Some posts will feel like a chore, but if you have editorial control over what you write about, then choose topics you’d want to read – even if they relate to niche industries.

Before you do any of the following steps, be sure to pick a topic that actually interests you.

Section 2 – Writing a Blog Post - Tips on how to focus on writing, productivity tips for bloggers Section 3 – Rewriting/Editing a Blog Post - Self-editing techniques, things to watch out for, common blogging mistakes Section 4 – Optimizing a Blog Post - How to optimize a blog post for on-page SEO, social shares/engagement, etc.
