Therefore, those who wish to improve their blogging skills need to consider how to write effective posts. What makes an effective post?  (See some suggestions at Nine signs of an effective post)

Choose one of the following and write a blog post to share:-

  2. Five steps to an effective blog post (or choose your number of steps)
