How to Write a Blog 2022

Writing a blog can be difficult, especially for beginners. But by using the 3 part essay rules most of us learned in school it really does not need to be hard. In this post, I will cover how to write a blog that people can read and enjoy without requiring a tremendous amount of talent or skill from the writer.

What is the 3 part essay format?

Keep in mind an essay is written to convince or inform before you start writing, but the basic components of a 3 part essay are as follows.

Part 1 – Introduction and Make a Statement. (1 paragraph)

Part 2 – Back up the statement with examples. (3 or more paragraphs)

Part 3 – Summarize the statement and draw a conclusion. (1 paragraph)

Where to Begin?

The best place to start is by deciding what subject you want to write about. Make sure people want to read about that subject. This is quite easy if you have a computer with a Google Chrome browser. Simply add a free extension called keyword surfer and enter a phrase you think would be interesting. Instantly keyword surfer will tell you how many people search your subject matter every month and select that subject.

How important is your title?

The title is also known as your headline is extremely important as it is the first thing people will see before they decide to read your blog. It is also important to have your keyword in your title along with a number and a power word. For instance, you will notice I titled this blog HOW TO (Power word) and used the number 2022 in my title and my keyword is how to write a blog. That keyword has over 8000 search queries every month. So make sure your title gets attention and people care about the subject matter.

So now I have a title, tell me how to write a blog

So now with a good title in place, you will write your first paragraph. You may recall your teachers told you your first paragraph is the introduction and it makes a statement. Basically give the reader some background on the subject, make your statement and tell them what you are going to tell them. You will notice my first paragraph gives a little background and then makes a statement that “writing a blog does not need to be hard”. And I included my keyword, “how to write a blog” and finally I told the reader what I am going to tell them.

What next?

Now that you have made your statement you need to back up your statement with examples. For instance, if your statement is that writing a blog does not need to be hard, you will need examples as to why. You should have 3 or more examples and you will notice in this blog I already have 4 examples. And I can go on and on all day. That is why the three-part essay format works so well. I can recall tests in college where I had no idea of an answer, but because I used a solid 3 part essay writing strategy I often received partial credit and essay questions.

How do I get many examples to back up my statement?

When you make any statement, your examples can go on and on. Most blogs should be 500 words or more, so you may need to create content even when you feel like you have run out of things to say. This entire paragraph is a clear example of that. But it does create the needed content to get this blog to the required 500-word format that most search engines attach relevancy to without getting redundant.

How do I finish up my blog?

The conclusion of your blog is the easy part. Summarize the statement and draw a conclusion. So you can see that writing a blog does not need to be difficult. With a little practice, you can write a good-quality blog that people will want to read without too much effort. Just follow these steps and you should be producing good blogs reasonably fast.
