In preparation for an interview on writing great blog content, I jotted down some ‘quick tips’. While they are all short I hope that they might spark some ideas – enjoy!

Tell your story – it is what makes your content unique Share how you feel – it will take your readers to a deeper place You’ll never please everyone – the sooner you come to peace with this, the betterWrite about things that matter to you – passion is infectiousInform, Inspire and Interact – aim to do these things every week!Experiment with different styles of writing – it will help you find your voiceMix up the length of your posts – short can be sweet but long can be epic!When an idea strikes – drop everything and capture it! Do everything you can to understand who is reading your blog – it will make you more useful to them Before you publish – ask what you want your reader to do after reading your post – and edit accordingly Become hyper aware of problems – and obsess over writing posts that solve themPut aside time to create quality content – it doesn’t just appear Put aside time to edit and polish your posts – it will take them to the next levelGet a life – you’ll be a much more interesting writer if you’ve lived a little Ask your readers questions – it will make them feel like they belong and you’ll learn a lot too! Take your readers on a journey – posts that build from one to another can be powerful Brainstorm regularly – generating ideas for future posts now can save a lot of pain later Not every post needs to go viral – shareable content will help you grow but it may not serve your current readers best Write, Write Write – the more you write, the better you will get Publish selectively – you don’t need to publish everything you write
