Most people who browse the Internet want to read articles that is of high quality and also articles which will be benefiting to them. So writing high quality articles for your blog can make your blog successful, but you have to know how to write those articles so that your blog readers love your blog.
In this article I will be giving you some 5 tips on how you can writing and publishing blog posts that make your readers fall in love with your blog.
Have A Plan Before You Start Writing
Before you start writing you need to have a plan for what you will be writing about for your blog post to turn out great.
Most bloggers fail to publish awesome content because they didn’t plan their blog post before they started their writing process.
If you want your blog post to turn out awesome then you must first plan it. This means you may need to get a pen and paper or a notepad app on your smart phone. Brainstorm for titles that you would like to write about.
When thinking about titles for your post, you may come up with more than one title. Not to worry, this is great because you can then choose from the list of titles that you have noted and analyze which one would grab the attention of people more so that they will want to read the entire article.
After you have the title for the blog post, you can now list the points of the article which you would like to discuss. These can be referred to as sub-headings.
When you have come up with the sub-headings you can now start your writing process. Write your introduction for the article and make sure that it is appealing to reader.
Always have a great introduction to your blog posts because this is what determines if the reader will continue reading to the end of the post.
Write A Little Each Day
When writing your blog post you don’t necessarily have to finish it in one day. Some blog posts are long and lengthy and may take longer to write.
If you plan on writing a long article then you may also need some time to do research so that you can get your facts straight before you start the writing process for your article.
You can plan your post, just as I had mentioned in the first point above and then start writing the contents of the blog on another day.
Why shouldn’t you rush to writing your blog post?
Most of us today we live busy lives and this is why writing a well detailed blog post may take more than one day to complete.
Not only that, we don’t want to make any mistakes while writing, we want to get our facts straight before writing and we also want to deliver that blog post so that whoever is reading it gets the fullness of what is being said in the article.
Also writing a little each day will help you to become a better writer each day. What you did yesterday while writing you can improve on it today and improve on what you did today, tomorrow. Doing that will help you to become a better writer in no time.

Avoid Distractions While Writing
Distractions… Distractions… Distractions!
That is major killer to writing awesome blog post.
Most times while writing we have tons of distractions around us which causes us to lose focus while writing.
I can attest to that. Most times while writing my cellphone goes off, notifications from emails or social media sites, and other stuff always distract me and cause me to lose my concentration while writing.
In order to overcome that what I normally do is to put my cellphone on silent, turn off all notifications and put myself in an environment where distractions are less likely to happen.
When distractions aren’t around you then your only focus will be on the writing of your article. This will help you to think about your readers so that you can deliver your blog post to them in a professional manner.
Remember that distractions can make you lose your chain of thought without you even knowing it and this is why you should avoid distractions while writing your blog posts.
If thought there is a major distraction where you have to stop writing, then remember point number two. You can always continue your blog post writing a next day.
Make Blog Post Easy To Read & Understand
Lots of people don’t like when things are complicated and hard to understand. The same can be said of your blog post, if it is hard to read and understand then your readers will struggle to read your contents or even worst which is end up leaving your blog.
The easier it is to read your articles then the more traffic you will end up getting. Your readers will stay longer on your blog and they are more likely to share it if the content is unique.
Most people will learn or gain knowledge from reading if the article which they are reading is easier to read. This is why our articles must be easy to read.
Fonts should not be small or have a bright color that can be somewhat blinding to the eye.
Normally blogs have a white or gray content area with black font. It is best to stick with that type of theme for your blog.
So be sure to write articles which are easy to read, your blog reader will love your blog even more for that.
Proofread Article & Edit Before Publishing
After you have finished writing your article you may want to take some time to read it over.
Why is that?
This is because all of us are imperfect humans and we tend to make mistakes all the time. So while reading over the article you may want to check for spelling errors and also the use of punctuation. Using a wrong punctuation in the right place or using the right punctuation in the wrong place can convey the wrong impression in a point that you are trying to make.
If you found mistakes while reading over your article then you should correct these so that your blog post can be awesome.
After that you are now ready to publish your article for your readers to gain knowledge on what you have written.
