I have been blogging for over 2 years now and I am loving the success that I am having with blogging. I never imagined that I would have had this much success when I first started out online.
Blogging is a form of publishing articles so that other can read online. This means you have to do lots of writing so that others can have something to read.
Some new bloggers struggle to write blog posts and this is why they don’t normally participate in guest blogging. In order to become a great blogger then you have to practice writing. Write everyday until you are perfect.
I love to write blog posts or email newsletters, I am a very busy person and I don’t like to spend too much time writing. This is why I write my blog posts in 20 minutes (or more, depending on how much research or information I put into the article).
Here are some tips to write your blog posts in 20 minutes time.
[box type=”spacer”]Start With A Title[/box]
One of the first part of an article is the title. This is what your visitors will see when they come to your blog. If the title for your article is appealing then your visitors will want to read it. Write interesting, appealing and eye-catching titles so this will make your blog visitors want to read more.
Remember now, you want to write your blog post in about 20 minutes, so don’t spend too much time on coming up with a title. But keep in mind to make it catchy.
[box type=”spacer”]Write The Post Introduction[/box]
I think a great blog post should have an introduction for wetting the reader’s appetite to make them want to read more. I always strive to write a funny or inspiring introduction to catch my readers attention so that I can get the to read the full article.
Again, don’t spend too much time on introductions if you want to get your article writing done in 20 minutes. So be sure to keep your article introduction short yet spicy.
[box type=”spacer”]Jot Down Main Points[/box]
When you jot down your main point on what you want to write about in your blog post then you don’t have to spend much time brainstorming for points to add your your post. Having main post on your note pad can make your article writing smooth and also saves you time when writing.
When you jot down main points then its like half of the article is already completed. After you do that, then you are now ready to write.
[box type=”spacer”]Start Writing Your Post[/box]
In order to complete your article in 20 minutes then you have to make sure that you can type fast, if not then you may go over your 20 minutes mark.
My suggestion to you is that you practice typing everyday so that you can get familiar with the keyword and know where each letter is.
Now that you have the title to your post, the introduction and the main points written down (which may take up about 6-7 minutes); its time for you to start writing your blog post (for about the next 12-14 minutes).
Each point that you have written down you are now going to write paragraphs for each point. Write so that your readers understand each point. Make sure not to jumble each sentence to each other because this will make it difficult to read. Use paragraphs to space each section so that it will also make your writing look neat.
If you need to use keywords and images then you may go over the 20 minutes mark, but no worries, your writing was completed and you can now publish your article.
I took about 25 minutes to write this article, almost 700 words, and this is a short time in writing articles. Imagine if I was to spend all day doing article writing, I would have thousands of articles piled up waiting to be published.
What is it like for you when it comes to article writing? How long does it take you?
