Here you can see an image of my first blog back in February 2008. You can see that, the article is a mess. There are no line breaks, any usage of formatting or no paragraph style. This way I had a hard time to attract readers on my blog because they don’t wanted to read this bulk amount of text. I used an image to make it more interesting but still it was not helping much.
One day one of my friend told me that she don’t want to read my articles because its tiring for her eyes to read all of the huge amount of text with no breaks. Then I thought I should separate my articles into short paragraphs to make it easy to read.
On the image, you can see two ads in the bottom of the article. These are affiliate ads and I put them in all of my articles. There were 7 articles in the front page, that means people will get to see the ads 7 times in the main page.
Do you know how much I got paid for the ads? Zero! Because I now have the idea that, putting lots of ads in a page does not work. Actually it works to get your visitors go away from your blog. Having lots of visitors with low ads, increases the results of getting profit.
Here are some tips which will help you to create an interesting article structure,
Break your articles into small paragraphs. This helps your readers to read your blog. They can have the chance to read any paragraph they want.
Use sub headers
You are seeing the example on this article. You can name your paragraphs with a sub header. This way your readers will know what is being writen about in this paragraph.
Use good formatting
Like Bold, Italic, Underline, Colors. But don’t use it many times, otherwise it won’t look professional.
You can add relavent images on your blog post. This will help to attract more people. But if you add lots of images, it will take more time to load your blog.
Use block quote
You can use this to show special words or comments taken from other people/ site. Here is the example,
Choose what you like, select that to do,
you’ll find some one, impressed from you.
Use bullets and numbering
- People will know some points
- You can share a word
- Give an example or
- A product name
- website or
- An article to show
Use a final conclusion
Just like I add it to all of my articles. I hope you liked this article and you can ask for my help any time. You can also Stumble this article. You can also add some questions after the article to get them involved in the content like,
- Did you liked this article?
- It helped you? or
- Did I missed anything?
