 One of the most important aspects of blogging is writing a compelling blog post.In my opinion it
is the most crucial.It does not matter if you are doing a great job driving traffic to your site,if the
content is crap you will get nowhere.Fortunately you don't need a degree to write compelling
blog posts,it can be easily learned.

 There are a number of options to consider when writing blog posts.You can concentrate on
pure fresh content that is informative,valuable and well written ;write product reviews which
would help buyers make informed decisions before making purchases or share your opinions
and thoughts concerning various news publications.

 As I indicated earlier,the skills for writing compelling posts can be easily developed ,it depends
on one's interest and determination.Providing comprehensible, factual and search engine
optimized content is the desire of every blogger and below are some guidelines which are
helpful for efficient blogging.

 * Avoid writing very long sentences and paragraphs. They usually deter readers from reading
everything - bear in mind readers usually lose interest within the first 20seconds .Short
paragraphs incite further reading.

 * Create attention - Make your titles attractive and search engine optimized.

 * Inspire desire - For a reader to purchase a product you are promoting they should be
convinced that it is a must have,thus it is essential that your writing generates that compelling
desire for the product.If you are writing for information purposes only you can apply the same
principle - the reader should be convinced enough to read more and stick around for long.

* Don't take it too serious - Most readers tend to relate better to blog with a less formal tone.

* Spice your blog with some humor. A little amusement makes reading exciting.

* Write like your livelihood depends on it - Let that dedication to your post be evident.

  * White space is a valuable asset. Use it. It makes reading easier. Nothing is harder to read
than a thick block of text

 * Use bullet points generously. They effectively hammer home the salient points.

 * Use subheadings regularly,it makes it easier to scan the blog for specific interests.

 * Choose your tone and keep it consistent throughout the blog.

 * Include a desired call for action - It is important that you spell out the desired action you want
your readers to take. There is always something you want your readers to do,purchase a
product ,subscribe or leave a comment. A smart blogger does well to ensure that readers stick
around for long and take an action.

 * Always do a spell check before posting your blogs.Too many errors gives a doubtful
impression.

* Don't include any irrelevant points - Readers may miss your core points.

 * Don't use slang terms and if necessary keep it minimal as some readers are easily offended.
Use words that many would understand. Bear in mind that your readers come from diverse
educational and cultural backgrounds.

* Use minimal abbreviations - too many makes reading difficult.

 Sincerity and dedication are virtues that people are attracted to, so in trying to share your
knowledge,views and ideas ,that attribute should be felt in your blog.Readers do appreciate it.
