Admittedly, this is the hardest part of writing a blog post. That’s because the first sentence should be able to reel in the reader, and at the same time, give them an idea what your post will be all about.
You can start with a:
- Thought-provoking question – “Do you know what a blog post and a sandwich have in common?”
- Quote – “Ernest Hemingway once said: ‘There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.’
- Statistic – “According to the Official Federation of Bloggers*, 99.9 percent of bloggers experience writer’s block.”
- Story – “The other day, I had a Newtonian experience. That is, an apple fell on my head.”
*Disclaimer: This is a hypothetical example. As of this writing, the Official Federation of Bloggers doesn’t exist.
