A blog is a site published on the World Wide Web that is informative and it consists of discrete entries that are displayed in a manner that the most recent entry appears first. This means that a blog is a post that is public and should be credible enough. Anyone can write a blog, but can everyone write a successful blog?

Tips on how to write a successful blog

Know your audience

You should first and foremost know your audience well enough. Knowing who your audience is made of is essential in that this helps in choosing the topic to write on. Different audiences have different preferences and it would do good to keep this in mind.

For instance, if your readers are young entrepreneurs looking for ways on how to start a business, you probably need to provide them with information on how to how to raise capital to start the business. That kind of information is what helps you in narrowing down the topic to the particulars that spark interests in your readers.

Choose your topic and introduce it

After understanding your audience fully, choose the topic. This is actually the backbone of the entire blog. For example, if you are a nurse, you might want to write on how to clean a wound.

Let your introduction focus on the nursing profession in general then narrow down to the exact topic which is, 'Tips on how to clean a wound.' When introducing your title, make it pretty much general so the audience gets a hint of what the blog is about.

The most vital thing that you have to do is have a full grasp of the reader's attention. If you cannot keep the reader glued to the page for even a minute, they will definitely stop reading before long. To have their full attention, you can start off by telling a joke or a captivating story.

Then you explain the purpose of the blog and how it will be beneficial to the reader. This gets to the reader more because they now have more reason to keep reading.

Organize your content

Next, you have to organize your content for ease of comprehension. Sometimes, blog posts can be jammed with too much information of which some of it may not be of much use to the reader or that can even confuse the blogger himself.

The content has got to be organized systematically. The organization can take many forms such as sections, tips, lists or whatever else that is appropriate.


The next step is writing the blog itself. When writing, tell the story as if you are the one to read it yourself. Share how you feel as this involves the reader at a deeper level as if it was a face to face talk. Ensure that whatever you write is important and write it with passion.

Passion is infectious! When an idea pops up in your mind, let it not slip away unforgotten. Include it so long as it doesn't deviate from the topic.

Also include various styles of writing. When you happen to use just one style, the beauty of the face cover of the blog is not displayed and this puts the reader off. The blog doesn't necessarily have to be a specified length. What matters is the quality it has.

Proofread your work and include a CTA

Once done writing, you have to proofread your work. The editing bit is very crucial in blogging. Here, make sure that you choose a relevant and appealing image for your post.

The image itself is informational and should be carefully chosen. Check on your formatting and the styles used in writing the blog. As said earlier, the face cover ought to be beautiful. This kind of consistency makes your work look more professional and formal.

You should insert a call-to-action(CTA) at the end of the blog. The CTA indicates what you want the reader to do next; subscribe to your blog, download an eBook, read related articles and so on.

When your reader finishes reading and clicks on the CTA, you develop a lead and market your work. The reader is also able to access more blogs on the same subject or other related stuff. Lastly, pick a magnetic title that sums up your content.


Successful blogging does not just happen. It requires patience, being unique and lots of reading and writing.
