Hey guys,
I have a magazine sport site, every time I try to write my content I'm having some trouble writing my intros.

Do you mean the first paragraph of each article? I'm not a great writer, but I don't think it's too complicated. What I always do is writing a friendly and welcoming intro, in informal language. You should write a 100-words paragraph, include a nice image then start to come up with your content.

You might try writing your intro paragraph after you've completed the body of your article.

By doing that, you'll be able to introduce the points you're about to make in the article itself.

Get into the details of what your blog topic is about and finish the blog post. Then go back to the beginning and introduce what you will be going over in the topic..etc

Small Tips

The Intro should be small and descriptive that readers understand the concept or idea of the article. In Intro tell the why this article important and it concern to reader problem.

It's a good idea to start your blog post with a personal anecdote, or just explain what inspired you to write the post in the first place. That way you will capture the attention of your readers, add a personal touch and you won't sound generic.

In regards to your question, typically any introduction to a book, magazine or even a public discourse is crucial since it really determines whether some people will continue to read or listen and stay attentive. Some of the things to keep in mind while putting your magazine intro together is:

First getting the attention of your audience. Second, clearly identifying your subject, and lastly showing why the subject is important to your audience.

It's also good to remember to consider those in your audience and be aware of their circumstances, their concerns, their attitudes, what they already know about your subject, which in this case would be sports related. Be aware that what you say in your introduction is of primary importance, but how you say it can also arouse interest.

Just my 2 cents

Informal or formal doesn't matter, but stick to the point and set the boundaries of the topic and start writing. Add some user irresistable images/ pictures and your title should be very catchy. Initially question people and your presentation must be simple and understandable. After questioning the things or presenting some stuff then end the intro with pleasant promise.
