How to Write the Perfect Blog Post 👍

Want to learn how to write a blog post and make it great? Blog writing isn't easy, but it's not that hard either. I've been blogging for over 10 years and have learned a LOT (and have made a ton of mistakes, too!), so make sure to watch all the way through so that you can get my best tips to make sure you write something compelling, while also making it easier for you to write too!

Writing for a blog is about understanding what your audience wants to know about, and delivering in such a way that's easy to consume, easy on the eye, but also impactful, as well.

I've developed a framework, thanks to a number of handy tools, that you can use for yourself when writing a blog post.

Tip #1 – 0:53 – Make the Post Transformative

Tip #2 – 1:31 – Outline your thoughts (working backwards from the transformation)

Tip #3 – 2:45 – Start by Engaging Readers (i.e. Start Strong!)

Tip #4 – 3:45 – Don't write in WordPress

Tip #5 – 6:00 – Make your Title and Description Compelling and Relevant

Tip #6 – 7:46 – Make your blog post scannable

Tip #7 – 8:51 – Use visuals (i.e. images) to break up your blog posts

Tip #8 – 9:58 – Include Calls to Actions (please!)

Tip #9 – 11:55 – Proofread your blog post! (also please!) and read it out loud!

Tip #10 – 13:03 – Stop trying to be perfect!

      Tip #10 was so meant for me. Had been delaying 6 drafts in the past 15 days, trying to make them perfect everytime I started writing.

      How do you start the intro with a story, but also make sure your main keyword is in the 1st sentence. I think I struggle with this alot.

      For anyone reading this, I’m not a blogger but I notice the structure that the consulting firms use in their posts:

      1.- Problem! (That most people would feel relatave)
      2.- Solution
      3.- Barriers
      4.- Breaking down the barriers
      5.- Conclusion
