Till now we got the knowledge on blogs but “Do we know how to write a proper Blog and design it?” In the field of blogging duplicity is strictly prohibited. G Squared says the major factor of a successful blog is that the content should be original. The blogger must write it with lots of creativity and try to make it more interesting as possible. There are few key steps one should keep in mind while writing a blog in order to maintain its beauty therefore, people should actually read it.
Preparing an Outline
Before start writing the blog, person should choose his topic of blog (generally in which the person has interest); perform some research on that topic, collect some facts etc.
Blogger must remember that giving an informative heading will be beneficial for him. It will easily capture the reader’s attention towards his blog.
Paragraph should be in Brief
Readers avoid reading a long blogs. If someone is writing a long blog then it is very rare chance that reader will going to read it. This will be a negative point for the blogger. Blogger must add informative values to the post in order to impress the readers.
Avoid spelling mistakes and use of redundant words
This is the most common mistakes that bloggers do. The casual mistakes can be ignored one time by the readers but repeatedly doing this will annoy the readers and writer may lose lots of readers for his blog. In the same way, it is suggested that redundant words should not be included in blogs.
Reading only text for long time cause boredom in readers therefore, it is very helpful to include images in order to maintain the flow, humor. Mostly, images can explain complex topics too which is very helpful for readers.
Do not use Text Talk
We mostly use mobile languages that are text talk (short form) in order to save the time. Text talk is allowed in mobiles but not in Blogging. While reading a blog there are some person who may have a habit of reading from the childhood who at a glance understand the meaning of paragraph without need to read the whole. Using this, it will harder for readers to interpret the meaning of words as well as the whole content.
After completing the blog, blogger must do proofreading line by line repeatedly in order to avoid the repetition of words, redundant words, grammatical mistakes etc. Do not adapt writings from others.
Ensure that content must maintain the flow. It is suggested that, once you write the blog read it 3-4 days later. Since, reading at that time may not be useful to checkout for the errors because he memorizes the content. So if a blogger reads the content after 3-4 days he will be effectively pointing the errors as he’ll have to read line by line again and it would look fresh to him.
At last, wrap-up the content and post it to the online community or platform. Do not forget to look for feedback of readers. Try to update your blog on a regular basis.
