Did you ever wonder if you could write faster?

Today, we will show you how you can solve all these problems with the power of “Blog Writing Templates.”


Why Use Templates?

 You may be thinking that using blog writing templates is not so sexy.
And it’s true, using template can be too mechanical, robotic at first.
Eventually once you get the hang of it. It’s predictability will give you more room to be creative in your writing.
In addition to that, it also allow you to maintain quality, consistency and predictable results.
So today, we list down 8 of the Best Blog Blog Writing Templates out there. From marketing institutions, master bloggers and very smart writers.
But first…


What Are The Benefits Of Using Templates

Let’s dive in more on what incredible benefits you will get if you start using writing templates.

Here are some of them:

1) Guide you through the process.

A writing template will guide you on what things to do first, second, third and so on. In a manner that makes sense.

It will also remind you of the things that you keep on forgetting.

2) Remind you that your first draft can (and will) be ugly.

It’s a common mistake for newbies that they try to get the first draft perfect. Editing as they write and stopping the flow of ideas. Eventually leading them to be stuck.

Having a template to guide you through the process will remind you to:

  • Allow yourself to write ugly, imperfect grammar, bad spelling in the first draft
  • Edit this later by correcting grammar, being more conversational, cutting long paragraphs, etc.

3) Remind you that it will get better later.

By following a set process, you get to be at ease in writing your thoughts down. With the assurance that you will go back and edit it later.


4) Editing.

Remind you to edit your work. And about the things you should look for while editing. Such as checking the grammar, checking spellings, cutting unnecessary words, etc.


5) Put a call to action

Maximize all your blog posts by never forgetting to put a call to action.

These call to actions can be to:

  • sign-up in email list
  • buy a product
  • book a consultation
  • invite you to talk
  • help in your new project
  • share it on social media
  • comment below


6) Images, Images, Images.

According to localvox:

“Articles with images get 94% more views.”

Apart from getting more views. Blog posts with images are more likely to be read from start to end and shared.

Having images also helps break the monotony of long articles.


7) Promotion

At least 80% of content marketing is about well…

Marketing and promoting your content.

Unless you already have a strong following. Your blog posts will almost certainty get no views, comments and shares unless…

You promote it.

And having a system to follow will make sure that you promote your content every single time.

Now that you know some of the benefits of using templates.


Let’s get on to the Best Blog Writing Templates!




The Best Blog Writing Templates


These are the best of the best blog writing templates out there.

They are templates that we will use ourselves. And are instrumental to helping us build “The Ultimate Blog Writing Template”.

Next on our list is another one from hubspot. This one will kill all your excuses…




Written by Corey Eridon | @Corey_bos for hubspot.

Contains a excuse-killing fill-in-the-blank template.

During times when you find it hard to get started. And this template is excellent for such situations.

Here is the basic template from the guide:

1) Introduction
Have you ever tried to …..
2) Body
If you’re looking for….
3) Conclusion
Now that you know….

The guide which you can see here contains the full template.

foolproof formula hubspot best blog writing templates by gerome soriano for growth bloggers

Fill in the blanks.

foolproof formula, best blog writing templates, gerome soriano, growth bloggers

Get your writing juice flowing. It doesn’t have to be perfect on the first draft.

And no, you don’t even need to have your research done to start.

By filling up this template, you will figure out what things you need to research about. And things you can do to make the second draft a whole lot better.

Third on our list is template is good but can get better. So I added my own ideas below…




Inside is this Steal-able 5-Step Template:

1) Tell a story related to your topic:
It’s Wednesday at…..

2) Identify the problem from your story:
….. right on time to cancel the session — again.

3) Re-state the problem in general terms that apply to your reader:
Personal training isn’t easy….

4) Lay out the steps to solving:
There’s no example on this article. But Jonathan does use one leading to the template, it’s:

“Finally it’s time to….”

5) Conclusion:

Here’s what Jonathan recommend to use or conclusions:
1) A thought-provoking quote
2) A famous quote
3) Leave a surprise joke

Sidenote: Personally, I find Jonathan’s ideas for conclusions hard to use, especially in regards to the target audience I have.

So here are some ideas that I choose from for writing conclusions:
1) TL;DR – Too Long; Don’t Read – from Reddit and forum culture. Quick outline of the content.
2) To sum up….
3) Ask a question
4) Leave an assignment – something I see Bryan Harris of Video Fruit doing and Ramit Sethi of I Will Teach You To Be Rich doing.

This template is excellent for writing story-driven blog posts. And as we know story sells.

5 step viralnomics best blog writing templates by gerome soriano for growth bloggers


Sidenote: This article emphasized the importance of systems. And if you want to learn more about systems. I encourage to check out the works of Michael Gerber’s “E-Myth”, Procedure People, John Warrilow’s “Build To Sell”, and Sam Carpenter’s “Work The System.”

Here is the basic method on this article:

1) Tell a story related to your topic.
2) Identify the problem from your story.
3) Re-state the problem in general terms that apply to your reader.
4) Lay out the steps to solving.
5) Conclusion

Now go to the article here.

Get ideas flowing.

And if you get stuck on step 4 and/or 5 go back here and see my ideas for those parts.

Number 4 on our list is by a writer, who I really like the work of, in Buffer and Ghost blogs.

And this guide by her claims to increase your writing speed by as much as 600%…




Belle is amazing, she also writes for Buffer, and I found her writing to be really good and helpful.

Inside is Belle’s process for developing blog writing templates.

She used it to develop her own template and in making templates based from other writer’s work.

Here’s her template:




– what this section is about
– why it matters
– research or examples
– takeaways


– what this section is about
– why it matters
– research or examples
– takeaways


– what this section is about
– why it matters
– research or examples
– takeaways



<small>Image credits:</small>


Apart from that template, Belle also outlined how she turned John O’ Nolan (The Single Greatest Method for Immediately Increasing Your Blog Post Production Speed by 600%) and Alex Turnbull of Groove (Groove’s Journey to $100k blog) works into templates.

She did this by outlining what the different parts of their writing are doing. By asking what questions those parts were answering.

This article is most useful for helping you create your own template.

Especially for making your blog post longer without adding more fluff. But by adding really useful, relevant and helpful information.

ghost blog, outline, write faster and better , best blog writing templates, gerome soriano, growth bloggers


Basically, Belle deconstructs what’s working really well for other people. And then translate them into writing outlines.

That is then turned into a blog writing template.


On this part she goes on the process of transforming Alex Turnbull’s writing to a template.

alex turnbull, ghost blog, outline, write faster and better , best blog writing templates, gerome soriano, growth bloggers

She basically extracted what questions these parts are answering. And what kind of information are these parts giving.

So go to Belle’s blog post. Read it. Take a template there and modify it for your own use.

Sidenote: For this post I used this outline for the contents in the list:

Takeaway quote
Who did it
Content sample
What it’s good for
Where to see it
Meta method
How to use it

Next on our list is a treat for all those visual learners out there. It’s an infographic by Derek Halpern, outlining his version of the perfect blog post…




Here is Derek Halpern’s infographic of the perfect blog post.

Are you like me?

Looking to master parts of your business.

One at a time.

Then one of the things you might be looking master might be blogging.

Oh blogging. That thing looks very simple but very complicated and daunting all at the same time.

You might find yourself looking at blog writing guides, tutorials and blogs.

Perhaps you even came across the Best Blog Writing Templates I’ve outlined in this blog. 

They are the best of the best out there. But if you’re like me. You find will find yourself not dissatisfied.

Because all of them are lacking in some way. One has information that one doesn’t. And vice versa.



Scattered Information


The information out there is all scattered.

You have to read that guide for making your headline. Then another guide for creating images. Then another one for outlining your post.

So much work.

So much headache.

So little time.

There’s gotta be a solution. There’s got to be a better way of doing this.

So I scratched my own itched and…



Brought Together For My Use


Combined all these wonderful guides, tutorials and tips into one master mindmap. That I use side-by-side while creating blog posts.


And I call it “The Ultimate Blog Writing Template”

This mindmap helps me to:

1) Stay in process
Because it’s easy to get lazy. And skip critical parts of the blog writing process like setting a goal to achieve, solidifying who is the target reader and what makes a powerful headline.

2) Not forget anything
When you don’t have a checklist like this it’s easy to forget to put a call to action, a feature image, and tags.

3) Get started faster
One of my favorite parts of “The Ultimate Blog Writing Template” is the  swipe file and the starters. Tehy help me get into the “writing zone” faster. And remind me of the writing tactics that have worked for me in the past.

4) Keep my swipefiles handy
With my swipefile of the best blog headlines on my side. It’s impossible for me to write a bad headline.

5) Not get stuck
Quickly conquer writer’s block with starters, swipefiles and ideas.

6) Remember to edit
Again, it’s easy to get lazy. But editing is a crucial part of writing. Even the greats like Hemingway edit their work.

And the mindmap reminds to follow their example.

7) Remember what to look for in editing
Things like formatting, links, grammar, readability, etc.

8) And remember to promote my blog post once it’s up
80% of the work of blogging is promotion. Without promotion it’s almost impossible to chance upon your blog post.
