Welcome to day 8 of 12 days of blogging. I can’t believe how fast this event is going. I am having so much fun sharing all the information with you. I hope that you are enjoying it as well. Day 8 and we are talking all about the anatomy of a blog post. Things to include in every blog post that you write.
5 PARTS OF A BLOG POST
Sometimes this can be the hardest thing about the whole blog post. You want to create a title that engages your audience and also gives them a hint about what you are going to talk about.
Having a great graphic in your blog post helps to also catch the eyes of your readers. Make sure that it is a pleasing photo that will draw them in even more. Your readers will first scan your blog post before they actually read it. Keep it simple. Your blog graphic doesn’t have to be extravagant. It should get your message across through a photo. I highly recommend using Canva to create your graphics. I absolutely love using it and it is super easy to use.
We are bloggers which means we like to write. We have to remember that to keep our readers’ attention, we need to keep things short. Keep your paragraphs short in length so that when they are skimming the post, to begin with, they don’t feel overwhelmed. You want to make sure your paragraphs are easy to read and keep them engaged. Breaking them up makes that easier to do.
Links make you more credible. They help to build your SEO. You can link back to your site with other blog posts that you have shared. You can link to other websites that have a better domain authority then you do. This helps to build your trust as a blogger and creates value for your readers.
CALL TO ACTION
At the end of your blog post, you don’t want your reader to just leave. You want to tell them what to do. We all want to be told what to do next. Give them a call to action. Whether that is to sign up for your freebie, to go to your Facebook page or Instagram page, or check out another blog post. Keep them busy. Keep them learning and checking you out even more.
I hope that you enjoyed these 5 parts of a blog post. Again, I want to say thank you for being here. It means a lot to me that you take your time out of your day to read my posts. I am looking forward to tomorrow’s post.
