How to write an exciting blog
A guest post by Alexa Bliss.
Blogging in this era has become more common than ever, and people nowadays take up blogging as their professional career.
However, it is not as easy as it sounds. It’s pretty challenging, particularly when you are writing about something that you are not aware of.
Write engaging content to keep your audience hooked on your exciting blog. Boring content does not attract readers, who are more likely to skim read without any attention. Bloggers need to write content which easily grabs the reader’s attention, which later leads them to read the whole blog.
Is writing an exciting blog easy?
People still regard blogging as easy, without any hard work or specific qualifications. However, you cannot ignore the constant dedication required. You are supposed to give substantial time to blogging in order to keep the readers addicted to your blog.
Nevertheless, students work as bloggers as it allows them to manage this with their studies. Compared to other corporate jobs, blogging can be said to be comparatively easy for professional workers. For example, students can benefit from blogging for Nursing Assignment Help, as this platform effectively explains how to write engaging content for your blog.
Provide an attractive first sentence
Make sure the first sentence of your exciting blog is definite, catchy and concisely explains the subject.
However, you cannot ignore the fact that writing the first sentence is the hardest part. We all know taking the first step for anything is the most challenging step. But once done, everything goes smoothly later. Consider these tips for writing the first sentence of your blog.
- Your first sentence needs to be though-provoking, preferably in a form of a question, such as “Are you looking for Writing Assignment Services?”
- Use famous quotes to start your blog, such as “Writing is not a difficult job, all you need is a typewriter to write extensively”.
- Facts and statistics are a good way to start your blog. It shows your post is well researched and the writer knows all the relevant information.
- Start with a relevant and engaging story. Either write a real, concise story, or quickly make one up if you have sufficient imagination, which most writers have.
Every word and phrase counts
You are not the only person working in this industry. Remember there are millions of blogs published already, which means you have a huge amount of competition for you to cope with. This is why it’s very important to write engaging content.
Try reading out what you have written. If you find it boring, then you definitely haven’t written an exciting blog. It will need specific editing to step up the engagement factor to prevent your readers from going to sleep.
Short sentences is the key
Long sentences are a huge turn-off for your readers. Nobody likes to hold their breath for a minute to read one long sentence. If a reader has to take a sigh of relief after reading a sentence, it is too long. Short sentences are recommended, however long sentences are OK if they are well written.
Nobody likes to use a dictionary while reading. It is quite irritating to come across words which are not easy to pronounce and are generally not usually used. Make sure you use simple words when writing your blog.
I would advise you to be sensible rather than trying to sound smart to convey your idea to your readers. What is the point of writing anything if your readers are unable to understand it?
For example, “utilise the resources” could be simply written as “use resources”. Reading should be easy for your readers. No matter how much you want to sound impressive or improve your reader’s vocabulary, please understand your job is not to teach them the language.
Use of analogies
Blogging and dating are very similar. While out on a date, you will want to leave a good impression on your partner. And you keep on working it rigorously to do this. Moreover, it’s important to give your partner time while you are showing how dedicated you are.
Did you get the analogy? Could you relate this to blogging? The reason why you use analogies is to make what you write more relatable.
The good way to keep your audience addicted to your exciting blog is to make them feel connected to you. Include relatable pop-cultural references with which your readers can associate themselves.
However, before you use references, make sure you know your audience. If you get it wrong, you could lose your audience for life.
For example, mentioning The Beatles as one of the best rock bands to an audience who prefer One Direction is probably not very suitable.
Uniqueness as well as exciting
Innovation and uniqueness sell in the market. When you go shopping you look for things which are unique and attractive.
Similarly, an exciting blog needs have to have an element of uniqueness to make your readers attracted to it.
How to conclude your exciting blog
Writing a punchy and catchy conclusion is comparatively easy, as all you have to do is to summarise everything. However, make sure you use concluding language for it to make sense.
