As someone who has never blogged in their life, I’ve had asked myself, how do I start a blog anyway? How does it have to be structured? Or Does it have to be formal/informal for a social media audience? While searching on the web, I’ve found many different articles/blogs on how to create a successful blog but lots were long, boring, and tailored towards a business audience. Basically, I just wanted to have a reference with simple steps and language that would get to the point! Well, I finally found it!
Simple Steps to Make a Social Media Blog
A blog that explained how to create a blog in simple language. This is my understanding. 1. Introduction. Having a clear start explains to the reader the reason for writing. What are we talking about again? 2. Headlines are important to highlight interesting facts. Something I always do. Also, don’t forget subheadings and cram in more “buzz words”… I mean facts. 2. Short paragraphs. Make your blog post into bite sized pieces so that it is easier to read or if you’re someone like me who enjoys writing endlessly as much as humanly possible. 4. Write in plain English. Structure content in a way that is available to everyone by avoiding jargon or complex terms. Say, schadenfreude ten times fast! 5. Use your voice. Having personal opinions about experiences will help you get noticed in a crowd. Like wearing a bright red shirt. 6. Let it be the length it needs to be which is great for Google’s search results! 7. Use compelling Imagery. Pictures grab the audience’s attention. The photo (s) used in your blog make it more inviting instead of boring walls of endless text. No one will be moving in anytime soon if that happens! 8. Have a conclusion. Much like a report have all facts summed up at the end and do not include new ones. It would be like finishing up homework for the day only to discover there’s more! Finally, 9. Have a Call to Action. This is a simple way to engage the audience by asking them What did you like or did not like about the blog? Well… did you like it? Did you! Let me know in the comments below!
A Simple Conclusion to a Simple Blog
In my opinion, with these steps anyone could create a great blog for social media because it provides the basic knowledge that anyone could use. For example, an introduction gets to the point quickly the same with subheads. Attract attention with headlines and outline points of interest to the audience and write short paragraphs so that any human can read your content. Furthermore, using your voice helps readers to know who you are on a personal level. Also, write in plain speech so anyone could understand and long enough to appease the search engine overlords but not bore the reader. Now, add a picture or two when necessary because people like brightly colored things! Next, have a conclusion… Finally, have a call to action asking the audience what they liked about the blog. Well… did you like it? Did you! Let me know in the comments below!
