Avoid wordy sentences

Another way to make your content easier to read is to construct short and to-the-point sentences. A personal rule of mine is to limit each sentence to only 20 words or less. This makes it easier for readers to digest each and every point I’m making. If your sentence exceeds the 20-word limit, chances are it can be split into two, shorter sentences.

Don’t overthink your introduction

I agree that the introduction is one of the most important parts of an article. Its job is to capture attention, set their expectations straight, and compel your audience to read from start to finish. Sadly, some bloggers tend to overthink their introduction and put their productivity to a grinding halt. I remember being a victim of this as well — wasting several minutes typing, revising, and deleting the introduction. When in doubt, just skip writing the introduction and jump straight into the main body. Trust me, you’ll have an easier time writing it if you have a concrete idea of what your content’s about. If you still don’t know what to write, maybe these tips can help get the ball rolling:

  • Tell a simple story — Try to recall your thought process when you first came up with the content’s topic. You could be experiencing a problem, reading another blog, walking in the park, and so on.
  • Ask a question — Starting off with a question is a great way to have readers put on their thinking caps. It can be aligned with the problems they’re having or the goal they want to achieve.
  • Just get to the point — After asking a question or telling a story, my preferred strategy is to dive right in with the right phrases. Some examples are “without further ado,” “let’s get started,” and “let’s jump into it.”

Set up a backup plugin

As a serious blogger, you should see your blog as an investment. And, just like any other investment, it must be protected. The reality is, running vulnerability checks, frequent updates, and installing security plugins aren’t always enough. Remember, even websites with substantial cybersecurity measures can still get hacked. That’s why yearly cybersecurity incident reports never have a shortage of successful attack records. To give your blog a last line of defense, make it a habit to create backups of your blog files. This can be done with automatic backup software like Dropmysite or with the built-in backup tool of your hosting service. I explained the process of manually backing up your WordPress site in this post. Go ahead and click the link, but just bookmark it for now — we still have a lot to discuss.
