How to Write Content That Grabs Your Reader’s Attention In Your Blog Post Writing.

Is Blog post writing hard for you?

Do you find that in your blog post writing that you fail to attract readers, comments and shares?

It can be very discouraging to produce content day in and day out if it does not get the attention it deserves.


When blog post writing your content, your goal should be to draw people to it like honey to bees.

Here are 7 cool ways to add some heat to your posts, and grab your readers’ attention:


The headline of your content serves as the door to your world. It should create curiosity and interest and make people want to read your content.

If your headline is not compelling and enticing enough, then you are going to lose your readers.

So, make your readers curious to find out more….

2.Opening Paragraph

Just imagine how disappointed you’d be after crafting a killer headline for your post, only to lose readers with an opening that failed to carry momentum.

The second most important part of your blog post after the title is the opening paragraph.

A great headline mixed with a lame opening is like inviting someone into your house, only to slam the door in their face as they approach. Can you imagine that?

So, open your blog posts with a bang  – tell your readers what they can expect, give them reasons to read your content, so they keep reading.

3. Formatting

The other thing is to break up your content with sub-headings, bullet points and so on.

Always use formatting  (bold, italic, underline etc.) to make reading easier.

4. Language

You need to make every sentence and word work for you.

Cut out unnecessary words and phrases.

Use everyday language.

Short, simple words can convey your points far more effectively than grandiose, convoluted ones.

Your subscribers will not be interested in referring to a dictionary every time they read your posts.

5. Internal Linking

You also need to link to your other relevant posts to help your readers visit more of your blog and also help Google find you other related posts and get them ranked as well so you can get more free traffic.

6. Images

Images make posts look colorful, attractive, interesting and even entertaining.

Always go for funny or cute pictures. People love them.

Here is a top tip: make your images link to your capture page, fan page, or another page or post.

Why?  Because people like clicking on images.

So you could direct them to your money pages or other authority posts.

7. Solve Your Readers’ Problems

Your readers are more interested in posts which solve their problems.

Study your niche and get to know your audience so you can know what their common worries and struggles are.

You can use these in your posts, by empathizing with how they feel and by sharing some solutions.


Blog Post Writing – The Common Trend

Here is the thing… beginner bloggers usually get excited about their brand new, stunning blogs with cool graphics and all that.

Some new bloggers get obsessed with the design and all the nice stuff, not realizing that is NOT what makes a blog successful.

Being excited with the idea of blogging,  they start writing a few posts consistently and them boom!  They run out of steam, hit the wall, and then get writer’s block.

Even those who have been blogging for a while, go through the same thing every now and then.

They abandon their blogs and make excuses for not coming up with fresh blog post writing ideas to share with their readers.

Fact is, a blog without content is dead, it will not attract regular visitors, subscribers and customers.

No one will take you seriously if you don’t provide content.

Blog Post Writing – What Do You Write About?

As I have already mentioned, a lot of bloggers are struggling with blog post writing as they fail to come up with ideas on a regular basis.

Without a doubt, writer’s block is one of the biggest challenges that many bloggers face today.


To Your Success,
