    I am getting ready to launch my blog about fitness and dieting. Your posts are so helpful. This is really insightful because I never considered the 8th element until now. Thanks!

    I loved the session you did on blogging for Karon Thackston’s online copywriting series. Very good information that I am trying to incorporate into my blog posts:-)

    As a relatively new blogger, I feel comfortable about providing content that’s unique ane on topics that I have significant experience. I appreciate you’re advice regarding the signature and PS.

    I’m curious about something? I notice that many people such as yourself and sugarrae for instance, typically write longer posts, by longer I would guess they are mostly over 1000 words at least. Meanwhile Brogan and his friends write much shorter posts but post with more frequency.

    I didn’t notice any mention of suggested word count in this article.

    It seems there is a fine line in being rich in content and being readable by visitors, especially when you’re a “newbie” like myself. It seems as though if you load the post with content for G benefit you miss out on some visitors who are just scanners as opposed to readers.

    What is you suggestion for a newer blogger in terms of length and frequency?

      I personally think that the post length does not matter. If the content surpasses the readers expectations and provides a real value, it doesn’t matter. It is sort of like a great song. Some great songs are short, some are long. But either way, they are still great!

    Even after so many years on the net i still see people that don’t know how to pick a proper title for their articles. And it amazes me how thick they can be. I always try to place myself in the shoes of the reader when i write, that way i can partially understand what my readers prefer. And it’s obvious that a boring title will not bring readers, because even i wouldn’t click on it.
    I always emphasize on this part when people ask for advices about writing.

    Hi Lynn

    Just wanted to say that I really liked your tip on adding a PS at the end of a blog post. It’s a habit most people forget to include which really helps to personalize a message. I use it as well and it does make a difference in getting people to respond.

    Best wishes!

    Well said, Lynn! The 8th element in this list will definitely keep the visitor in your blog for a long time. Entertaining people with good content is one of the awesome achievements that a blogger can get.

    Outstanding tips Lynn! I think you have about ten seconds to catch someones attention when they reach a webpage. You need to make sure the page is very eye appealing or you will lose the reader real quickly. After appearance the content and of course SEO need to be top notch as well.

    I like your idea regarding the use of the PS to break up your end and to reinforce the call to action for your reader. That tip went on my list for future blog entries.

    How brings readers and makes sales? Write post:”How to write a blog post that brings readers and makes sales.”. Joke:)
    Good rules. I know some top authors have the same post’s directivity. Rules are always different.

    Lynn, great post my friend. There is one thing you said that really stuck out to me, and that is where you stated that we need to give our readers what they want!! that is so key. sometimes I think we forget that and are constantly righting what we want and forgetting about our audience. Quality content for them will spur sales and create a buzz. Great post Lynn! Love your blog by the way! :-)

    I’m so glad I found your site on google. I read this post and it really helped me a lot. I am going to start using your 7 steps to writing my posts instead of just writing freely. I am very new to internet marketing and started my blog while learning, so I am making mistakes along the way. I also like the signature at the end. I’m going to do that too! Thanks for great content.
