How To Write A Blog Post

Step 1) Have A Good Idea

Chances are if you have an idea that means something to you, it will mean something to someone else.

Step 2) Start Drafting

While this doesn’t have to be a complex process, take a few minutes to develop a plot line. Where does your idea start and where are you planning on taking it?

Step 3) Start Writing

This is where creative freedom can be both a blessing and a curse. When you start to write about something you are passionate about, your mind can start a whole new plot. If you are feeling risky, go ahead follow that rabbit hole – sometimes, they lead to exotic places. If you prefer a more concrete style, just jot that bunny trail down in a notebook and write about it another day.

Step 4) Edit, Edit, Edit

Almost every blog post I write goes through 3 big edits. #1 Myself. #2 The Free Version of Grammarly. #3 Scribbens. Sometimes, when I alter content, we repeat this process again, and again, and again.

Step 5) Find A Killer Feature Image

I recommend using a stock photo if you aren’t the photography type. Even if you are, there is no shame. I usually pick an image from Unsplash or Pexels.

Step 6) Share The Life Out Of That Thing

Congrats, you made it! You have successfully written a quality blog post on a topic that means a lot to you. It’s aesthetically attractive with a nice feature photo, and it’s been posted to a medium of your preference. So, what’s next? If you want people to actually see it, you have to take initiative to get it out there. This can look like posting the link to your personal social media or engaging in your preferred medium and drawing attention to your own work. Either way, somewhere along the lines some will read it and they will likely love it.
