Your first blog post should be something you will remember…I wish I remember what my first post was, but I wish I did. Give it some thought… When you have a concept just run with it. Make sure to tell a story in your post. Don’t just throw up cold hard facts, instructions, or other information that is completely impersonal.
You will build an audience by letting your personality shine through. Facts can be found anywhere, but presenting the information in an entertaining or informative way is harder to find. As a blogger your challenge is always to look at something from your readers’ perspective. What would they like to know? How can I deliver information or value? If you do well at this, your following will grow quickly. If you do a poor job at this, you will always struggle.
As with any content on your site, it doesn’t have to be perfect the first time it is published. It is very easy in WordPress to go back and revise posts or pages when you come up with new ideas. In fact, making changes and updates is looked upon favorably by Google and most readers.
Are you stuck on idea for your first post? Here are some ideas:
-Make another version of your About me page. You can easily adapt the content you created for your About Me page and adapt it to your first blog post. Just make sure to make some changes so you are not duplicating it exactly
-Write about how you got interested in your niche
-Write about a favorite topic within your niche
-Write a tribute to someone or something that you admire
There are endless ideas for creating blog posts. The point here is to get your feet wet with writing blog posts. You’ll find that they get much easier to do, the more you do it! Also, you’ll get a lot better the more you do it.
