What makes a good blog post?

  • Should have images
  • Should be easy to read
  • Have good SEO
  • Good grammar
  • Have headings
  • Gets you more traffic

Now that you know what a good blog post is let’s get on with it and see what to include in every blog post.


Have you ever got on a page and all you see are just long paragraphs that never seem to finish? That’s what am talking about, using headings to at least separate some of those paragraphs makes it easy to understand and doesn’t make the reader think that they are never going to reach the end. When you use headings, it makes the reader get your topic even more and it does make it easy for reading which takes me to my second point.


I am not telling you not to use good vocabulary and all but make sure your posts have a flow to them to make it easy to be read and understood. Make the reader not to have to go back and repeat a sentence all because they never understood exactly what you meant, that’s why having good grammar in your content is really crucial but thanks to technology you can use spell checkers. Nowadays, people just want to reach to the solution instead of waiting for it.Β Be straight to the point without beating around the bush.


When you are writing about a particular topic and you know you have another post that might interest the reader or would be related to what you are writing about, then that’s where links get involved. Let’s say you have just decided that you want to start a blog but how you ask? Well here is a simple guide. You see what I did there, put links to help the reader get to more of your content.

Almost everyone is usually attracted to anything that is visually appealing and Β so even for blog posts, good images are good and if you are in pinterest and need to pin your images, they need to be pinnable and just not dull looking images. I usually create two images for each blog post in order to pin them at separate times. Make sure that the images you use in your blog posts are also relatable to what your blog post is about like a recipe requires a picture of what you made, but you can still get away with random pictures sometimes if you know how to edit them.

Last but not least


This is where good SEO comes to work, If you want your post to be able to be found in google, and we know what that means, more traffic to your site which is a plus. When I started I never knew about SEO but now am hooked, wordpress SEO by Yoast is what I use. Once you install it, it will tell you all the steps to do to in order to optimize your blog post.


Don’t forget to make your audience want to come back to your blog, be sure to ask them what they thought about it and if they have any questions, better yet ask them a question because, why not?
