WHAT IS WRITING A BLOG POST ALL ABOUT
Let’s look at it this way, by splitting it in two like;
- What a blog post all about?
- What is writing?
What a blog post is all about?
A blog post is a discussion or information published on a world wide web.
It contain content in form of;
What is writing
Writing involves the representation of a language with symbols.
It is a means of rendering language with symbols into human communication.
From this definition…,
You can see that writing a blog post is a medium of human communication in the word wide web.
But the question still stands.
WHY DOES WRITING A BLOG POST MATTERS?
It really matters a lot.
Take a look at this…,
Like in terms of;
1) Pulling Organic Traffic From Search Engines
Looking at search engine optimisation, you will come to see that…,
The more you frequently update your blog post, the chance you have of pulling organic traffic from search engines.
What that means is that…,
As you keep on writing your blog post regularly, there will be a chance that your post will appear on search engines.
But there is something I want you to know about which is…,
Longer article take time to create and that means…,
Longer articles take days to complete and publish.
But that doesn’t mean that it won’t pull organic traffic from search engines.
But Brain Dean from Backlinko has also proved that longer articles can pull organic traffic from search engines.
So this is why I said;
“Writing a blog post truly matters”.
2) Readers Keep Coming Back For More To Read
If you write a blog post that is conversational and actually interest readers…,
They will likely make comments.
They will save pages of your article or bookmark your article in their browser for future reading.
Apart from that;
Readers will share and sometimes subscribe to your blog.
As for me…
Most at times, I usually do that.
Especially if the article or blog post is too informative and conversational.
So why this matters is that;
It proves that you are more informed with the topic.
3) You Become Well Established As An Authority To Your Niche
Yes that is true.
Let me tell you how…
If you decide to write well detail content based on you audience request or understanding…,
It will prove to them that you have knowledge about what they truly want.

You have now established yourself as an authority in your niche.
Let’s discuss why we are here in this article in the first place.
8 STEP FOR HOW TO WRITE YOUR BLOG POST FAST WITHOUT BEING STRESSED
I will be discussing with you the 8 steps that you can use to write your blog post fast without being stressed.
But before I begin, let me list them out to you.
Why I decide to do that is…, so that you will be able to follow up and understand what I am discussing.
These are the 8 step that we will be discussing;
- Brainstorm ideas
- Decide on which blog post template you are going to use
- Make an outline
- Do research and gather materials
- Create and divide your outline in part and milestone
- Use Pomodoro and Stay Focus apps
- Begin with your write ups
- Do checklist, editing and proofreading
1; Brainstorm Ideas
Brainstorming ideas is not that difficult as some people do say.
Maybe they don’t have the ideas on how to brainstorm ideas.
Or it may be tha…,
They are taking it the wrong way.
As for me…,
I usually use three methods when I am brainstorming ideas.
Those methods are;
- Keyword Magic Tool (Affiliate Link)
- Google Suggestion Tool
- Keyword Shitter
Before you decide to brainstorm ideas, I recommend you use Keyword Tools.
The reason for that is to help you check the Keyword Overview.
Take a look this article…
There is a part in the article (Keyword Analysis) that talks about why use keyword tools.
Using keyword tools when brainstorming ideas help you to know about;
- Search Volume: These aspects show you the particular keyword that has numbers of search volume during the month. With that you can prepare your content marketing strategy.
- SEO Difficulty: This shows you how competitive a keyword is estimated in search engines. The higher a keyword appears, the more competitive it is.
- Paid Difficulty: This part shows you how competitive a keyword rank in paid search.
- Cost Per Click: When a keyword has value in SEO, that means someone has Made a higher bid for that keyword to appear as ads in SEO.
Knowing this, you can decide what keyword you need to use in your content.
Pick a keyword and view it with keyword tools.
The keyword for this article is ;
“How to write a blog post“.
I use Semrush (Affiliate Link) to get the overview of that keyword.
Doing that help me to view details for that keyword like;
- Keyword Difficulty
- Cost per click
- Global search
I use Google Suggestion Tool to view the keyword in alphabetical categories.
Google Suggestion Tool
Google Suggestion Tool gives you searcher’s intent.
It displays keywords that human input in search engines bin others to find or see information.
It can display keywords in alphabetic order.
But the problem with Google Suggestion Tool is that…,
It doesn’t display more options for that keyword you intend to use.
So this is where I bring in keyword shitter.
Keyword shitter is one of my favourite tools.
Though there are other tools that can display more options for a certain keyword you intend to use.
Do you know why I decided to call in Keyword Shitter?
Why do I call it my favourite tool?
Here is the reason…,
It deeply narrows down keywords.
Though Google Keyword Tool and other premium keyword tools can do that, but unlike keyword shitter…,
It shut out keywords from a parent keyword.
Type the word…,
How to write a blog post in keyword shitter and click the button in order to suit out the keyword.
You will be surprised by what you will see.

2; Decide On Which Blog Post Template To Use
Having a blog template helps a lot.
Do you know why?
Let me explain…,
I want you to imagine this…,
You are told to prepare a meal that is not known to you with all the ingredients to be used in the recipe.
You are also given a recipe guide for the meal that will guide you to guide you on how to prepare the meal.
Do you think that, because the meal is unfamiliar to you, you won’t be able to cook it the way it’s supposed to be?
Even though you are with the recipe guide?
With the recipe guide, you can succeed in preparing the meal.
Blog post templates are similar to that.
It’s like having a content framework that guides you on how you want content to look like.
If you can’t or don’t know how to create your own Content Framework or Blog Post Template..,
I have a blog post template that I have been using which I want you to have at;
Sometimes, picking a template is all about;
- How you want the content to look like
- Your content title
- You audience needs
3; Create An Outline
I don’t know if you are familiar with the wordâ€¦, “Table Of Content“?
If you have read some blog post, you will discover something in the post…,
Table of contents.
If you have read a book, you will see the Content Table or Table Of Content.
You will see that…,
All the chapters, content and pages, all rhymes according to the table of contents.
That is how an outline looks.
When making an outline, is like…,
Making a list for shopping.
People make shopping lists so that they will not shop what is outside or not on the list.
Making an outline will guide you to stay focus when writing your content
You won’t be able to lose focus or divert your content to things that aren’t important or irrelevant to your content.
You can also watch the video below;

Writing A Topic Outline
Below is the outline I use for this article.
4) Do Research And Gather Materials
By the way…
What is research?
Here is what I found from a booklet…
“It is a careful search for information about a particular matter”. __Benefit From Theocratic Ministry School Education By JW
What that mean is that…
It requires the application of the principles of study.
Which can include;
- Interviewing people
Apart from that…
You can enrich your materials with;
- Quote and citation
Doing all this, is a way of making your research fit materials.
Not only that…
It can touch the lives of your audience or readers.
Do you know why?
The article you want to write to your audience may seem obvious.
But due to research and gathering of materials, it becomes more informative and motivating.
5) Create And Divide Your Outline In Parts And Milestones
How will you do this?
Let’s start by looking what milestones is all about…
Brett Harned from his article…,
How To Use Milestones In Project Management, defined milestones as…,
“A milestone is a marker in a project that signifies a change in stage in development”.
What he meant is that…
A milestone acts like a signal post through the course of your project, helping to ensure that you stay on track.
Another definition about milestones I found is from Wrike.
This article, What Is Milestone In Project Management?
It define it as…
“A milestone is a specific point within a project life cycle to measure the progress toward the ultimate goal”.
What that mean is…,
Milestones is a signal post for a project start to end date.
The reason why I bring this up, is to let you know…,
How to write content without being burnout or stressed by dividing your outline in parts and creating milestones.
If you expand the screenshot below, you will sample how to divide the outline of this article.
When you divide your outline in parts…
It helps you to write your article in an easy way.
So to do that…
Make milestones by dividing your outline and setting a start to end date of when you will complete your milestones.
You will discover that you are able to complete your blog post fast without being stressed.
As for me…
What I do is to create as many milestones I want.
Here is example of milestone;
Milestones 1 (Monday -Tuesday)
- Keyword research
- Gathering of materials
- Create an outline
Milestones 2 (Wednesday – Thursday)
- Decide on which content type or content creation template to use
- Write introduction for the content
- Write part of the content body
Milestone 3 (Friday – Saturday)
- Write the other part of the content body
- Write conclusion
- Insert multi media (images, screenshot, infographic and videos)
Milestone 4 (Sunday)
- Proofreading And Editing
- Do checklist
- Publish the content
That is an example of how milestones look like.
But you can make yours in order to suit you.
6) Pomodoro Timer And Stay Focus App
If you want to stay focused and avoid distraction, I highly recommend these two apps.
They help a lot.
Pomodoro Timer is an app that helps you to stay focused when writing and doing other activities.
All you need to do is create a project and set up the timer.
Like the screenshot above is the setup I personalised for all my projects.
- Pomodoro Length; Is 25 minute. It let me write my article for 25 minute.
- Shirt Break Length; After the 25 minute, the app will notify me to take a short break for 5 minute.
- Long Break After; This part is set to 4 Pomodoro Length. Which is 25 x 4 = 100. That means, I will be working for 1hr, 40min.
- Long Break Length; At the end of each Long Break After or Pomodoros, the app will notify me to take a Long Break Length of 15 minute.
The app helps you to stay focused when writing content of any length like 1500+ words and above.
It can be used for freelance writing service.
Especially when changing your client based on hourly rate.
Bamidele Onibalusi, a freelance writer and founder of Writers In Charge Blog talks about his experience with Pomodoro Timer.
He was able to write 5000+ words in less than a week with the help of the app (Pomodoro Timer).
You can download this app from Google Play Store.
Stay Focused App
This is another that can help you stay focused.
Unlike the Pomodoro Timer App, this one is different.
It helps you avoid distraction.
Take A Break: This part helps you to take a break from your phone by setting the time period.
Though at this point…
You can to select the application you want to access when Take A Break is blocking you.
Modes: the modes are divided into three sections;
- Normal Mode
- Lock Mode
- Strict Mode
With these two apps…
You will be able to write a blog post without being stressed.
7) Begin With Your Write Ups
At this point…
This is where you will do your writing.
Usually a blog post , article or content do have three part;
- Call to action
Get people attention and tell them what information they are going to get if they keep reading.
Deliver on the promise you made from your introduction
Summarize and bring everything back to your main point.
Call to action
Tell people what they need to do next.
8) Do Editing And Proofreading
I highly recommend…
Don’t edit and proofread your content during writing.
Do you know why?
Writing first and editing later, do you what it does to a writer?
It will help a writer to have the motive to keep writing.
When a writer is faced with a blank page.
But there is a way…,
You can edit your writing without having to become an editor.
You can use this online tools…
Or, you can download this EBook…
