Write more blog posts in less time with this ultimate list of blog post types. 

This list includes my favourite and top-performing blog posts types. Anytime you’re feeling uninspired or overwhelmed at the thought of writing a blog, scroll through this list to find a simple way to organize your ideas and transform them into a blog post.

  • Three hot tips: what are three hot tips you can give from your own experience that will help your audience get x result, solve y problem or accomplish z.
