Tip #6 Make Your Post Unique (Even If The Idea Isn’t)
Coming up with 100% original blog post ideas isn’t a very easy thing to do. If you make a quick Google search, chances are someone else has already written about it. So, what you should do in this scenario? You have to find a new angle. For example, if someone came up with “5 Reasons Why You Should Be A Freelancer“, you can write “10 Reasons To Start Freelancing“.
Tip #7 End With A Punchy Conclusion
After you’re done with your introduction and body it’s time to write the conclusion. Most bloggers are summarizing all the points in the conclusion, which can be boring. Instead, you can end with a thought-provoking question or call-to-action.
These rules aren’t inflexible. You can use them -or not- depending on what’s appropriate for your blog. The most important thing is to consistently write posts that are engaging, informative and unique to keep your readers coming back for more.
