The Best Writing Techniques in 2022

Posts are short essays, ranging from 300 to 1,000 words, which discuss certain themes that are intended to bring the mind to reality, whether in the form of certain facts, concepts, or comments.

How to write a good and correct post?

In fact, writing a post is basically the same (listed in the post that was asked a lot above). One thing that needs to be considered in writing posts is what type of post you want to write. If you don't know what type of post you're writing, it's hard to expect your post to succeed in attracting readers' attention because your post isn't clearly formatted.

Well, in this warm dish I want to help you explain how to make all types of posts, here I will present an example in front of you.

Content Notes:

  1. Steps to Write Posts in General
  2. Post Description
  3. Narrative Posts
  4. Exposition Posts
  5. Argument post
  6. Persuasion Posts
  7. SEO Posts (Special for Online Writing)
  8. Steps to Write Posts in General
  9. Broadly speaking, the steps for writing a post can be made into 5 meaningful points as follows:
  10. Define Theme. The theme must be specific. Keep on being special keeps on getting attention.
  11. Set the purpose of preparation. The majority of posts, especially in the description and narrative type posts, do not report the purpose of the arrangement explicitly, but implicitly.
  12. State the main idea or problem. Generally, the formulation of the problem is in the form of a problem. It's just that in the preparation of post descriptions and narrations, the formulation of the case is not explicit but is hidden behind the flow of writing (I'll explain later with an example at the bottom).
  13. Develop themes and reviews according to the type of post (I will explain further below)
  14. Draw conclusions. The conclusion is easy. You can make it well if the logic or flow of your post is correct.

These are the steps for compiling posts universally. On the other hand, you must adjust the detailed steps according to the form or type of post you want to write. Because each form or type of post has a different arrangement method.

In the following, I will explain the method of compiling each form or type of post along with examples.


Post Description

Post description is an essay that aims to write a reflection of something real so that the reader can imagine it in the mind. I prefer to call it a photo post. Because one hundred percent of this post contains a reflection of conditions, events, events.

Post  Method Description

  • Determine the object, either in the form of a condition or concept that you want to describe
  • Also, determine the purpose of the arrangement (implied).
  • Determine the formulation of the main inspiration (implied).

Develop writing into a sequence. Is it sourced in the order of time: morning-afternoon-evening; or the order of 1 o'clock, 2 o'clock, 3 o'clock; or year order: the year 2000, the year 2003, the year 2005; or use the order of place: from the edge to the center; from base to tip; or we want to apply the order of importance: from the most significant, meaningful to the least significant.

Close with a paragraph that defines the object being described.

Anyway, the author of the description post in the example above uses the development method based on the order of the place. The author describes his experience during an excursion to the waterfront of Datuk Island. He described the beauty of the expedition by the sea from the beginning to the end of the expedition in a sequence. The author wants you (the reader) to see, feel, face what he feels and naturally.

The rule of success in making a description post is the beginning: the more senses we involve the better because readers will be able to feel, imagine, let alone participate in what we describe. From the example of the post above, for example in the title: Semburat Dusk… The author wants us to look at the twilight.

Second, don't put your opinions or comments into posts. The basis for posting descriptions is DRAWING or PAINTING, so take photos and paint as they are, pure or pure inviting readers to see the conditions or reality or experiences that you feel and are natural.


Narrative Posts

This type of post is intended to describe a condition or situation, either based on a time sequence or a sequence of events. I prefer to name it a story post.

Yes, some kind of story (novels, short stories, novels, fairy tales, films, dramas, etc.), in a narrative post there must be characterizations, like in a story in general. The character is interpreted as a being who struggles with problems and conflicts with life. And he tried to win the struggle. The existence of life conflicts makes this type of writing interesting to read. Because if there is no conflict, then a narrative will become tasteless.

Narrative posting method

  • Define a team.
  • Define goals (implied).
  • Determine the formulation of the main inspiration (implied).
  • Develop writing by creating a storyline: early – middle – end. The early part makes for an interesting opening; the middle part depicts the struggle of the character's life to the peak of the conflict, aka the climax; at the end ends with an anti-climax and ending.

After that, make an anti-climax as a closing.

The rule of success in writing narrative posts is in our ability to present the conflicts felt by the characters in the story and how the characters respond to these problems with their own tricks. The more intense the conflict, the greater the character's behavior, the more interesting the post.

Anyway, in writing a narrative, we (writers) may insert opinions or messages contained in the story. It's just that opinions or messages are embedded, implied, not expressed. The message of the story is integrated into the storyline and is not carried out in the same way as argumentative posts. Such an example in the biography of Ir. Soekarno above, the message in the post implies a tireless struggle to achieve and maintain independence.


Exposition Posts

This type of post is an essay that aims to describe a topic. Can be in the form of an explanation of the definition, use, part, and efficacy of a concept. It can also be in the form of steps, methods, or processes of doing something. I prefer to call it an exhibition post.

I call it an exhibition post because the distinctive characteristics of this post are showing off bullet points, numerical sequences, step-by-step sessions, juxtaposing definitions, etc. Sometimes there is an individual opinion factor in this type of post, sometimes not (especially in the translation of scientific definitions).

Method of Compiling Exposition Posts

  • Define a team.
  • Define goals (explicit).
  • Determine the formulation of the main inspiration (expressed).
  • Develop purposeful writing. If the essay is intended to explain the meaning, then develop the essay by presenting information and facts to strengthen the definition or process. If you want to explain the method, make the stages from beginning to end systematically. If you want to explain the benefits, make the benefits one by one. And if the essay is intended to explain the process, then detail the process.
  • Share conclusion

Examples of this post you can find scattered on the internet regarding: definitions, uses, benefits, positions, or posts that contain instructions for carrying out an alias How To. The type of writing in this example is the How-To type, which is a method of writing a bibliography from the internet.

For me (after having experience writing posts since 2009), expository posts, especially the how to type, are posts that are very easy to work with (especially for writing posts on the web). Because we write things that are instantaneous without elaboration without in-depth analysis. Posts that can be a bit difficult are writing scientific definitions because we really have to look for reliable literature to convince readers.


Argument post

This post is in the form of an opinion essay (individual comments, organizations, or institutions).

The writing is motivated by criticism of a comment, condition, or policy. Writers generally want to include individual or group opinions into writing in full, of course with supporting information or facts. So that his opinion can attract support from readers. I prefer to call it a comment post.

Argument Post Compilation Method

  • Determine the problem/theme.
  • Define goals (explicit).
  • Determine the problem formulation (written).
  • Develop an essay by presenting information and facts to strengthen your own comments and can also weaken other people's comments (if any).
  • Share conclusion

For me, this type of post is very difficult to write (especially newcomers). Because we need to find information and convincing facts to support our comments. Besides that, I've often seen many newcomer writers whining about their opinions not being published in a particular newspaper or news message while having tried it time and time again.

In fact, having an opinion or an argument is easy, as long as our alibi is convincing. The conditions for successful writing argumentative posts are: You really have to understand the problem and READ A LOT. Don't let us be laughed at because there is data that is awkward or illogical or misquoted or expired that we put in the post.


Persuasive Posts

This type of post is also popular with motivational articles. Because the writing is persuasive alias persuasive. The effect can move the reader to do or explore something and vice versa leave something. I prefer to call it a bug post

Method of Compiling Persuasion Posts

  • Determine the problem/theme.
  • Define goals (explicit).
  • Determine the formulation of the main inspiration (expressed).
  • Develop an essay by presenting information and facts to convince others so that it can move readers to do good and avoid bad.
  • Share conclusion

We want to be really successful writing this type of post is: We have to face, feel (or slightly face/feel) what we want others to experience and feel. So that we can passionately persuade people to explore the message in our writing. If we are excited, readers will also be excited to read it. And we hope that they will be moved and agree to our invitation. Even though they do not / have not practiced our invitation, at least they agree and say yes.


SEO post

SEO posts are posts that are intended to maximize keyword searches on web search engines such as Google. He's not a certain type of post. It is a post that is intended specifically for online writing on the web or the web. The type of article is the same as the post I mentioned above. SEO posts can be in the form of descriptions, narratives, expositions, arguments, or persuasion. It's just that certain settings are needed so that search engines, such as Google, can easily crawl and identify the theme of a website or website.

The essence of writing SEO posts is: practicing search engine rules in writing posts so that the engine crawler robots can easily track and recommend our posts appear on the front page of search results. For further explanation, please read my writing on this one: SEO Friendly Post Writing Method
