Today you’re going to learn how to write a blog post, and how to place posts in the queue so they release automatically in the future.
The title of your blog is important because it tells the search engines what your post is about, and it’s also what will appear for your pages in the SERPs. Having a good title sparks the potential visitor’s interest, possibly with a controversial question or statement. For SEO purposes, having your target keyword at or near the beginning of the title also helps.
Here are a couple of well-written blog post title examples:
- 7 Conversation Topics That Hold Her Attention And Attract Her
- Is Amazon about to kill Paypal?
Take note of how both of these titles are not only eye-catching, but are likely to be searched for by your target audience. Having a number in your title can also help to attract visitors.
A few tips for your post
- Don’t worry too much about how short or long your blog post is. Instead, put your focus on how helpful the information will be to your audience. Is it relevant to their interests? Does it help them achieve something?
- If you’re nervous about your writing, try reading your post out loud before hitting the “publish” button. This will help to make sure it flows well and sounds good.
- Be generous with your knowledge
- Never be rude, but by all means be controversial. People like blogs with strong opinions and lots of personality.
- Be consistent with the quality of your posts.
Tags are keywords which summarize and describe your blog posts. They help your visitors find posts on topics that they’re interested in. So for example, a review of the drop shipping company Doba.com would interest people who are looking for information on ‘making money’, ‘drop shipping’, and ‘eBay’, so these would all be good tags.
If you’re planning on building a big blog, you may want to add some categories to help organize your posts. Categories make it easier for your readers to find the information they’re looking for.
All you have to do to add a new category is click the “Add new category” button.
Comments are a key ingredient of an interactive, lively blog; however, spam is a hugely time-consuming issue. You’ll want to moderate your blog comments regularly. This involves deleting spam and allowing legit comments to go live on your site. I highly recommend you make use of the WordPress plugin Akismet, as it automatically identifies and deletes most of your spam comments.
When it comes to how to write a blog post, some days your words just flow onto the page, other days it may be very difficult to come up with anything. Luckily, there’s a great plugin which allows you to take advantage of those days when your creativity is just flowing and accumulate a stockpile of your posts to get you through the not-so-good days.
A WordPress plugin like Publish to Schedule lets you queue your posts so that they will automatically release according to your chosen schedule. All you have to do is set the length of time between each post being published, and on your set days a post will be taken from the queue and posted onto your blog.
