Images are essential for enhancing your blog posts. Visual content is easy to understand and also is more memorable than textual content. With the right images, your content will be more appealing. The main problem that comes with adding images to posts is finding images, even though there are hundreds of websites selling graphics (or even giving them away for free). We cannot just use someone else’s images as it can create legal problems and using tools like Photoshop is not an easy task. When I started my blog, I started finding tools which let me create images for my posts. I had tried my hands at Photoshop and Corel Draw, but the only thing I know how to do is write (not draw). One day while creating a presentation, I found the tool for all my image needs- PowerPoint. It is not a new tool but it has lots of benefits (even over some of the more traditional tools like Photoshop). Most of you have likely used PowerPoint once in your life for creating presentations. Today in … [Read more...] about How to Create Awesome Images for your Blog Posts using PowerPoint

This one tip will not only make your article interesting and meaningful but will also make it actionable/doable. Not to mention, these are three important attributes of a quality article, which Google likes. One of the most common way people start writing an article/Blog post is, directly talk about the topic. For example, if you are reviewing one antivirus tool, you will start with details, description, and features. Now, this approach is not bad but again what’s the harm in making your article as desirable as your personality. Increasing the curiosity of your readers and later point them to the topic. That’s where this rule of Why, What and how comes into the picture. It triggers the action mechanism of readers, and they would love to read and follow your article. Let’s consider three simple scenarios: A … [Read more...] about Why? What? How? Rule in Writing Blog Post?
