On this occasion I will give a trick and guide about Tips for posting quality blog articles and full of ideas.

Writing is like talking. The difference is through writing and not sound. So writing can actually be attached to people who like to talk, although not always. But the average person who likes to talk, discuss, exchange ideas, and even debate will definitely like to write because there are so many ideas, thoughts, knowledge, and experiences that they want to share. So, the concept of writing can be underlined, namely Pouring ideas/ideas, knowledge, or experiences (and feelings) in written form. Even a writer of fiction can not be separated from the idea, knowledge, and experience itself even though his work does not talk about factual things.

“If you can speak fluently when delivering something, for example when giving a speech or presentation, it is because the content/material has been mastered and structured well. The same is true with writing”

Writing is a deliberate activity, although it may be born from unintentional conditions (eg sad to be left by a girlfriend, then suddenly want to write poetry… sad sob…). Because it is intentional (consciously), writing is an activity that requires intention or will. Willingness cannot appear intact if it is forced. So writing is my favorite. Whatever is done with pleasure must be delicious, just flow like that without a burden…

What’s the point? Before I answer with tips-tips for writing quality articles, please note that what will be conveyed may not have any effect if it is not preceded by the intention – desire – to write / write something as stated above. If you want to blog without writing, then like salt without the ocean, uh upside down, meaning the sea without salt. So it’s fresh water. It’s fine, but it’s always going to be like that. plate. deserted. Quiet. Tired of being alone.
Back to “write without running out of ideas“. Running out of ideas? From what I got from the question above, maybe it means that when writing, very little can be written, so that what is written is a little because it is stuck; I don’t know what to write anymore. This is due to several things, including : immaturity of the points to be conveyed, lack of information, and boredom. Saturated? Yes, a brain that is already saturated will not produce anything if it is forced to work.

Well, to make writing that you think is worthy, quality, and full of (solid) ideas, there are a few tips that I can suggest. It should be noted that the following tips should not be considered as technical factors, because if they are carried out purely technically, they can actually lose their essence.

1. Before writing, make preparations in advance, both written and physical material. Writing material comes from ideas on certain topics. Look for the idea, “What do I want to write about today?” “What can I offer my readers and benefit them?” “What do I know and can I pour?” “What’s my favorite theme?” Don’t think about writing titles, keywords, etc.; ssssttt… that’s a later thing. Do not just limit the writing to be made.

2. The best writing ideas are from things that have been experienced, known, understood, and mastered properly. Avoid writing things that if it is burdensome and not understood.

3. Do it research and reference collecting. Rich ideas will enrich the writing as well. Do research or study related topics to broaden and see from other points of view. Understand these points of view and use them as references. Many quality articles related to any topic and can be easily searched on search engines. Empirical stuff proves to be more interesting and powerful in the eyes of the reader than ideas that are just unidirectional and less grounded.

Even when you don’t want to write, make it a habit to learn the topics you like through various media. Reading is an important point that can enrich knowledge and experience. People who like to write definitely like to read.

4. At this stage, do not write anything first as the content of the post. Don’t even open a post editor or any writing tool to write posts. Once again, ssshhh… that’s later. Gather scattered ideas, put them together in one small note.

5. After enough ideas and materials have been collected. Start writing main idea. “Well, why is it really a language lesson???” Yes, because it’s important. If you still can’t keep the main idea in your brain, then write it down in a small note. Make bullet points. For example, “In writing A, I want to convey: 1. Opening topic about overcoming duplicate meta description (intro); 2. Why is this topic important?; 3. What is the cause and what is the effect?; 4. Is there a solution?; 5. If so, what is the solution?; 6. How to apply the solution?. That’s just an example, of course the case will be different if the topic is different. But all use the same concept: What; Why; Who/What; How; Where or When (if any).
6. Using the basic ideas above, ask yourself, do these points already have an answer? If so, then my friend is ready to write it into the article. If not, look for the answers again until you find them. Answer in detail and nothing is missed. In this way, your writing will not only be long, but also full of important content and points, readers won’t want to miss it.

Some say that writing too long is boring, especially for the size of a blog post because readers prefer to read with a scanning or fast reading system. But I have proven that long posts can do more, provide more detailed content, have a basis, and lower the bounce rate of course. There are no rules regarding the length of blog posts.

7. After steady, start writing according to the answers that have been found earlier. In this way, my friend does not have to think too hard, just remember the answers and design and arrange them in written form. Guaranteed not stuck. In fact there will be very much written down. So, if necessary, edit or delete points that are not too important.

8. When writing, use first and second person concepts. This is legal for blogs. Why? Yes, because this is a blog, a personal note of a blogger and not a college handbook. Use of third persons only when necessary. For example, I tend to use the word “I” when speaking to “you” or “friend”. Thus, the writing feels closer and seems direct (two-way and contains the present). It is as if the author is speaking directly to the reader. Like ME, who is now talking to PALET, although it is possible that this article was written CENTURIES ago.

9. If in the process of writing you feel stuck or deadlocked, stop. Put down a pencil, uh… I mean keyboard or laptop. Go on an excursion…. That means do other things. Resume when it’s ready and fresh, either later, tomorrow, or any time it’s up to you. Do not rush. In this way, the writing does not seem forced. In addition, there will be many new ideas, information, and references that can be found so that they can become solutions.

The demand to publish blog posts as soon as possible and as much as possible can damage the content of the writing. Your blog doesn’t sue you, so don’t sue your blog. Hehe… I could even spend a week making one post. Do not be lulled by the lure that the number of posts is good, not necessarily. Focus on what you want to present to the reader, Worth it or not? Amazing or not? Provide a solution or not? Fun or not? Worth or not? etc…..

10. The last, but not least, point is checking. Is the article ready to be published? Anything still missing? Something’s not quite right? Have you missed anything? There is something wrong? If still not sure, don’t publish! Save in drafts. Reread. This is the time for you to review your own work before publishing. Are you satisfied with reading it? Do you feel that the article deserves to be published? Mind and heart cannot lie. Cieee….. But it’s true, you don’t need to ask other people to judge it. Just judge from your own point of view first. Only then, leave it to the reader

Of course, for master blog writers, writing no longer requires technical matters, but essentially includes the things above. Why is that? Because they no longer write with technical references, but instincts. Things that are done repeatedly and liked over time become instincts. So, learn and hone your writing skills.

Hmmm…. Is that so? Maybe someone will respond “Alaaahhh, just want to make a blog post as complicated as wanting to be President, just copy and paste it’s okay!” Haha. It’s okay, it’s up to who has the blog. But what needs to be emphasized here is about how improve the quality of blog content so it takes seriousness, whatever the purpose of blogging. If you want to have authority & want your blog to have value, quality, and can be taken into account by many people, of course there must be an effort. No wonder there is a saying, a blogger is an author… A blogger is a writer (someone who has authority). Isn’t it weird if you claim to be a blogger, but don’t have writing or rely on other people’s writings? The answer lies in each of your friends.
There are still other points that I want to convey, especially regarding the exploration of ideas, but in the future they will be discussed.cover in other posts.

Hopefully useful and good luck.

Thank you ^_^
