HM’s Top 8 Tips for Writing Killer Xmas Blogs
  1. Clickbait title. Top X whatever for Xmas.
  2. Opening two sentences.  Fun opening then lead on to the list.
  3. List. One or two sentences for each item.
  4. Pay off.  Couple of sentences to get the hell out of there with a message, a laugh or even a tear.
  5. Images. use Unsplash.com to find two copyright-cleared images.  One to head up the piece, one to go in the middle. Don’t forget to say thanks to the brilliant artists who share their stuff.
  6. Links.  Link to people who will see it and link you back, like other bloggers.
  7. Wrap it all up in an email and send it to us. WE WILL PUBLISH YOU.
  8. Then when it is published nag all your friends and family to share it: “As an early Christmas present”.  Lay it on thick, Christmas is a time for giving, all about family, I really want to make it as a writer.  You know which buttons to push.
