THOUGHTS I HAVE WHILE WRITING A BLOG POST!

Hey everyone! Hoping and praying that everyone had a wonderful week. Today’s post was a lot of fun to write, I think it’s going to be a very relatable one for bloggers who are reading it! Drafting up a blog post is no easy task, from the thought process to clicking that schedule button, it requires plenty of thinking and planning. From grammar checks to checking out spellings to designing featured images, blogging I must say is no joke. Here are thoughts I have while writing a blog post:

WILL MY READERS LIKE THIS TOPIC?

All the categories that I have posts on!

I like to plan out most of my content ahead, just because it’s soo much easier and I don’t exactly have to panic last minute. Nevertheless, when I am working on a blog post I can’t help but ponder on whether my viewers would like the particular topic I’ve chosen, will they like the content, do they like my writing style? I have way too many questions, in that tiny head of mine. I have seen certain topics perform better than others. Posts with regards to tips, recipes, or blogger shoutouts always perform better.

EH, IS THAT WORD CORRECT, DOES IT EXIST?

For some weird reason, I like making up words, but then with blogging, it doesn’t work all the time, I need to stick to a more universally understood language.

IS THE TITLE INTERESTING ENOUGH?

A few titles I like.

Titles are IMPORTANT. They play a huge role in encouraging people to click on your post and read it. Typing in an appropriate title is not something I take lightly, I think about it a lot. And here on BrainStorms, we don’t encourage clickbait, it’s against the rule. Personally, I hate it when people do that, it’s annoying.

SO AFTER THIS, I NEED TO WORK ON THE DESIGN

Canva Designs!

I love designing. Blogging has helped me soo much with improving on my designing skills, before I started blogging I’ve always wanted to start digital designing but I needed that push. When I started up BrainStorms, it was a do-or-die situation. For this blog to look visually appealing I had to give digital designing a go. Canva came to my rescue with ready-made templates for inspiration to cute graphics, it was a good starter package.

I AM SOO EXCITED FOR THIS POST TO BE PUBLISHED! 

Out of the 120 posts I have published, trust me when I tell you that all 120 have had me excited. Every single 120 times I smashed that publish button, I have been excited. To be honest, people aren’t going to believe me when I tell them that, but it’s true, every post I tried my best and every post that is out there I am content with. Blogging is an art, where perfection doesn’t exist. 120 posts later I am still excited to see the reaction that people have to this post!

Right now I am thinking of the grammar and spellings that need to be looked into. I will read this post at least three times more, add in the featured image, date, tags, and category and I shall finally click schedule.

That’s a wrap for today’s post. Let me know on the thoughts you have while blogging, in the comment section down below! Bye!

  1. Nabeeha, I was hooked to this. Forget about me relating to this very much, the way you’ve written this down is just so fabulous. That’s what I love about reading your posts, they’re so simple, lucid yet so deep.
    Coming to the post, you aren’t the only one who makes up their own words πŸ˜‚ That designing point though, so true! I’ve grown to advise others about designing after starting blogging!
    I love whatever you write, each and every post that comes out is a blessing!

    1. Ooh, that’s something I constantly think about as well. My average number of words per post is around 600, and I think I personally prefer longer posts. But then I think my readers prefer shorter posts. It’s super confusing πŸ˜‚

  2. Oh yeah, titles are SUPER important, and we’ll all do ourselves a favour by worrying about it a little bit more. I’m guilty of posting random titles, but since it’s the first point of contact between a potential reader and your post, I’d say that it’s definitely worth the extra time crafting a good one. Anyway, thanks for this post!
