2. Let You Shine Through
Go ahead and write your blog how you talk, rather than how you wrote in English class. Besides I think it makes it much more fun and enjoyable to read. I love to hear different phrases and sayings used from people in different countries. Share a little insight into you and what you do too.
3. Keep It Short And Sweet
Yep, keep it short and to the point, with easy to find takeaways. 300 words is enough, which is a relief especially since it was around 1200 words years ago. Now for those of you that are into storytelling, just make it fun or interesting and you’re good to go.
4. Use Subheadings
Subheadings are a great way to break up your content and make it more organized. They also help readers scan your post to find points that interest them.
5. Break It Up
Use those bullet points and white space. Don’t squish it all together. People are more likely to read points rather than a large paragraph. 2-3 sentences per paragraph is ideal.
6. Add All The Photos
This might actually take more time than writing the actual blog post. Make sure to use alt text on your photos too. Without a doubt add in all the photos, preferably your own, but go ahead and use stock photos if needed. (Keep all the extras for your Pinterest pins.)
7. Add A Call To Action
Don't forget to include a call to action at the end of your post. This could be anything from encouraging readers to leave a comment, emailing you, signing up for a freebie, to following you on Instagram.
Finally, always make sure to read over your blog post’s writing before hitting the publish button, likely the last thing you want to do but very important. Read through your post a couple of times to check for spelling and grammar errors, until you’ve found all the mistakes. On this note please let me know if you ever see errors in my copy. Yes, that’s an invitation!
9. Have Fun!
Full confession, in the beginning I used to be daunted by that blank page, now I love it and can’t wait to add more blog posts and share what I’m learning and doing with you!
So there we go, overall writing a blog post as a creative can be a fun and engaging process if you keep these key blog writing tips in mind, add photos, keep it short, break it up, and have fun. Happy blogging!
