Tips For Writing Captivating Blog Content [Infographic]

Content is the most important element of your blog. No matter how beautiful your site is if the information in your articles lacks the quality you will never capture your audience. If on the the other hand, your blog content is fresh and interesting it will captivate your audience, compel them to explore your site and motivate them to return for more. Here I share with you over 25 tips for writing captivating blog content.

The quality of your blog content is not only important to your human visitors.  Your blog is continuously scrutinized by the search bots as they search the web for new and relevant information. What they search for is fresh, interesting and high quality content. If your writing falls short so will your blog.

The problem for the blogger is to constantly create interesting a fresh information. Many bloggers give up because at some point their content idea well gets dry. This does not have to happen. There are so many sources of ideas on almost any topic that no blogger should lack for interesting information to share with his readers.

I already shared some blog content ideas with you. For example, I mentioned that images with quotes can be an everlasting source of ideas for blog posts. I also wrote that webinars you attend and the knowledge you gain from them can serve as an excellent source of information for your articles.

There are many other sources of blog content ideas you can consider. Some of them I share below.

5 Tips For Blog Content That Will Capture Your Audience

“How to questions” answers – when you find an answer to your own questions share it with your readers. How many times did you search online to find an answer to one of your problems related to your online business. Sometimes it probably took you a long time to find what you were looking for. If you think your readers may also benefit from the solution to your problem, share it it with them. I do it all the time.

For example, recently I was quite concerned about the accumulation of my blog post revisions in the database and the fact that it may be causing my blog to slow down. After a few hours of search I found a couple of answers that solved the problem for me.

I wrote a blog post about it. My readers were quite appreciative. Not only did my article save them time, it showed them how to remove some baggage from their blog and speed it up. Do you think they will read some more of my articles? Of course they will, especially if I’ll keep sharing information that is helpful to them.

Share your failures – don’t be afraid to appear vulnerable. It lets your readers identify with you and your blog will become more believable. Of course, you don’t want your blog to become a moan and groan arena, because that is boring and unattractive. What you want to share, if you failed at something, is some insight into why you failed, what you learned from that experience and what steps you took to rise up.

Don’t be shy to share your success stories – you do have the bragging rights when you succeed. People love success stories because they give them hope. When you share such a story, your readers will want to come back to see how you are progressing. It will be a good idea to, once in a while, write about your progress.

Syndicate articles from other blogs or even ezines – search for your favorite blogs and syndicate the content of some articles to your website. You may have to ask permission of the blog owner to do so. As far as ezines are concerned, they usually have an option to syndicate. Find some excellent articles that are relevant to the topic of your blog and publish them on your blog. Just make sure that your introduction and your conclusion are your own and unique. As well, always include an appropriate reference to the syndicated articles.

Create a reading list – no doubt that you are reading books related to the topic of your blog. Review the books you are reading or have read, on your blog. Make sure to provide an honest review. People will really appreciate it. At the same time you can monetize the review. Likely the book you read and reviewed is listed on Add your affiliate Amazon link to your article. You never know, a book review may even translate into a commission.

Create infographics – if you have the capability, create an infographic. They are very informative and your visitors will love them. You don’t have to be overly artistic or creative. There are many online tools that can help you create free infographics. One of them is

    Great infographic. Many times, infographics contain so much information that they are a little too busy, but this one is really well done and therefore really informative.

    This post is a good reminder of the many different forms that content can take.

    Hi Dita,

    These are awesome points you’ve shared here. Using these as a guide it would be extremely hard for someone to find NOTHING to write about!

    I also like the infographic, as it reminded me of a couple of techniques that I’ve intended to try but haven’t as yet.

    Thanks also for mentioning I’ve never heard of that site before but it looks like it could be a really useful so I’ve bookmarked it in my resources folder and will definitely be giving it a try.

    I hope all’s well and that you have a great rest of the week, Dita 🙂

      Hi Glenn, is a great site. Not only because it allows you to create awesome infographics, it also gives you and opportunity to use some of the infographics that are in their library. There is a lot of amazing info in that library (bad info as well, so you have to be quite selective). As long as you link to the source you can use the info on your blog, another great content source.

    Great infographic Dita. I have seen it before but it never hurts to be reminded.

    Writing captivating content is certainly an art but one that I think can be learned. It always helps to read other blogs that you like or that are popular to see how they write and pick up some tips.

    Knowing your audience is a must and creating a catchy title is the first part of drawing your reader in.

    Your main points should be in the first paragraph and then you can expand on them in following paragraphs leading your reader on with good subheadings.

    An idea that I came across the other day to keep your reader coming back for more is to mention at the bottom of the post what your next post will be about. That is only possible of course if you have already planned it out.
