This is my take on how to write a blog and how to make money from it. I will use football, as a topic to demonstraight this to you, but you can use the same format for any topic, so you can literally write about anything?
This topic came about from one of you lovely readers who asked this question how can they do what I am doing right now, in other words writing a blog?
They asked me, is there a way of me showing you how you can write a blog about football (or about anything you like). So here goes, I will show you or anyone, how you can do this and write a successful blog.
The answer is yes I can show you how to write a blog and explain the in’s and out’s of getting it right.
This is my break down, move by move, from one position into the next on how to write a blog…about football – remember use the same format for your chosen subject that you are writing about)
These are the tools needed to write a blog :
- What to write about?
- Your own website.
- A content page to write on.
- A content editor.
- A keyword research tool.
- The right knowledge & training.
What to write about?
Firstly decide on your niche – What am I passionate about?
You need to think about your topic, in this case I will use the beautiful game of football to show you how write a blog. There are an unlimited number of things you could write about within this topic.
Let’s say today’s topic within the subject of football is that you wanted to talk the reader about how to score a goal? (This will be heading one)
This is how you would go about it and put the whole blog or article together, lets begin.
Start with you headings.
You need at least four or five catchy headings throughout each page and article all related to how to score a goal?
The first heading lets the reader know what the whole article will be about?
The last one needs to be like a conclusion heading for you to sum up the article for your readers.
Here are five example headings below to wet your appetite and make you want to read this article.
How to score a goal with my left foot?
Can I use my right foot to score a goal?
How to score a goal from inside the box?
Using your head to score a goal?
Let your goals propel you into the spotlight!
After each heading you need to break down that section with some words about that heading. That is called the content of the blog. The body of the article. It is describing to your reader what you want to say about your topic
Your article you write needs to be at least 1000 words minimum to fully explain what you are talking about. This amount of words will give your blog a full look and give you enough words to be able to get your point across to whoever decides to read the article on the world wide web.
Below is an example of what I am talking about, the heading followed by some words. It’s just easier to show you what I am writing about for you. ( sorry to say – it’s a snippet explaining things to you and not the full story )
How to score a goal with my left foot? (heading)
If you are going to score the goals for your team and become known as a goal machine then you need to make sure that you are two footed. Let’s start by looking at the left foot…etc (this part in know as the body of text)
From the above I made the main heading bigger to catch the reader’s eye then I followed it with what the content explaining what the heading is all about.
Just simply follow this procedure down the whole page so that is 4 or 5 catchy headings and content below each one and you will have your required number of words (about 1000) and a complete article.
When you have enough words in the body of context and before the next heading, it is time to break the content you have written down into smaller easier to read parts. A few lines then a gap.
Why do you need to do this? In today’s fast pace World, people don’t have the time to scroll through a difficult to read article. It needs to be made as easy as possible to read.
This is the whole point of writing the blog in the first place, for the whole world to read it and to keep coming back to your future blogs to read more.
Congratulations you have the basic to a blog about football.
Think you are capable of doing this and writing about your passion or hobby, then check out this platform that will give you the right training to write a blog correctly.
So what is next to complete your amazing blog?
A picture is worth a thousand words!
Next thing to think about before you send it to the World to read, is how can make your article more special to attract the readers to what you are saying? Without adding any more words to make it more appealing?
The simple answer for you is add images throughout the article about 3 or 4, use even more if you think it will help the article. There is no set amount here, the pictures just need to catch your reader’s eye throughout the page
The key here is to make sure the pictures relate to what you are talking about.
For example your blog is about football and how to score a goal so add a picture like this below. Not some random picture of a person standing on a beach because that would make no sense and confuse your reader:)
Next step is where do you find pictures for you to use?
With the right know how and tools you can find them free throughout the internet. It is easier than you think to find them and then to add them into you blog post. Try Google or Bing search engines, then click on images (but make sure you check usage rights to make sure you are free to use them)
You can also add a YouTube video to your article, they have a special embedded code in them which you can place into your article and it will appear as the YouTube video you want.
Again make sure this YouTube video relates to what you are talking about. It needs to add value to your blog post.
Adding the code is an easier task than you think. Just go onto YouTube, search for a video related to your subject, the hit the share button, an embedded code will appear. Click copy go back to you article and click paste. Like magic, it will appear on your blog post.
So far you have heading, some amazing content for your reader to enjoy, pictures to bring your article to life and a YouTube video in place showing the reader more of what you are talking about.
Good let’s move on now.
Can writing a blog make you money?
Is there something you can do within your article to give you the opportunity to make any money?
The answer is yes if you are doing Affiliate Marketing, you simply add a link to some highlighted words throughout the content of your blog.
The link takes your reader to a specific product, or page that you are promoting,
That gives the reader the chance to go and buy something through your lovely website or article.
Your article is about how to score a goal remember! So use words in your article like” to score the perfect goal you need the best boots“.(now click the link button, and send them off to buy some boots)
Words that are highlighted makes them stand out and your reader is attracted to them.
Where does any link go?
It could send them off to Amazon for example, or any Affiliate program. Firstly you need to sign up to that Company’s affiliate programme, who’s products you want to promote. There are millions of products and businesses that need people to promote and market those products for that Company.
Then they give you an affiliate code for that product attached to your name. (it’s technical and thankfully you don’t need to worry about that).
Then take your link which is in code form and you place it into where the words have been highlighted in your content, with a simple click of a Link button.
That’s it! Now you never need to change it forever. Anytime anyone reads this article and decides to click on the highlighted word, the potential is there for you to make some money.
TIP: make sure you check the link goes exactly where you want it to go before you publish the post.
Sounds difficult to do but is actually quite easy to do with the correct training and know how.
Let’s say you have 50 or even 100 articles with 5 or 6 links on all of them with products for readers to look at.
You do the maths. I smell potential to make money and so do you!
That’s it job done! You have written a blog about football, now use the same format for any subject that interests you.
The best thing is you can adopt the same process for any topic food, travel, beer, fashion, the latest gadgets, money etc. So you could have a blog about anything that interests you.
Every article goes through the same procedure and process.
So once you learn how to do one you could write 1000 or more articles if you wanted to.
