An article that can create value consistently is the key to building an uber-successful blog. However, many bloggers find it tough to write what readers love reading. Starting a blog is easy but maintaining it and nurturing it for months and years is a difficult task. Often, bloggers find little time to write for weeks and slowly go offline with no articles being published.

Recently, a friend of mine started a blog on motivation. He got a good response from the audience. But then, he wasn’t able to maintain a consistent posting schedule. He shared that when he publishes a post on his blog and shares it on social media, it increases his traffic compared to when he is not publishing.

Let me share with you the exact 5 actionable tips I shared with my friend to write better blog posts in less time:

1. Use templates for your blog posts

As a blogger, writing a post requires a few hours daily. Some topics may need extra research. So, you need to calm yourself down and make a post template. With this template, you’ll just add in the content every time you write a new blog post.

For example, if your website is about writing product reviews, your blog format will be the same. Divide your blog post into three steps:

  1. The introduction
  2. Body
  3. Closing

In the introduction section, write about the problem you are going to talk about. Give them empathy over the issue and then promise them that there are solutions. In the body section, turn your solutions into points and explain each of them. Now, in the closing section, write about the conclusion in regard to the whole blog post. 

This template helps you write a post in a faster way. Once you see a template with three to four sections, it becomes easy for you to put in information and publish it as soon as possible.

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all: Read a lot and write a lot.” –Stephen King

2. Use Tools For Proofreading

Once you write a blog post using your template, the next step is to edit it. Use a professional proofreading tool to edit your blog effortlessly.

I’ve been using Grammarly premium version for more than six months now, and it’s doing an amazing job for me. It helps in correcting grammar, spelling errors, adding all the punctuation and aligning the content for the audience. As a blogger and freelancer, proofreading tools are lifesavers.

3. Sharpen The Idea Of The Blog

What is the thought behind your blog that you want to share with your readers? Ask yourself this question before writing, and you will get accurate points out of it. Once you write your first draft, go through it and see if the direction of the blog is conveying the idea in a better manner or not.

Sometimes it happens that the bloggers may get off track of the topic. Therefore, ask yourself the question  is it solving the problem of the readers or not? The more you get clear and specific in your article, readers will absorb it in the same manner.

4. Write in “I” or “You” voice

There is nothing wrong with using a passive voice but when you are talking to your readers, use the first person or second person. Writing in the first or second person can help you make a connection with your readers in a better way. They are just feeling that you are pointing them out directly.

So, it’s necessary to make a connection as well as give a friendly feeling to your readers. Write your blog with a constant perspective to help readers understand your angle. Stick with the one point of view throughout your article.

“Blogging is to writing what extreme sports are to athletics: more free-form, more accident-prone, less formal, more alive. It is, in many ways, writing out loud.” – Andrew Sullivan

5. Add A Unique Point Of View

Every reader comes to your blog only for one reason – your opinion matters to them. As a blogger, you should use your opinions. I have a website and write on various topics like freelancing, entrepreneurship, blogging, and e-commerce.

I write the things which other marketers have also written. But my opinion is my unique selling point. Whether I am writing a book review or a WordPress review or sharing my freelancing story, I add my opinion in every different aspect. This is why readers come to my blog and share it too because they find my opinion valid.

Blogging is an amazing source to increase readership but implementing these tips can surely make your blog worth reading. Also, by using some tools and blog templates, it can ease out your work and you can become a powerful writer by keeping the post schedule on time and delivering the things readers need. It’s also not about getting it ready in a short time but also about raising the blog quality.

“It’s been 2 years since I left writing, how would I start it again?” I cried to my friend.

I left writing because I felt it was the core reason for my depression, but I was totally wrong.
