Have you ever sat down to write a blog article and stared at a white screen?  Writing is a difficult enough process without knowing where you’re going with your ideas, how to frame them, make them understandable, and format them with the reader in mind.  There is something that all blog writers can do about these challenges, they can use the following three simple tips for writing a blog article.

 

Tip 1: The 5 Paragraph Message Format

One of the biggest challenges to writing blogs consistently and quickly is overcoming the challenge of knowing how to write a piece of work in the first place.  The five paragraph formula is an excellent starting point for doing this. The five paragraph formula puts an introduction at the the head of the article, allows for the explanation of a set number of ideas in the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th paragraphs – then wraps it up with a solid conclusion and/or a call to action.

Tip 2: Make Your Article Readable and Understandable

Starting in the introduction, a great blog article must be easily readable and understandable.  As the author and the designer of the interaction with your business or blog it’s up to you to decide how you want your audience to interact.  However, you should always be focused on getting your message across to the widest possible audience.  This means writing in the clearest language you can, and writing in a manner so that readers can easily pick-up your ideas.

Tip 3: Focus on Formatting

One of the best ways to help readers understand your ideas and thesis is to write in short blocks of text and to highlight important parts for them to remember.  This means keeping your paragraphs short and to a point.  Make sure you stay on topic in each paragraph and use things like headings, quotes, pictures, videos, or similar to call attention to the fact that you’ve honed in on a specific topic.  Remember that your reader is busy and wants to get through your content faster than you want them to.
