Headlines and Keywords Suck

Last Update: Jul 18, 2019

Yeah, well I fell off the wagon AGAIN!

Been up since 3am to write a killer article today but it's now 5;50 and I have not got a suitable keyword yet.

So, doing something I can do, or can I?

This is day two that I am battling to get an article out. Maybe I just need to ....?


I don't know how or why, but as soon as I published this post... the lights came on and I found a suitable Keyword.

I guess when the lights came on the silver shone more and I could concentrate. Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

In all of my posts, my keywords are always included into the title. Therefore, I never write a post until the keywords are definite. I always pick a topic, followed by keyword research and then research on the article itself. To make it a bit more difficult, any pictures or videos that are used in the posts, also must relate to what is being written about. Welcome to blogging for a living. Having fun yet?

Hey, Joseph. I use the same formula as you and that was why I was stuck at the very beginning. Got through it though, thankfully.

Had to quickly google tablet weaver, lol. Great hobby with quite a following I see.

Wishing you the best.


Hi Bryan and good on you for pushing through.

Just keep writing whatever is on your mind, it is always easier to correct something you have written than having nothing written.

All the best to you.

Darren :)

Thanks, Darren

HI Bryan,

Main thing is you got her done. Great persistence. Good for you.


Thanks, Michael

Sorry to hear you are going through this. We all have days (and days and days and days...) where getting a single sentence out is a battle. But the more you write and keep to it, eventually the words will flow. Try not to loose yourself in the aggravation of it and don't focus on the keywords at this stage. Once you have gotten your thoughts and raw content out you can edit it and find ways to slip in some keywords after the fact. Good luck!

Thanks, Michelle. I guess I just get tunnel vision and only see KEYWORD!

It's so easy to do! I find I'm often reminding myself to take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

Just keep writing....regardless of your lack of keyword.

Write and write and write without that in mind.

Get all your thoughts out on paper(or screen)

Then sleep on it....and open it tomorrow, read it....and you might have clearer thoughts.

But don't NOT write....that's my take

That's sound advice, Jessica. Thank you. I guess I could work on Keywords later. At least I would be doing something productive.

Sure. Write it out organically. Then reread to figure out keywords

What if your mind had great ideas tonight but they weren’t captured In your brain.

And then you woke up tomorrow with no results from your brainstorm and you lost time again.


You let go of it when you hit that publish button. You were able to relax a bit and your creativity was able to get your attention.

I had a really awful little phrase I taught my students before test time. It's easy to remember and some of them would tell me it helped. It's "stress makes you stupid!" It's based on research, and I've found it to be true. You can't think creatively when you're too stressed out. :-)

Thank you, Nancy. I must be truly stressed. the coffee helped destress though.

Some days you can just choke on the final straight, just the way it is at times, stepping back and coming up for some oxygen can be the thing that makes all the difference.

Thanks, Alex. Very frustrating though.

Thankfully we aren't using clay tablets anymore. Updating would be a whole lot harder, eh? :-) Congrats on the belated brainstorm.

Thanks, KC, Not sure if it's belayed or belittled?

Never, ever belittled. Just comparing the ease of we enjoy today when updating something as opposed to the days of writing on clay tablets or typewriters come to that. No. Never belittled.

Take a break.

Going to make a very large cup of COFFEE!

Hope that jerks you back up. Guess works when the light comes on like you said. Glad you figured it out.

Mmmm, enjoying a great cupa.

Aw, now you're making me jealous. Quit that. LOL. I love coffee. Mostly mocha or double expresso. I can't have any of that. It will set my tachycardia into a sudden speed drive which I do not want to happen. Maybe after my ablation procedure, I can have some cup of joe.

You're probably overthinking it.
Start broad and with jaaxy's help narrow it down

You were 100% correct.
