So much writing! Ideas? Ah! Keyword Research!

Last Update: June 18, 2013
I've actually written two books that were published (and sold on Amazon!) and the process of writing them wasn't that difficult. I knew my audience and my subject material and I just sat at my computer and "talked". I'm naturally organized so it was easy to put my thoughts into a comprehensive format without too much preparation.

And then I wrote a dissertation. While I also knew my audience and subject material quite well, that was harder to get through. Maybe it was the academic-ness of it all. But I did it. And got the title that goes with it!

So I have tried this blog writing thing before. I would start all gung-ho and write two or three posts and then promptly lose interest. But then WA came along and I dedicated myself to creating an informative niche site and contribute to it on a regular basis. I could create 2 or 3 keyword rich quality content articles a week. I could. And I will, dammit!

And then imagine my surprise when I am going through the incredibly informative Level 2 Certification course and I find out that I now have to write articles for OTHER sites that are not my own and they have to be completely new material! So now, in addition to my 2 or 3 articles for my own site, I am writing 2 or 3 more articles for other sites! That is a lot of writing and a lot of different article subjects. When I developed my site in my head, I could count on one hand subjects I could write articles on but now I have to double and triple that and it seems overwhelming!

But then there is this thing called Keyword Research and the advanced techniques that were taught in Level 2 (Alphabet soup technique, Wikipedia, eHow, Thesaurus.com) and I was amazed! I stumbled across at least 5 possible new article ideas in just 45 minutes of research. Those are fascinating techniques and so helpful. Level 2 is worth the price of Premium membership alone!

Of course, I am still a little overwhelmed about coming up with so many articles and writing so much, but I am dedicated to this! And honestly, the more that I work on my site, the more excited I am about making it succeed.

So write on, my friends! Write on!

Do not get over loaded. Rome was not built in a day.

A well written article that brings out your pasion is far better then one wrote from your head.

If people feel your passion they are more likely to respond then one that just sounds good.

Most of al enjoy yourself . If it starts to felel to much like work it is time to take a break

You are probably so far ahead most of us here because of your writing and organizational skills. I am still massaging my writing style and skill. I am looking forward to looking at your sites.

The organizational skills are something that comes natural to me but writing, I had to learn to like. I would suggest that you take the pressure off of your self to trying to make it "right." Just "talk." If you were to have a conversation with someone about a subject that means something to you, I'm sure you could go on and on for 20 minutes without stopping. So have a conversation with your computer. Don't worry about it being organized. Just speak with your train of thought. And then go back and read what you wrote and see if it clearly states what you wanted it to say.

If you have written books. I would think it would be like writing chapters.
Same subject right, each keyword would be a chapter. Just my thought.

That is a great way to look at it, Kymee. The only difference is that with a book, I know that after 10 or 15 or 20 chapters, it will be over! This blog thing goes on in perpetuity! lol! :)

If you fancy getting your Alphabet Soup microwaved for you then don't forget to hop over to http://www.ubersuggest.org Also, Google Suggest can often turn up interesting ideas if you add a space in front of your standard search term, reposition the cursor to the beginning and then type one of the standard journalist queries in front of the keyword, ie. - Who - What - When - Where - Why - How - etc. Rich. x
