 Blogging How to Write a Good Blog Post

So what is the truth of developing one’s blogging to a point where they may make money with blogging?

Here are some facts that I’d like to share regarding my own story to give a more the truthful picture to those thinking about getting into blogging as a way to make a living.

                               Write It

It requires a centered long term attempt. I’ve been blogging for several years. The initial year wasn't for cash in any way (though I found out a lot about blogging in this year) and following I worked on my blogging and worked a regular job all the while trying to build my blogging up from a spare-time activity, to part time job to a full time business .

I’m frequently asked things like - ‘I have to make some cash really quick - how may you do it with a fresh blog?’

The median age of blogs in the Technorati Top 100 is upwards of three years - when the casual blogger has a quick rise to fame they're the exception. Establishing a successful blog takes a while (it requires time to establish readership, to solve how to monetize it and so forth) so take a long term plan of attack and pace yourself.

It requires a lot of effort. There’s been much talk of late about how blogging less may mean more from your blog. While I concur with this - that doesn’t imply you are able to simply muster up a couple of posts on a notion every couple days and expect the hits (and cash) to come rolling in.

Over the years I’ve constantly worked many hours a week on my blogging. Most bloggers that attain a full time living from blogging work comparable hours on it.
I would like to share a little information for novices on how to make cash blogging.
I hope you find it valuable to see the mix and assortment of ways to make money blogging.

AdSense can have an astonishing effect on blogs. Set the ads to show image and text based ads and I find that 250×300 pixel ads work better. You must make sure you have keyword rich articles however.

Affiliate programs can certainly add up. Make .sure that you get involved in promoting a quality product that goes with the content of your blog. The beauty of a lot of these programs is that they're of such high quality that they sell themselves!

Write and promote your own e-books or other products. Make sure you have a quality product and learn how to get affiliates involved in selling your product for you.

Use a continuity program. A continuity program is a web site where you bring in a recurring income from individuals who subscribe to a service you provide. Basically, it is like a membership site and these return monthly income from the members that are a part of it.

Private ad sales directly to advertisers have fallen partially due to the economic system as it is. This is still a way that you may bring in income from blogging depending upon who wants to advertize on your blog. Of course the better higher ranking your blog the more people will pay.

Chitka continues to be a great performer for blogs. They traditionally work better on product related blogs though their Premium ad units seem to convert well on a bigger array of blogs.

Amazon’s affiliate program is a big mover. Christmas (and the lead up to it) is an especially great time for Amazon.

In addition to all of the above there are a lot of littler incomes. A lot of these are from smaller ad programs that I test but none are large enough to truly rate a credit here but do a little research.

 Blogging How to Write a Good Blog Post

Readers are looking for quick and easy to digest information. As Peter Casier describes in
his post “The Art of Seduction,” if you want readers to actually read your post, you will have
to seduce them and make it worth their while.
There are many “How to write a good blog post” articles out there, but we decided to make
our own tailored specifically for guest authors of the Environment and Ecosystems Blog.


Before you start writing

Take a second to think, what is the purpose of writing this post?
Then write down the 3 main points that you want to make (try not to have more than 3 main points, remember blog posts should only be 400 – 800 words).

Good Lead

The first paragraph of your blog post is the most important. Pull the reader in. Excite them!
You can do this by posing a question, starting with an anecdote, drawing upon a current event, or grabbing their attention with a key finding or statistic – but whatever you do make sure it is relevant and interesting. One of the best ways to judge if you’re engaging readers is to think: would you be interested in reading your blog post based on this paragraph?

Another approach is to try the inverted pyramid style and put the most important and exciting information in the beginning of your post. Think about who, what, when, where whyand how. Then start adding the crucial information – arguments, story, issues, evidence, background, etc.

3. Keep the reader interested


Now it’s time to give the reader more information. Use evidence to support your opinions, bring in a human angle to your story, and/or develop an argument. Consider writing in the first person – remember that people connect well with other people’s experiences. People relate much more to personal stories than to any theory. Use analogies to help describe complex ideas. Bring in expert opinions and don’t be afraid to share counter opinions to yours in the post.

“If you get stuck, go back to the three main points that you started with and make sure
you’ve incorporated them.”
