6 Blogging Tips To Write A Blog Post That People Will Actually Read (Storytelling Techniques)

Blogging is popular. Everyone’s already doing it. You’re probably already doing it. But you know what? Compared to five, ten years ago, blogging is so common that people don't even read all the blog posts right now. Eight out of ten people will read your headline, but only two out of ten will click through and read your article. That just shows that people are desensitized to blog posts, and they're not really reading them.

Today I'm going to teach you how to write a blog post that people will actually read. So if you're going to write a blog post, there are a few things that you need to know.

blog-tips

Number one: Use subheadings.

Subheadings break down sections within your blog post, so it makes it easier to skim. Without subheadings, people won't be able to get the gist of your content without reading the whole thing, which means you're going to get less reader. Through subheadings, people can go down to the section of the blog post that they want to read, and read that area, and keep scrolling through.

Number two: Use photos/pictures.

PHOTO-USE

As they say, "A picture says a thousand words." If using graphics and images to explain the message that you're trying to convey, people are much more likely to read and stick around.

Number three: Write with the words "I" and "You".

INFOGRAPHIC-I&U
If you don't include the words "you" and "I", people aren't going to feel that it's a conversation. If they don't feel that it's a conversation, they're going to think of it as, like, a college lecture, and they are going to leave. When you're more conversational with people, they are more likely to engage, read, and respond.

Number four: Your paragraphs can't be more than five or six lines. The moment they're more than five or six lines, it's just overwhelming.


People don't want to go through that. If you look at my articles, you'll even notice that a lot of my paragraphs are only 5 or 6 lines. I even have some paragraphs that are only 4 line.

Number five: With your blog posts, make sure you cite your information. 

JUSTIFY


Don't just come up with the facts and data without citing it. If you do that, people won't trust you and the reader will not come back.

Number six: Make sure your article is really thorough and actionable.


MOTIVATIONAL-ARTICLE


If someone reads your article and they're like, "Oh, cool, I know I can go do something after reading this," they're going to be like, "Great, I should keep reading the content. If not then the reader will never come back for more articles.


As you follow these tips, you'll get more traffic and enhance your rankings. If you follow those tactics, you're going to create blog posts that people actually want to read.
