Interview Blog Post Recipe

Generate blogs based on interviews using LongShot's interview blog post recipe.


An interview blog post is an article that features someone else's views or opinions on a particular subject. The interviewer (usually the blogger) will ask the questions and then share the answers with the readers of the blog post. The interviewee can be a person of interest, an expert on a topic, or a famous person with an interesting story.

This content type showers some authority and credibility on the interviewer from the interviewee. It also adds depth and breadth to your audience's perspective on a topic. And it's the easiest way to create content or repurpose it. You can pick out quotes or situations for your social media content.
