Blogging just might be the hardest thing you’ll ever do. There are tons of blueprints available at your disposable but it’s really easy to get confused and just say forget this crap.

Create content in your original voice

Is creating content in your original voice that easy? YES! Remember that your reader is a person. Not some imaginary unicorn baby on the Internet. She (or he) is super smart. They’ve probably been reading the Internet just as long as you have. They might even be fellow writers and bloggers.

The easiest way to create content in your original voice is to have a conversation with your readers. Here’s the perfect post – whatever you have to say, say it bluntly (Ex Headline: Why Some People Will Never Get Out Of Debt), bring in your reader (use phrases like “imagine this” “it’s 1987 and you’re…) and then give your testimony, show lots of emotions and be truthful.

    Okay, for a moment there I thought my blog suck! I made it through however. Thank you for the opportunity to check myself. Short and pointed content. That could use a major overhaul. I feel like I have to put sooo much in my post but I will make some changes and see how it goes.

    Well thank you for these tips! I’ve started my blog a little over a month ago and even though I have a million and one things going on, I made a commitment to be on my blog weekly and I’m trying really hard to keep that promise. I think you have some very solid tips and being original/ using your own voice is extremely important.
