7 Cool Advices On How To Make Your Blog Readable !

April 24, 2013 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Writing Tips

Posts ideas and ways to promote your blog can be called a good foundation for success. However, this does not negate the importance of your blog content’s quality, because you probably want readers to come back to your blog again and again. And if the information provided on your web page is not interesting for them, they will unlikely visit your blog again.
It’s good to keep a few good ideas for blog posts in stock. However, if the implementation of these ideas is lame, all of them are worthless. Good text writing, as well as creative writing help, is a matter of practice. Here are some simple blogging tips to make your posts more attractive to readers, and your blog – more readable. Let’s use blogging in full!

  1. Organize your post right

Introduction, main part and conclusion – these boring words will certainly remind your teacher’s instructions who tormented you with compositions at school. But she was right actually, you know. Describe briefly the main idea in the introduction, open it in the main body and formulate your thoughts in the conclusion. The audience will be very grateful to you. You will agree that it’s not a very pleasant experience to read someone’s confused and unclear thoughts, won’t you?

  1. Use subtitles

A subtitle is your chance to insert keywords into your text once again. In addition, you give a reader the opportunity to get an idea of the text by running through its subtitles. Certainly, there will be some busy people among your blog’s visitors who will definitely appreciate this.

  1. Make your text connected

Do not try to cram too much information into one paragraph, one idea is enough for it. Do not jump from fifth to tenth. Try to make your arguments logical and understandable.

  1. Use images

Of course, not every post can be illustrated. But try to use some images where it’s possible. They will make your posts more attractive to a reader. If a text is long, you can insert a few images into it.

  1. Use less numbers and technical details

Do not greet a reader’s head with every detail you know about the subject, except those times when you’re writing for a narrow circle of specialists, who might be interested in it. Divide numbers and technical details evenly throughout the text, try to write it in plain English.

  1. Understand your blog audience

There is no need to explain readers that two and two make four, and that the Earth is round. The big chances are that someone had told them about this already. If you have some doubts and can’t immediately determine whether you need to explain this, imagine that you are writing a text for your friends. Will they understand it without any further explanation? – Excellent, there is no need to do that.

Do they need more explanations? – It’s even better, so, you can add them. When it’s too difficult for you to explain this or that detail, you can always provide a link to the resource where readers can find more information on their own.

  1. Do not use too keywords and irrelevant links

Your readers are probably not that stupid, and they can easily differ a text for people from a text for SEO. They will hardly thank you for links that lead to distant lands, and it’s unclear what a person should use them for.


The main thing is practice, and very soon you will write qualitative texts without thinking what you do right and wrong. But first, you may have to check how readable your posts are by proofreading and editing them again and again. But do not worry, all your efforts will be paid off: in the vast flow of information given today most readers will choose those sources which offer interesting and well-written texts.

    Hi Alex, great tips. It’s always good to care about our blog readers and making their stay on our blog more fun then we will have more success. This is why I always suggest that bloggers keep ads to a minimum.

    1. Alex Strike said on April 25, 2013 6:33 am:

      Yes.. I think that ads can be like a bomb for your blog, when people come to read something and the only thing they can see is bright and sparkling banners everywhere, it won’t work good))

  3. Ryan Biddulph said on April 24, 2013 3:05 pm:

    That keyword stuffing bit kills your post. Solid tips here Alex. Practice too. By writing each day your skills improve.


    1. Alex Strike said on April 25, 2013 6:36 am:

      Thank you Ryan!

      As a blog reader, I don’t like seeing too many keywords and links in one article, especially if they are used randomly and don’t fit the topic itself. I am glad you find my post useful.


  4. Nirmala said on April 24, 2013 4:01 pm:

    Agree with your points.

    Hope these are the easy executable tips for all the bloggers.

    Am doing almost all the things which you’ve listed here to make my blog posts readable.

    Thanks for sharing the needful information!

    1. Alex Strike said on April 25, 2013 6:38 am:

      You are more than welcome Nirmala!

      I understand that experienced bloggers know and follow my tips all the time, but if you are a newbie, it would be quite useful to read and remember the information given.

      Have a nice day! And good luck with you blog!

  5. Harleena Singh said on April 24, 2013 4:35 pm:

    Hi Alex and Anis,

    These are wonderful tips to make our blogs readable that each one needs to follow. 🙂

    I would also like to add that write in your own voice and for your audience, and not for the search engines. Use simple words and language that even a sixth grade student can understand, even if you have mastered in English because you are writing for others – not yourself.

    Also, don’t forget to use small sentences and give breaks in-between your posts. Take care of your typos, grammar, formatting etc. All of this makes your post a pleasure to read and would get your readers visit your blog for more 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Have a nice week, both of you 🙂

    1. Alex Strike said on April 25, 2013 6:41 am:

      Thank you Harleena!

      Yes, I totally agree with you that simple language works perfect too. People on the Internet don’t like all these academic stuff))) They come to read interesting info and relax. Thank you for sharing some more advice with Emitez readers!


  6. Jennifer Cunningham said on April 25, 2013 12:16 am:

    Hi Alex.
    Good points about using titles and subtitles. You are right about not using too many ideas in one post. There’s a blogger that I like but whenever I go to that website I have a headache. There are too many ideas and steps in one post to implement. So I come away feeling like I didn’t complete the job.

    1. Alex Strike said on April 25, 2013 11:24 am:

      Yes Jennifer, I see your point here. When I read a blog post, I wanna read about something particular… and there is no need to mix 10 ideas in one article, why not to qrite 10 different but really interesting and useful article, and post them one by one?


  7. Alex Strike said on April 25, 2013 6:31 am:

    Yes, people come to your blog to find and read interesting information, so, you should remember that first of all you write it for them, not for search engines. That is why your readers wil lreally appreciate if you make your blog post as much readable as possible.

  8. Alex Strike said on April 25, 2013 6:34 am:

    You are welcome, my friend!

    This post may seem too obvious for some experienced bloggers, but I think that newbies should remember such small details that can help them organize their blog posts right.

    All the best!

  9. Alex Strike said on April 25, 2013 11:25 am:

    You are welcome, Joseph!

    Glad to know that you find this info useful =)

  10. Thejas Kamath said on April 26, 2013 10:55 am:

    Hey Alex,

    I completely agree with all your points specially using images. I love to read articles with many images.
    Good to see you here.

    1. Alex Strike said on April 26, 2013 3:01 pm:

      Hello Thejas!

      Thank you for your comment! As for me, I prefer reading articles with images too, becuase they look better and more interesting with them. We, people, love some visual effects, and that is why pictures work like a magic here) When you see an article with beutiful picture, you want to read about what they describe – it’s a good way to make your blog’s article more attractive for readers))


  11. Sarvesh Darak said on April 26, 2013 4:20 pm:

    Excellent post!

    The first step should be using of some cool images likely the seductive images will be really helpful to gain the readers attention towards our blog.

    thanks for the tips.

    1. Alex Strike said on April 30, 2013 6:12 am:

      Thank you Sarvesh!

      Yes, images attract readers’ attention at once, so, I totally agree with you here! As a reader, I always pay attention to images, and try to guess what I wil lbe writing about in the article itself.

      All the best!

  12. Hicham said on May 3, 2013 7:59 pm:

    These tips are intended to make the post readable. To make the whole blog readable we have also to pay attention to the organisation of the template we’re using, choose the right placement, use less pop-ups, use different menus, … The point is to make the blog user friendly.

    1. Alex Strike said on May 7, 2013 7:01 am:

      Agree with you. I just wanted to point out that the content is the king of every blog anyway, because people come to see and read interesting and useful information. But certainly, the general view and organization of your blog plays the important role as well, because the first thing a person sees when he opens your blog is its look of course))

  13. piyush said on May 6, 2013 10:19 am:

    yaa dear i agree with you….
    and it is such a good info to make your blog popular but i like to put picture in blob.. it is such a great idea

    1. Alex Strike said on May 7, 2013 7:10 am:

      Yes, being not just a blogger but a reader as well, I must admit that pics in blobs attract my attention too)) So, why not to use them? ))


  14. Alex Strike said on May 7, 2013 6:58 am:

    You are always welcome, Bashir!

    Glad to know that you find my points valuable. I hope they can help some bloggers, especially newbies, make their content better!


  15. Alex Strike said on May 7, 2013 7:04 am:

    Thanks Rajesh!

    Unfortunately, some bloggers don’t think they write for readers, and they try to make their blog more Google-friendly, so users don’t find it attractive when they visit and see nothing but many ads and links. We should never forget about our readers if we want to become successful bloggers.

  16. Alex Strike said on May 7, 2013 7:05 am:

    Hello Ashutosh!

    I am happy to know that my article helped you some way! Good luck with your blog, I am sure you’ll do your best to make it really successful and interesting for readers!


  17. Alex Strike said on May 7, 2013 7:08 am:

    Yes, images are able to attract a reader at once and give him an understanding of what info he will find in the post.

    Hello there!

    Thank you for such a positive comment! It’s very pleasant to me, as an author of this post, to hear that! I hope these advice can really help bloggers make their websites better.


  24. James McAllister said on June 15, 2013 6:43 pm:

    I especially agree with the idea to use subtitles. People are more impatient than ever while reading articles online, so by using subtitles, you make it easy for readers to skim over your article, and read the sections that appeal to them the most.

  25. yogesh pant said on July 9, 2013 5:17 am:

    Nice article dude…
    using the different styles in the article itself as that of underlining, italicizing and bolding the keywords also helps. To increase the readability, you should divide the article into various paragraphs.

  26. Trisha Agarwal said on July 18, 2013 9:00 am:

    Blog posts are awesome because they can still be relevant even years from now. Thanks for sharing this post.

    1. Alex Strike said on July 18, 2013 10:30 am:

      Hello Trisha!

      Thanks for passing by and stop here)) You are always welcome, and I hope that my post was interesting and useful for you to read!

      Alex S.

  27. Alex Strike said on August 21, 2013 1:52 pm:

    Thank you, everyone! I really appreciate all your comments! As far as I see, some commentators deleted their comments (or maybe administrators did that)))) Anyway, I am glad that my article gets such an active feedback from all of you!


  28. Ambika Choudhary Mahajan said on September 5, 2013 2:41 pm:

    Thats a nice post!!
    Most people and bloggers dont seem to realize the importance of writing smaller paragraphs.
    I always keep telling my friends and fellow bloggers to limit an ideal paragraph to 3-4 sentences.

  29. Alex Strike said on September 12, 2013 6:46 am:

    Hello guys!

    As far as I can see, the discussion of my post becomes somwthing really weird)) We speak about everything, but not the article itself/ Lol! But this is great! Thank you, Ambika, for your comment as well, and I agree with you as for small paragraphs! Internet users just don’t like reading a lot of info designed in a way they can’t see where is the point. The tryth is, users do not read posts actually. They SCAN them to see if there is the info they needed. if they find it – they continue reading. So, we should build our posts in a way they could see at once what they would find in the article.

    Have a nice day you all!


  30. Alex Strike said on September 16, 2013 7:19 am:

    total war rome 2, thank you very much)) It’s pleasant to hear such compliments from readers)) I will try hard to improve my blogging skills anyway))

  31. Alex Strike said on October 8, 2013 7:07 am:

    Hello Shilpa and Thomas!

    Thank you very much for your comments and kind words! I am glad to know that you find my advice useful.


  32. Uttoran Sen said on November 13, 2013 10:06 am:

    excellent article,
    format is the most important thing – if the post is not broken down into points and sub-heading, it becomes almost impossible to read…

    along with that, would also suggest proof-reading – too many spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes can turn away the readers.
