How To Write A Blog Post in 30 Minutes or Less

Don’t have the time to express your thoughts and opinions on the web? Supervisor on your tail? Online blog getting old? Losing readers? Here’s your go-to guide on how to write a blog in 30 minutes or less (timer starts now!)

1. Smother pig’s blood all over your body and jump into shark infested waters

AKA write a title that gets people’s attention! Engage people in their curiosity or anger or whatever! Say something that catches their eye, peaks their interest, makes them feel or want to know more, and make them click! If you’re having trouble thinking of anything, make a how-to guide or allude to a list like this. They’re easy to read, easy to write, and don’t take very much time at all to create.

2. Write about stuff you actually care about

When you care about what you’re saying, writing a blog becomes much easier…and thus less time consuming. Don’t be afraid to talk about how you feel or engage with your emotions on a particular subject–regardless of what they are (perhaps you are feeling sassy like me!)

3. Address your audience

Who is your audience and why should they care about what you have to say? This is one of the most important questions to ask yourself. When you know who you’re writing to, it becomes easier and faster to write. For example, if your audience is a lot of stymied mid-20s girls confused about when, where, or how to blog post, creating a blog post like this would likely be good and engaging!


4. Add a picture

Some people just don’t like words nowadays so add a picture to take up space and engage with those viewers! It’s easy and fast. Plus, let’s face it, pictures are so darn cool. I’m including one of me writing this blog post (Thanks, Sarah!)

5. Don’t write too much

And don’t repeat yourself or use words over and over again unless you’re really trying to stick something with your readers. Notice how I kept using the word “engage”? Yeah. One of the best ways to save on time is to limit how long your blog post is. Keep it short ‘n sweet.


Hope I’ve engaged you for a little while! Hollaback at yo’ girl!

  1. So, this is a cute literary trick but I think I might have liked it better if there was more of you in it . . . why were you blocked? What were you avoiding writing about? Was this really that much easier than writing a post more closely related to you and your experiences this past week? The picture was good though – I think I just wanted to you to “engage” with your readers a little more.

  2. Thanks for the responses!

    I wasn’t blocked this week or avoiding writing about anything; rather, I was speaking directly to my experiences–although perhaps unknowingly to some of my readers. This post was a combination of typing out some things we learned in a blogging session and a response to a miscommunication between the moxies and our supervision–we were pretty confused about when to blog post and whose blog posts were due when! I volunteered to contribute this week while we figured out the schedule for the rest of the summer, but that meant that I only had a few minutes to think through a write a blog post. Thus, this came into creation!

    I didn’t let my outside readers in on the secret, but my fellow moxies, also confused and overwhelmed with blogging, got the joke! But no worries, I’ll be sure to ‘engage’ more in the future!


  3. THIS is the cool stuff. When, through some interaction between you and us, your readers, we learn more about each other. THis turns the whole thing into something valuable for me. I too, use my blog to work out my thinking… and remembering that as I read here again, I think — hm, how many times have MY readers had the same experience.

    There is something really useful about giving each other clues and making the layer of thinking UNDER the blog post a bit more transparent, eh?

    Thanks for returning to reply to our comments…. Maya, that is the difference between writing and engaging! Brava!
