Every blogger has that awkward feeling. It is the absolute struggle to come up with an idea for your first blog post. You can write about anything, and that’s the main reason why writing the first blog post feels so awkward–anything doesn’t really narrow it down! There are so many topics, sub-topics, sub-topics of the sup-topics, and other things to choose from. It’s just too much.
What makes the situation awkward is that people overthink the situation. Overthinking makes the entire experience more awkward because many people try to put all of their knowledge in a particular area in one blog post. In order to make the experience less awkward, I am going to share with you good limitations you can use so you write the first blog post faster.
- Create a blog post relating to your niche.
- Choose a topic you know enough to the point where you do not have to do any research.
- For how-to articles, make it a list of three. No more and no less.
- You have a 200 word limit. That will make the entire experience less awkward.
You want to write a quick blog post the first time just so you know what it’s like to be out there. Blogging becomes less awkward as you publish more blog posts for the blog. Then you will get into a comfortable groove. The first blog post is the hardest, but afterwards, it becomes easier to write blog post after blog post.
