The Perfect Blog Post?

Don’t try to plan everything out to the very last detail. I’m a big believer in just getting it out there: create a minimal viable product or website, launch it, and get feedback. ~Neil Patel

I have to admit that sometimes I am envious of others blog posts. They way they are organized, for others how they have a theme for every day. Then they are those who can rant that leaves you feeling their anger.

Every once in awhile I get to thinking how I could change my blog, maybe give it some spice, but that just wouldn’t be me. My style is the result of many years, yet there are those times I feel like I am in a rut.

There must be something that is working within my blog posts, something that I am not grasping. There are those posts where when finished I think I have nailed it only to receive minimal response. The ones where I feel should have been throw in the trash are the ones that surprise me. They are the ones that seem to have something that speaks to the reader.

So the question arises, “What is the perfect blog post”?

Could it be the writing, not necessarily so. I am not the best of the writers, but, I am not surely the worst.

Is it the beautiful images that are posted? I love great pictures, I can barely point and click with a simple camera. So, images are not it.

Would it be the in depth knowledge that the writer brings to an issue? There are many who do this, I love that because I can read their post to the benefit of my learning. For me research is something I lose interest in. I never received great marks in Science class.

So dear reader let me leave you with another quote that sums up what makes a great blog post.

“Don’t focus on having a great blog. Focus on producing a blog that’s great for your readers.”Brian Clark

    I don’t think there is a right way to do a blog post. There are some posts I’m really happy with that don’t get a lot of response, and others that I think are kind of fluffy that get lots of interest, so I think there are a lot of other factors at play besides how good the post is.

    I also think different approaches work for different bloggers. For me, organization isn’t something I aspire to; it’s something I rely on to function. What might look impressive to others actually makes my life so much easier.

    Welllll… people have suggested I try just one topic. Whoops. 😀

    If you want lots of lots of followers and comments, here’s what you do:
    1. Be a sexy, young woman and post pictures of yourself. Make sure you write a lot of phrases like “I don’t know why so many people like me…”
    2. Write about interesting issues and make sure your tags match those issues.
    3. Ask questions!
    4. Visit other blogs and leave them interesting comments.
    5. Do lots of phishing stuff like stalking new blogs.

    (some of these suggestions may have been somewhat facetious, while also being accurate)

      Some of your tips are useful Chelsea. However, I am not a young woman…lol
      Stalking blogs seems like it could get me into hot water. Maybe it is the word itself that sounds dangerous…lmao

    Well, I’m a middle aged man, so…sexy pictures and “don’t know why people like me” is out the window.
    What I can claim to be absolutely true is the fact that you should combine 2 elements when writing:
    1) VALUE
    2) UNIQUENESS
    You have to give the audience something that is worth to them and you have to be 100% yourself (no PLR).
    If every article you write has these 2 elements you’re on the right track. Then you can choose other strategies and techniques to implement, be it images, video, SEO, etc. Write the way you write. Can’t expect to be liked by everyone, but being yourself shows.
    If you lack value and your content isn’t original, I promise you wont get results whatever technique to promote you use.
    Here’s an article about on-page SEO that I use often to promote. I think it’s very valuable information, especially for people just starting out.
    If you didn’t notice it strongly focuses on value and being unique.
