If you’re trying to write content for your blog, but aren’t sure what could make your blog posts interesting, then fear not!
Here are some tips that will help you write better than ever before.
1. Open with an interesting quote
Quotes are a great way to open your blog post. They can be inspirational, funny, or just interesting.
You want them to be relevant to your readers and provide some context for what you’re going to talk about in the rest of the article.
Here are some ideas:
- Open with an inspiring quote by someone famous who has done something similar before like Oprah Winfrey.
- You could also try writing down your own personal experience with overcoming obstacles and making dreams come true. This can be something as simple as starting a business after being laid off from work. Or quitting alcohol completely after years of struggling with addiction issues.
2. Write a good title to make your blog posts interesting
The title of your blog post should be a summary of the content you’re going to share. It should be interesting and easy to understand, but not too long or complicated.
The title should describe what it is you’re going to talk about in such a way that people want to click on it. Read more, and learn more about what you have written about.
3. Break your content into section
Headings are a great way to break up your text, so you should use them!
For example: “Heading 1”, “Heading 2” and so on.
You can also break up headings using subheadings. If you have more information or different points that need to be made in each section of the post.
As long as your headings make sense, they’re good enough for this purpose. No need for fancy formatting here!
4. Write in short paragraphs
- Short paragraphs. It’s easier to read, scan and understand. And since we’re talking about blogging, you probably want your readers to do that too!
- Short sentences. They’re also easier to skim because they don’t take as long to read or digest.
5. Use interesting fonts and typography
Using a variety of fonts in your posts will make them more interesting.
Use a readable font that stands out from the rest of the text on your blog post or website, such as Arial or Verdana. You can also try using colors like red or green if they are appropriate for the content in question.
6. Include images and videos
Images and videos are great for breaking up the text, especially if you’re writing about a topic that can get dull. They can illustrate points or help make them more clear, and they’re also great for showing how something works or is done.
For example: If you’re writing about how to grow plants in your home. Maybe include some photos of flowers blooming in different watering schedules.
You may create infographics(How to create amazing infographics) showing all sorts of statistics related to your blog post. That can give your authority and backlinks.
7. Use a mixture of short and long sentences
One of the most common mistakes bloggers makes when writing is using too many short sentences. It can make your post feel choppy and unreadable. On the other hand, if you use too many long sentences in one post. It will probably lose its focus on what you’re trying to say.
The best mix is somewhere between these two extremes. Use a combination of both types of sentence structure—but don’t go overboard with either one!
8. Keep it brief (700 to 1600 words)
The ideal length of your blog post is 700 to 1600 words. If you’re writing a long-form article, you can use bullet points and lists to keep it concise, but even then it should be no longer than 1500 words.
If the topic is too big for one article, break it down into smaller chunks that can be published at different times throughout the year. In this way, readers won’t feel overwhelmed by too much information all at once. And they’ll have time with each new piece to check out related information!
9. Include a table of contents
A table of contents (TOC) is a great way to help readers navigate your post. It should be at the beginning of the post and it should include links to each section of your post.
The TOC also serves as an outline for what’s coming in your post, so you can use this section to highlight any important points or provide context for those who may not have read all previous pages yet.
10. Use bullet points where possible
Bullet points are a great way to make your content more scannable and easier to read. They can be used for a number of reasons:
- To summarize information in one quick overview. If you have a lot of information about an idea or topic, it’s possible that readers may not be able to scan all the details quickly enough. Using bullet points will help them get what they need without having to spend too much time reading through long paragraphs.
- To highlight important details in order to make them stand out from other parts of the post.
11. Let people see content before they subscribe or buy something.
If you’re giving away content, it’s important to make sure that people know what they’re getting in exchange for subscribing or buying something.
That way, they can make an informed decision about whether or not they want to subscribe and give their email address out of trust that you’ll deliver on your promises.
12. Provide stories you personally experienced.
- Start with a story that you have personally experienced or learned about, or relate to the reader’s experience in some way
That way they can connect with your content on an emotional level. You can use this technique as a way of engaging with readers and also illustrating points that need emphasis more than anything else could do alone.
13. Make your blog posts share-worthy
If you want your readers to share your blog posts, you should make sure that they can easily find the social media share buttons at the end of each one. When people read a post and see a link to their favorite social media platform, they’ll be more likely to click on it.
That’s why I recommend adding multiple different types of buttons: Pinterest, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin…and so on.
People love seeing their favorite sites listed together in one place; it makes it easier for them to find ways to connect with others who share similar interests or passions.
14. Use a subheading if the paragraph is long enough.
A subheading is a line that’s clearly labeled as part of a larger piece, and it helps break up the flow. It also helps readers skim through your article to find the information they are looking for.
Google likes subheadings because they help users understand the structure of an article quickly and easily. They also make sure that all important things are mentioned in some way or another before moving on with the rest of your post.
15. For SEO purposes, bold certain keywords throughout the text.
Bolding certain keywords throughout your text will help search engines and readers find you. This is especially useful if you have a lot of information in your post and want to make sure people can easily find the most important parts.
If you’re writing about SEO, bolding words like “SEO(SEO Guide)” or “Keyword research” can be helpful for both readers and search engines because these are terms that are likely to be searched for in Google’s results.
It also helps if you have more than one keyword per sentence—it’s easier for readers to follow along when they don’t have to read every word twice!
I can’t stress enough how important it is to make your blog posts interesting. Google has been known to penalize websites that don’t use good content, so you’d be wise not to take this lightly!
There are many different ways in which you can approach making your content more engaging. Even if all you do is change up what kind of font and color choices go into each paragraph or section of an article, it will improve how readers feel about reading through the rest of it.
