Most blogs are dynamic, centered around a revolving door of topics, thoughts and ideas. It’s been suggested that readers appreciate a certain level of consistency, and most bloggers deliver that consistency in the timing or the subject matter of their postings. However, a new theory has emerged relating to consistency within posts. Would you format posts specifically based on their subject matter and furthermore, would you use a template for those formats?
Daily Blog Tips features a post specifically on this subject, geared towards increasing blogging productivity. While most of us aren’t looking to cut corners to increase our efficiency, but we are interested in making our posts more digestible for our readers.
Helpful tips for creating more consistent, digestible content:
- Use bullet points for easier understanding.
- Use shorter, more focused paragraphs.
- Format product reviews similarly, so readers know where to look for essential information, such as price, availability and your final opinion.
- Similar to writing a newspaper article, place all imperative information at the top of the post. This is especially imperative for those who use partial RSS feeds.
How do you make your posts easier for your readers to understand? Would you consider using a pre-formatted blogging template?
