What Makes A Good Blog Post: Keeping Your Cool Parenting
Welcome to The Weekly Swipe: Super Sucky Parenting Blog Post
In this edition I’m looking at a blog post from Camilla Miller’s Keeping Your Cool Parenting website.
Praise-worthy because the top third of the blog post works really hard to:
1 - Hook the reader’s attention
2 - Get their engagement
3 - Build a connection
Open the screenshot so you can read for yourself, and see these 8 features in action:
1 - An attention-getting headline that works on three levels (confirmation, curiosity and a promise)
2 - A ‘yes, yes, yes’ introduction that encourages the reader to commit to the rest of the blog post
3 - A relatable personal story to build connection
4 - Examples to add value to the teaching
5 - Next steps so the engaged reader has more content options’
6 - Use of sub-headers to engage skim readers
7 - Sidebar intro to the author to build trust and credibility
8 - An irresistible email opt-in offer
