Writing Tips for a More “Real” Blog

There are so many tips that are important to keep in mind when writing for a blog. There are times when these tips can come in handy, especially when you are looking to have a powerful and meaningful and popular blog. I won’t say that just anyone can write, but it’s not impossible for anyone to open their laptops or get their pen and paper out and write something meaningful. Many people can write.

Does that mean anyone can just have a blog and keep readers interested? I won’t say no, but I will say more likely than not it won’t happen that way.

Finding an important topic to share with your readers is one thing, but to make sure you continue to add relevant information is another. Once you have the right content, here are some tips to keep in mind as you write.

Make Your Writing Scannable

Most of the time people don’t enjoy reading blocks of text, so it helps when the text is easy to read or easy to scan. Some readers look through a lot of different content, and there isn’t always time to read every article or post they are interested in. For this reason, scanning helps to see if the article is something they want to read. Bolded pieces, bullet points, and other differentiation will help the scanning process.

Use Your Titles Effectively

Titles are another way that readers can scan your content, but it’s not only that which makes a title important. How many times have you looked at a title for something and then skipped right over it because it didn’t sound interesting? THAT is exactly why the title is so important. If the reader doesn’t have even the slightest hint of interest, that’s it, they’ll move on.

Keep it Simple

This may be one of the most important…well, at least if you are writing for a blog that is not supposed to be technical or overly-descriptive or full of science or other profession. If you are writing about how simple it is to build something like a firepit in the backyard, then you can’t use overly descriptive words to explain each step, you’ll lose your audience.

So keep it simple.

Again, there are plenty of other tips to keep in mind, but these three will get you started. Pay attention and keep your writing focused.
