In this article, I am sharing 6+ Best Blog Post Formats for Your Blog Post. These popular blog formats help you to come up with different ideas for blog posts.

A blog is like a beast, does not matter how much content you publish, there is always scope to do more. Many times while publishing blog posts on the blog we run out of blog post ideas – just the content ideas but its presentation too.

Moreover, I would say different blog post formats can lead you to various content ideas as well.

Want to know? What I am talking about.

Read on.. it’s all here in following paragraphs.

When we publish the same format of blog posts that make our blog become monotonic and less interesting to the readers. If you can resonate with this situation, all you need is to bring variation to your blog post formats.

If you’re a blogger, you should follow other people’s content – you can do that by following good bloggers in your niche, by checking out platforms like Twitter, Quora, Reddit etc. or any other platform where people showcase their content.

Reading and participating on these sites is a great way of understanding what types of content readers find most interesting and worth sharing. But you don’t even have to look that far, a little bit of research into TechYag’s own popular posts will give you some insight into the kind of posts that are of most value to readers.

The Best Blog Post Formats for Your Next Blog Post

Next time you are stuck for ideas about how to write your blog post take inspiration from these popular blog post formats:

Best-of Lists

Put together a list of “best” or “top” items, products or services in your niche. This is a form of reviewing and sharing some of the best and most reliable products/services in your niche – and also helps to establish your expertise.

Resource lists

Consumers today have too much choice and too little time. Put your knowledge to use and compile a list of valuable resources (free resources are best) so that your readers can not only bookmark and refer to it but also save time trying to hunt for and compare opinions online.

Showcases

The internet is a big place, and it’s often hard to find high-quality examples of various types of work for learning and inspiration purposes.

Putting together a showcase of other people’s good work is a great way to inspire your readers and earn good karma not only from them but from those you recommend and link to.

Tutorials

Share your expertise with your readers and they will share your posts with the circle. Teach them how to accomplish tasks that may find complex by breaking them down into easy-to-follow steps. This is also good for search traffic because often people look for such tutorials and guides on search engines, and can find your blog in SERPs (Search Engines Result Pages.)

Answering Questions

Your readers can often have specific questions about your experiences or your niche topic. Answer those questions in the form of a blog post, so that one person’s question can help learn others as well.

Again, we often type questions we have into search engines like Google, and finding a match for that question is always a great relief and big help.

Tips Articles

A little obvious, yes, but tips are so popular that we couldn’t leave them off our list! Tips are common precisely because that’s what your readers often expect from you — they won’t always have questions to be answered, so it’s up to you to anticipate their needs and provide tips that can improve their routine tasks.

Blogs have evolved from individual “diaries” to resources full of learned, well-informed advice — so go ahead share your experiences and expertise, give your readers what they want.

Contests

Contests also make for popular and share-worthy posts. People not only participate in contests but tell their friends about it, and it’s a great way to get your readers involved more actively in your blog/website. It’s not about the prize; it’s about the fun of participation and a little bit of easygoing competition. Sharing with your readers doesn’t have to be limited to just words; if you are up for it, give contests a try.
