Get your blog ready
Writing a blog post is a little like driving; you can study the highway code (or read articles telling you how to write a blog post) for months, but nothing can prepare you for the real thing like getting behind the wheel and hitting the open road. Or something.
“Now that I’m done thoroughly mangling that vague metaphor, let’s get down to business.”
You know you need to start blogging today to grow your business, but you don’t know how. In this post, I’ll show you how to write a better blog in five simple steps that people will actually want to read. Ready? Let’s get started.
First, a disclaimer – the entire process of writing a blog post often takes more than a couple of hours, even if you can type eighty words per minute and your technical writing skills are sharp. From the seed of the idea to finally hitting “Publish,” you might spend several days or maybe even a week “writing” a blog post, but it’s important to spend those vital hours planning your post and even thinking about your post (yes, thinking counts as working if you’re a blogger) before you actually write it.
