This is the area writers found to be the most difficult part about writing Blog Entry it is deciding what you want to write about. Blogs are interesting because you can use them in several ways. You can use them as a personal online journal of sorts if you wish. You can also use them as a place to post your opinions and views. , you can use them as a place to put short articles of interest for others to read. Lastly they can be used as a form of income as most bloggers do.

If you are choosing to use your blog as a source of income, then  you might will  need to do much more planning than if you are using it for an online journal or a place where you just post short stories that are of your interest. now the big question you need to ask yourself is what do you need from your blog?, if it is about income then you need to choose you topics carefully write them down do some research and it is always in your best interest to write about topic that you are familiar with and feel comfortable with. Create a list of topic ideas that interest you. Use them to decide what your topic  will be.

Another point to bear in mind is grammar this is very important.Try to keep your tone as friendly as you can express yourself after all you want your readers to feel you in the article.

Write Your Blog Post

When you sit down to write your post, remember that you are writing for your readers use the tone you choose. Keeping that tone and writing style in mind, write your topic or idea down then make bullet points about your key points you are going to write about before  you before you start writing. You should keep your blogs posts short. Put your main points in the paragraphs and elaborate on them.

  1. I want to add one tip which is every time you blogwaking make sure jot down the good headline. From the headline we can draft the content easily. And please do some research before start writing. It is better to shut up than dispel everything. 🙂

    I prefer this tip because for begineers, they don’t have lot of posts yet. So by blogwalking they will gain some ideas

  2. You are right with that one fazreen it is a valuble point you made there while blogwalking it is always a good idea to make note of those good headlines this is a good idea to get inspiration for your next topic.Thanks for your valuable support

  3. Great points. I have writer’s block occasionally. What I now try to do is keep my camera & Flip Video with me at all times. When I see something that I’m passionate about I film it in hopes of stirring up future feeling for a story.

  4. Writer’s block – I think this is the biggest barrier in blogging. Most bloggers have to face this thing at least once in their blogging. Even I am facing this at times. But one thing that helps me escape this thing is creativity. Being creative is what it all takes to be an outstanding blogger. Obviously you cannot keep writing on the same thing again and again. You can do it for sometime but not for long. Because you are more likely to get short of ideas.

    But it is a never ever a case with those who are creative and imaginative. They can never run short of ideas. They are more likely to do it better than most of the other bloggers who find quite difficult to move away from their usual niche. Plus, its not only about writing. It is about writing with a style. A thing which matter the least to me. You need to have that style in your blogging. Just cannot keep writing anything and everything..plain, old and simple.

  5. Nice read bro 🙂 . I believe that we should try to make our headlines catchy to attract the attention of our readers and it should have the keywords of your post .

    Btw your blog design looks good.You are really working hard on the designing part.

  6. That is another brilliant idea Daisy filming things is great this will give you a visual memory for future reference i really like the idea.

  7. Thanks Aswani creativity plays an important role in our blogging life but it becomes much easier if, As you have mention when you are writing about different things but sticking to a perticulr niche this is when it becomes a little bit more dufficult.

  8. Thanks for the compliment sis having catchy headlines is very important this is the selling point of any article and i am still tweaking this design some you may not notice but others you will see and good look on your new blog

  9. When blogging, write as you naturally speak. A lot of people believe you have to use journalism methods. You can always spell check and double check before you post, but write as you would speak. People will relate better and find your site more personable. 🙂

  10. Good stuff. I found that my tone changed as I better defined how and what I was going to write about after a couple of months. That process helped me when I started another blog because my writing style was already set, and all I had to do was concentrate on content. So, don’t be afraid to change styles midway if you find one way doesn’t quite work for you.

  11. Sound advice here i totally agree with you as bloggers we should always write just as we speak this is an easier way to relate to your readers and there and then they will feel your personal touch. Thanks fo leaving your comment.

  12. This is so true it is fine to change your writing style if at first or some where during writing your article you think it does not feel right.

  13. Thanks for your comment it looks like its your first time here however i do hope it is not the last ,your contribution to my post here is much appreciated.

  14. Thanks for supporting this blog and i hope to see you hear more often we do value your comments and or suggestion
