3 Blog writing tips that you can use today to make your readers get to the punch line!
Content plays a huge role in this. It has to be quality, it has to provide answers to questions or make people smile and laugh. But, it is not all about content.
Have you ever sat there and rolled your eyes as someone tells what you know to be a really really funny joke, and they just get it all wrong (It’s usually women, and please don’t bombarded me with hate mail, it is simply my observation!). Anyway the point is you have to tell the joke correctly in order for people to understand the punch line. The key to learning how to write blogs is, producing content in a way which is going to keep the reader engaged until they get to the call to action.
There are 3 ways to do this.
1. Keep it short.
In my opinion some of the all time classic jokes are “Knock Knock” or “a man walked into a bar”. Why? Because they are short and to the point. That is what you should be aiming for.
Use short words, short sentences, short paragraphs, bulleted lists and short pages.
No company brochures, Slim it down.
2. Go from the B in Bang!
Think of the 3 second rule. You have to grab the reader by the balls and stop them from leaving.
The title is pivotal; if you get this wrong then people don’t even click to know more.
Decide what is the most important information to communicate and highlight it with headings, bold script and other visual aids.
Put the most important information at the beginning of headlines and paragraphs. Don’t treat it like a joke.
Place the most important words at the beginning of page titles, headlines, subheadings and links. The most important words are your keywords, which are the words and phrases that people will use to find your content via search engines.

3. Keep it Simple
I refrained from using “keep it simple stupid”. I have already insulted women; I don’t want to alienate everybody else!
Not everybody has a master’s degree in nuclear physics so don’t treat them like they do. Just because you know what a word or phrase means, don’t bank on the fact that everybody else does.
- One Message per post
- One or two ideas per short paragraph.

- Delete fluff. Make sure every word has a place on the page and adds to the goal or message you are trying to deliver. If not, delete it.
