    Hi Uzma. Blog writing has a fairly specific style in terms of layout. Looking at the most popular blogs you can often spot similarities in how their articles are presented to visitors. Generally speaking blog articles are between 500 and 600 words. Any shorter and you won't be able to provide adequate information and any longer and people loose interest. Articles are broken into sections to make for easier reading. Otherwise, all people see is a single block of text which is less interesting. Have catchy titles like "5 Ways to Save..." or "Top Money Saving..." to get click-throughs. Always have an image if possible. It breaks up the text and gives the reader something else to look at. In terms of niche content, it doesn't really matter other than it should be well written and impart knowledge or entertainment. Write content you personally would want to read and that should work for most visitors. I've provided a couple of links which are good examples of how a blog article should look.
