How to Write a Blog Post: A Simple Formula to Follow
Step 1: Understand your audience.
Before you start to write, have a clear understanding of your target audience. What do they want to know about? What will resonate with them?
Step 2: Start with a topic and working title.
Before you even write anything, you need to pick a topic for your blog post.
Step 3: Write an intro (and make it captivating).
First, grab the reader’s attention. If you lose the reader in the first few paragraphs — or even sentences — of the introduction, they will stop reading even before they’ve given your post a fair shake. You can do this in a number of ways: tell a story, be empathetic, or grip the reader with an interesting fact or statistic.
Step 4: Organize your content.
Sometimes, blog posts can have an overwhelming amount of information — for the reader and the writer. The trick is to organize the info so readers are not intimidated by the length or amount of content. The organization can take multiple forms — sections, lists, tips, whatever’s most appropriate. But it must be organized! This depends on the direction your teacher
Step 5: Write!
The next step — but not the last — is actually writing the content. We couldn’t forget about that, of course.
Now that you have your outline/template, you’re ready to fill in the blanks. Use your outline as a guide and be sure to expand on all of your points as needed. Write about what you already know, and if necessary, do additional research to gather more information, examples, and data to back up your points.
