What is a blog? It is a web page or website that has regularly added articles that are written in a conversational style on whatever topic you want to talk about.

How long should a blog post be? It depends on what you want to accomplish. If you want comments on your post, the shorter the better. If you want people to share your post? mid length is the best. Do you want more traffic to your site? If so, the longer the better.

Do you want to allow people to share your blog post or comment on your blog? YES and YES! People sharing your posts, means more opportunity to drive traffic to your website and/or Etsy site.

How do you start writing a blog post?

  1. First and foremost you need a topic. This will give you the direction for the piece you are writing about. For instance, it could be a review about crochet hooks or knitting needles, a new book you purchased, or a project you are working on.
  2. Your blog post should have an introduction to introduce your topic. Next, the body of the blog l inform your reader. Include images to give it a visual interest. The last step is the conclusion of your blog post. The conclusion can be as simple as asking a question to get your readers to engage with you.

Be sure to break up your information in easy to read paragraphs. Make it a conversation instead of “talking at” your reader.

So, what is your first blog post going to be about?
