Let’s shorten the preparation time with this is the recipe for a blog post:

- Call to action
The preparation according to the recipe for a good blog post.
The first thing your visitors will pay attention to is the title (read more on my other article.)
What requirements should a good title meet? A good title:
- – less than 55 characters
- – unique and specific
- – useful for readers, there must be ‘something to get’
- – catchy
If you have no inspiration to create a catchy title, use online apps to come up with a great idea for your headline. The headline analyzer/ is a tool to check your title. (To be honest, I’m not so sure whether the title checker handles Dutch text so reliably. I’m curious about your findings).
After your catchy title, add a section about what your story is about. A quick impression that invites you to read further. I recommend recreating your intro after your post is ready. This way you can highlight small fragments from the different headings in your intro.
At the end of your introduction, add something to create more interest. A kind of warming, making a promise, something like “the best is yet to come…”. You can do this, for example, by revealing an interesting fact, adding a motivating quote, asking a question
Add a statistic or quote the source. Hoppah, that’s another link and good for your SEO 😉
Subtitles and lists
To improve readability, create subheadings and paragraphs. Plus, it’s a good idea to write lists.
In addition to photos, consider:
- relevant links
While it’s almost impossible to cover everything in one blog post, it’s important to include links to reliable websites. It improves your reputation (read: ranking on Google) and allows the visitor to delve further into the subject.
Add a quote or quotation. Quotes are also often shared on social media, so make sure it is easy to make a piece of text or the quote ‘tweetable’. The more you share, the better your visibility.
Concluding is a must. A wrap-up should summarize all the ideas and encourage readers to discuss the topic. Make sure you close your blog properly. You want to leave an impression that will keep your readers coming back for more.
