Best way to write blog in 2020
1. Find the right topic
Let’s say you have a coffee blog and you want to write blog posts that will succeed on Google and social networks.
What you can do first of all is to include your topic in the “Reply to the public” section to find out what interests people at the moment. If it is too wide, you may have to occupy a niche on the same level.
If you need more ideas, you can extend your search from 12 months to the last five years.
If your blog is new, find a topic that is a long-tail keyword, as it’s usually less searched but easier to find.
In this example, the best option would be to write a post of different brands of coffee machines with disposable boxes.
2. Outline your blog idea
From here you need to think about what you want to write in your post.
Do you want this to be a post on the list? News bulletin? Tutorial?
In our example, this will most likely be summaries of various coffee machines, but if you do a quick search on Google, you will see that all the posts are posts on the list, so you need to have additional content to make it better.
Maybe there is a section on how to care for your coffee machine, a few videos about using disposable capsules and the like.
You can also start exploring coffee machines and get the technical specifications and features to include in your blog. Youtube reviews can help you with ideas too.
3. Write your first draft
Now is the time to write your first draft. During this process, let the idea flow and find a writing process for you. I like the top-down approach, but it might be easier for you to write the main part of the post – reviews – and add an introduction and conclusion later.
Do what works for you, but do your best to write it in a simple but attractive way.
4. Add images and final information
From here you can add images and any details and finish your post. If you want, you can use an editing tool such as Grammarly to ensure error-free recording.
5. Post a message
When you’re ready, post! You have created a blog post that is long and interesting, but at the same time contains a lot of useful information that will help your readers who will soon become readers.
6. Have a page hiring me on your blog
To get a lot of freelance blogs, I suggest you have a section in your menu, for example, Hire Me or Services.
This immediately tells the potential reader that you also offer blogging and writing services (and possibly other services).
This is something that I have never done on my passionate blog, and this may be the reason that I only had a few blogs.
If you really put the Hire Me page on your passionate blog and find that after a few months no one is interested in your freelance blogs, consider creating a site for writers. This is highly optimized for your writing business.
7. Make it easy to contact you
If you offer a freelance blog as a service, make sure you are very easy to contact.
Do not bury your email address or contact form on the page inside the page.
Instead, put “Contact” as a menu item, and add “Share” buttons on social networks and various ways to contact you throughout your blog.
On my contacts page, I have five ways to contact me:
