Great tips! Not using jargon is crucial to attracting readers who are interested in a topic, but may not be familiar with the language.

MaryJo Wagner

Always check that your links work.

Cynthia Medina

Great checklist and it comes just in time as I was asked to write one for our bloggers.

Jean Marc Pellerin

Good Job. These are definitly the right strps to follow to publish successful business blog posts. Jargon is for specific jobs and should be left out, or fully explained within the article.

Great post! I love that you really emphasize being unique when you write your blog posts. It is so important to stand out in this day and age. Like, for instance, I know my audience is people who are looking for social media ADVICE, not social media news. So I don’t talk about the latest trends, platforms and changes on FB; I talk about how to improve your social media standing or little quirks within social media.

Bob Redington

Yes, it is very important to step back and look at your blog as if you were the reader. If you just came to that blog page, would YOU be interested? Wouldn't it be nice to work in your Pjs?

Suzanne Muusers

I am embarrassed to say that I have found spelling or grammar errors weeks or months later. How to avoid this? I think to read your post very slowly before publishing.

Melanie Kissell

Excellent checklist and a great reminder to not be overly anxious to hit the big "publish" button until you've checked and double-checked (and maybe even triple-checked!) your posts.

Also, it helps to keep in mind you're not in 7th grade grammar class anymore or 11th grade literature class, either. Blog posts are not essay assignments and people generally don't enjoy reading lengthy dissertations.

I've read mixed reviews about including images with your posts and I've visited lots of posts that are image-less. Personally, I favor using images and I think they add some interest, some color, and an extra layer to a post. It's a good idea to make sure you leave a little margin or white space around your image so it's not crammed right up against your text.

My favorite proofreading tip is one I got from my business communication professor: read everything out loud before you submit it.
This helps you check the flow and helps you to double check your work because your eyes can trick you into thinking there’s a word there, when it actually isn’t. When you read it out loud, you’re forcing your voice to read only what is on the page.

Great article! I’m printing this checklist and keeping it at my desk from now on.
