2. Blog Readers Love Storytelling

We are story addicts because they connect to our emotions and our brain cells. They are a powerful mode of communication. We use stories to live and relive the moments!

So why use story telling?

  • Stories increase credibility and clarity in the facts you write. That is the same purpose that testimonials achieve.
  • Stories make you bond with readers. This is because they involve emotions which make it hard to forget.
  • Stories are entertaining. People fancy entertainment. So share something fun, fascinating and outrageous.
  • Stories win the attention of your readers. Use them in your opening and you’ll draw their attention to the entire post.
  • Stories will inspire readers to take action. If you use a vivid story in your post that readers find interesting, they will hit the share button in no time. The same applies to a sales page where you want them to sign up for an offer or buy something.

3. Use more White Space

If you use huge blocks of 10 long sentences per paragraph, people will rarely read through. So, break your post into small paragraphs; even one-sentence paragraphs are acceptable.

When you write a short, engaging and value-packed paragraph, you’ll get more eyeballs on that paragraph and on the next one, till the end.

Create subheads to partition your content and tell your story. Also, play around with text size, fonts and bullet points.

Highlight some of the important words to ensure that your message stands out to grab the readers’ attention.

    Moreover, the story is not bad, but the chat is good. However, each blogger writing should be a matter of time, he noted that at least the value of whatever are written is complete. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for the suggestions! I just ran with the first and asked my audience what they would do with two more hours. We’ll see what type of engagement that gets. I want to make it a habit, maybe weekly, of asking my readers a question like that. Maybe they share in the comments, maybe it just lets them think introspectively. Either way is helpful to them, and that’s my goal. Thanks again for your post!
