So you want to write better blog posts, eh?
Every writer may have their own unique style — but these 6 methods can be applied to any blog, blogger or blog post.
This seems like a logical place to begin…
1. Focus on Intros
Often the weakest part of an article is the introduction. Sometimes an article will go from good to great just by chopping off the first 5 paragraphs and getting the reader to the point much more quickly.
Here’s a trick… use a very punchy, curiosity building sentence to open every post. This sentence should be short (rarely longer than 8 words.)
The idea here is to open with a simple sentence that is easy to read and that builds curiosity. This first sentence is intended to create a “greased chute” (I stole that term from Joe Sugarman) that forces them down the page.
