5 Tips to Write a Great Blog Article for Beginners

Blogging is a great way to share your thoughts and opinions with the whole world. With so many people turning into avid readers every day, blogging has a good scope for a career. However, just like any other skill, blogging is not something you can master overnight.

Here are 5 simple and effective tips that will take your blogging skills from ‘good’ to ‘great’!

1. Keep   Reading

2. Take Your Headlines Seriously

3. The Rule of 3

4. Be Concise

5. CTA and Conclusion

1. Keep Reading

Blogging is less about writing and more about reading. The fact that you are reading this article at the moment is itself a good start. Give yourself a pat on the back!

The more you read, the more you will learn and the better you can formulate your own thoughts to deliver to your audience. Additionally, you will also improve the quality and credibility of your blog when you say things with absolute certainty. This certainty will only come out of extensive research of the topic, usually in the form of reading.

2. Take Your

Headlines Seriously

The headings you give to your topics are nearly as important as the content itself, if not more!

Many amateur writers seem to not understand this. If you think about it logically, headlines and subheadings are the things that help a person decide if they should read your article or not. If your headline is not captivating enough for your targeted audience, then they are just going to turn to another writer or post without a second thought.

3. The Rule of 3

This is something that I try to follow in all my articles.

Always try to limit your paragraphs to 3 sentences. However, you might find yourself in a situation where it is unavoidable to write more than 3 sentences. In such cases, make sure your subsequent lines are as short as possible.

This will improve the readability by not overwhelming the reader with a lot of words at one go. Your paragraphs should be short enough for the reader to clearly understand and long enough to fill the mouth with enough words to gulp.

4. Be Concise

Your readers are reading your blog not just to stay entertained, but also to learn things quickly. So, it is not a good idea to beat around the bush. Always stick to the point and try to convey your message in as little words as possible.

Although this is good for the reader, it is detrimental when it comes to the SEO of your website. So, the solution is to provide as much information as possible. And this takes us back to our first point – “Keep Reading”.

A good rule of thumb is to limit your article to:

  • 500 to 700 words for personal website and brands.
  • 700 to 1000 words for healthcare websites.
  • 1000 to 1400 words for e-commerce businesses.
  • 1400 to 2000 words for educational websites.

5. CTA and Conclusion

Most beginner writers fail to provide a seamless closure for their blogs. Towards the end of the blog, you should help the readers take their next course of action.

Remind your audience of what the blog is about and how it will benefit them, followed by a Call-to-Action (CTA).

For example, this particular article provided you with some tips to improve your blogging skills that will increase customer engagement with your business.

Until you master this art, hire a professional for your company’s content creation needs.
