So you’ve finally decided to start a blog…
You want a life where no one will have the right to tell you what to do, how to do it, and when to do it.
That’s what we all want, right?
And the truth is that blogging can afford us such freedoms and luxuries.
But in order to be able to get there, we need to make sure that what we’re doing is done right.
So after you’ve set up your blog, you’ll need to start writing posts.
Your first blog post will serve as the primary basis of your blogging business. Get it wrong and you’re doomed to fail. But if you get it right, you’ll lay the proper foundation for success.
It doesn’t have to be anything mind-blowing, but you want your first set of visitors to come back to your blog after reading your first article.
You want to captivate them so much that they can’t help but tell their friends about this excellent blog they’ve just discovered (yours).
Most people don’t worry too much about this in the beginning. After installing WordPress, all most bloggers want to do is to publish anything just to let the world know that they’re online.
Sorry, it does not work like that.
The brutal truth is that if you fail to capture your first visitors’ interest at a deep level with your first article, you will lose them forever.
So with that scary truth bomb out of the way, let’s look at how to write a great first blog post.
