It can be a little tricky when you write your first blog post. Writing a blog post, living the independent life. Welcome to your first blog post!
You desire a life where no one will have the right to tell you what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. That’s what I’m talking about1
Blogging can afford us those freedoms and, in fact, luxuries too.
However, in order to be successful, you will need to make sure that what we’re doing is done correctly.
How To Write First Blog Post
Obviously, the first thing you need to do is to set up you blog. But, once you’re done with that, you will need to start writing posts. That’s what this blog is all about, helping you to successfully create your future by creating a great initial blog. Your first blog post will serve as the key basis of your blogging business. It’s scary, but if you get it wrong, you’re probably doomed to fail. But if you get it right, you’ll lay the proper foundation for success. No need to take a chance, just read on.
So, don’t think that it has to be mind-blowing. It doesn’t. But, if you want your initial set of visitors to come back to your blog after reading your first article, it needs to be interesting.
Actually, you want to charm them so much that they can’t help but tell their friends about this excellent blog they’ve just discovered, yours.
The majority of individuals are just so excited that they don’t worry too much about this initially. After installing WordPress, all most bloggers want to do is to publish anything just to let the world know that they’re online.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite work out so easily.
Honestly, the vicious truth is that if you fail to capture your first visitors’ interest at a deep level with your first article, you will lose them forever.
If you are a blogger who is just starting out, here are some things you should mention in your first post.
Writing Your First Blog – Who You Are
You’ve just bounded head first into the online world, and not a sole knows anything about you. If I am supposed to trust you and keep coming back to your blog, then I will first need to know who you are.
People seriously want to connect with you on a profound level. Let them know:
- About your experiences in life
- That this is your first blog
- Who you are as a person, a professional, and a blogger
The more you tell them about yourself, the more readers will respond to you, and the more they will trust you and want to hear what you have to say.
In addition, be sure to post pictures. Don’t just be “the unknown person behind the keyboard”. Once the readers can relate to you, they will also start to trust you. And you will need to create that trust with pictures as well as words.
Tell Them Why You Are Blogging
This is very important. If you don’t give people a reason why you’re doing what you’re doing, they’ll have no motivation to trust you.
A specific thing to do when answering this question is to keep your audience in mind.
- Why would someone visit my blog?
- What specifically would they be looking for?
- What is in it for my readers?
Tell your audience why you’re there. They’ll appreciate it. And they’ll want to connect with you.
Tell Them What You Are Going To Be Blogging About
Once you’ve answered the “why you are blogging”, this one is now easier.
Tell your audience exactly what they should be expecting to see on your blog.
It is also a great idea to let them know how often you’ll be updating your blog and what days and times they can expect it.
To be successful, you do not want to create yet another generic blog where you will be writing about anything and everything. Be sure that your blog is focused on one particular subject. This will increase your authority level and permit for your audience to see you as an expert in your field.
Tell Them Who You Are Writing For
In your initial post, make sure you talk about your target audience.
- Who are the people you will be writing for?
- What are they like (ambitious, lazy, very busy, etc.)?
What you strive to do is relate to your readers so that they will feel welcomed and trust that you understand their problems.
Post an emotional story which brought you to where you are today, and let your target audience know that you’re there for them and you understand.
Tell Them How They Can Get Involved
You need to let your readers know how they can get involved. For instance:
- Do you encourage reader comments? If so, say it.
- Do you encourage guest posting??
- Let your readers know how they can email you if they have questions, suggestions, or complaints.
It is best to let them know they can reach out to you if they need to. Also, never be afraid to encourage disagreements.
The fact of the matter is that some of your readers will disagree at times, and if they can’t share those disagreements with you, they won’t trust you.
If you prefer being contacted at a particular time of the day/week, let them know that also.
State Your Blogging Goals
You should share the goals of your blog with your readers in your initial post.
- What are you actually looking to achieve with your blog?
- What will you want the blog to be like in 3-6 months?
When you share your goals with your readers, they will want to help you achieve those goals.
If your initial blog post contains all the above elements, then you are going to be off to a good start.
Make sure your readers know that you are an open, honest, and passionate blogger.
Make them understand you’re not here to sell them anything.
Instead, tell them that you’re here to help.
