What makes a blog post unforgettable?
Is it the amount of content it covers? Is it the topic in discussion? What matters (and sets other bloggers apart) is the ability to create an emotional connection between your reader and your blog. This article will explore how and why some blog posts are forgettable and why others leave a lasting impression.
Write With Passion
Turn your passion into remarkable content by sharing every detail about your topic. Don’t withhold information and write using your own voice. Information is easy to come by but it’s impossible to copy someone’s passion. Write your blog posts as if you were writing your manifesto; write with intensity and passion. Make it your mission to stun your readers with content; it’s the best way to create posts which become unforgettable within your community (and the web).
Create a Great Post; Then Make it Better
Always ask yourself what you can do to make your post that little bit better. Sometimes it can be as little as adding in a video or a great picture that transforms your blog post from average to outstanding. It’s worth spending that extra hour adding more information into your post. Make your resource the definitive guide to whatever you are writing about.
Keep Your Readers in Mind
Every blog has a specific target audience; your intention may be to only appeal to a small niche or a particular group of readers within a community. Writing about topics that your community doesn’t care about will only make your posts forgettable. To create something that has lasting effect, hit your readers with something they won’t expect – a post that answers all their questions or meets all their needs.
It can take time to fully understand what your readers want in terms of content but once you’ve tapped into what they’re looking for, it’ll make it easier to drive your message home and thus create something unforgettable.
Don’t Be Afraid to Hit Publish
There will be times when you feel that your post may not live up to expectations or have a negative effect on your blogging community – don’t be afraid! Sure, you may alienate a few of your readers by writing a post that goes against the grain, but you may also gain additional readers who agree with your opinions.
Share Personal Information
Give your readers a glimpse into your life by sharing something personal. Sometimes the most unforgettable posts are the ones that create a bond between you and your readers. Share something that lets people know that you’re human and want to connect.
Creating an unforgettable blog post can be challenging because there’s already so much information out there that it’s hard to find a voice through all the noise; but it is possible. The items covered in this article aren’t for those that want to simply ‘get by’ with their blog; they’re meant for those that want to make a real impact with their online work.
