Blogging is something that I really enjoy and, because I do it so much, I’ve been able to create for myself a pretty effective structure for writing posts every day on differing subject matters depending on the niche of the blogs I’m writing for.
Over the last few weeks I have heard many new bloggers say to me ‘I don’t know what to write about.’ Even an experienced blogger would agree that at times choosing your blog posts topics can often be the hardest part to creating a post. Deciding what you are going to actually write about can cause some bloggers to climb the wall.
I would tell everyone to blog about something they really like and what they will continue to like for years to come. Writing blog posts people want to read is a matter of speaking of speaking your mind openly about a subject you’re passionate about. Your blog posts need to be dynamic, stimulating and entertaining. That’s all there is to it.
People will return to your blog if they like what you write about and they like your writing style. If you are a new blogger the first thing I’d suggest you do is give your readers a little introduction into who you are. Share with them your interests and experiences that may be of interest to them. It’s good to give them an insight into the person you are, and the journey you’re on.
Let your readers know your purpose or motivation for blogging. Make your purpose clear as to what you want to blog about. Let them know your subjects of interest. Demonstrate to them your passions, enthusiasm and commitment to these subjects or areas of interest.
Any readers need to know what to expect when they visit your site. What direction you’ll be taking your blog. If it’s just going to be the diary of your life, that’s fine, just let them know.
You need to be comfortable sharing your knowledge, your opinion, telling people your unique point of view and your way of seeing things. I say again share your passion, your life story with the people you’re trying to reach. It can be hard to put yourself out there and show your susceptibilities, but you need to if you want people to able to relate to what you’re telling them and to build both your online reputation and followers.
So ask yourself what exactly are you good at? What is the area you are most passionate about? Or simply are you ready to expose your life and its ups and downs to help others out there? Now start building your posts.
