Making up your mind to be a blogger is not very tough.
However, once your blog is registered and it’s time to feed some content into it, you face a block. What should you write about?
Considering that it is the first post you upload, you need to be very careful about what you write because your first post sets the tone of the entire blog.
Decide what you want to convey
The first post that you post to your blog should convey the specific intention of the blog.
Write about what you wish to use your blog space for. Detail the topics you would want to touch upon.
Write about the expectation that you have from the blog. Also, allot a part of your first blog to outline how your articles can be helpful to your target audience. This is to ensure that your target audience comes back for more.
Identify what your target audience wants
You probably already have a clear idea about the interests of your target audience.
If you don’t, conduct a brief market research and analyse what they are looking for. Social media is a good place to start your research.
You can start writing once you are sure about the interests of your target audience.
You might not be the best writer in the world, but your uniqueness is your USP.
Write the first blog in your personal style while keeping your target audience in mind. Since it is your blog, you know best about its purpose. Write the basics with a lot of originality so that readers get something new to read about.
Be friendly and nice
It is very important to infuse generous amounts of “likeability” factor in your first blog post.
Make the write up very interactive, add a bit of wit and humor and make it fun to read. The first blog post should be written in a very friendly manner that makes readers want to come back for more.
Proofread and edit
Don’t post your article as soon as you are done writing it.
Go through the write up critically and edit wherever needed. Show it to a friend or a family member and get it proofread. Since it is your first blog post, you don’t want silly mistakes in language and grammar to present an inefficient image about your endeavor.
When your first blog post is written well, you get good response for it, which propels you to do better in the successive posts. So, take time and create a masterpiece for your first blog entry.
