Blogging Tips

Are you having trouble with blogging? Are you at a loss for article subjects?

 

Here are a few blogging tips. There are subjects all around you. Just be aware of your surroundings. You can use newspaper headlines, people watching (what you’ve observed someone doing or making, etc.) or what someone did at the grocery or department store. You can also research information online. It’s your blog. You can talk about whatever you wish. If you have a niche-specific blog you probably want to make the article relative to that niche.

 

While making the article relative to your niche you can use an analogy. For example, you observed someone buying flowers. You can talk about the type and color, how carefully they were handled and discuss the customer service. Then if your niche is internet marketing, you can relate this to products for your customers and your follow up customer service.

 

Once you think of a topic make an outline just like you did for school papers. The outline should include your title, key points, a conclusion and a resource box.

 

Title
The title should be in bold type and it should be engaging. It should set the tone for the entire article.

 

Headings
Your key points become your headings. I suggest at least three key points. They should also be in bold type.

 

Conclusion
Your conclusion is a summary of your article and anything else you wish to state.

 

A good length for a post is 400 to 450 words. Of course, the length is determined by the purpose of the article.

 

Now you have a template that you can use for every blog post. You can save it in outline form and use it over and over. It contains a bolded title, several bolded key points related to your subject, and a conclusion. You can also include a resource box with a bit of information about yourself and a link to your site or products. Use these blogging tips to make your work easier, and use your blog as a list-building funnel.
