3

Previously, we discussed five platforms which you can use to host your blog. Now, it’s time to discuss the different kinds of blogs you can do.

Variety in blog posts is important. It makes your dashboard look dynamic and gives your readers something to look forward to. You can choose to follow a weekly or monthly blogging schedule, or you can keep it sporadic.

The goal of a blog should be to impart some form of knowledge, to drive traffic, to invite new subscribers, or to influence its audience. Different blogs are able to do any or a combination of these things.

To give you an idea of what type of content to create, here is a list of different kinds of blogs.

Introductory Post

Self-explanatory. The introductory post is ideally the first post on your blog. Here you introduce yourself, the purpose of your blog, and what readers and followers can expect from it. You can go as far as to tell them about yourself and your experiences and get started with your actual blog content.

How-To Blogs

How-To’s or Tutorials are one of the most traffic-driving kinds of blogs, simply because “how to” is one of the most searched terms on the Internet. If you know how to do something, and it’s something relevant to your entire blog’s purpose, then you can post about it.

Listicles

Listicles, or list articles, are another popular form of blog post. This is because they’re very easy to read. Depending on your and your blogs personality, this can be very humorous or very serious lists.

Resource Post

A resource post is a collection of links to online resources such as tips, apps, files, or other webpages that your readers may find useful. The resource post is another traffic-driving post as it collates an entire archive of information on one category into a single post.

Industry News

If your blog is catered to a specific industry, posting occasional industry news will be beneficial for you. Search engines may pick up your website when someone searches for a specific piece of news. Moreover, having factual posts increases your credibility and makes your blog more professional.

Media Post

A media post is a blog post containing anything else other than text. That means pictures, photo sets, videos, and audio. Although your text posts may contain other media every once in a while, having media posts will make you blog homepage more visually interesting. It disrupts from the otherwise solid blocks of text.

Travelogue

If you go on a trip, whether it’s a vacation or an event, you can write about it. Other people who are interested to know about a place or an event will be looking for posts like travelogues as references to know what to do and what to expect.

Cheat sheets and checklists

Similar to how-to blogs, cheat sheets and checklists are things that people constantly search for online. If your blog is connected to your expertise or experiences of something, then this is a type of post you can do.

Reviews

There are so many things you can review: products, services, television shows, films, records, restaurants, performers, events, the list goes on. Reviews are valuable as they provide feedback for the source, and it saves the public a lot of time. This kind of post can benefit you too. People might start giving you free stuff for you to review.

Opinion Blogs

Saying your opinion on something is a gateway to interact with the public. It also lets people know a more personal side of you and makes you more relatable to them. The pitfall of opinion blogs is that they can cause others to lash out, especially if you don’t share their opinion.
