How To Create High Quality And Long Articles
Although it is a pretty good step to start writing long posts for your blog, yet it doesn’t end there. There are many long posts that don’t add value. Your best bet is improving both the quantity and quality of your articles.
If you have ever wondered how to create high-quality long posts, then follow the steps below:
1. Blog For Passion:
Action needs passion or it would be sanctioned. It is your dream that gives you the ultimate drive. You don’t need a big head to move ahead…
Creating long and unique articles take time and requires sacrifice on your part. Only those blogging for passion can see reasons to spend time creating unique articles.
Bloggers who see blogging as a get-rich-quick scheme will always find it difficult to add value. Blog to add value to lives and you will be amazed about how many more words you are able to produce.
2. Write On Topics You Are Familiar With:
Nothing reduces struggle like creating contents you are familiar with. The best way to start creating high quality content on your blog is to focus on topics that are already part of you.
Don’t say, Brother “A” & Sister “D” blog on Health and it pays, therefore, I want to focus on health too.
Just focus on what creates the desired result of your life. Blogging is not to compete but to complete. You are your own competition.
3: Break Your Topics Down:
Try as much as possible to touch everything about your topic. You shouldn’t write about ‘human being’ without discussing the characteristics of living things, why humans are different from plants and other animals.
You could also make your article longer by listing the types, advantages, disadvantages and features of the topic you are blogging about. SAY NO to half baked articles.
4. Plan Your Write-Ups:
Don’t just boot your computer and start writing. First, think about what to write and then how to write it. Nothing produces a planned write-up like writing a planned article.
Nothing produces a planned write-up like writing a planned article.
One more helpful thing is to put a joter close while creating content. Write down every new idea you get regarding the topic.
Remember, it is what you have in your head that takes you ahead.
5. Reference Your Article:
Another way to make your blog posts longer is to add the idea of other bloggers. After exhausting your idea, you could also let readers know what other persons have said about the topic.
You could add something like, “According to Neil Patel, you would be sad to know how much you are leaving on the table”. This quote alone has added few words to your article.
Now that you know how to make your articles longer, let’s quickly touch how to make your long articles more interesting…..
How To Write Interesting Articles On Your Blog
1. Discover The Best Writing Method For You:
Writing pattern differs… Every blogger has unique way of creating content. Discover the writing method that best works for you.
Don’t copy how others write; fake is very expensive to maintain. Discover the gold in you and begin to manifest the beautiful content creating skill in you.
2. Make Your Paragraphs Shorter:
The shorter your paragraphs, the more people are able to understand your message. Try to make your paragraphs as short as possible.
Now, you may be wondering, how short should my paragraphs be? You could decide to have paragraphs with minimum of two lines and maximum of six lines (Desktop View).
3. Proof-Read Your Write-Ups:
Errors make powerful posts boring. Although it is very difficult to create a perfect content, you could try your best to minimize grammatical and factual errors in your content.
The fewer the errors, the more interesting your posts would be.
4. Don’t Be Too Official:
Don’t be too official or stiff in your writings. After all, you are not under pressure to write. Sometimes, add juice, funny lines, quotes and rhymes to your articles. These are features of interesting articles.
5. Speak Directly To Your Readers:
There is high probability that only one person would be reading your article at a time (and not group reading). Therefore, use words like “you“, “me“, “yourself“, etc to make the reader conscious of the fact that you are speaking to him or her directly and not just telling stories.
