How to Write the Perfect Blog Post: A Complete Guide to Copy.
Want to learn how to write the perfect blog post?
Seems like an unachievable goal, right?
What I’m going to do today is show you a very deliberate formula and list of inclusions that I follow with my posts in order to ensure that I get results.
I’m not saying that it works every time, but I can guarantee that if you start to add these elements to your own blog posts you’ll start to get wins a lot more often.
What makes this the perfect blog post?
Okay, so let me do a bit of explaining.
I’m not saying that I know how to write the perfect blog post and that everything I do on my blog is perfect.
In fact, I really don’t like my writing that much at all. (Do all bloggers feel like that?)
But I have been blogging for quite a while now and in that time I’ve been able to hone my posts by looking at what has worked and what hasn’t over the years.
It’s basically a lot of trial and error.
Today all I am doing is sharing the elements, strategies and ideas that I have seen make a big difference to the stuff I write. I’m hoping that you might read something new, apply it to your own blog and see a big difference in your own results.
So it’s more like a quest for finding your own perfect blog post based on what has worked for me.
How to write the perfect blog post: 5 things to keep in mind before you start
Let’s start this post by talking about a few background idea that you kind of need to keep in mind while you are writing your posts. This is a bit like the instructions as opposed to the actual creation.
1. Ask yourself “…and then what?” before you start writing
One of the best lessons that I ever learned as a blogger is this:
All your blog posts should form one big beautiful picture as opposed to each being stand alone items. - Tweet this.
What this means is that you need to sit down and carefully figure out what it is that you want your blog, and your blog posts, to achieve every single time.
The question “… and then what?” seems to help me the most.
I’ll sit down, log in, and fiddle around with a title and an idea. Once I’m pretty sure on the topic I’ll ask myself very deliberately what I want people to do before I write any words.
Make sure your post all work together as a team to achieve one or two very deliberate goals.
