To write a column or an article is not easy task but it is within everyone’s grasp – if you know the right techniques. It is a mechanical process that everyone can master if you use the right ingredients. In my experience as a blogger, I found some interesting things needed to improve with my blogging hobby. The following are some of the interesting points I found that value an article or a column and I would like to share them here.
Title Of The Article or a Column
The title of the article should be an attention grabbing or a descriptive one. Also it can be in a form of a question.
Introduction of The Article
The introduction of the article should reveal the most interesting and most highlighted points about the article’s contents.
What Attract More Readership?
Images, photos and videos included in the article can help attract more visitors and readers. They are available in the internet though it is better if you owned them. However, they are not yet allowed at ExpertsColumn. Wish one day the site will allow them.
The Importance of Tags and other Keywords
Some of us write their blog articles without considering the importance of tags. Tag is a word or group of words that suggests about a column or article and when a surfer hit that word during his search it will lead him to a particular column or article. Sometimes other writers use the titles of their articles as tags.
The Importance of Backlinks
I learned that not just any back link will do. Only those from sites with relevant topics or subjects get counted. So if you wanted to apply backlinks on your article sharing - if you can avoid do not use click here use text words.
Nobody Is Perfect
Article should not contain a bunch of wrong spellings, punctuations and grammar errors. Sometimes we overlooked of them. Of course, nobody is perfect here. However, we can avoid them.
Inject Honesty And love
Lying here is a sin and a crime. So before writing your article, you would have to gather information that will support your article and investigate them before hand for their validity.
Avoid Writing Long Article
If your article is long write it by parts. The best length of an article that people read mostly during surfing the net ranges from 200, 300 to 500 words or a 5 minutes slot.
The Importance of 5Ws When Writing Article
The article should answers the 5Ws: Who, What, Why, When and Where - before you blog it. This is a basic formula that needs attention!

My favorite Saying: “Dream Big and don’t stop without giving it a chance to come true.” I am a father of 3 for 25 years, OFW for 17 years, a Blogger, sometimes a Poet, Self-motivated and Professional by experience. You can call me Paul or Pruel. I am friendly animal but can kick you off when it is needed. LOL. I have no specific areas where my writing will focus on. I write any subject that interests me under the merciless sun.
