Writing a Great Blog Post is sometimes a daunting task. When you sit down to write, but the words aren’t flowing. I had a hard time thinking about what to write about this morning. When you’re faced with such a situation having a structure to your blog can make a difference.
Over my eleven years of blogging, I’ve had a habit of looking up influential and prolific bloggers. I’ve realized one thing:
Each has an organized system and structure that allows blogging
Although the structures differ, they all have a certain form that they have in common. There are certain exceptions to this, but I have yet to see any. The standard for serious blog writers is to follow an established method of composing every blog article.
You should also, if you want to be prolific and if your posts will reach out to readers and resonate with them. So, what will this look like? What do you do to write a blog using different writing tools and that is great every time?
The approach you take may be different based on the subject matter on your website and your personal style. However, I’ve noticed that the most effective blog posts usually contain four key components. These are the four key elements:
1.An eye-catching headline
A well-written blog post should be about one topic, idea, or thought. Not 57. Not 101. Just one.
Before you start writing, you must decide the topic you want to blog about. Select a headline that you can use to provide you with a framework (you can change it later). Start writing.
Good titles are engaging as well as descriptive and engaging. It should read as a magazine headline or TV newsflash that entices readers to click the link. (If you require help, check out this post: ” 5 Easy Tricks to Help You Write Catchy Headlines”.)
The headline is the first thing viewers see, and it is the only thing they will see should you need help doing it correctly. Spend time creating a compelling headline. It is your first task (and the final) before you click “publish.”
2.A compelling opening paragraphs
First impressions indeed count. So why don’t you write this way? What is the reason you are wasting the time of readers with irrelevant information and little anecdotes?
In the case of the Internet, where people’s attention spans are less than print, your opening paragraph is essential. Be careful not to overdo it. Journalists understand this, and they’re conditioned to do it. “Don’t bury the lead,” they advise. If you don’t grab your readers immediately, they will be gone forever.
Begin with a quote, question, or a bold, bold and bold claim. You have only one chance, and make it count.
3.Interesting and interesting supporting points
The body is the post, and this is the “meat” of the post, which will be the basis for your main point or argument.
Each story or story you tell should be supported by an argument that readers can get their teeth into. All stories don’t need to fit neatly into the three-point argument or seven-step procedure; however, you shouldn’t be in a jumble.
Please note what you wish to discuss and the best way to back it up. An effective way to organize is to write a list that includes bullets. Write your post’s body using these bullet points as your primary sections (if necessary, you can turn them into subheadings, just like I did in this article).
When your post on the blog is like a highway, and you want to make these points, they are the signs on the street that guide readers to the conclusion.
4.A compelling call to action
Suppose you’ve captured your readers, attracted their attention with an appealing headline, enticed them with a captivating opening paragraph, and guided them through with compelling arguments. In that case, you’re now to conclude the piece.
Be clear. Your readers should think about something other than why they read your article. Do you? Offer them something they can take away.
Are you looking for your audience to think about a specific concept? To respond to something? To respond in a way? Whatever the reason, Be clear about it. It will happen with others, and you will receive what you want. This is the portion of your post where you encourage readers to respond to an inquiry, leave a comment, or even share your blog post. It should be clear and easy to follow.
Take it all in
When I create a blog post using free writing tools and resources, I follow the four elements and treat these as steps. This is how I usually blog:
- Select a subject and then create your subject line.
- Write the leading paragraph.
- Give a few of the main areas of your body.
- Write your call to action.
- Edit to revise and edit. (At this stage, I generally modify your headline.)
- Then publish (checking your headline last time to ensure it’s still working).

Make sure to follow this procedure every time you publish, and you’ll have a hard time when it comes to creating amazing content. The structure might feel stiff initially; however, this is normal for every other practice you’ve ever done. It will feel more normal in time, and the limitations could lead to more images.
