Points I’ve learned from Publishing 101 Blog Posts –
Table of Contents
1. Creating Interesting Content
Engaging & Interesting content within the titles, in-body paragraphs, images, including the different things I have used in the article creation.
If you’ve been watching me for a long time, you must have seen the earlier stuff.
I don’t mind saying it, tedious! Because I was going through the same mindset, what are others making?
Their work has been seen & appreciated by people. Consequently, the outcome will remain similar, and I get admired too.
Hence, it took me quite some time to understand.
Moreover, I momentarily prefer to excite and bring enthusiasm at the initial look amongst the readers with my added touch plus flavor. So, I follow a 5 step process to make the title look captivating with such a writing piece that tries to sustain the reader’s interest throughout.
Therefore, stand out in your own eyes.
Significantly, don’t skip to appreciate yourself!
2. Learning Plus Managing WordPress App
What! Are you serious?
I know you must be having mixed reaction’s when you read that point.
This is something that I should have mastered in the first 10 blog posts entirely.
But, the scenario was quite different when I began.
I had no sense that a dedicated space for WordPress exists until I published my approximately 60-65 articles.
I used to publish them with the mindset that people seeking online would discover what I had to offer. Just!
You surely have missed the opportunity to reach out to more people in the community, are my accurate words.
I am yet to figure out several things in the WordPress app.
God Bless the readers of WordPress for helping me out. Furthermore, in my recent post, one of the readers commented that –
She wished that she could have read the whole post in the WordPress app itself.
It used to show in an excerpt where the readers have to click on the link beneath to view the full article on the main website.
You can see an example below –
Hence, she commented on that post and guided me a bit. I was able to locate the options in the settings, and now readers can see the full post in the WordPress app simply.
Hurray for the readers, and a slight for me too!
3. Use Infographic
I feel that just drafting down your thoughts would look lengthy, and it will remain simply a subject of getting lost between the words from a reader’s viewpoint. Like, really getting lost.
Infographics will make assure that readers will perceive engagingly. Hence, understanding in a way that would be cherished for long.
Likewise, I have created an Infographic concerning this article. You can see the points have been written in order-wise –
Assume you have written an article that tells about steps to something…
That step contains a lengthy description that it would become entangled to keep them remember.
As a consequence, you can present in a summary block with the help of an infographic. When someone reads, you can employ your creativity to make it appealing and interactive, plus valuable.
When you see an infographic, you remember the content in it for a more extended time.
Because the blend of colors, text, images effortlessly seize your attention which gets stuck in our understanding.
It’s a productive way to express anything.
4. Create Mails and Send them to Subscribers
Conveying my blog message via emails to Subscribers has remained an invaluable addition to the skills that I have acquired from publishing 101 blog posts.
Thus, I before-mentioned that in my initial days, I was publishing with the belief that my content could be viewed when someone performs an online search correlated to that. Lastly subscribed!
In that sense, I prepared a subscription form. Although I changed a lot, and subscription pop-up seemed well suited.
I commenced to send out emails to subscribers whenever I publish a new article.
That conclusively given rise to email creation and communicating abilities.
Apart from the blog, I attempt to show my artistic facet on emails as well. Because if my emails don’t inspire me, how can I anticipate others to read and appreciate them!
Hence, I strive to produce valuable content and spread it out to mails as well, manually.
Honestly, it’s been a perfect addition that has enhanced my skills via emails too.
Earlier, I don’t use to read the emails that arrive in the inbox.
Momentarily I seek to take inspiration and the efforts that other is putting within it.
5. If you Persevere, you will Push Yourself to Improve
Just hold the required thing very tight in your hands that it won’t slide at any expense.
In other words,
Thus, I held this writing and photo adventure pretty tight, that I sustain improving. You really never get to know that you are advancing, although the end outcome may shock you.
This point concerns all the careers.
For e.x, – If you don’t like running, and regardless you just keep on running for even 10 mins a day for 6 months, it would unquestionably improve you. The everyday running period would also be raised significantly.
You can make a daily habit and can incorporate it simply then.
Aha! Have you ever concentrated that the first thing you’ll require to do is brush tomorrow?
Hehe! Not at all.
Keep it simple then, similar to blogging. Include it as your daily responsibility.
6. Effective Vocabulary
I’ll remain honest with you, I was genuinely bad in Vocabulary when I got risen.
Vocabulary not only makes you sound polished, but you will also become considerably informed of the usage of words when you keep progressing.
Aha, Preserve is here!
As you can see, this point justifies the earlier point.
Whenever you see an offbeat word, write it down somewhere. Try to include those terms in your daily life.
God Bless my notebook writing!
The writing used to appear the same in my school days. Gosh, I haven’t improved in this spot.
Behind the scene, I have recently started jotting down the unusual words and gradually trying to take over them in the real-life.
7. Experiment with New Things in Blog Posts
As I proceeded onward, I experimented with several things within the articles.
I have done polls, images with texts, text formatting, and others.
Amongst them was VandayPodcast, I did two episodes and included them within the articles.
Shortly, I understood that podcasting is walking on another road right now. I will look ahead to utilizing podcasts in the future as I wanted to concentrate on blogging entirely.
Experimenting, eventually, signifies a pleasant user experience.
It enhanced my creative side in creating polls, writing a text on images, and especially podcasting.
8. Persistent + Consistent = Closer to Goal
The table-turning point, consistency.
Dreaming regarding something is one thing, and remaining persistent and consistent towards that goal is a world in itself.
The lockdown taught me the value of consistency.
As I run a travel and photography blog. Therefore, my mindset inevitably fills up that I have to escape someplace to create something.
But, the question is, where to go in lockdown, how to go outside?
The thought arose that wherever I have been, I didn’t utilize that efficiently. It means that there is much more that I can tell.
So, I went deep inside my thoughts and commenced creating by remaining consistent.
For e.x – I had been to Chitkul quite back, and year after the lockdown happened. I thought that I didn’t utilize Chitkul adequately and had published only one article concerning that. Following, I submitted 3 more blog posts regarding Chitkul.
You may have taken several road trips in your entire …
The motive of telling is that everything stays within our minds. You need to focus more frequently on your thoughts plus ideas.
9. Read Additional Blogs
Reading has not been my forte since childhood.
That’s why during literature classes in school, I often used to trace over the images with a pencil. HaHa!
I hope that you did the same sometimes! Many times…
The things are pretty opposite, now I often used to read other blogs. Not simply travel & photography related, but other niche blogs like fitness & fashion too.
However, my eyes get stuck on the travel magazines but succeed in reading additional niche blogs.
It always feels great to not simply read but appreciate efforts that people are putting toward what they wanted to tell.
10. Recheck 3’ice Before Publication
There’s a big world of online readers.
You don’t want your message to seem ineffective & not thoughtfully penned.
For e.x, – Yesterday, I went to a pace, it looked beatyfull from every side. Therefore, I adored it from sometimes and left after.
Read that carefully again, can you locate mistakes?
I think you understood that why I added this point.
It becomes unlikely to keep everything up to the mark at the very first. Hence, you should be aiming at Rechecking for assured.
I have developed a habit of Rechecking 3 times and reading aloud before publishing a blog.
You should surely locate the mistakes when you do these many Rechecks.
11. Mad Man Behind Creation
I trust that the connection among readers and creators is of utmost importance.
The person who is creating, let suppose, writing should come out as identity.
The readers additionally want to perceive that who is the personality behind that creation.
Hence, within writing, you should try to include a photograph of yourself justifying that point. It would eventually enhance whatever you want to tell the readers.
In the commencement, I don’t use to include myself in any of my blog posts. Lately, I have begun to show the individuality that would ultimately intensify the relationship connecting the reader and creator.
That concludes what I wanted to say on the Publication of my 101 blog posts.
Applauding! Once again…
I hope that I succeeded in adding value to your life & your every minute consumed reading.
Now, it’s your time to share,
Did I succeed in providing content to y’all in my 102nd blog?
