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 If your blog post isn’t informing, inspiring, entertaining, or making someone’s life better in some way, do not publish it until it is.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. Opinions are often what sets your blog post apart from what everyone else is writing about, so share them.

Number 3. Cut out the fluff which is what I am trying to do in this podcast. Before you hit publish, revise your post and remove anything 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 scannable. 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 7. Write with passion. When you share that you care what you are writing about your readers will most likely care, too.


Number 9. Tell stories. Stories are incredibly powerful at connecting with your readers in inspiring and teaching them. They will also create memories in your readers.

Number 10. Give your posts visual appeal. The inclusion of a great image or a well-designed diagram can take your post to the next level and help it to be shared so much more.

And lastly practice. The best way to improve your writing. To write content that changes people’s life is to practice, practice, practice.
