Class notes point 1

Before you get started with the actual blog post writing you want to set up your space first.

It's important to decide on the blogging tools you'll be using because a chaotic approach will
make blog writing frustrating and more time consuming than it needs to be. There are lots of
blog writing tools online you can freely use.

What does it mean?


The most daunting question. What should my first blog post be about?

Well, what your first blog post should or shouldn't be depends on the blog niche you're in and the
core of your blog.

One of the most common first blog posts is introducing yourself in the blog post.

How can it help you?


Some beginner bloggers put too much importance on the first blog post, while some oversee it all
together and post just anything. The truth is somewhere in the middle.

Your first blog post is important but it's not crucial.

It's your chance to introduce yourself to the world and make your audience stay around for your
next publishes.

Your first blog post should be qualitative and insightful.

Yet, you shouldn't be obsessing about it being perfect. Isn't aiming for perfection what holds us
from stepping forward sometimes? Yes, it is. And the same goes for blogging.
There are lots of people wishing to start a blog but they postpone it for too long because they are
afraid their blog posts won't be good enough.

The truth is, your first blog post won't be your best one. It won't be perfect.

The only thing you are supposed to do with your first blog post is to find a topic your audience is
interested in and do your best to write an insightful post about it. It doesn't need to be wowing.
You'll learn things down the way.

Main Takeaway
15 seconds…
That’s how long the average reader (55%) spends on a blog post before clicking elsewhere.

So how do you create content that converts ‘average readers’ into people who’ll happily spend
5,10, or 15 minutes on your blood, sweat, and tears?

Readers who will then share your post, subscribe to your blog, grow your audience, and make
you feel that all is right with the world!

One word!

Structure!

It’s a horrible word, isn’t it? It’s boring!

When I think of the word ‘structure’ I imagine a guy in a grey suit delivering a mind-numbingly
tedious PowerPoint presentation about ‘corporate overheads’ to a bunch of employees who feel a
bit like this.
If you look up how to write a great blog post, you’ll see mixed answers on what it should
contain. Some say that you should focus on SEO and others state that SEO doesn't matter if your
readability and content is there.

So which one is correct?

Actually, both! Today I want to teach you how to incorporate both SEO and Readability into
your posts. No matter where you’re at in your blogging skills, this article should be able to help
you produce more readable, SEO-oriented blog posts.

I'm going to give you tips on both, then I’ll teach you how to incorporate them into your writing.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there
live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a
large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the
necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into
your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost
unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum
decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so,
because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but
the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and
made herself on the way. When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last
view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village
and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek,
then she continued her way. On her way she met a copy. The copy warned the Little Blind Text,
that where it came from it would have been rewritten a thousand times and everything that was
left from its origin would be the word "and" and the Little Blind Text should turn around and
return to its own, safe country. But nothing the copy said could convince her and so it didn’t take
long until a few insidious Copy Writers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole
and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects again and again. And
if she hasn’t been rewritten, then they are still using her.Far far away, behind the word

The European languages are members of the same family. Their separate existence is a myth. For
science, music, sport, etc, Europe uses the same vocabulary. The languages only differ in their
grammar, their pronunciation and their most common words. Everyone realizes why a new
common language would be desirable: one could refuse to pay expensive translators. To achieve
this, it would be necessary to have uniform grammar, pronunciation and more common words. If
several languages coalesce, the grammar of the resulting language is more simple and regular
than that of the individual languages. The new common language will be more simple and
regular than the existing European languages. It will be as simple as Occidental; in fact, it will be
Occidental. To an English person, it will seem like simplified English, as a skeptical Cambridge
friend of mine told me what Occidental is.The European languages are members of the same
