    Adding compelling images to your content will help tell your story and affect how users perceive it. Focus on images that will set the quality for your post and draw people in.

    Also keep your content of good length. Unique and quality content is always appreciated by search engines especially by Google. Also focus on keyword density if you are interested in on-page SEO for your blog post.

    I agree with you Timb. Those should be our guidelines before writing. I agree with guptaabhijit318 that you should add "Wow" images on your blog. After the blog post, share it on several social media platforms as promotions. Your Title will be the gateway of your future readers so its important that your title is catchy and contain your at least one keyword.

    The points you have mentioned in the post are very important to follow. A good and informative post can attract more and more visitors to your blog. Blogs are one of the best way to derive lots of traffic to your website.

    Even blog rank faster than a website and the reason behind that is that blogs are updated regularly with informative posts and due to this reason blog crawled and rank first.

    Appreciate your points.

    WOW... everybody's comments are super useful. Thanks!

    It takes most people 6 years of college to become mediocre writers so don't feel bad. My advice is to just pay $25 to a starving college student in NYU or Berkeley. =)

    Beyond that, the best advice I can give is this:

    The most successful headlines with highest click through ratios all start with

    A) The Top 10 SECRET WAYS TO....

    B) How To _____ For Angry Women
    (use a weird qualifier that everyone fits into anyways... but if you do, people will think, WAIT, That's ME!)

    C) The Truth About ________...

    D) Ouch. I Didn't Realize That You Actually

    And make SURE you use the word "YOU" first and frequently.

    How to create a good blog post:

    1. Keep your writing brief and concise.
    2. Keep a clear flow of your content and your ideas - keeping it intact and relevant to what you're talking about.
    3. To keep this kind of flow and intact idea, create an outline of your post, avoiding you to seemingly go around the bush.
    4. RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH - to be able to defend or have a foundation and reliable resource that you can cite whenever people asks you about it.
    5. Summarize. Put into conclusion what you have just shared about.


    Regards,

    As per my personal suggestion, everyone can start a blog but not everyone knows how to write a blog people actually want to read.Every effort made on your blog impacts the readers from the content to the design and everything else in between.For me the most important part of any blog is what one has to say and how. People will definitely return back to the blog if they like what has been written about a specific subject and the writing style.here are certain steps to follow for writing a good blog post:
    -Decide the topic.
    -Outline the post.
    -Keep the blog content clean and intact and relevant to what the blog is talking about.
    -Keep the writing brief and concise.
    -Interlink the blog, correlate with the theme of writing.

    The best point of Blogs post is how much time your visitor spend on reading the blog...So make it attractive by using various colour combination, no too much colour, just decent yet attractive..Include diagram and pics that symbolizes the essence of your blog... Write in easy to understand language and style that your targeted niche can associate with....

    Background should also be framed carefully keeping all above in mind....

    The look and feel of your blog is another factor..
    Sometimes, what makes a visitor spend more time on your blog posts is not just because of the post itself - but also the comments below the post.

    It is where people exchange their thoughts - creating interaction between them. It is where your readers start debating, or adding ideas base on your post.
    Most of the time, even though how great your page looks like - if no interaction between your reader - as well as you being the author.

    Also, don't write about the same stuff other blogs are writing about unless it's your words entirely and a different take on it. SEO, webmaster, etc. topics get old really fast.
