A Simple Exercise For Writing Blog Posts

Written By Donna-Marie  |  Blogging, Content Marketing 

Hey go-getters! Today, we're going to unlock your inner writer, diving into the world of blog post writing.

I know, I know, not everyone feels they were born to write. You may be someone who would rather face a plate of broccoli than the blank page!

But here's the sunny side: writing blog posts, especially in our buzzing business world, is an important skill. So, even if the mere thought of this feels like scaling Mount Everest in flip-flops, I've got a little secret sauce that's going to transform your writing journey.

Of course, you could just pay someone to do this for you. That's a great option. But if you prefer to do this yourself, it's not as hard as it may seem.

Let's get into it!


Outline Your Way to Success

Imagine your blog post is an exciting journey. You wouldn't hit the road without a map, would you?

Outlining is your trusty GPS. It's not about counting words; it's about charting a clear path with easy-to-follow bullet points. This simple method is a game-changer in writing blog posts that resonate and engage.

Start Simple

When it comes to writing blog posts, you don't need a flashy title from the get-go. That can wait. Focus first on your core topic.

Picture it as your Table of Contents – list out your key ideas with supporting points beneath them. Don't stress over crafting perfect sentences; just spill those thoughts onto paper (or screen).

This is your first step in the journey of writing blog posts that truly connect.

The Magic of Three

Here's a golden nugget: aim for at least three main points in your blog posts, each backed by two or three juicy facts or insights. This is the backbone of your post.

With this solid structure, you can weave your points into a story that flows naturally. It's a foolproof way to keep your readers engaged and make the writing process a breeze.

Why Outlining Works Wonders

This approach is kind of like bullet journaling for your blog. It's all about getting your ideas structured in a relaxed, no-pressure way. This way you focus on the flow rather than perfection from the start, making the writing process less daunting.

Working with a team?

Pass your outline to a virtual assistant or writer to polish the intro and conclusion. It's teamwork in action!

Embrace the Power of Delegation

If the thought of writing your own blog posts still makes you a bit queasy, it's totally okay to seek help.

Not everyone is a born writer and that's fine. Everyone has their own unique talents and skills and it's best that you focus on them.

When you bring a writer into your team, remember that quality is key. Find someone who's not just a wordsmith but gets your brand's vibe. It's essential for your blog posts - and other content - truly reflect your voice.

Finding the Right Fit

Hunting for the perfect fit?

Scour social media, ask for recommendations and don't hesitate to conduct interviews. Start small – perhaps with a single blog post – and then increase their role gradually.

Clear communication and realistic expectations are a crucial part of the process.

Take the First Step

And there you have it – a simple, stress-free formula for writing blog posts.😊

Whether you're a writing enthusiast or someone who's more at ease speaking than writing, this method is designed to make the process less intimidating and more fun. Every remarkable journey begins with a single step, right?

Happy writing! Remember, in the world of blogging, your voice and your story are your superpowers. Let's unleash them starting from right now! You've got this.🌟
