Tips for the Perfect Blog Post

Sharing with #SCBWIsocial

I’ve been studying blogging lately, and thought I’d share Derek Halpern’s easy reference “How to Write the Perfect Blog Post” with you. It’s okay, he gave me permission.

Not all blogs are alike – use what works for you.

I’ve personally struggled along the way. Has anyone else heard these voices: Is anyone reading this?  Who cares? Why am I doing this? I’ve concluded my approach to blogging NOW follows the way I accomplish most of what I do. I start with a basic plan; learn as much as I can; adjust and modify using what seems to work; learn from what doesn’t; and keep moving forward. Positively.

I consider an expert’s experience with 1,000,000 pageviews a day worthy of sharing with you.

So read on for the step-by-step guidance on the Perfect Blog Post (click to enlarge), from which I think any blogger or writer can learn AT LEAST one valuable tip.

Like this? Learn how to use psychology to get more traffic and sales with Social Triggers.

And just to personally follow Derek’s advice, here’s where I’ll ask you to subscribe in the sidebar to the right, if you’d like to see future blog posts and benefit from other lessons I’ve learned.  Hey, it’s free…just as is the “Leave a Comment” feature. Happy blogging!


  1. I’m going to use this! I always feel like nobody is reading my blog…ever! And personally, I think everyone should be interested in my new horse journey, right?

    I love the name of your blog….I’m a certified dog trainer and my dog blog is:

    • Thanks, Robin, and I’m glad you “believe in dogs.” I have two of those who keep me smiling daily. I wish you the best with Reason, and enjoyed your blog.

  2. Wow, wonderful blog structure! How long have you been running a blog for? you make running a blog look easy. The entire look of your web site is wonderful, neatly as} the content material!

    • Thank you for the kind words. I had to check to see how long I’ve been blogging — yikes — since Sep 2010. Still learning, but enjoying the education. Take care, and thanks for stopping by.
