What? You didnt produce any content today?

What? You didn’t produce any content today?

If your primary source of income is your blog, WordPress or otherwise, and you did not produce any content today, you might want to ask yourself why. If you are spending too much time as a consumer of words, instead of a producer of words, something may need to change. Of course, to be able to produce meaningful words, some, and perhaps, a lot of consumption is necessary. However, no matter how much is consumed, if nothing is produced, then the blog in question has very little value.

Agree? Disagree?

Thanks for reading.

Thank you for the awesome reminder. I need to produce good quality and engaging content for my readers. But doing it consumes me a lot of time although I write based on my own personal experience, I still need to do some research to update myself with the current trends and make sure to incorporate it with my content by tweaking it. Have a productive day!

I'm struggling a bit with producing content. With that in mind, to write a blog means to talk a bit of my experience associated with a product or business to make it read worthy for readers?

Producing content is great and if your primary source of income is your blog perhaps you should be doing this.

We all have different ideas as to what quality content is. It's like the old adage, one man's treasure is another man's trash. But writing consistently does tend to make you a better writer. Reading is essential to feed your mind and spark your imagination. I like your post it makes everyone think.

Agree! Agree! Agree! If I could get paid for reading I would be wealthy. But then I would have to write a report :)

I agree but it has to be good content, otherwise its a waste of time and will turn people away.

Agree. You can have tons of content in your mind but if you don't put it out there it's useless.

Thanks but I can't write everyday for the life of me! I take a lot of time researching and want to produce content that will be valuable to my audience.

I working towards the goal of a new piece of content daily. It is harder than any other part of internet marketing. Making goals and a daily checklist is the biggest help so far. The 30 day challenges are very important to get your website going in the right direction, especialy if you have some competition.

Totally disagree - you will have better success if you take the time to produce valuable, useful and engaging content, then just writing content for the sake of writing it.

I've been to sites where people write just because and guess what? I'll never go back because the content was and is useless.

Quality content is always superior to writing for the sake of writing. Thanks.

I'm still learning, but I want to walk before I start to run, but that's just me.
I do think it might be best for me to sit back and think what I write before hand.
Many thanks for sharing, cheer, Tosh :)

Of course, you should think about what you are going to write before writing it. There is no other way.

Disagree! Producing words just for the sake of adding content is less meaningful than producing well researched, well written content. With reflection comes insight - sometimes you have to consume a bit and then just mull it over in your head for a bit til a little light bulb goes off and you really just get it. Then you can write meaningful stuff.

I engage more with meaningful content than I do with pulpy, shallow drivel

Quality content is many orders of magnitude more valuable than just content. If I have a free day, I like to read all day, then spend the evening writing an article. Thanks for commenting. :)

Hey e...I do agree that being a consumer of words and a producer of words is always going to be a conundrum, whether the thing is a primary source of income or not.

However, my own feeling is that it is good to talk only when you have something useful to say. Producing and producing and producing a mountain of blather really has no value either.

And, in order to have something useful to say, thinking on all those words you consume does need to be a major factor in the equation. Pondering take time.

Perhaps the only solution is to learn how to be a free-diver who can get to the bottom of things really really fast. Or do little notes on the progress you make in your deeper ponderings that are interesting and useful to other people.

Right. Consumption must be first. Production and consumption are symbiotic.

There are any number of analogies that apply: If you do what you always do, you get what you always got, The hurrier you go, the behinder you get and 'the world is a bucket filled with all of the good things, do what you need to do, every day to earn your share!

It's very productive to take a break and just listen and consume. After all we have two ears, two eyes and only one mouth.

Indeed. Consumption must precede production.
