Writing and managing a blog can be a fun and relaxing thing to do that lets you connect with people from various walks of life, and if you are good enough then it can also turn into a way of making a living. If you want to improve your blog writing and make it as impactful as possible then here are a few steps that can really help you become a better writer and waste less time on dead ends.
The first thing that one should do before working on their blog is to sit down and just brainstorm; brainstorming can be done at any time of the day for as long as you like, it helps you gather ideas and give them shape. While brainstorming, having somewhere to jot down ideas as they come to mind can be an effective way of remembering everything, and once you have completed brainstorming you can then take all the ideas that came to your mind and give them some shape.
While the results of a good brainstorming session can be pretty helpful, they are almost always very chaotic. In order to make good use of out whatever you have come up with, it is important to give them shape; this process is known as outlining and is great for providing you with a kind of work plan that will make transforming all of your ideas into writing much easier. Outlining can save a lot of time and make your writing much more effective since the final draft will have a more impressive execution of ideas.
Another thing that you can do to keep that dreadful writer’s block away can be to spend some time making a rough draft of your blog on a piece of paper; handwriting can often give your mind a kick and get your creative side flowing. Writing something on a piece of paper also lets you keep a track of everything that you have written since you can simply backspace bad intros and weak sounding headings out of existence, having all your mistakes in front of you while you work can be highly productive.
Once you have all of your ideas neatly arranged in front of you and you have found an angle to write with then begin with the actual typing, write the main body of your blog and once it is completed, go through it and start making changes, additions and revisions to give your work a layer of polish.
You should leave the editing and graphics gathering part for last so that you will not have to spend extra time on making changes later on, and keep in mind that there is no fixed approach to writing a perfect blog. Everyone has their own style; you should experiment with your pre, mid and post writing practices until you find a routine that is comfortable and helps you become an effective writer.
