7 Writing Hacks to Add Some Spice to Your Blog Posts4 min read

Well, lucky you, I’ve compiled a short list of things you can do to spice your blog posts.

1. Hunt down and remove excess words.

Delete unnecessary words. Don’t use ten words if five will do. Always keep in mind the essence of what you are trying to say.

2. Tell a story.

Keep in mind that folks are in love with stories because they teach us about learning. Funny, right? We love to read stories because we ourselves want to change, want to be able to change, want to be told that we can slay the dragon.

That’s what stories are all about.

3. Be intentional about the structure of your blog post.

4. Make it personal.

No one cares what you know unless they know how much you care. Especially strangers on the web.

5. Be an artist.

Write in such a way that your personality shines through. It’s not what you write, but how you write it. It’s about being confident in your abilities.

6. Be bold enough to write your truth, even if everyone disagrees with you.

What better way to elicit an emotional response than by writing about the things you truly think to be true?

7. Connect seemingly unrelated dots.

Like a Don Draper guide to blogging. Or even Donald Trump’s guide to blogging.

Think about it this way: what dots can you connect that will be relevant in your niche? One of the dots has to be from a different niche, something that nobody ever thought to be relevant to your niche.

  1. ‘…has allowed be to perform well as a blogger these past seven…’ – is the word ‘be’ in the context should be ‘me’. I am confused. Not to be picky. 🙂

  2. Good stuff! Especially the part about telling a story. Most people think in stories and word pictures. It’s easy to forget to transfer this into writing. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. Exactly.

      What are we but a bunch of stories put together? The story of who we are, the story of our loves, our passions, our failures. The story we keep telling ourselves about why we can do something (or can’t do it.)

  4. Thank you for this Cristian, this definitely helps. I recently just started a blog 2 weeks ago after I finally mustered up the courage to start one. I will use your tips moving forward!
