.

Outline your work.

Use bullet points to outline what you should include in the blog post and how to want it to flow systematically. Doing this will ensure that you do not leave out any important points that you intend to include in your blog.

Start writing.

In writing your blog, create a draft on your computer and edit to the final copy. Do not write directly from your website as it is important to have a copy in case anything happens and you lose the one on your website.

It is very important to write your original blogs on your own without copying and pasting from others. You do not want your blog post to be flagged as plagiarized.

Simplify your language.

Write like you speak.

In writing your blog, do not complicate your English. Make it as simple as possible for readers to understand your point without having to struggle to find meanings to the words used.

Based on your topic, the reader should understand the point that you’re putting across without having to read your sentences over and over.

Use simple terms as often as possible. This will increase your audience retention time.

Make your blog easy to scan through.

This means that you have to break down your work into smaller subheadings so that your audience can scan through it easily.

If a reader is looking for a specific subtopic in your blog, they can easily find it by skimming across. . Do not write a block of many paragraphs with no title as this will make it hard for your audience to read.

Edit your blog.

Before publishing your work, you have to read it over and over so that you’re able to correct any mistakes and misuse of words.

If you feel like you need to change the use of some words in a sentence, do so and make your work clean from any grammar mistakes.

I would suggest you edit your work after posting it on your website and use Grammarly which can ease the editing process.

Include visuals.

No one wants a plain and boring blog post. Attaching images and pictures as well as videos will give the readers the visual interpretation of events, you are trying to talk about in your blog.

Even if the blog is about personal experience, it is important to include those visuals. The images and videos should be user-friendly and do not trigger any uncomfortable imaginations or interpretations. Do not use graphic images

Add tags before publishing.

Tags are so helpful in search engine optimization. If you use tags, your blog will be pushed to searchable content.

This simply means that if someone types a topic similar to your blog’s, they are most likely to click on your work since it appears on top of the search bar.

Design and select social media graphics.

Social media graphics such as those of Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest are very crucial in that the reader will be able to share them. This will optimize your blog and helps in website SEO.

Link other websites.

This is one major trick that no one talks about. While writing your work, make sure that you link other websites so that while promoting your work, you can reach out to the website owners through email, informing them that you linked their websites.

That way you can politely request them to share your work. Also, in the email, link your work so that they can check it out and share it.

Publish and promote your work.

After publishing, the work is not over yet. You have to promote your work in various ways.

You can promote your work through social media by linking them to your profiles either on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube videos and even Instagram. This way, you will find people who are interested in topics that you’ve based your blog on.

As soon as they are on your website, they can check out other blogs as well.

Another important tip is to always interact with your audience by replying to their comments on your website and all other social platforms.

This is a great way to have them coming back for your content. Also, have them sign up on your mailing list so that they are notified every time you publish a blog.

Pro tip: Practice consistency. Ensure that you can post a blog within a consistent given period. This is a great way to improve your productivity by creating a posting routine.
