The content can be fantastic but if you don't catch their attention with the title they may miss the post altogether. Loved all the tips...thanks!
Feb 12 Posted 4 years ago I'm glad that I've found your socialmediatoday.com web site. Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I'd like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good article... but what can I say... I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.

I would agree that your blog presentation is one of the most important for capturing a reader besides having compelling content. Where most go wrong that are blogging for business is with the title, keywords and just overall knowledge of SEO. If you don't know the basics of SEO it is very hard for a blog work for you if nobody sees it!

Encourage engagement and social sharing are important for blogging. I tried to list out the topics I planned to write about, but when i went back to pick up a topic none of the topics looked exciting or interesting any more.Have you ever felt the same way?

I was going through many websites for learning the simple tips to write the best blog. Your blog was one of the best posts with simple and great tips. I have a point to share with you. I suggest going deeper with the topic that we chose for writing any content. For instance: If we write about apple, we can say about the color, flesh, taste, and the healthy components of it etc… Instead going like apple, Newton, gravitational force, earth, survival, science, spirituality etc… Vertical thinking is required instead of horizontal thinking.

Very informative and instructive post. Being new to blogging I like coming to sites that will help improve my blog in any area necessary. I enjoy writing articles and am passionate about my topic so this is not an area I struggle with. However, whenever I do see and read anything about article writing I always pick up some helpful hints.
One of the things I always do after I have written an article is put it aside for a least a day and then go back and re-read it. Usually need to do a few adjustments before publishing.

This is a great article! Well-written. I have a running list of topics, but more often than not, I end up writing about something else. Maybe it's the constant thought-process that starts stringing ideas together to form a good blog post is the trick! thanks for the tips!
Aug 21 Posted 4 years agoGreat post - written for scanning! Here are a few more thoughts:
- As mentioned, insert images - a cartoon can work well. I commission my daughter to do these, so they are original and specific to the article.
- Occasionally use a relevant succinct quotation as a first line, and paraphrase it in the middle and at then end again to bring focus to the article
- Use relevant anecdotes from real life to bring a touch of reality to what could otherwise be bland advice.
- Be disciplined, and diary in time to write posts. You will be editing again before publishing, as outlined above, so just put aside the time and write!
- Have a moderation policy linked to your blog & make readers aware of your policy on comments, including Spam and pointless self promotion
Thanks for the tips - I'm off now to add to my blog topic list!
