5 Super Simple Steps to Building an Unforgettable Blog Post

Once upon a time, one could could simply sit down and write a blog post in 15 minutes or so. Well, sorry to disappoint, but those good ol’ days are over.

Today, there are hundreds of millions of blogs that are competing for your readers’ attention. To stand out, you need to take your blogging game to a new level.

And the best way to do that is to focus relentlessly on the fundamental mechanics of writing a great blog post.
Don’t just hope you’re writing something that maybe somehow it’s going to go viral. Learn to consciously build great content, brick-by-brick, and watch your posts gain the attention they deserve.

Ready to get started?

Here are the building blocks of any great blog posts.

1. Feelings are your foundation

Envision what kind of experience you want to deliver to your reader. Weave a story.

You’ll want to plan your post to trigger your readers’ emotions. Use vivid imagery to punch up the power of your narrative.

Think of a roller-coaster ride. Starting from the headline, all the way to the ending, you need to be aware of the feeling and emotions you are translating into words.

2. Don’t forget: it’s all about the reader

Blog readers don’t have much of an attention span. If you want them to return to your blog you’ll need to deliver practical information that they can use. You can develop your “reader-focused” skills by doing a little research on your reader before you outline your post.

Use your research to pinpoint the topics that your reader wants to learn more about. Fill your posts with solutions and your readers will keep coming back.

3. Start strong

After the headline, your opening sentence is critical to enticing your reader.

Your readers should know right away what they will get by reading your post.

  2. I’ve been reading my blog to my husband before posting. One day he said, you need to talk to your readers in your posts. Imagine you were reading this yourself. What would you get out of it? That was great advice that I now use each time I write.

    Thanks for sharing! I always get something out of each read.
