Hey Guys,

How are you today ? In this blog post, we will talk about some blogging beginner tips regarding writing articles. To be more specific, we will talk about 4 tips through which we can write engaging and informative blog posts. Writing engaging posts is important because it determines whether you get lots of comments or not. Your articles must also be informative so that it helps the reader and he/she may be prompted to share your article, subscribe to your blog, add it to their reading list etc. Let’s not waste time, let’s start the post :-

4 Steps To Writing An Engaging And Informative Post

Understand your task

The first thing you must do is understand your task. To make it more precise, think about your goal. What type of comments are you expecting from your readers, how many hits, do you have any specific goals for the article ? Think about what you want to achieve through the article. You must do this every time you write an article. It helps you to become a better writer, blogger and stay focused. First, You should understand what you are trying to say and then you  have to ask yourself two main questions :   what you want to say and why you should say it. By say, I mean “writing your idea”. You have to think of reasons. You must think about the relevance of post, why we it matters and/or how it can help your readers. As a blogger, I will tell you to practice this every time you blog. The next thing we are going to talk about is choosing a topic.

Choose a topic

This task goes along with the first one. You need to think of a topic. You must choose wisely. When choosing a topic, ask yourself : Why should I write about it ? Would it help my readers ? Have my readers read this post a hundred time on the web, already ? You must choose a good topic. You may choose between a narrow and broad topics. Some bloggers might tell you to choose one over another. But, I will tell you that both are important. And, you may have to mix them up sometimes. For example, In a post, you may have to be broad on some sub headings, but on others, you might have to be narrow. Anyways, choose a good topic and move on with your blogging.

Get Information

The next task is getting information, researching. Before you start writing you need to get information. Do some research about it. For my SEO bloggers, research might be a good word. But, research according to me, is not for SEO. Rather it is to look at the existing ideas about your topic (that is already on the web) and use them to make new ideas (extend the ideas or extrapolate). You may also use books and others for your research. Research doesn’t just mean reading blogs. Rather, it should be a fun task, where you create connections, discover information and develop new ideas. Research will also help you to develop or copy existing analogies for your post. The last tip I can give you is about knowing your audience.

Know Your Audience

The final tip that I can give you here is that you must know your audience. You must know how they act to your information (post), who they are (newbie bloggers ? upcoming ? pro ? some others ?). Again, all these tips will help all bloggers, in general. You must know them. Knowing your audience will help you to write better posts. By knowing your audience, you will be able to write better articles, get more visitors etc.

Conclusion

That puts an end to our post. I hope that it helped you. Use these tips to improve your writing and get more results out of your post. Thank you for reading and don’t forget to let me know of your opinion.

    You make it sound so simple. I’m afraid it’s not really. There’s a LOT more involved than that.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com Justin Germino

      Yeah, this is a very high level article there is of course so much more depth into writing engaging posts and what words, terms, phrases are best to make calls to action as well as what personality portrayed in your writing style is effective at converting passerby’s into long time readers.

    And probably the most important point after writing an engaging blog post: Engage with your audience.

    Hi Jeevan

    For me one of the most important aspects of writing is engaging with my audience. If they have a problem, then I write about the problem and offer a solution. that will also often convert to cusotmers too :-)

    I think The final tip “Know Your Audience” is the most important part of writing engaging blog post!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com Justin Germino

      Right, this is especially too if you have been blogging a while and have a regular reader base. You should have a lot more insight into who your audience is.

  • Argie Monroy@SEO Blogger

    If you learn how to understand your readers and engage with them, then the chances would be greater to have them as friends rather than just visitors.. Knowing your audience plays such a vital role..

  • Ryan Cassidy

    Totally agree with ‘Knowing your Audience’ – Brilliant Article.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com Justin Germino

      Thanks Ryan, Jeevan always posts great tips and idea’s here.

  • charlene@Invisible Braces

    What a great article! I agree on all of your tips! But the best way is knowing your audience. Not just knowing them, but also connecting and relating to them. And by knowing your audience, the blogger will be able to give them and serve to them what they are looking for and thus they come back. Thank you for this post! I appreciate it!
