How to write a blog post


Hi again! Here you have a brief summary of what we discussed last Tuesday. In order to write a nice blog post, you need to have in mind the following aspects:

  1. Content
    • Straight to the point
    • Clear and easy to follow
    • Original (if possible), attractive, fun
    • Always quote your sources
    • Support your text with a picture (To find free photos for your blog posts, you can try this search engine. For example, the photo of this post was taken by soopahtoe).
  2. Structure
    • Remember to include a catchy headline
    • Several paragraphs (not too many, but not a single paragraph either)
    • May use bullet points for lists
    • Add tags at the end
    • Insert links whenever appropriate
    • Max. 250 words!
