Welcome to the blogging world.
So you’ve decided to jump-start your blogging journey. Welcome again.
Blogging is full of opportunities to earn money if you have enthusiasm, willing to do hard work, and have some ability to communicate with real people.
Writing the first blog post is a little bit scary. Isn’t it?
For many, it is just like chatting with friends.
For most of us, it’s really a hard task. I know this. Because I was there.
If this is your situation take a deep breath. If needed drink some freshwater.
So, the question is how to write your first blog post?
After making a blog ready to publish posts most of us just start writing about the topic which we decided blogging about.
But, that isn’t a good strategy. You shouldn’t start writing about your blogging niche.
Instead, you should discuss some key points in your first blog post.
In this post, I’ll discuss seven must-have points and how to write them in your first blog post. Read on.
7 Must-Have Points In Your First Blog Post And How To Write Them
(This was actually my first post in this blog. I’m just republishing this with updated information.)
1. Who You Are
In your first blog post, you should write everything that your readers may want to know about you.
You are nobody in the blogging world at this moment. If you want me to make friendship, at least some connection with you then I would like to know the following about you…
- Who are you?
- How are you as a person, as a family man?
- What do you do in real life?
- What is your nature, are you friendly or moody.
Not necessary you share your personal secret life. You just share what requires to make a good relationship. You want to make a good relationship with your readers. Don’t you?
If you think it’ll be long enough to write in a post then you can create a separate About me page and link back it here.
Mine: As this is my first blog post I should also write about me.
I’m Liton Biswas, live in Chittagong, Bangladesh. Professionally I’m a civil engineer, working as a project manager in the building construction sector.
I’m a quick learner and eager to learn new things. I read books every day to meet this hunger of learning.
I don’t talk too much but listen to everyone attentively.

2. Why Are You In The Blogging World?
It makes sense.
Why are you in the blogging world?
What force or inspiration makes you jump into the blogging world?
At some point, readers want to know about these. So tell them.
How you came to the blogging world. Who inspires you to come to the blogging world. You can write about this in your about page and share a summary in your first blog post.
Mine: In 2011, I started a blog to keep my professional things in an online place. After some time, I’d inserted Adsense ads on that blog just for curiosity.
Months went away. One day, I got a message from my bank account that Google inc deposited about 200 US dollars in my bank account.
Although the blog isn’t created professionally yet paid me. Thus I realized that anyone can make money blogging. That time I started this blog to learn to blog professionally.
Once I started to blog professionally, I found that there are many directions and many ways to build a successful blogging business. And finding out the right way from these is just difficult and it can make a beginner overwhelming. So, I decided to find out the right way to build a successful blogging business and eliminate the blogging overwhelm of beginners.
And that is the inspirational force for me to jump into the blogging world.
3. What Is Your Blog Topic?
Tell your reader what you’re blogging about. The blog topic is called a niche in the blogging world.
Be specific about your blog niche.
What topic you are going to blog about?
How will you write about it?
Mine: My niche is BLOGGING. I’ll write everything about building a successful blogging business without being overwhelming for beginners.
I’ll write it in plain language and easily digestible way. So that anyone who is new in the blogging world can understand easily what to do and what not to do.
4. Who Can Be Benefited From Your Blog?
In your first blog post, you should clearly explain who are you writing for?
Who can be benefited from your blog?
Clearly tell your readers who should come back to your blog again and again?
Mine: Let me be straight forward.

Show them the way to subscribe to your blog.
- Email link
- Facebook page link
- Twitter link, etc.
Mine: Dear reader if you find my blog interesting or useful then you can come back again and again. For that:
6. How Can Your Readers Reach You Directly?
Trust is one of the most important assets in the blogging world. And if your reader can’t reach you to get answers to their questions they won’t trust you.
So give them an option to contact you personally.
You can make a separate contact page section and link it back here.
Mine: If you want to contact me personally you can contact me here. I’ll try my best to answer your question.
