Writing a blog according to the SUGID method is critical to success. By eliminating the drama often found in blogs, keeping to the facts helps people stay focused and will better ensure they will use your blog.
Steps to Take (8 Steps):
1. Select a category for your blog.
2. Title your blog. Be specific as it will help people searching for the right answer. “How to fold a queen-sized fitted sheet” is far better than “how to fold a fitted sheet.”
3. Add a short “quick description” that helps highlight the project and why you use the method you will list below.
4. (Optional) Add an image of the end product or of the problem you are solving for.
5. List all the tools required in the process of the project. More details the better; “6 Arrow 1-1/4 inch brad nails” is better than just “brad nails”. Leave a link to the tool on Amazon or other site so others can easily find what they need. Place the word “(optional)” after tools that better improve the project but are not required for completion.
6. List the steps required with the most detail possible. Not all people will understand the flow between steps. Eliminate any points of confusion and make it easy for newbies.
7. Place photographs between steps when applicable. Videos capturing the step by step process should be placed at the end.
8. Add a promo to your site or social media handle if applicable.
9. Add any additional information that people might want to know or should know at the end. Most people never read this so a SUGID blog places the fluff at the end.
10. Proof read
11. Email to SUGID.
