10 Amazing Tips To Write Your First Blog Post In 3hrs

=> 1. Don’t be a Perfectionist 

None of the article published so far on every blog is a Perfect blog post. So my friend, Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Just start writing. Have some reference articles from nearly 4-5 articles relevant to your blog post.

Download the articles. Switch off your Wi-Fi.

Spend some time reading those Reference articles.

Then Clock your timings. You have your resources. You must have something unique valid points in your mind.

MindMap all the points. Just Connect the Dots.

Stop your clock (Only 2hrs for writing your article)

Then Clock your time. Spend 20-30mts on making your Preview image & essential images needed for your blog post.

So totally we spend nearly 21/2 hours. Keep the rest of 30 minutes for proofreading.

But take some break. Have a cup of coffee before proofreading your article. If possible assign the task to someone else.

=> 2. Share your Stories

People react favorably to real stories by real people. Your words can show people where you came from, your inspirations and what your work means to you, and can inspire readers to connect with their own passions and tell their own stories. Your stories can inspire, share perspective, provide valuable information, make people smile, and create a positive vibe for your brand.

=> 3. Be Yourself, Don’t teach like a University Professor

Just Be yourself when engaging with your audience. Don’t be like a strict professor with a lot of definitions. Just imagine if you are elaborating a topic to your close friend… Write like that in a simple manner. Use Grammarly tool to assist you.
Use more Pronouns to narrate them better. For Example I, We, Him, Them, etc.,

=> 4. Understand the PainPoint of the audience

Simply Deliver what they need, More than what you know. Use more images, Infographics (If needed).

Use bulletins for relevant positions. Don’t enlarge the paragraph. Don’t go too large on the article, At the same time at least write with a minimum of 900Words.

Use More Subheadings, Relevant images in your article to increase the retention rate of your readers.

=> 5. Use Tiny para’s

People don’t have enough time to read all your content. Online content needs to be more easily digestible than a print product. That means shorter sentences, shorter paragraphs, and shorter posts, and breaking up your posts with subheads and bullet points. Readers are fickle and will move on if they are faced with content that’s hard to follow, especially on mobile devices where they may have limited viewing space.

=> 6. Address a specific audience

Good blog posts are targeted to a particular audience. So, before you start developing content, decide who you are selling to and what you are selling.

If you are selling to decision makers in the publishing industry, write a blog post that targets their specific needs. If you are a web developer, try to make the content professional but not too technical because you want buyers to know the benefits of using your services.

If you are an affiliate marketer, then specifically understand the pain points of the newbies & Start sell without selling.

=> 7. Do Your Research

One of the biggest secrets professional bloggers (myself included) don’t want you to know is that we don’t actually know everything. Truth be told, sometimes we don’t know anything about a topic before we sit down to write about it.

We always make some research from our mentor’s blog & trim some valuable points. We do just 60% of copywriting stuff in each article.

Use LongTailPro for better keyword research to get better results for your blog title. Else go to Google Keyword Planner for free.

This doesn’t mean that all bloggers are insincere fakers. On the contrary, many bloggers’ natural curiosity is what makes them great at what they do. If you blog for a living, you have to be comfortable jumping from one topic to the next, even if you don’t know anything about it. What allows us to do this, and to write authoritatively about subject areas that are new to us, is knowing how to properly research a blog post.

So, Learn, Educate, Engage & Sell …

=> 8. Use Images Relevantly & Effectively

Writing for the web is an entirely different animal than writing for print. Oftentimes, people simply don’t have the time, will, or ability to focus on lengthy blog posts without some visual stimulation. Even a well-formatted blog post consisting solely of text is likely to send your reader screaming back to Reddit or Twitter within minutes, which is why it’s so important to include the right image in your posts.

Learn how to select the right image for your blog post

=> 9. Use Google Docs to write your article

Safety first right?

WordPress may crash anytime while you writing. Or due to the power cut, many reasons. You have to hit “Save Draft” button every time. But In case of Google Docs, there are a lot of advantages. You can share it with your proofreader.

It’s easy to make changes & safe to store too. So I recommend Gdocs.

=> 10. Edit, Proof-Read & Format your blog post

You’re not quite done yet, but you’re close! The editing process is an important part of blogging — don’t overlook it. Ask a grammar-conscious co-worker to copy, edit, and proofread your post, and consider enlisting the help of The Ultimate Editing Checklist (or try using a free grammar checker, like the one developed by Grammarly). And if you’re looking to brush up on your own self-editing skills, turn to these helpful posts for some tips and tricks to get you started
