I have to admit when I first starting blogging it was to fuel the inner writer from within. See I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. When I was little it was short little stories, poems and even commercials (weird I know). Then as I got older I picked up a screenwriting book and wrote my first screenplay in high school. I never showed it to anyone and never will. I picked it up once a few years back and it was god awful. But I was a kid and new at it – when is anyone perfect the first time around, right?
So fast forward to the present I’ve put my screenwriting on the backburner for now and I’ve picked up authoring my blog BizzieMommy.com and writing as the digital editor on LifetimeMoms.com. When I first started blogging the Hubs (oh he’s an SEO guy) would constantly get after me about SEO and keywords and proper titles. He didn’t understand why I would take so much time writing it if nobody was going to see it. So needless to say I’ve been working hard to make sure my posts are relevant to the time, seo friendly, keyword relevant and compelling. And that is a lot to remember just for one post.
Luckily Darren Rowse of ProBlogger has come up with a solution to help you remember all the important best practices in blog writing. The Copywriting Scorecard for Bloggers and it just popped up in my inbox this morning!
The Copywriting Scorecard for Bloggers is a downloadable eBook providing a list of recommendations to follow, as well as pitfalls to avoid, as you write that next blog post. It’s a checklist of things that are common in most great copywriting and mistakes that are commonly found in ineffective copy.
It’s a great tool to quickly identify things you can improve to help your post reach its full potential before you hit Publish.
Now if I could just have someone go through all 892 posts on BizzieMommy.com and score and rework them…
The Copywriting Scorecard for Bloggers will help you write compelling, usable, grammatically correct and search engine friendly copy for you blog. – Sounds good to me!
