Sometimes writing a blog post can be difficult. Finding the right words to transfer your thoughts to a post isn’t always the easiest and you might find yourself sitting looking at a screen for far too long without any results. And I’m pretty sure that none of us really has the time to waste on blank pages, and empty screens.
Here are four tips to make writing a blog post quick and easy!
Have an idea: If you have an idea already in your head, and know that basic format and approach you are going to take BEFORE you sit down at the computer it’ll probably be much easier to start writing. It’s a common issue (like stage fright) to have your brain freeze when you sit down to write if you don’t already have at least an idea of what you want to write about before sitting down.
Keep it simple: Keep it simple and to the point. People like to see what they came to see and than leave. Nobody wants to sit reading something for forever-no matter how good the writing and content is. Use 300 to 500 words per a post, and no more or else it gets too long.
Bullet point: Pull out all the bullet points. It makes certain sections stand out, among your writing, highlights (without using the highlights). However, make sure when using bullet points you keep your paragraphs short. About five to six sentences. Say what you want without boring your readers.
Know what you want: When writing if you know what message you want to get across first, then getting it down in writing will be ten times easier. Think about what you want your post to be about. The newest iPhone, how to cook a steak, the latest news, a book review, etc, have an idea and then get busy typing!
By using these tips you’ll be able to write fast and have awesome blog posts that people can read in five minutes or less.
