Welcome, you’re now part of our growing community. We’re pleased you’ve decided to blog for runnerscave.com. It may seem like a daunting task at first, don’t panic! You can blog as often or as little as you’d like, we’re just happy you’re here. Writing a blog post is different to writing academically or for business. To get you started we’ve put together this blogging guide of things we look for in an excellent blog post, so let’s get started.
Give your blog post a good title. Avoid title’s that are regarded as ‘click-bait,’ i.e., designed to hook the reader sensationally without really being true or about the article you have written.
Remember to include subtitles in each section of your article. Each section should ideally be no more than 300 words in length.
We like all our posts to be over 500 words in length as we find our readers like this length.
You don’t have to supply pictures with your post as we can source these for you. If you do supply images you must follow these five steps; You need to make sure that you’re entirely above the law regarding using images in your blog posts
- Assume that the images you are using are protected.
- Read the fine print when it comes to sites that say their pictures are “Royalty-Free” or “Copyright-Free” – better to err on the side of caution.
- When in doubt you should merely seek permission if you can.
Try to restrict your sentence length to no more than 20 words. In general, only 25% of your blog post sentences should exceed 20 words.
