The One Thing Every Good Blog Post Needs

These days everyone has a blog. The online world is filled with blogs on every topic imaginable. The selection may be immense but you will find the quality of content may be less than stellar. Providing good quality content consistently is the best way to help your site stand out from the competition. Whether you want to promote your small business, start an online revenue stream or simply write stuff others want to read, the key to making your blog successful is with good blog posts. What makes a post more than just second-rate? High-quality posts all have one thing in common – a clearly-defined, singular purpose.

Ramblings Gone Wrong

One of the biggest problems facing bloggers is the tendency to ramble. Nothing is more deadly to a blog than a series of articles that trail off on tangents lacking substance and interest along the way. While a story about nothing may have worked for Seinfeld, it doesn’t for those looking to build their amount of subscribers online. When you lack a clear purpose for your post, you also lack a voice and talking about this, that and the other becomes easy to do. Avoiding rambling in your writing by defining your purpose before you start.

Tips for Discovering Purpose

There are many ways to go about defining the purpose of your post. Brainstorming different topics is one way to do this. Another way to accomplish the task is with a blog topic generator tool such as this one by HubSpot. Reading the news and stories of interest can also help spur ideas for your next article. Once you have a general topic, narrow down the emphasis to one singular aspect of that area. This will provide greater focus for your post.
