We’ve discussed already several factors that will affect your blog and slowly but surely we can do this.
Another thing you have to consider is your target audience, you already knew what to do prior to conveying it to the world but knowing who to talk to is another story to cover up.
Your target audience must be between let’s say 16 since I knew by that age some teenagers would discuss about their love life, crush and things alike and ranging to let’s say 50 for elders who talks about parenting, life and struggles and so.
But if you would discuss about Gaming then your target audience will be narrowed down to males in majority who loves gaming of course, but then you still have to narrow it down to either Desktop gaming, Online Gaming, Consoles etc.
Therefore, if you want to create a blog for specific people; think like them, place your self on to their shoe.

Have you ever tried to speak in public but you can’t keep track on what you are trying to convey? As if your brain is overflowing with ideas so your words are mixed up and ended up as a failure?
The same thing goes to writing, when writing a content or Blog, see to it you are still within the scope of your topic and the whole content should not go beyond the supposed discussion.
Regardless of what topic you will be creating, there are three points you need to consider in delivering your thoughts. And these are the ABCs of Blogging.
A for Attention:
This portion is the opening of your content. In other writing you may compare this to an introduction. You may start this portion with a background on what you’re trying to convey regarding your topic or you could also ask a question that will be answered on the later part of your content.
B for Body:
This area contains the entire content of your topic; you will be discussing your thought here which is relevant to your Attention. There are several types of content writing but let’s stick first on the basics so you could build your foundation before proceeding to succeeding topics.
NOTE: Your body needs to support the Attention you relayed and these needs to sustain the message from you Attention or answer the question which you asked from the beginning.
C for Conclusion:
Definitely, in this area, just like the word itself, it wraps up everything from start to finish. In here you’ll summarize your main points which you mentioned prior to conclusion. As such, keep these are brief and concise since this will be the ending.
In addition, parting with your readers could either encourage them to act according to your message or you could ask them again the same question you asked from the beginning of you content.
When starting to communicate with your readers; first and foremost is to build trust and credibility. And one way to get that credibility is by telling them something about yourself, skills you possess and anything about you as if selling yourself to the market.
Your reader’s impression reflects on how you present yourself through writing, which reflects your personality even from behind the monitor. That’s when credibility builds up.
If you want to strengthen the trust, the least you could do is state some personal thoughts about yourself, the concept in that is you trusted your readers with a bit of your personal stuff therefore in return they’ll pay you back the trust you gave them.
Since it is your debut in writing, there is no specific rule in creating this topic, just let everything flow out of your mind. Remember the two words, Trust and Credibility.
