Everyone knows that at the heart of a great blog is excellent content. No matter how much social media and promotion you do, at the end of the day, it is the insight and the ideas that you have that get your readers to come back.
Coming up with much content is more easily said than done. It is even more difficult to come up with great content quickly. If you are staring at a blank word document, constantly letting distracted by the Internet, micro your phrases and words, and inflate your content with unnecessary chips, headers, images, and links, then you’re probably doing something wrong.
Don’t worry, however. These steps can help you to break your habits and get back you on track with your awesome blog.
Mental chain reactions happens all the time. Make us connections, collect new ideas, a single moment “aha!”. Come with an idea can get you go with several others. It is a process quite messy, chaotic, however. What you have to do is stay organized while you’re brainstorming. Your connections, if you come up with a great idea, will fly out of your head at the speed of light. Get a pen and paper, or open your word document. Note each connection shortly, every little guidance that you do. I really want to say every little detail, no matter how stupid it sounds initially.
Now that you are done with brainstorming, you can see what you wrote. Everything that is currently feasible? All that is exciting if you cannot wait to start? Those who can produce a useful series of posts? Organize and categorize your ideas and get started.
Very well. So, now you have a good idea, but good ideas must be well executed for being really “great.” Plan ahead; It should not take more than five to ten minutes. If you go with the templatic “10 ways to…”. “or”Top 20…”, then it’s pretty easy.” List just on the subheader for each of the numbered steps. It is simple, but definitely worth your time. Under each subheader if you think it’s necessary, add a bullet point or small notes to keep in mind when you actually begin to write.
If your idea is not templatic, it should still be relatively easy to structure your ideas. An introduction, body and conclusion should be there. Organize the contents of your body into categories that work well under subheadings.
Organizing advice, of course, only here is how I’m going to this subject. If you like to write out and organizer subsequently, you are more free to do so. Just be sure that your method gives results.
Now it’s time to write it. You got the idea, you have the plan. But look! Your crush just messaged you! Your best friend is tagged in a photo! Your friend is pas-si-close is boast incredible vacation!
Close tabs! You do not want social media distract you while you write. Certainly, maybe distractions give you new ideas to add to your content, but it is rare and more than likely, it is toxic and unrelated to your actual plan. You have to find the place and the time when you are less likely to be distracted by what your friends do or say. In this way, you are sure you’re producing writing that you want.
While you write is too toxic. Maybe you’re not distracted by social media, but you are distracted by your own perfectionist self. Awkward formulations, offensive flow, typos, etc. definitely are n – n, in writing, but that does not mean that you must stop and fix as soon as you notice.
Review, this is probably your best friend, perfectionists. Everyone knows this is revision which is at the heart of the great writing. A first terrible project can turn into gold if you revise just. Give yourself a moment, an hour or two, to clear your head and then go back on what you’ve written with a new perspective. You will probably notice questions you’d never with your micromanagement tunnel vision.
Constantly re-read your writing, through various lenses every time. It may be the first time just to check the flow and structure. The second is just to correct grammar and spelling. The third single to verify the authenticity of the content. Do not attempt to fix it at once.
Your writing is now satisfactory, but everyone knows that words alone will not get people interested. Good thing it’s a quick and easy solution. Add headers of subheadings, bold text, etc. to make the text itself more attractive. Then add your links, images, thumbnails. It will add some nice rocket to your awesome content. But don’t overdo it and divert attention away from the words themselves.
The first step is the most difficult and most crucial. Find the time when you come up with the most ideas is a must. Once this is done, you just need to correct certain bad habits, distractions, micromanagement, overformatting. You’re on your way to post some great stuff.
