  1. Hi Fabrizio,
    great tips, there. I agree on the ‘forget SEO’ part. When I start to make blog, I choose the great theme first, just like I write a novel. And let my writing flowing like writing a story. In addition, I put some nice illustrations and pictures to emphasize the story in my blog.

      Hey Andrew thanks for stopping by man, glad you found the tips insightful. I think a lot of bloggers emphasize too much on ‘SEO’ when it comes to titling their posts and I do believe that one of the best ways to draw attention as you rightly say is to choose a great theme title, like a captivating title of a short story, thanks for your input.

  2. I am relatively new to this internet marketing thing and blogging but my mother was a creative writing teacher and I even had her for two years in a row in high school. I can add a no twelve to your list–write to please yourself and your reader will like what you have written.

      Hey David, thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment, hope to see you here again soon :)

  3. In order to write an interesting and valuable blog post I begin to work on an idea first of all. When I know the topic I wait for a week to work on article structure. When I have a ready structure and know what to write about I begin to write an article.

  4. When I read “forget SEO,” that made me cheer!

    Sometimes the heavy emphasis on SEO makes my head ache, and all the little ways to squeeze one more percent on a high SEO score makes me go cross-eyed. My best responses to posts I wrote were when I didn’t pay attention to SEO at all.

      Thanks Delena and yes you’ve hit the nail right on the head so to speak ;) If you look at the press releases for example they have such great headers and compelling titles that ultimately make you want buy a copy let alone just reading it. I’d love to be able to bring that kind of conept into writing headers for blog posts too.

    Another item:
    Don’t be afraid to write about the same topics other people are writing about. It’s very unlikely that you’re writing about something totally original in the first place, so don’t use “soandso already posted about that” as an excuse not to write.

    But, here’s the key: Make it yours. Don’t spit back the same thing everyone else wrote about the topic. Give it your own perspective. Actually think about the topic and explore it’s ideas in your mind, then write about those thoughts. That’s what will make people want to read your blog, and get them to come back for more.
