1K Blog Marathon: Day 21
I won’t add an intro.
1. Poor Title, Poor Header, Poor Outline
Okay. The first 5 seconds your reader look at your blog, he then exits the page. Who wants to read about “How to enlarge your public interest in the copyrighting industry using these 3 $imple hacks that will make you $40,000 in just one week”?
It’s very long.
It’s very wrong.
It sounds spammy, click-bait-y, and junky.
Then you will go on the article without any introduction? Or you will go on the article with a 2-page introduction? Yeah, you just written your dissertation paper!
Is that your own outline or the template you downloaded? Hmmm…
2. Jumping thoughts, scattered emotions
When creating a blog, you should not jump into ideas after ideas. The SEO community is way much larger than the mobile phone industry. And if your write your dissertation paper, you should start it with a bang! This is a blog, and not a dictionary – you should never jump into ideas without correlation.
3. What the Font? And do I need a reading glass for that?
Be mindful of the font face you will use – it can make or break your branding or website. You can start learning about legible fonts, decide if you will use serif or sans serif, modern, italics, black – just tweak it until your eyes won’t hurt.
4. Nonsense bragging.
This is how I made myself a Millionaire in just 3 days. Yeah, you’re a member of the Lucky Sperm Club, but who cares about your Lamborghini? People want inspiration and motivation, not a childish rich guy bragging about his new flat, which is not really flat at all. Instead of doing that, why not tell your “secret sauce” so that many of our beloved readers will replicate you “best system”.
5. Wrong information based from wrong data coming from wrong source (source: the-reliable-media.xyz)
“Think before you click.” Before sharing in your blog space the article you’ve read an hour ago, take another 1 hour to research if its fact or bluff. If you share or talk about that and readers search for that themselves, you’re screwed!
6. Do you need that image?
I saw a blog about real estate and the featured image is his dog. What?
7. Wait, can you list it for me?
If you are blogging about a certain topic which expands to more than 5 sub topics, you can use lists or numbering, it won’t hurt your article.
- It can help your readers follow the points you are making;
- It can help you review the points you are making;
- It will tell Google Crawlers that “your blog is well written and relevant”.
8. Spelling please!
I’m guilty of it, sometimes when I’m rushing my blog post just to meet my 24-hour deadline. But yu shoudl not do it constuntly, for it can make your blog lookl like a jokes. And also look out for grammaers, better to have one or twu funmily members ore friend to proofread it for you.
9. Words please!
The world is full of #$!@^&&&*, so you shouldn’t be one. Yeah, cursing can make you cool, it can make your point dig deeper to the heart and souls of the listener, but it’s wrong. A reader would love to read good blogs. If not, they would just be browsing porn sites. And you’re not making a point just by saying as3#$%^ or &!@#% – you can rant, but don’t curse.
10. Tissue please!
Wait, are you still there? I thought I heard you snoring, are you sleeping? I’m not done yet? Is my blog boring that you slipped through your chair and go into deep slumber?
It’s a humor blog, but I hope it makes sense folks. Let’s meet again tomorrow for another blog! Thank you for dropping by!
