  1. Ten tips for writing a blog post From www.problogger.net

  2. 1. Make your opinion known • People like blogs, they like blogs because they are written by people and not corporations. People want to know what people think, crazy as it sounds they want to know what you think. Tell them exactly what you think using the least amount of words possible.

  3. 2. Link like crazy. • Support your post with links to other web pages that are contextual to your post. • Link often. This builds credibility and positions you as an expert in your field. People don’t have time to know what others are doing, you should tell them. Linking to other blogs and websites also helps you build a network of associates who will in turn link to your blog.

  4. 3. Write Less • Give the maximum amount of information with the least amount of words. Time is finite and people are infinitely busy. Blast your knowledge into the reader at the speed of sound. • Write clearly (short sentences, only one concept per sentence). No double speak or jargon; no more than one idea in one sentence- don’t make your readers have to think about your meaning. Spoon feed them. Use commas and dashes liberally.

  5. 4. 250 is enough • A long post is easier to forget and harder to get into. A short post is the opposite.

  6. 5. Make Headlines snappy • Contain your whole argument in your headline. Check out National newspapers to see how they do it. • Use a clear headline, and don’t be afraid to make bold statements (but don’t mislead people either). Make it snazzy and use key words.

  7. 6. Include bullet point lists • We all love lists, it structures the info in an easily digestible format.

  8. 7. Make your posts easy to scan • Every few paragraphs insert a sub heading. Make sentences and headlines short and to the point. • Keep it short and simple, sweetie. (KISS). Most people are scanners. You may have a lot to say and think it interesting, and it may be. But people are reading online and out of time. Get to the point quickly. Publishing short posts more frequently is a better format than publishing lengthy articles every few weeks.

  9. 8. Be consistent with your style • People like to know what to expect, once you have settled on a style for your audience stick to it.

  10. 9. Litter the post with Keywords. • Think about what keywords people would use to search for your post and include them in the body text and headers. make sure the keyword placement is natural and does not seem out of place.

  11. 10. Edit your post • Good writing is in the editing. Before you hit the submit button, re-read your post and cut out the stuff that you don’t need. • Proof-read for typos and glaring grammatical errors.
