A guide to writing a great blog

5 simple steps to write a great blog post

  1. Choose a topic or event that you or others have enjoyed through GirlGuiding
    The most popular posts address a compelling topic that will appeal to other members of GirlGuiding and prospective members.

  2. Come up with a great title
    Titles are a great way to attract readers!  You could come up with a catchy title that will hook readers and make them want to read your article.  If you’re struggling, no problem!  The title can be an informative sentence/few words on the topic you wish to write about.

  3. Keep it simple and use a clear layout 
    A blog post can be as long or short as you’d like it to be.  The important part is to keep it simple and easy to read!  Consider outlining your post into a few main points that you want to share with the reader.  The most successful blogs have short paragraphs and are laid out in a clear and visually clean way to help readers follow along.

  4. Use photos and images
    This will help enhance your post and help bring it to life even more.

  5. Tell a story

    If you get stuck, don’t worry, we can all get ‘writer’s block!’  The best thing to do to start a blog post is to tell a story.
