Attending a local event is the perfect opportunity to write a blog post. This is a great way to let your readers get to know you better and to create unique and original content that will be shared by some of your local readers on social media. Here is how you can write a great blog post about a local event you attended.
1. Create Content During The Event Itself
Don’t forget to take plenty of photos and to record some videos during the local event. You might not end up using all this material for your blog but going over your photos and videos will help you remember the details of the event. You can also get some ideas for your blog post by talking with the other people who are attending the event or by interviewing some of the individuals who helped planning the event. If you are attending a professional event, approach professionals in your niche and ask them a few questions.
2. Don’t Talk About Everything
You don’t need to write about everything that happened during the event to create a great blog post. Try to create a blog post that is not longer than the content you usually write for your blog. You can also create two or three different posts if you have a lot to say about the event you attended. Find a way to structure your post so that your readers can quickly get an idea of what the event was like even if they do not take the time to read the entire post.
3. Find The Right Tone And Tell Your Readers What They Want To Know
Depending on what the main focus of your blog is, your readers might be more interested in an aspect of the event you attended. Ask yourself which details will be interesting and relevant to your audience before you start writing your blog post. Writing about your personal experience at a local event is an occasion to let your readers get to know you better so don’t hesitate to adopt a more personal tone than usual. Make your posts more interesting by telling your readers about your reactions and your emotions during the event.
4. Get Your Blog Posts Noticed
Writing about local events is a great way to gain new readers in your area and to network with other bloggers or with local businesses. You can network during the event by mentioning your blog. If you talked to any local professionals or organizers during the event, give them a shout out in your blog posts and tag them on social media when you share your blog posts. Don’t hesitate to reach out to local news sources if you took some great photos and videos during the event.
You can follow these steps to write a great blog post about a local event. Focus on the things your readers will want to know about and make your posts fun and interesting to read even for people who did not attend the event.
