When Ann Tran – yes, the Ann Tran – asked me to share my thoughts about the ingredients that make up a great blog post, I had to clutch my electronic devices tighter than ever. She planned to ask several top freelance writers and bloggers about their recipe for making a winning blog post. Needless to say, I’m still so tickled that she counted me worthy of this group that I need to get The Prof and have a pillow fight to release some of this energy.
Do you ever wonder why one post resonates with an audience, while another flops? Some of the newbies I mentor tell me that the articles and stories they think will stir up high engagement end up with only their moms reading, while those they thought lacked panache ignite a comment party and sharing frenzy.
Do you need a few new ingredients to add to your writing recipe? Perhaps you need to scrap your old ways and start cooking from scratch. Check out what the other participants and I had to say here.
Oh, and come back here to add your own ingredients or entire recipes. Spread some of your glitter, so the other FWD readers can sparkle.
Follow Ann on Twitter: @AnnTran_ or just hang out on her website to see why she inspires the world through social media. Get ready to sparkle.
