Number 1. Be useful.
If your blog post isn’t informing, inspiring, entertaining, or making someone’s life better in some way, do not publish it until it is.
Number 2. Share your opinion.
Your opinions are what sets your blog post apart from what everyone else is writing about, so share them.
Number 3. Cut out the fluff.
Before you hit publish, edit your post and remove everything that does not add value.
Number 4. Visualize your reader as you are writing.
Writing with a reader in mind personalizes your writing in ways that you cannot even imagine.
Number 5. Make your posts snack-able.
Only 16% of people read every word that you write. Format your post in a way where your main points stand out using bullet posts or headlines.
Number 6. Work and rework your headlines.
A good headline can be the difference between a blog being read or ignored completely.

Ask your readers to do something once they are finished reading. It could be reading something else, commenting, sharing, or applying the lesson that you have taught.

Stories are incredibly powerful at connecting with your readers in inspiring and teaching them. They will also create memories in your readers.
