Open your blog post with a bang

Copyblogger has a great post on how to grab readers attention on your blog posts. I know myself I read a paragraph, or two if the headline grabs me, and then switch off if it is not up to much. The main suggestions are:

  • 1. Ask a Question.
  • 2. Share an Anecdote or Quote
  • 3. Invoke the Mind’s Eye
  • 4. Use an Analogy, Metaphor or Simile
  • 5. Cite a Shocking Statistic
  • I am only starting out on this blogging game so I need every tip I can get. The site iteslf is great for bloggers and writers.
