How to write a blog post. (Who Wants To Blog Now?)

During my free time at work and this evening I goggled how to write a blog post.  I have a couple great ideas for my companion blog but I just don't know how to get started.

Here are a couple blogs I read on my way to  writing a great blog post:

I really liked how this post was laid out.  I even like the fill-in-the-bank template Corey gave me to use.  I know this will definitely get my brain flowing and fingers tapping.  Bookmarked this one!

How-to-write-a-good-blog-Post Fast
I am not the sharpest tool in the shed and after reading my comment and checking out the post you might agree.  I didn't quite get the bread analogy.  Maybe I read it too fast, or honestly, skimmed it too fast, but this one didn't do it for me. I got more out of the comments than the post.

I liked this post.  I like his example too.  I think I can do this!  I just need to not be so literary and more human.  I do think passion is important, but you need to be able to describe that passion, make it visible to the reader to be good at it.  Just my two cents.


Picture from Our Secret Blog Formula
This was a blog I wish I had read first.  It summarized the others nicely.  The best part of this blog is the 9. Go Back and Create Tweetables. 
Direct from the website:
"You will want to use, hashtags, and a dash of creativity. You can also use to keep everything 140 characters or less. Bitly allows us to track the number of clicks the link gets on Twitter."
I am definitely doing to try this idea!  Bookmarked this one!

I like when I can use a template to get me started.  Remember, I am a newbie at this blogging. Newbies like anything that will help them get started fast! The free download has the same steps, but the second page has the blank steps for you to fill in yourself.  Cool.

Blah blah blah with a report to download.  I don't like these type of blogs.  Basically propaganda for themselves.

Now this is exactly what the above blog should have been.  If I was going to repost my title, I would use "Who Wants To Blog Now?"  Definitely bookmarked this one!

The Number One blog for me was:
How to Write The Perfect Blog Post
I am a visual learner, not much for reading.  I think that is why I like blogs so much!  This is the best template I have seen so far.  I was going to post the image but it is wayyyy too large for this blog.  Trust me, it's good!

Keep in  mind this is not an exhaustive list.  I like that Google lets us know how many helpful articles we will find at the top of the lists. For this search I started on Page 1 of about 57,700,000 results.  Holy Cow!  So if I missed yours, please add it in the comments and what you can add to my blog writing experience.
