How To Write High-Quality Blog Posts No Matter What Niche You're In


write high quality blog posts in any niche




Think of high-quality content as the founding pillars of your blog. The higher the quality of this pillar the more solid your foundation becomes.


With a solid foundation backing your blog, you can grow your blog to be profitable really fast! (Not an overnight fast but, fast enough)


How will high-quality blog posts help my blog?


I don't think there's a single blogger out there that doesn't want to write high-quality content that both the search engines and readers love. 

The reason you can even make money out of blogging is that you have "readers" or "traffic" on your blog. 

Writing amazing content that your readers love serves you and your blogging business well. These high-quality blog posts keep attracting readers to your blog over and over again for years. And that's why your safest bet is to create content that your readers can't live without!

Your Blog Post Should Be Relevant To Your Readers


It's very important that every single time you sit down to write (in this case type) a blog post, you have a specific reader in mind. 

Without that, your blog post could turn out to be all over the place. When you write, think about the person reading your blog post, think about what he or she wants to know, why they want to know it and what will be the best way to give them that information. 

For example, while writing this post I have you in mind, you are a person that already has a blog, or has started a new blog, and you want to be able to write posts that your readers will love, the search engines will love. And a blog post that will become a solid traffic-driver for your blog in the long run.

I also think that you want to make your blog profitable, and so you want to write all your blog posts in a manner that strikes with your audience. You want most of your blog posts if not all to be of great value to your readers.

Deciding on all these things helps me write a blog post in which I can teach you all I know about writing high-quality blog posts.




Your Blog Post Should Not lack in Giving Crucial Information on Your Topic



Say, if I have a blog about making healthy ice creams at home, I can not get by without telling people the recipe of the healthy ice creams I make at home. 


Similarly, I also can't tell them the recipe without telling the exact measurements of the ingredients. 


If your post is lacking in giving proper information to your reader, they will want to look up to other sites as well. That is where you lose a reader and as a blogger, you don't want that. 

If you've chosen to write on a particular topic, you should have a structure laid out so that you don't miss any important points to add in your blog post. 

The practice that will make sure you never miss any important points in your blog posts is a one I often use myself:

I make rough drafts, in my blog planner. These drafts are often hand written as I enjoy writing itself. 
They also help me plan key points that I must add in my blog posts. 

This one habit will help you out so much when you're writing a blog post. You don't necessarily have to write them on paper like me, if you're more comfortable using your laptop then write it down there. 



Your Blog Post Should Solve a Problem or Answer a Query


A lot of people use search engines to help them find answers to their questions or help them solve a problem they are facing. 


Giving your readers a solution to their problem through your blog posts will help them identify you as an authority on that subject. They will come to you seeking your help, every time they have a problem.


These kinds of posts that have a 'problem-solving' nature are loved by readers because they help your readers in solving their problems. They're also often loved by search engines.

Your Blog Posts Should Be Detailed; Appropriately.


Did I tell you, Google loves detailed, explanation filled content? Well, you know now. So keep that in mind when you're writing your blog posts.


If you're writing a post that teaches someone about something, you can't afford to miss on the details.

You should try to give your readers the best and the most detailed information possible.

If you're wondering why, the answer is simple — there are so many blogs out there that have written what you are writing about a thousand times before.

Why should your blog post be chosen over any other? The answer should be because you wrote the most detailed piece on that topic, ever.


Writing a detailed blog post means that there's not a single piece of information for which a reader will have to look up to Google for that topic again after they've landed on your blog or website; that is what you should aim for every single time you write a blog post.


Please don't get me wrong, by writing detailed posts I DO NOT mean writing lengthy posts, some posts become lengthy (have a lot of words) because they are detailed.

But even a fashion blog post can be detailed without being 3500 words or more. It doesn't always matter how many words you write, what matters is that the information is complete and makes enough sense to your reader.



Your Blog Post Should Be Entertaining 


Unless you run "iwillboreyou.com" your blog post should be entertaining to your readers. 

That domain name is available *wink wink*

Let me give you an example of an incredibly entertaining blog post I read in 2012, that is when the iPhone 5 came out. Wait, what does iPhone have to do with high-quality blog posts?

You'll find out...

I've never used a case for my iPhone 4. Not even after the back broke for the third time. I didn't do it because, unlike my grandma, I don't cover my sofas with plastic. Or unlike idiots, I don't protect my car's front with a bra.
And while you and the other billion people who bought iPhone 4 cases had the totally legitimate excuse of the fragile glass back—arguably the stupidest pretty thing Apple ever did—and the questionable antenna—the second stupidest—you just don't need a f*cking case for your iPhone 5. Really, you don't.
The fact is that there's no fragility excuse anymore because the iPhone 5 is made of aluminum casted by Asgardian dwarf blacksmiths and put together with magicomicronometric precision by virgin she-dragons made of living gold. It can't break, unless you shoot it with a silver bullet at the witching hour under a full moon." 

These were the opening paragraphs of  You don't need a f*cking case for your iPhone 5 written by Jesus Diaz for Gizmodo

This was back in 2012 when I never used to read any tech-ish or gadget-sy blogs. And while I didn't even have an iPhone back then this blog post was extremely entertaining!


There was humour, and it was spot-on.  I've always remembered this blog post, even when I got me an iPhone, and you know what, I'm still convinced that my iPhone does not need a case — ever.

This is the impact you want to leave in your reader's mind as well, make them want to remember you because you wrote it all so well, and in a manner that it didn't bore your reader at all.



Your Posts Should Be Visually Appealing


Here's another thing you need to have in your blog posts! Visuals.

Our brain processes images 60,000 times faster than text, and that's why it's easier to understand infographics than just paragraphs and paragraphs of text.


Written text is and remains important for bloggers, but that shouldn't be an excuse to concentrate only on the text. Your blog needs visuals, and so do your blog posts.


Visuals help people associate with what you're writing, they help them see something different now and then between paragraphs in your posts, they are a great call-to-action and beautiful images lift people's moods. You see men and women both; are visual creatures.

So make sure you leverage visuals and graphics in your posts.

Make Your Blog Posts Easily Readable


Nobody will read your posts, or like to read them if your posts aren't easy to read and simple to understand.

How to make sure your posts are optimised for readability?


  • Keep your language simple
  • Avoid using words that make people feel their English isn't good enough or what you've written is hard for them to comprehend (understand).
  • Use Headings, Sub-Heading, and minor headings to make your content easily scannable.
  • Keep your paragraphs short.
  • Use proper spacing between lines.
  • Your font should be easily readable.

Alternatively, you can use Readability Score for measuring the readability of your content and improving upon it.



Write Catchy Headlines


Headline or your post's title is like a first impression, and you need to get it right.

Most of the time people will judge a book by its cover.  And that's why your post's headline is so important.

These words are like your first impression, and you know what they say about first impressions, don't you?

You want to write headlines in a way that they spark your reader's curiosity, and makes them think "what's this about?". This way, they'll click on your headlines and read what you have to say.


why are headlines important for high quality blog posts
John Jantsch in his article at Duct Tape Marketing


Some headlines that people usually like, have the following components:


  • How-To [Anything]
  • "N*" ways to do [anything] (a numbered headline)
  • Tips, Tricks, and Hacks
  • [Anything] on a budget
  • Headlines with real data (for example, 81% bloggers never make more than $100 here's how not be one of them) 

A good practice is to brainstorm at least five headlines when you start writing and then choose from them. I've noticed that I always end up changing the original headline I came up with once my post is ready to be published. 

You don't need to be Tim Ferris to write hit headlines (he too wrote several titles for his book, which then became a mega hit), for now, all you have to do is try to write headlines that you think you are likely to click on as a reader.

Take note on the headlines you usually click on when you're reading news online, other blogs, and on social media and gradually you'll start to get the hang of it yourself.



Write Original and Error-Free Content


Google hates plagiarism, and your readers won't like it either, so it's best if you don't get into that. If you're really serious about blogging then make sure your content isn't just cut, copy and paste from lots of other websites (which can also get you sued by the way).

If English is not your native language, write a blog in your language or use free programmes like Grammarly to help you reduce errors in your content.

I've written about the importance of writing error-free content before, and it's crucial for your blog posts to be considered high-quality. 

Think about it, if your reader can't make proper sense of what you've written will they ever think that your advice or the content that you write is good enough? No.


For checking Guest Posts submitted to your blog for plagiarism


In case you want to check posts others have submitted to you like guest posts, you can use Grammarly if you have their paid plan. Honestly, I think it is worth every penny as it helps you catch those mistakes you usually overlook. And with Grammarly I don't have to double-check my posts because grammarly does that for me on its own.



Conclusion

I wrote this post with one thing in my mind, helping you (the reader) to be able to write quality content on your blog day after day. 

Some more tips that I would like to mention are that when you write your posts, write them in a conversational tone, as if you're talking to someone one on one, it helps the reader connect with you and the advice you're giving them in a better way. 

Some posts require to be well-researched, and filled with data to back up your claims, so make sure that you add appropriate sources wherever necessary.

Another useful tip is to add call-to-actions in your blog posts, if you're writing about health, encouraging your readers to be healthy in your finishing lines is a great call-to-action and reminds them to take healthy choices every day!

You can even use interactive elements such as polls, quizzes, etc. to make your posts even more engaging for your readers. 


If you follow all these tips I've mentioned in this post, you'll always be able to write quality posts that your readers will love, and they'll come back for more!

  1. Those are really great tips. I believe in high quality content and I try my best to deliver that with every post I publish. Now that I know that we as bloggers don't have to write our blog post like a school report, I try to add a bit more humor to my posts right as a way to put my readers at ease and let them experience 'me' so to speak.

    1. I know! I feel that writing your posts in a way that you talk, is much better because people can really relate to it. Humor, keeping your posts interesting, and engaging are a must as well and I completely agree with you on that.
