How To Write Your First Blog Post
“What will I write about?” They ask many Blogger himself
“How will I come up with a good topic.” Writer’s block sets in at this point and for many, but really, it’s not a problem if you’re writing about something that you are passionate about it.
Ask your self why Are You Blogging :-
This is a really important questions. If you don’t know why you’re doing what you’re doing, they’ll have no reason to trust you.

Ask One thing yourself you should do when answering this question is to keep your audience in mind.

When To Publish Your Blog Posts
This is a bigger question than you think. The name of the game with posting is consistency. Do you post every hour or every day or every week?
You have to set a schedule and stick to it. If you’re going to make money at this, you need to have people constantly coming to your site to check out your content. It has to be new, constantly updating content. They aren’t going to be checking out your greatest hits, either. They want new, fresh content. It’s not going to help if you post ten times a day for a week and then don’t post again for another month. If you do that, you’ll come off as flakey to your readers and that’s just death to bloggers. You won’t get those readers back, and you won’t be generating any traffic or making any money, either.
But it’s not just readers that hate inconsistency and flakiness. Search engines hate it too.
You want to be on their good side, and you’ll need to be posting regularly. We’re talking at least once a week, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to manage that. The more posts the better, but don’t commit yourself to something you can’t deliver and end up flaking out. There’s plenty of scheduling software’s out there that can help you make sure you never miss a posting. BlogPress even allows you to schedule a post to go live at a certain date and time. So there’s no excuse to not be posting regularly!

Who Are You :-
You’ve just jumped into the online world, and no one knows anything about you. If I am supposed to trust you and bookmark your blog, then I will need to know who you are.
People want to connect with you on a deep level. Tell them:
- What have been your experiences in life?
- Is this your first blog?
- Who are you as a person, as a professional, as a blogger?
The more you tell about yourself, the more readers will get used to you, and the more they will trust you and want to hear what you have to say.
Not only should you use your words to talk about yourself, but you should also show some pictures.
Don’t just be “the strange man behind the keyboard”.
Having your own pictures on your own blog will show authenticity, and your readers will start to trust you.
Bottom line, tell (and show) your readers all they need to know about who you are. The more information you give, the easier it will be for readers to connect with you.
