IDENTIFYING BLOG POST TYPES -ACTIVITY 6

Identifying Blog Post Types

With reference to the infographic ‘Ultimate List of Blog Post Ideas’ (available in Moodle) and the related blog post – http://www.digitalmarketer.com/blog-post-ideas– locate 5 blog posts that match 5 different types.

Post a link to each of the posts in the Portfolio along with the name of the blog post type being used for each one.

QUOTE POST

People love quotes from influential people. Pull together quotes from multiple influencers across a specific topic to create a ‘quote post’. Again if applicable- be sure to notify those that you quote that you have included them in your post.

STORY POST

Create content that tells a story that would be entertaining to your market. Some blogs only produce this type of content and others create a series around this type of blog post.

HOW-TO-POST

RANT POST

The rant post shows your human side by revealing your passion and anger about a topic that is relevant to your audience. It’s not for everyone but the right blog and the right audience will respond well to a rant.

HOLIDAY POST

Some blogs go dormant on popular holidays while others use the opportunity to deliver well-wishes to their audience and display their humanity.
