1. Be original

Try to be different from the crowd. Don’t try to imitate someone else. Creative Tips To Write Stunning Articles

Be personal, don’t write like a robot.

Be honest and genuine, put your heart into your writing.

 

2. Style your posts

Creative Tips To Write Stunning Articles

Use H2 and H3 tags to make de readability for your public good.

Use paragraphs and bullet points. Use colors. But I advice you to be cautious with red.

People don’t like long paragraphs of text.

When you use colors, try to limit it to two.

A blog about cooking without picture will be less attractive then one with pictures.

 

3. Use the same style

Use one sort of character and simular kind of pictures from the

same size. Use numbers or text. Example of bad styling:

1 and two = 3Use the same H2 for every chapter.

4. Optimize for search enginesCreative Tips To Write Stunning Articles

    I could defiantly use the tips here, since I feel my posts and pages on my site are a little boring, I try to keep them simple, but that also lead to unimaginative things. I know my articles need to be longer, but it is hard to make them that way, but I hope this can help

    • Loes says:

      Hi Kevin, I know from experience that with every blog you write, you increase your skills and before you know it, you will type out blogs with over 1000 words without any effort. Keep on practicing. And I truly hope my blog will help you with that. Have a great creative and productive day. Kind regards, Loes

  2. Chris says:

    My checklist for writing usually revolves around writing in a first person mode – it is natural and it seems more like the way a relaxed person would talk. I also pay special attention to word count because in my experience it doesn’t matter as much as you think it does (a good article is just that regardless of length). What do you think of these angles?

    • Loes says:

      Hi Chris, thank you for your comment, I will try to answer your questions. It depends, which subject the article is about, I do think the about me page should be written in the first person only. I do see about me pages written as: Loes is a mother and daycare owner, and Loes is… etc. That is definitely not the correct way of presenting yourself. I do not agree about your statement of the length of a post, it is proven that the bare minimum length should be 300 words, and the worth of the post is increasing enormously in the eyes of Google when the length is above 750 to 3000 words.
      300 = bare minimum,
      500 = a bit better,
      750 = better,
      1000 = good,
      1500 = excellent,
      2000 and more = fabulous.
      Above the 3000 words you need to be a very gifted writer to keep your reader entertained.

      I hope this makes things a bit clearer for you.

      Kind regards, Loes

  4. Hana says:

    Great Tips Loes. I always write when inspired, sometimes it will be after taking a nice walk, having a nice conversation with an inspiring person or even about ideas gotten in the shower. I don’t force it when not inspired or not feeling it..

    Thank you,

    Hana

    • Loes says:

      Hi Hana, thank you very much, we all have our ups and downs when it comes to writing content, glad you liked my article, I wish you a lot of very inspiring moments, kind regards, Loes

  5. Robert says:

    Great post Loes! I really like the slide show you used at the beginning which I later realized when reading through your post were the images you used. I’m going to have to look into that Slideful program, I have some ideas for that.

    Yes writing an effective blog does take more than just writing words down on a page. Though your thoughts should flow naturally there is a certain structure and guidelines that will help to make the blog stand out from all of the rest currently on the net.

    Thanks for listing these tips for us all. It should definitely help many.

    Robert

  6. John says:

    Loes,
    You do have a creative writing style. Your tips are straight to the point. I do like the way you bubble your words in the pictures.
    The smart links are something I always have to remind the new people about, if your site is closed the readers will not come back.
    I have the problem of just writing sometimes without any feelings in it. It is just boring to read.
    Very creative tips for the beginners and for the veterans of IM.
    John

    • Loes says:

      Hi John, thank you for your reply. When you write something, just imagine a cuppa coffee and a good friend sitting beside you. And start writing as if you are telling him something. (put a picture on your desk and talk;)

      Glad you’ve enjoyed it here, you are very welcome to come back anytime 🙂

      Loes
