Starting your own blog can be exciting. It opens up new options and lets you write about something you love. Before starting your own blog there are a few things you should know about to make sure your blog reaches its potential!

Two Main Rules Of Blogging

1. #Skimming

We all do this. We scroll through readings and something that catches our attention we read it thoroughly. So, you need to ensure that your topic is catchy and also not too long which might bore the reader. Keep your blog articles entertaining, short and sweet.

2. #Screen vs Paper

It is a known fact that it is harder to read on a screen than on paper. So, make sure your blog articles are easy to read and not too complicated, otherwise, you will lose your clients interest and may prevent them from visiting your blog again.

Tips On Writing A Good Blog

1. #Format

Formatting your blog is the first thing you must keep in mind before publishing it. This makes your blog easier to scan and thus reading becomes easier.

2. #Use dividers

Dividing your blog content using heading and subheadings will help break down your blog easily and in turn, make it easier for the reader to read your blog. People usually read the headings and decide whether they are interested in reading rest of the content so make sure your headings are related to your content and are catchy!

3. #Lists are very important

Listing certain content in the form of numbered or bullet points is an easier way to get content across to your readers.

4. #Keep it short

Short and simple is the key. If you go on and on about a certain point it is very likely that your reader will lose interest and skip the rest of your blog as well. So keep it concise and to the point.

5. #Font

Font type and size can make or break a blog. How many times have you picked up a book and because of the small size or unreadable font left it? You don’t want that to happen with your blog right? So ensure you choose an easily readable font size and type.

6. #SEO friendly

Ensure that you make your blog search engine friendly. Blogging for SEO will ensure that you optimize and use the marketing potential of a blog which will, in turn, help you earn money. So this is extremely important if you are looking for earning money from your blogs.

Basic Blog Structure

  • Have a ‘Header’ containing the menu to help in navigation through your blogging website
  • Next, the main area for content.
  • You can opt for a sidebar with a scroll of your older posts or available actions on your site.
  • A separate section for your social media links
  • Finally, a ‘footer’ containing your contact details, disclaimer and, other such formalities.

So what are you waiting for? Get set blogging!
