Choose a topic that means something to you
The first step to writing a blog is choosing a topic for your blog article. For bloggers, it’s important to figure out what kind of content to put out, keeping a target audience in mind. Trending topics are one option that can be used to get content. Another way is to write content on topics that one is interested in.
Come up with a catchy title
For every great blog post created, it is the headline that gives a snippet of what the writer is telling his or her readers. An important tip for aspiring bloggers would be to come up with a title before actually beginning the article. This is a definite plus as it will help the writer figure out the direction he or she wants to take the blog in. And of course, the catchier the title, the more likely people will click on it to find out more.
Use the right keywords
One of the most important parts of blogging is keyword research. If the writer wants people to visit his or her blog, then it is essential that they choose the right ‘search’ words or ‘keywords’. When put in, they will serve as a guide to finding the appropriate content on the blogger’s website.
Use facts and figures to make it interesting
It has been observed that using facts and figures to describe the content in blog articles makes them more appealing to readers.
Know what’s trending online
One of the best ways to get more visitors to your blog is to write on topics that are popular and being shared on social media. These topics are the ones that are most searched and give a better understanding of what readers everywhere are looking for. Aspiring bloggers should use platforms like Google and Twitter to stay updated with things that are going on everywhere which relate to topics like food, travel, tech, etc. Being aware of this will give them the ability to write articles from their own perspective.
These were just five tips for aspiring bloggers that he shared with the Bootcamp Goa students among others. Given the vast amount of information available on the Internet related to blogging, he supplemented this knowledge with resources that the students could use to create interesting content for any blogs they might work on in the future.
