After entering all these, it is time you click on write for me and let the Writecream long-form editor do the rest. You will see a list of various blog ideas that the long-form editor has
suggested on the basis of all those details you have entered. Select a blog idea among those and copy it to the google doc.
It is important to note that if you have a blog idea already, you enter a one-line description of the blog post in the blog title section in the following format:
‘Blog Title: one-line description of the blog post’
Here we have attached an example showing how to generate a blog idea.
Say we pick, ‘The Best Gift Ideas for Book Lovers: A blog around the best gifts for book lovers.’ as our blog idea. Now we have to paste it to our google document and move on to generate our blog introduction using this blog topic.
The Blog Introduction
Now, after getting the blog idea, it is time to think about your blog introduction. So, you have to change the Use Case from ‘Blog Idea’ to ‘Blog Intro’ while the brand name stays the same.
After doing all this, replace the brand description with the blog idea or the blog title that you got using the writecream long-form editor. Also, after adding the blog title, change the tone of your blog as required.
Once you are done with the mandates, click on write for me. You will see a variety of introductions on your screen. Choose the one that suits your niche and your brand.
After choosing the intro you like the best, copy it and paste it into your google doc. Keep in mind that you select the intro carefully as it is the first paragraph of your article and it defines the layout of a blog that consists of section headings.
Here is the example. In this case, the brand name is the same while the blog topic has been changed to the blog title we generated in the previous step. Now, you have to select one paragraph as your blog introduction among these and move on to the next step.
Developing the Blog Outline
After you are done with the blog intro, it’s now time that you develop the blog outline next. To generate the blog outline using the writecream long-form editor, you know the drill. Change the Use Case from the blog intro to the blog outline.
Now, as everything else is already in its place, you don’t need to change anything else and skip directly to the write for me part.
You will see various outlines presented to you and you have to select one as you have done while selecting the previous cases. After selecting the outline, copy and paste it into your google doc.
As we have got the outline for the blog, we will now generate the text for each section, one by one. You have to choose the blog heading expander for this.
In the example below, you can see various outlines that are provided using the blog title that was generated in the first step. Now choose one among the list of these outlines and paste it to your google document.
Generating the text for each section
We have come a long way using the long-form editor to write your article. As we are done with generating the blog outline, we have to develop the text for each section that is there in your blog outline. Keep reading to know how to do that.
Firstly, copy the first section headline from the google doc. Now, in the Use Case section, select blog heading expander from the dropdown menu. As you might already know by now, the blog title remains the same while you have to paste the section heading under the section headline option you see there. Once you are done adding the section headline, change the tone of the section as required.
Now, after adding all the required entries, click on the write for me option and you will a number of outputs before you. Choose one of them and paste it into your google doc.
We recommend you combine various outputs into one to generate a large piece of text for each section. It will help the word limit and the optimization of your article. If you are unsure of how to do that, then select some outputs and arrange them in a suitable manner and connect them using suitable conjunctions like ‘besides’, ‘in addition, etc. break them into paragraphs however it suits you. Blogs need a certain word count and keywords according to different SEO practices, you should always go according to what your SEO suggests and not blindly copy-paste everything.
As you see that there are various paragraphs displayed under the Blog heading expander. It is possible that you want to combine two or more paragraphs into one. We will choose two paragraphs from the example above and generate a new paragraph by arranging them and connecting them accordingly.
