The truth is that blogging can afford us freedom and luxuries that’s what we all want. But in order to get all these, we need to make sure that we are going to do everything right.
So, after you have been set up your mind to become a blogger, you’ve to set up your blog and you will need to start writing posts. Your first blog post is the primary basis of your Blogging Business. Getting it wrong turns you towards failure but if you get it right, you’ll able to make proper foundation for your success.
It should not be anything mind blowing but you want to write your first blog article such that your first set of visitors should come back to your blog after reading your first article. You want to attract them so much that they can’t just help but tell to their friends about this nice blog they just visited [i.e. your blog].
Many people don’t think about this in the beginning and after installing WordPress, almost all bloggers want to do is to Publish anything just to let everyone known that they are online. I want to say Sorry, because it doesn’t work like that.
The truth is that if you fail to attract your first set of visitors interest at deep level by your first article then you’ll loose them forever. So with that brutal truth, let’s focus on how to write a attractive first blog article.
This is Exactly What Your First Blog Post Should Be About:
As a blogger first important thing is who is just starting out. These are some things you should have in your First Blog Post:
1. Who Are You?
You are just going into the online world and no one knows you. If someone supposed to trust you and bookmark your website or blog, then they need to know Who You Are. If you want to connect with people on deep level then tell them:
- What are your experiences in life?
- Is this article is your first blog?
- Who are you as a person, profession, and blogger?
The more you tell about yourself, the more you connect with the visitors and the more they will trust you and hear what you are saying or writing. Not only talk about yourself but you should also show some pictures of yours. Don’t be the strange man behind the keyboard.
Having your identity or pictures on your own blog will show your authenticity and your visitors will start having trust on you. The main motive behind that, is to tell and show your visitors all they want to know about who you are.
2. Why Are You Blogging?
It is an important thing because if people don’t know why you are doing this and what are you doing then they will have no reason to trust you. One thing you should keep in your mind while answering these quetions, about your visitors you want to attract to your blog. Ask yourself this:
- Why would someone visit my blog?
- What would be they looking for?
- What’s in my blog for my visitors?
Tell your visitors why you are there. They will appreciate your view and will want to connect with you more.
3. What Are You Going To Be Blogging About?
This question is very close to second one. Once you have answered that one, this one becomes easier. Tell your visitors what should they expecting on your blog. Let them know exactly that what they will get every time when they visit to your website. It is a best idea to let them know how often you will be updating the blogs and at what day and time if you have scheduled it.
Don’t create a generic blog by writing about anything or everything. Make sure that your blog is well designed and focused on particular topics with separate categories for all topics and sub-topics. This will help you to boost your Authority Level and allow your visitors to you as an expert in your all fields.
4. Who Are You Writing For?
In your first article, don’t forget to talk about your target visitors.
- Who are the people you will be writing for?
- What are they like?
The main point behind this is to empathize your visitors so that they will feel welcomed and trust that you understand their problems very well. Coming up with an emotion will let your visitors know that you are there for them whenever they needs you.
5. How Can They Get Involved?
You need to let your visitors know how they can get involved. You need to let them know that they can reach you if they need to.
- Do encourage comments?
- What about Guest posting?
- How can readers email you if they have any query, suggestions, or complaints?
Encourage visitors for every comments, also don’t afraid to encourage for disagreement or negative comment. Some of the visitors will disagree sometimes with your point of view and if they can’t share those disagreements with you then they won’t trust you. So, do whatever you what to do to ensure that feedback is appreciated. If you set a time period for being contacted at a particular time then let them known, what time it should be.
6. Clearly State Your Blogging Goals:
Every blogger should share their goals of their blog with their visitors in your first post. Sharing your goals with your visitors will make them understand your transparency.
- What are you looking to achieve with the blog?
- What will you want to blog after a duration?
When you share your goal with them sometimes they will help you to achieve those goals easily and earlier.
