Content is King - but. Don't watch the word count
I've not posted for a while, however being part of the SWAG group, I've learned so much in the 3 weeks since we commenced, that I feel compelled to write - and it's also one of the tasks - to post a WA blog. :-)
This is just a simple thing but it has helped me to write fluently and consistently.
We have all heard that Content is King and that we should aim for at least 1000 words (or is it 1500) for each post.
Before being invited to be part of the SWAG group, I was writing a post - yes a SINGLE post - every 2 weeks or so and I found it so hard to do and find 'stuff' to write about.
I kept on watching the word count in my WordPress admin area and when it hit 1000 words, I was elated! I started to think of ways to end my post.
I'm proud to say that I have - as part of the challenge - yes, I call it challenge - sorry Kyle - completed 3, yes THREE posts each week.
We need to have completed at least 12 posts during the 1st month challenge.
So far, I've completed 7 posts and will complete 2 more by the weekend with the remaining 3 'keyword researched' ready for next week.
My word count for my posts are averaging out to 2000+ and I now no longer look at the word count. In fact, I'm enjoying the journey and I love writing my blog posts.
I'd love to hear about your experiences.
Are you watching the word count or is that no longer a bother?.
I'd love to know.
