Blog Improvement Project Week #13: Blog Post Bingo, Round 2!

BIPThe Blog Improvement Project task this week is:

Blog Post Bingo!

We have to take a look at the 12 types of blog post below, and over the next three weeks, try to write as many of these different kinds of posts as we can.



 The 12 Types of Blog Post

A Link Post – share link (or series of links) your readers might find interesting
A Short Post – less than 200 words
A List Post – simple as it sounds, a list of some sort
An Opinion Post – take an event, news, or another blog post and share your opinion on it
A Poll or Question Post – post a poll or ask your readers a specific question for feedback
A How-To Post – You’re an expert in something; big or small, share how to do it
A Long Post – more than 700 words
A Review Post – self-explanatory, I think 🙂
A Definition Post – show your expertise about a topic related to your blog
NEW: A Personal Post – something that’s going on in your life, related to your normal blog topic or not
NEW: A Resource Post – you know a lot about something, share the sites/books/tutorials you go to on that topic. This is similar to a link post, except these links should be related in some way and be useful for other people who want to know about the topic.
FREE SPACE – a type of post of your choice (that is not the same as one of the previous posts)

I loved doing this task last time, but it was really hard work. I’ll do my best to complete the list, but I could do with your help. I need some inspiration for the How-To Post and the Resource Post.

Is there anything you’d like to know how to do? 

Or anything that you think I might be able to find out for you?

Two things I like about your blog that you might be able to write about are your review policy and your really well-organized categories. I’m not sure what sorts of posts those topics could be or if they’re interesting to other people, but I don’t have either one my blog blog. My categories are a total mishmash, and I only have a review policy in draft.

I’m pleased you like my categories. I only sorted them out a few weeks ago, before that they were in a real mess. I still haven’t been back through my posts to catergorise the old ones – it is a slow process. I’m not sure how much there is to say about them though – I’ll have to think about it a bit.

I like Kim’s ideas. I do not have a review policy. Should I? Is this something that should be standard on a blog? I will blame the fact that I am new at this (how long can I claim this?). I loved your last Bingo…as I remember you nailed them all!

I thought I’d seen a lot about review policies recently – that’s why I did one, but I could do my take on it!

I don’t think you can claim you’re new any more – I think we started at about the same time!

I think I’m going to steal some of these ideas…

I also like your categories. My blog is so very basic that I wonder if people can’t be bothered to read it. I’m not entirely sure I’d be able to sort out all the categories!
