Blogging is such a great way to share your unique story with the world! Sometimes, it can be hard to share that story in a fun and engaging way. This can be even more tricky if you have a difficult subject to discuss or even something that might be a little controversial. However, putting a face to your blog and allowing people to see that sliver of your personal life can transform the way your readers react to your posts! Here is how to write engaging content for your blog.
Share your personal stories
People love to hear firsthand experiences and opinions from REAL people. When you are writing a blog post, don’t be afraid to share your personal opinions, and even how you felt about the experience. By sharing your stories, your readers will feel inspired and even connected to you. Your stories can also provide valuable information or even motivation for your readers.
Your readers may come to your blog to feel inspired or entertained, but they also want to learn something new or be educated on something they didn’t know much about. By being resourceful and sharing or educating your audience, you can begin to establish yourself as an expert on different subject matters. This will cause your readers to value your opinions, and even come back again the next time you have useful advice.
Don’t be afraid to vary your topics a little
While focusing on a few key things can help you gain credibility, only focusing on those things can limit your reach. Varying your topics will help you reach new audiences and expand your reach beyond your wildest dreams. Take advantage of trendy topics and current events but remember that you are focused on reaching your target audience.
Cut the fluff
Fluff is a fun and delicious snack food, but in a blog article, it’s not so fun. When you are writing blog articles, you should provide your readers with as much information as you can on a given topic. However, you need to know when to stop too. Filling your articles with fluffy text can cause your readers to get bored or miss the good stuff completely.
Grab your readers attention
Use compelling headlines! Also, as we are visual creatures, incorporate great graphics in your promotion efforts. A fabulous first paragraph and there you have it. You can grab your readers attention, so they won’t want to look away. Grabbing your readers attention in the first few minutes of your blog post is what will keep them engaged until the end. If your blog post is boring, then your readers probably are bored too.
Go for short sentences
Long sentences can be a little intimidating and hard to read. While longer articles provide more information, they can also scare off your readers. Try to keep your paragraphs to just a few sentences to make your articles a little less intimidating.
Writing engaging content might feel like an overwhelming task. I promise that if you give these tips a try, you’ll find it’s not as tricky as it may seem!
