Write Posts That Are Grounded In Reality:

Your readers will connect with content that’s related and relevant. Some say that those two are the secret sauce to building a popular blog. So strive you draw your readers in by using real life situations in your posts. For instance, if you’re a Search Engine Consultant, you can use case studies to discuss some of the problems your clients faced and detail some of your methods for resolving those problems – of course you’ll need to sanitize the names of your clients if they want to remain anonymous.

Be Concise:

Reading on the web is a lot different from reading a book. Huge blocks of paragraphs that say nothing are off-putting so leave lots of white space in your posts. Write shorter paragraphs and make every word count.

Use Headers and Bullets:

Building on the above point, sub headers, bullets, and bold text draw reader’s eyes to specific points on the post. So even if they don’t read the entire post, they’ll get the information they need if you use headlines to draw their attention to specific points.

Craft Catchy Titles:

The title of the post is what draws people to your content, so it’s the most crucial part of your post. Your title should be the right length, so it fits on the search engine result page and sticks in your readers’ minds. Throw out a question every once in a while and see what happens. How-to and sensational titles also draw people in. You can check you Title, Meta description with Google SERP Snippet Optimization Tool.

Don’t Forget Multimedia:

Images, videos, slideshows, infographics and custom-made graphics will increase user engagement so use them as much as you can. With the emergence of social sites like Pinterest, you’ll increase the visibility of your posts when users share your images.

Write With Purpose:

Finally, you must write with your audience in mind. Every word should be directed at that one person you want to connect with. Start with a purpose and make sure that every word brings you one step closer to achieving that purpose.

Hi Edward & Ahsan,

Yes indeed, all these points mentioned are required to write a good blog that we all need. The most important is a catchy title that is what attracts people to your blog. Thereafter it’s content which should be of quality – not to mention the apt images that are required on any blog.

You do need the social media and comments to publicize your blog. Of course, many other things are also required but these remain the basic.

Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend :)

I think another important thing to keep in mind is that don’t write for the sake of it. Sometimes pressure to produce something gets to you and you start churning out sub quality articles and that is precisely the point you start loosing readers.

I agree with you. This causes writer’s block so moderation is the key. Just write naturally.
