Hello world! while starting my first blog in my life, I am doing research on how- to create content for blog. After a search on Google, have landed on a page by About.com titled “10 Ways To Create Content For Your Weblog“, my feeling on this article is more of blogging for dummies to find content. Internet Vibe have mentioned some interesting points in his article “How to create content that will get you loads of links“, getting loads of links would definitely helps increasing your blog popularity. 3 summaries from this articles are:-

  1. Select A Hot Topical Issue – May be ad-hoc issues which popularity fade over time.
  2. Controversy Will Get You Links – Interesting enough this is offline newspapers great secret to high sales.

Copyblogger’s “5 Simple Ways to Open Your Blog Post With a Bang“, below are the suggested 5 opening ways that keep your audiences awake.

  1. Opening your post with a question. Creates curiosity and gets the reader thinking.
  2. Share an Anecdote or Quote. A nice quote from a recognizable authority or famous person can also work wonders.

From the same author, “How to Write a Killer “How To” Article That Gets Attention“, seems to be directly relevant to my current post, hopefully learn something useful that instantly applicable. Below some interesting points of the article.

  1. People nowadays seek for quick solutions rather than lengthy explanation. Focusing on the “better, easier, and happier” is the key to great “how to” headlines and content.
  2. Create a title with “How to … that …”, for example, How to Get a Mortgage That Saves You Money.
  3. Leave out the “To” will give better result, for example, How One Easy Tweak Makes Windows XP Crash Proof.
