How to Write a Blog
How to write a blog is something every blogger once had to learn. When I started blogging I was much more concerned on how to technically write a blog post and use WordPress than planning the bigger picture.
I became very hung up on what I would write about. I knew who my target market was from the beginning but I did not have any clarity on what to write about to attract the readers I wanted. I did an online course which was great but most of what I was learning I did not understand at that stage.
How to write a blog – I was taught to do my key word research but as I did not really understand it or why I was doing it I just skipped it – ouch! Big mistake!!
I recently completed an online course; Posting on Purpose for Profit: How to make $100,000 (or more!) in 12 Months (or Less!) by Rob Fore.
Adrienne Smith invited me to a webinar Rob was running. What he said just made so much sense. It really is a common sense approach and system of Posting on Purpose for Profit – just as the words imply – seems obvious doesn’t it? But it is not obvious for many bloggers nor is it the approach that everyone takes. How to write a blog was taking on a new meaning for me.
I think success leaves clues and Rob Fore has used the formula in his course to create six different 6 figure incomes. He is worth listening to I think!
But as I said Rob Fore’s way is not the only way. Rob posted on Facebook recently that both he (Rob) and Ray Higdon earn thousands each month blogging. He said we both have completely different styles. I (Rob) focus on SEO and he (Ray) just posts great content daily. – So clearly there is more than one way to go about how to write a blog!
David Wood has a personal blog and is also the co-founder of Empower Network. David built his brand and business with Ray’s approach to daily blogging. David tells people regularly he is not technical and if you look at his site you will see his topics are rather more random. David has been the number one recruiter with several companies with his approach. He approaches the question of how to write a blog with his own very unique style.
So “how to write a blog” clearly does not have one simple answer. I do believe you must have a strategy and a routine that you follow. Will you use Rob’s formula or just give daily great value like Ray?
Not everyone has the time to blog daily. If you are working full time and have a family maybe that is not the best approach for you. If you are not going to blog daily then make your posts count and check out Rob’s Posting on Purpose for Profits course (this is my affiliate link).
Rob and Ray are not the only successful bloggers there are many others. I am using these two to illustrate two different approaches that are both bringing great results.
So “how to write a blog” is not clear cut but there are some great bloggers with systems.
If you found this post of value please leave me a comment below and share it. I would love to hear your approach to blogging. Do you have a system? How often to you blog?
Have an awesome day.
