Ways to Enhance Your Blog Posts

This is a list of creative ways to make your blog content go down "with a spoonful of sugar."
1

http://listly

http://listly
List.ly is an interactive way to add listed items to your blog posts (or any other web page). The beauty of it is that you can open up your list to other List.ly users and share ideas easily.
2

SlideShare

SlideShare
Create a deck on SlideShare and get lots of bang for your buck. Earn views over on the SlideShare site, and then embed it within your blog post to create a two-way stream of traffic. Your blog visitors will appreciate seeing your information presented in a nice visual format that's ideal for sharing.
3

YouTube

YouTube
Embed a YouTube (or Vimeo) video into your blog post to reinforce a particular point. There are some great resources like TED talks, explainer videos, and even song clips that can add spice to your blog's information.
4

Soundcloud

Soundcloud
Add audio from a service like SoundCloud, or make your own audio file to personalize parts of your blog post. Everyone learns a different way, and some people prefer to listen to content rather than read. Try an experiment---narrate your next blog post and see what feedback you get!
ClickToTweet
Use ClickToTweet to make it super easy for your readers to share the best quotes from your article.

Canva

Canva

There's a reason everyone is talking about Canva. It's dead-simple to use, free, and full of design tools that take your visuals to the next level. They also have a growing library of customizable design templates catered to all your graphics needs? Check it out here: www.canva.com/templates.

SurveyMonkey

SurveyMonkey
Use an embeddable survey tool like SurveyMonkey to find out what your readers are thinking. Consider doing a monthly poll and sharing the results with your audience. You can write a blog post that details the conclusions of the survey results.
8

Piktochart

Piktochart
Swap out your dry old bullet points for a beautiful infographic. Piktochart is free, and you can easily embed your masterpiece within a blog post to illustrate your point.
Google Charts - Google Developers
Add interactive charts to your blog posts in a snap. Take your crunchy numbers and turn them into a more readable, consumable format.
Content Idea Generator - Portent
No, you don't have to literally use these (sometimes) silly suggestions, but I've found that they can shove me in the direction of a good blog title! After all, the headline is what will draw them in (or not) before they even start reading your article.
