In order to stand alone in the crowd, it is necessary to think about the content you are going to create. That does not mean months, you can just jump off the cliff to know where you are heading to.
How your first blog post should be written?
Here are some things about you and your passion you should mention,

While telling them answer behind the reason you should include details like why should readers should visit your blog and what is there inside your blog post that is different from other bloggers.
If you give a clear perspective of these things, your audience will connect more and feel more bonded. It is a great way to ignite curiosity among readers and to make them visit more often.
Content on which your blogs would be:
This is similar to the above question that you should at least give a hint on what your other blogs would be.
You need not break the ice by telling them everything. Just tell them the category on which your blogs would be mostly covered and so on.
You can also inform your schedule of which days you will be posting your blogs. This helps the readers to engage in other activities and turn up during the scheduled time.
Do not forget to tell the type of audiences your blogs are targeting about. Are you writing blogs on education, health, lifestyle or nutrition?
Make sure you target the type of audience you are choosing for reading your blogs.

In today’s world of digital enhancements, it is very easy for the bloggers to connect with their social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
They are powerful tools to share your posts, remind your audience of your motto, connecting them through chats and live chats.
Proofread all your contents
As they say, first impression really makes the best impression. Make sure you emerge with a unique idea or make the content with your creative thoughts.
If it is same as every other blog, the audience will not show any interest then. Every writer must outline their content as a draft and start developing them. This helps them not to go beyond the topic.
After writing the most important work to be done is proofreading. Even a small grammar or spelling mistake can make them judge you in a negative way. Check for grammar mistakes and provide them unique content without plagiarism.
