How to write an article for your blog: 7 Simple Steps

 

Here is the general framework you need for writing a blog post (article) that has been broken down into seven steps. You can use this information for writing anything from a blog post to an essay.

1 – Choose a topic you know well

If you pick a topic that interests you but you do not know well then you must do a lot of research on the subject prior to writing. Otherwise, if you know the topic very well then you will have lots to write about. This is a good thing because even if you write an awful lot, you can always cut it down later, whereas if you do not write enough, then you may be forced to “fluff” out the text.

2 – Research the topic to be sure you have all the right angles

Even if you know your chosen topic very well, it is good practice to do a little research into the subject prior to writing. It helps to fill in any gaps in your knowledge; plus it helps to keep your knowledge up to date on the subject. You may also gain a little inspiration as to what angles to cover.

3 – Draft some notes to organize your thoughts

Do not just plough straight in and start writing. Create a few notes first. They can be bullet points of issues to cover if you like, or they can be paragraphs that you will expand upon. Use your notes to organize how you will write your post. Use them to figure out how what issues to will tackle first and how you will conclude your blog post.

4 – Find some reference material and quotes you can add in

This is always a good idea if you are making points that people won’t believe. For example many people believe we eat spiders in our sleep thanks to an email hoax in the 00’s. If you contend that we do not then you will probably have to reference that fact or quote from another text, or people won’t believe you.

5 – Do a first draft of your work

This is a rough draft where you have bashed out chunks of text as they arrived in your thoughts. If you do a rough draft first then it allows you to be creative without having to stop to correct spelling, grammar or sentence structure.

6 – Proofread and post your work

Only once you are sure you have added all of your points and that the piece is finished, should you proofread your work. When you do you should check for spelling, grammar, sentence structure and post flow. It should read very easily, going from one subject to another without leaving open ends (questions), unless the question is part of the text’s purpose.

7 – Engage your readers in the topic you chose.

Don’t just post and forget about it. Answer the comments to your blog post and engage with the online community. Find other blogs that disagree with you and post a comment and a link on their comment sections.

After a career as a professional musician and band leader in the Miami South Florida Area I decided to see if I could make some money with this new internet thing. After years of trial and error I started to get the hang of it and now I am completely financially independent because of my various online businesses. The goal of this blog is to chronicle my continued marketing experiences. I focus on real examples of what works and what does not work. Google does not give us a recipe for getting our sites ranked. We have to use our own experiences to see what actually works rather than theory. I hope you enjoy the blog. Please let us know what you think in the comments area. We appreciate your feedback.
