To choose a topic, the most important step to write an effective blog. So
Once we know what the question wants from us, we can prepare accordingly. Now it’s time to choose the question we need to answer from a list of questions given in the Blog. We need to plan what should be the length of the answer, how many important points we need to answer. Do we need to give examples of every question? How many marks we need to target or we must target?
Make a timeline
Till now, we know what is been asked and what we need to deliver. Now we should start by making a timeline. This timeline must contain the following things:
Prepare a proper schedule for each and every task like research, writing, presentation, etc. and make sure to finalize without missing deadline,
List of references for each and every task. Do not forget to mention the type and length of the content we need from each reference.
Resources to be added
We should include various resources like images, info-graphics, facts, or even videos for effective blog
One of the most common mistakes students commit while doing research is when they search for answers on Google, they take references from only the first or maximum top 2 links. But the research should be carried in a way that a student must go through all links on the first page at least once. Because of the fact that only 20% of articles or publications have content with in-depth information on the subject.
Selection and Drafting
The process of selecting the content which should be included in the answer from the resources shortlisted during research. Read the selected content carefully before preparing the draft. After reading the content, we need to ask ourselves if it answers all the questions we planned in step 1 & 2, If yes, We must start making our first draft. If no, we need to do a bit more research.
Check & Edit
Once we have made our first draft, we need to check errors, grammatical mistakes, spellings, etc. Highlight all the edits required and rectify them.
After rectification of errors, we can finalize the draft by adding resource images, facts, citations, data, and infographics, or even videos. This makes our Blog look more authentic, unique, and correct.
