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.

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.
