We are really excited to be given the chance to write for JT’s blog – and we know many others are too! Since there are many aspiring writers out there, we’ve decided to jump in and give some helpful advice on how to write creative, thoughtful posts worthy of an established blogging platform such as What Would JT Do.

How does one compose a well-organized blog post that conveys information clearly, paints dynamic pictures in the mind of the reader, and entices the audience? It can be a little overwhelming to dive into blogging without having a few directions, but fear not! We’ve combined our years of experience with writing and blogging to provide a step-by-step guide for all those ambitious guest bloggers out there.
