I just read a lengthy post from someone’s blog and I have something to share.
1) Go back to your primary school lessons and remember what your teacher taught you about writing composition.
There has to be an introduction, your arguments in points and a closing para that slam shut the whole package. Many bloggers who think they are so perfect and good in their English failed to remember this. I finished reading an over 400 words post and I walked away with ‘WTF is she talking about?’
2) Say what you mean and say it loud
I hate posts that have no opinions. I hate people sitting on fences too. If you dislike something, say it. Give your valid reasons and no one is going to burn your doggie. Otherwise, just keep the mouth shut and find something else that you have an opinion on. Like which dog food is good for your doggies and not try to discuss about the latest SERPs or SEOs. Your post just give me the impression that you are an old aunt mumbling about her glorious past aka boring, heard that kind of stuffs. (read bloggingcents who wrote Why You Should QUIT Reading Blogs)
3) Don’t use bombastic words
No one is going to be impressed with it. Unless you belong to those elitist writers circle. Otherwise if you think Google suxs, just say Google suxs. Full stop.
4) Keep it short and simple – KISS
If you are writing a personal blog, you can ramble on from topic to topic. Bad weather to your PMS to politics and etc in one blog post. If you are trying hard to write a niche blog, stay with your title and niche and stop there.
The end. Class dismiss.
