Blogging has a million moving parts. As if coming up with interesting story angles and writing compelling content weren’t enough, bloggers are also forced to be designers, marketers, public relations pros, metric analysts and more. That’s a lot of hats.
The one item that often gets lost in the shuffle is SEO. Many bloggers add in a few strong keywords and move on to the next post. Guilty as charged.

I love writing. I always did and always will. But here’s the catch – there’s no guarantee that if you love something, you’ll automatically be good at it. Just take a look at your cousin who just won’t stop singing… That’s another story, though.

On his blog, Brian shares his insights about much- needed blogging skills, writing great articles, completely removing writer’s block, creating attention-grasping pieces of content and the best ways to make blogs kick butt.

If you have trouble writing this kind of headline, itâ€™s a sure sign you need to think a bit more about your product or service.
If you, like me and so many many others, have trouble coming up with the best headlines from time to time, or just want some tips on how to give your headlines a little extra something, check out the full list on CopyBlogger.com.
