In a single look, the writer should know what it is and how it is useful to him/her. Use numbers in them if needed but not mandate.

But to write them you need to research and rewrite ‘’N’’ number of times if needed.

Images:

One correct image can do the trick to you. Write a spellbound content and post it without any image, see the result. Now write another masterpiece, add an image and see the outcome. Definitely, the article with an image will have a better result than the one without. So add images but see to that these images depict the topic so that image acts as an advantage rather than a disadvantage.

What’s your expertise?

Ask yourself before writing any article. What is your expertise and how are you going to justify your credibility to write on a topic and what is your qualification to write. Once you get strong YES for these two questions then you start writing. Before you write on any topic you should have knowledge first then alone you can share it with readers. Research, research and research till you get ample info and then start to write.
