I have multiple sites in which I blog. Fortunately for my Medium readers almost all of my articles go through Medium.
However I use the word press site to create all of my recipes do it yourself tips and gardening tips. At this moment there is no advertising on that site but eventually I will have Google AdSense there. If you would like you can check that out later the link will be at the bottom of this article.
Now let’s get to business.
To make this article useful to know matter what website you use we are going to start with just a simple layout and what’s in each section of a blog on a single recipe article.
Title And Lead Image
I use a GIF image that I create with Apps on the main picture.
It goes without saying a good title is essential.
Since in this particular article the images and a quote were available. I used a Quote to “Pop” you can use anything even serving size or healthy tip.
Second Header or Recipe Title and Enticement text.
Printable Recipe, if available
Tips or if Adding additional recipes Title…
And I Always add photos or videos
As you can see it’s very simple.
Here is a great guide to help you blog PDF
Another good Reference:
Nail that title and opening paragraph. Compelling titles and introductions make your readers want to read your post right away. The mistake many bloggers make is writing headlines the way they speak. While that’s okay when you write the post (to a certain extent), when you write headlines that way it waters them down. You want your headlines to be as ruthlessly concise and powerful as possible. So chop out weak words and throw in power words (if appropriate).
Address a specific audience. Good blog posts are targeted to a particular audience. So, before you start developing content, decide who you are selling to and what you are selling.
Optimize your content for search. A great blog post follows basic search engine optimization (SEO) rules: the use of keyword optimized titles, a good keyword ratio, keyword anchor text, and the use of your targeted keywords in the first and last sentence. Mastering SEO best practices will make your content more relevant to targeted search engine users.
Pick a Mouth-Watering Topic. Want your blog post to get opened? Then your headline must promise readers the very answer to whatever is tormenting them. The thing that keeps them up at night.
Be useful and informative. You want to educate your reader. If your posts are useful and informative, you will receive a steady stream of repeat traffic. As you develop content, ask yourself “do I find this useful or informative? Will the reader find this useful or informative?” These two questions should always serve as your guide.
Crafting a Headline. Do you want to know one of the biggest mistakes bloggers make? Writing the post before the headline. Without a headline, they have no roadmap to follow. And so their post goes in multiple directions, leaving readers feeling dizzy, confused and disoriented.
