The Art of Blogging
We have started to come across the word blog in our day to day life more frequently now than ever. So what is the big deal about a blog? Is it as simple as writing an essay for a school or college?
“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” —William Wordsworth
Blog writing is an art of expressing views to a targeted audience by EMPATHIZING from their perspective. here are a few things that I have summarized for you with the hope that this would help you express your views and ideas.
Note that empathizing is capitalized. While speaking we tend to stress the important words, similarly while writing, we should capitalize words that we need to stress.
Use bold, italics, white space quotes and links in a way that it adds beauty to the product, in our case the blog.
I am writing on behalf of an organization, even though I am not using the word “we”, which is very important because it is logical. only one person is blogging. Not the entire Corporate.
The next part is to understand that you should never rush your blog, you will lose its natural touch. what keeps the readers entertained is the natural way of SAYING things.
That means you don’t give long lectures, you give out short and crisp points without boring the users. make jokes around what you are writing without deviating from your topic.
Yes, there are no formalities and all those things while blogging, you write as if you are having a conversation with a friend.
And most importantly, think and analyze your targeted audience. Always keep in mind that while talking about tech you should not write essays as the current generation is all about pictures short sentences and all.
“I usually tell those people that blogging is like any sort of long-term relationship. Some days are great. Others aren’t so great, but you’re in it for the long haul.”–Neil Patel
Will you read your own blog, is it worth reading? If you don’t find your product to be useful, how do you expect others to read it?
the more you write, the more you can
1. Create an Idea
Analyze your topic, research about it, keep researching until you are confident that you can write a book about it.
We are taught not to judge a book by its cover, but mind you no one follows that in the blogging world. what attracts people to your blog is not the content or the pictures. it’s the heading. so make sure that you have a heading.
3.List out the main points
A major percentage(80%) of blog readers don’t exactly read them word by word. so make sure that you lay out the points
4. Add images, videos and links
Heard of makeup? images, videos and links are what you should use to enhance the beauty of your blog. They are a powerful tool if used wisely.
5. Do not end the topic
Blogs are meant for discussions, so don’t ever end or conclude them.Let the readers talk and discuss.
keep doing this and you will be a good blogger if not the best.
