Blogging with Notion: Tips and Tricks for Getting Started

Blogging with notion is a great way to get your thoughts and ideas down in an organized way. You can use tags and categories to keep your posts organized, and you can even set up a custom domain for your blog if you want to get serious about blogging. In this article, we’ll give you some tips and tricks for getting started with blogging in Notion.

Use a blog theme that you love

Choose a blog theme you like, find a premium WordPress theme that looks great with the Notion design, or use a free WordPress theme to get started quickly.

Whether you prefer a calm, minimalist style or a more playful, bright aesthetic, there are plenty of WordPress themes that you’ll be sure to love

Notion includes a wide selection of blog themes, including elegant, minimal styles and playful, colorful themes. We also have a range of magazine and portfolio themes for more professional-looking websites.

You can always change the color of your WordPress theme, but there are a few things you can do to make it more versatile

You can change the color of your fonts, update your header images, and play with contrast and transparency. While these tweaks are easy to make, you don’t want to change your brand identity so make sure you don’t go overboard.

Use a WordPress theme with a light or dark color scheme

There are thousands of WordPress themes available, each with their own design scheme. To help you choose the right one for your blog, you can look at other websites, reading reviews and looking at comparison charts. You can also look at what other bloggers are using and try out a few different options to see what works best for you.

Add headings to your content

One of the easiest ways to add more structure to your website or blog is to add headings to your post. Your content will automatically organize itself better by using headings. When you create a new post, you can add it to your Notion project using the Add to Notion button. Now, when you want to create a new section or add a piece of content, you can click on the “Add Heading” button to add a new one with no effort.

Write your headline

The headline is the first thing your audience will see when they spot your content in search results. If you don’t get the headline right, you might as well have wasted your time writing that post. For this reason, you should make sure your headline is eye-catching, informative, and catchy. Notion allows you to type your own headline.

Add a strong keyword

When you write a new post, one of the first things you should do is add a keyword to your headline. A keyword is a term that you add to your post to make it easier for search engines to find. It is also what people search on to find your post if they are looking for it. A strong keyword helps you get found in search engines. You can add a keyword when you create a new post by adding a tag. Go to the tag menu in the sidebar and click New Tag. A new tag will automatically be added to your post. Go back to the post menu and click the tag to add it as a keyword for your post. You can also add the same tag to your title and subheadings. Keep in mind that you only need to add one keyword to each post to optimize it for search engines.

Write the first paragraph

The first paragraph is often the hardest to write. But it can make all the difference in how your content will be perceived. It should quickly capture the attention of your fellow readers without boring them with unnecessary details. A great way to write an attention-grabbing first paragraph is to use an anecdote. If you can tell a story or share an experience that relates to the topic of your post, your audience will be more likely to continue reading.

Write the final paragraph

Your post can end with a final paragraph that sums up what you want people to take away from your post. This can be a call to action or just a reminder of the main topic you covered.

Use bold and italics to make your content jump off the page

Using bold or italics to highlight keywords in your content is one of the easiest ways to increase search engine visibility for your content. It’s an effective way to help the human reader quickly skim the content, as well. Not only will you jump off the page, but you will also capture the attention of search engines.

Use bold to emphasize a key point in your content

Bold text is a great way to emphasize a specific word or phrase in your content. If your post has several key points, you can use bold to highlight them. For example, if you’re writing a post about how to choose a WordPress theme, you could start by listing the top five things to consider. To highlight these key points and make them stand out, add bold to the first word of each list item.

Use italics to add a conversational tone to your content

Using italics to add a conversational tone to your content is a great way to add personality to your content. Whether you’re writing a story or sharing an experience, using italics makes your content sound more personal and more genuine.

Use bold and italics to add personality to your content

Adding personality to your content can increase your credibility as an authority in your niche, particularly if you share regularly. Whether you’re writing about how to get the most out of your gym membership or how to improve your relationship, using personality to add some levity or fun can make your content more relatable. However, be careful that you don’t overdo it or you may end up coming off as snarky or condescending.

Use bold and italics to get your point across

There are two things you can do to make your content jump off the page: use bold and italics. Bold gives a piece of text more personality and can draw the eye to a specific part of your post. Italic makes a piece of text more distinctive or show that you are quoting something.

Use bold and italics to add impact

The first thing that people notice on any type of content is the use of strong, impactful fonts. Whether it’s bold and italicized headlines, sub-headers, or body copy, using unique fonts can really make your content stand out from the crowd. However, it’s important to use fonts that are legible and that work well together, so be sure to test your fonts before posting your content to make sure they look good and are easy to read.

Use lists to break up your content

Lists make it easier for your readers to skim your content. If you want to make your content easier to read, use lists to break it up. Not only does this improve the readability, but it also helps your audience better understand your content if they’re reading quickly.

Numbered lists

One of the easiest and most versatile ways to add structure to your content is through lists. Lists let you organize your content into specific categories and add a number to each item to make it easier to read. They can also be added to any post, which helps the post to maintain a consistent structure.


Using bullets can be a great way to break up lengthy posts, especially if you want to add links. Just remember to always keep your bullets short and clean, and never use bullets to break up your content within paragraphs.

Definition lists

The definition list is an extremely simple style to add to your posts. It consists of a single list, which has a header for each item in the list. The items in the list are presented as bulleted and/or numbered sub-headers. When you view the list in blog view, it will show the headers as bold and the sub-headers as regular text.

Content lists

Creating lists can help you easily break down your content into categories for easier organization. For example, create a list for all the top 10 ways to grow a beard and refer back to it whenever someone asks how to grow a beard.
