As a blogger, when you sit down to write a post, you have two primary objectives:
- Present the dilemma you’re going to solve and give a top-down view of the big picture.
- Flesh out the details and give specifics in form of answers to the dilemma and the big picture.
In most blog posts, these are the two main steps that need to be focused on. By way of your article’s title and introductory paragraph you need to set forth a foundation, by presenting a problem or a question and then laying it out so that your readers understand exactly the issue your post is going to address.

Many marketers start blogs for their company as a way to promote their products or services through another medium. However, as the recent Google updates and overall best practices for search engine optimization and content marketing go, it is best to focus on providing blog posts that are useful and cover industry news instead of trying to sell more products.
Throughout the years, internet users have become smarter and better about finding the information they need and are interested in. Because of this, they are not willing to waste their time looking at overly promotional copy that isn’t teaching them something new or catering to their interests. Because of this, it is time for bloggers to step up their game and start providing great content. Once a website begins to get recognized as a leader in their industry for providing great information through their blog posts, they will start getting more leads and traffic.

You’ve got Netflix movies stacked upon Blockbuster videos past due to return. And your blog is begging for a blog post.
The symptoms are all there.
You have backlogitis. [Read more…]
As mentioned in the last article in Nothing to Blog About, not every idea is worth publishing. Not every blog post is publishable. Not every blog post should see the light of the public eye. And sometimes that type of blog post is stopping us from producing blog content.
I can’t tell you the many hours I’ve spent struggling over a blog post, determined it had value and needed to be published. I’d beat at it, thrash it, rip and tear it apart, only to decide it wasn’t ready, nor was I, to have this ever be published.
Has this happened to you? A blog post you want to publish sits in your drafts or stares at you from your blog screen screaming, “NO! NOT YET!”
Are you listening? [Read more…]
If people judged me by the number of ideas I generated in single day on the subject of WordPress and blogging, I’d be the Einstein of the blogosphere. If they took a peek into the all the various files, folders, virtual and physical, I have to store all of those ideas, they’d pack me up and send me to the mental institution.
I come up with ideas for things to blog about constantly, rarely running out of ideas. The problem is that few of these see the light of day, or I get so caught up in the ideas, I can’t get past the idea to the Publish button.
As part of this series called Nothing to Blog About, we’re talking about how to stir up your mental pot when the bloggy brain bogs down and content cannot be found. From among the various options suggested already, I’d like to resurrect the traditional idea file. [Read more…]
