Draft your Small Business blog post

Okay, so far, we discussed in detail what your blog post should be like and what all things make a great blog post.


Now, it’s time to draft a post on the site; finally, you need your WordPress dashboard from the right side menu, click on Post and edit further. 


You will generally have these editing tools:

  • Gutenburg
  • Elementor (To be installed as a plugin)


I highly recommend using Elementor or Elementor Pro for the task. It makes the process so much simpler and faster. In addition, I have personally experienced the change.


Why Elementor? 


Well, that’s because it comes with the following:

  • Drag-and-drop page builder
  • Responsive design
  • Pre-designed templates and blocks
  • Custom widgets
  • Pop-up builder
  • Custom fonts
  • Advanced design control
  • Custom CSS

How to edit the article and Publish using Elementor

Log in to your WordPress dashboard and create a new post. From the options available, select the Gutenberg or Elementor editor. Next, choose a layout and design for your seat by either setting pre-designed templates or creating your form using the block editor or widgets in Elementor.


As you move on to adding content to your post, use the blocks or widgets provided by the editor to include text, images, videos, and other multimedia elements. Additionally, use the formatting options offered by the editor to style your text and make it more visually appealing.


Furthermore, take advantage of the SEO options provided by the editor to optimize your post for search engines. This may include adding meta tags, keywords, and other SEO-related details. Finally, preview your placement before publishing to ensure everything looks good and the content is readable.


Finally, once satisfied with your post, hit the publish button and share it on your social media platforms to drive traffic to your blog. 


Remember, you can always edit your post after publishing, so don’t hesitate to make changes as you go along. And make sure to keep an eye on your website analytics to see which pages are getting the most traffic and optimize your blog accordingly.


Cool, so you drafted your first blog; now click on the ‘Publish‘ button below your screen, where you were crafting your content. 


Note: Your job does not end with just publishing articles. Make sure to keep updating your articles from time to time for better Google rankings.


Hope you have not missed these in your business blog? 

Besides posting content regularly on your blog, there are a few things that you need to take care of hand such as –


  • Setting Up your Gravatar account
  • Setting up Writers / Users (Team)
  • Enabling Comments
  • Adding Pages, Categories, and Posts to the Menu
  • Including a Call to Action
  • Offering newsletters
  • Making Social Channel Links
  • Enabling sharing Plugins


In closing, embarking on the journey of writing your first blog article is like taking your first steps on a new path. It may be uncertain and intimidating at first, but with a clear destination in mind, a passion for your chosen topic, and a willingness to experiment, you will find your footing and begin to soar. 

Your words have the power to inspire, educate, and entertain, so let your unique voice shine through and capture the hearts and minds of your readers.

Remember, every great story has a beginning, and yours starts now. Happy blogging and let the creativity flow! And If Step 4 is all clear, you can move on to the next article of this series How to bring traffic to your blog (Step 5).

A. Yes, you can write blog posts in whatever language you want. Blogging in your native language can narrow down your competition so that it can be a good idea for you. You will have to select your preferred language from the Settings page in the WordPress admin area and choose themes and plugins accordingly.

A. Yes, if you already have a blog and want to switch your blog platform, you can easily do it on WordPress if you have already installed WordPress with domain and hosting.

A. No, that’s not mandatory. Of course, if you have programming or coding knowledge, that’s a plus point, but blogging has to do more with your content than merely your site.

You can choose an all-in-one platform such as WordPress and a theme like Astra or newspaper, and there you go, you can design your blog with drag-and-drop options.
