you want to write about. Blogs are interesting because you can
use them in several ways. You can use them as a personal
journal of sorts if you wish. You can also use them as a place
to post your opinions and views. Lastly, you can use them as a
place to put short articles of interest for others to read.
If you are choosing to use your blog as a journal, you might
not need much planning. You will probably simply want to begin
writing and see where it takes you. If you want to use the
for your opinions or for articles however, you will need to

This step may seem tedious, but it will make the other steps
much more quickly, so be sure not to skip it.
Choose a Tone
After you have chosen your topic and created your short
outline, you will need to choose your tone. The most
blogs are written in a casual tone, which is a welcoming idea
most non-professional writers. Don’t worry about grammatical
rules. Simply choose a tone that is like the one you would use
when speaking with your spouse or a great friend. The tone
should be friendly and stress-free.
Write Your Post
When you sit down to write your post, remember the tone you
chose for your piece. Keeping the tone in mind put your topic
idea and outline in front of you and begin writing. You should
keep your blogs posts pretty short. They should contain your
main point within the first sentence or two. Don’t ramble on

words altogether. This may sound like a lot, but once you

exactly like you would speak. Avoid large words that some
people may stumble over. Create interesting, yet simple posts
for everyone to enjoy.

your name to the bottom with a special symbol nearby. It
does not matter how you choose to end your post. Be sure to
choose a signature ending however. A signature ending is a
great way for regular readers to see that your post is ending.

your blog seem more personal.

edit your work. Editing is not always a fun thing to do, but

over your work. Look for misspelled words and other common
mistakes. Although you are not worrying about grammar, you
should not misspell words. When you are certain your text is
mistake-free, you can move on to the last step.
