Writing a blog post doesn’t have to be intimidating. Take a look at the anatomy of the previous post — and follow the same six simple steps to write one of your own.
Step 1: Title
Here’s a tried-and-true formula to help you think up short, catchy headlines: Number + Adjective + Target Keyword + Promise.
Step 2: Image
Search online for an appealing image to go with your topic. Be sure to credit the source in the caption.
Step 3: Introduction
This is your “teaser.” Write two to three sentences telling your readers what they’ll get out of the blog post.
Step 4: Body
Split up your story or tips into a few short sections to make it a fast, easy read. Support each section with two to five sentences, keeping your entire blog post to only 300 to 500 words.
Step 5: Conclusion
This is your “highlights reel.” Recap the most important take-aways in two to three sentences, mentioning the benefit to your reader. Consider concluding with a question for your reader.
Step 6: Bio
End with an italicized sentence or two that briefly tells your name, title, company, mission, and the best way to find out more or to get in touch.
