How To Write a Blog Post

Introduction

To blog on your personal website, you will need to have ideas of what you are going to be writing about. There are many blogs out there, all a little different than the next. Some blogs have certain themes that each post revolves around, and others are more personal and about daily life. Popular theme blogs include those about fashion, family life, and shopping with coupons. If you have a passion about something and feel that you can make an informative blog about the subject, a theme blog may be a great choice for you. If you simply love to write and share your thoughts with the world, you may consider a more personal blog about daily life in your shoes.

Step 1

When getting ready to blog, you must choose the website that you will be hosting the blog on. Popular options include Blogger, Wordpress, and Tumblr. Browse around at other blogs that you like to read and see what website that are using to host their blog. Each website gives a different feel to your blog and have extra features and options. If most of your friends use Blogger, you may want to use this website so that it is simple to follow eachother and comment to blog posts. While Blogger and Wordpress are great options for blogs where you will be writing a lot, Tumblr is ideal for posting pictures that you love.

Step 2

Sign up for a blog account at the website of your choice. Signing up is simple. Just enter in your information and the name that you would like to use to blog with. The name of your blog is very important. This is what other people online will know you by and the name of your blog can either make it stand out or hide in the shadows. Give your blog name some thought before completing the sign up process.

Step 3

Once you are signed up, you're ready to blog. Think about what you will want your first post to be about. Even write down some ideas before starting your draft. If you have a passion for writing, the content may come easily to you. Your blog should be a safe place where you can express yourself without worrying about what others may think. Once you're ready to blog out your thoughts, click to start a new post on your blog dashboard.

Step 4

There is no right or wrong way to blog. This is entirely up to you. You can write your blog in paragraph form, add photographs, post videos, anything that you want to share is up to you. Blog hosts make it easy to blog. Just type in your post to the text box and change the font color, size, and text with the editing options. Once you get the hang of how the system works, making the perfect blog post will come easy to you.

Step 5

After you have published a blog, go to your blog site and check over it for any errors that you might have missed before. If there are any errors or you think of something that you would like to add, you can simply edit the blog post. Save and re-publish to update the post.

Tips

Post to blog as many times a day as you want. The more you post about topics that others enjoy, the more recognition your blog will get. Before you know it, you'll have tons of followers.
