What do I mean by a scintillating blog post ?

A scintillating blog post is one that scintillates. That’s all.

Yes I mean it. It must flash and glitter brilliantly with respect to reader’s attention and interest. If your headline doesn’t connect, you haven’t penned that great post as yet. If the reader is not mesmerized by the images and videos on your post it’s not yet that post.

So what exactly does a scintillating blog post contain? Match your blog post with this checklist:

  • A central idea woven around a personal experience
  • An attention grabbing headline

  • An exciting intro

  • Original, unique, engaging but a short piece of content in simple and easy-to-understand language

  • A breathtaking visual presentation

  • A hidden value for the reader, appealing directly or indirectly (preferably a tutorial)

  • Real life motivational examples or surprising survey data

  • Proofs for the facts you provide

Besides, it does not contain a single word that's not required to establish the intent of the post.

Some Scintillating examples

Above, I have talked about what a scintillating blog post must contain. Here I give some instances:

Headlines:

It's an art to write captivating head lines. Following are but some examples to show how the likes of Neil Patel and Carol Tice entice their readers:

Value for the reader/ Motivational examples:

This kind of posts require research work and consume time but are sure to generate traffic and dollars. You may click any or all of these posts and have an idea what makes these posts great.

Original content:

In the following post Adam Hughes has knit a post around a very original idea showing the negative effects of what you could consider your positive quality

Proof of the facts provoded:

Click and go through this post and you'll soon understand why Harsh Agarwal is one of the top bloggers of India.

Breathtaking image in your blogpost:

Only after you see the lead image in the post will you understand how a breathtaking image grabs the attention of the reader




You have to have these before you start

Pre-requisites. That's what I'm talking about.

Before you start check for these:

  • Whether you have switched-off your phone and similar distracting devices
  • Whether you have at least 1 image and 1 video ready
  • Whether the theme of your post is ready
  • Whether your subs are ready
  • Whether your keywords are ready

If the answer to all of the above is 'YES' you're ready to start.

      Dear all

      The idea behind writing such a post was to help newbie bloggers to gain on productivity. The pre requisites I have mentioned in the post do take time for research. I mean there's a hidden chunk of time connected with the said hour of writing. That's why you need to keep your inventory of ideas overflowing.

      Thanks.
