Researching for content writing
Do we really believe that everything we write is original?
Many years ago I was undertaking a bachelor of business at Swinburne technical college in Melbourne Australia. This institution is now known as Swinburne University. One of the subjects I was taking was business law.
Business law is a very complex, ever-changing, topic. I was amazed when we were told we could take our text books into the exams with us.
I asked my lecturer why this was allowed because at high school we only went in with our brains and a pen.
He said something I've never forgotten. It's impossible for us to keep all the information we are required to learn in our heads, but it is possible to provide our own interpretations. The text books are merely a tool with which to activate our imagination.
When reading training at WA on content writing we are often told to make sure we don't copy others work.
But how to we make sure we don't do that?
No content will ever truly be original .
Ask yourself a different question. How do we actually learn about a certain topic?
We learn what to write through research, training, listening and experiencing other writers interpretations
Everything we write about we have learned from something or someone else.
Yes, if we're clever enough, we can use our own abilities to enhance what we have learned.
Don't be afraid to read what your competitors have written about your favorite topic.
Researching other blogs is still the most fundamental and comprehensive way to develop a better understanding of your own niche.
Do you realize that even the greatest scholars have learned from others?
None of what I've said should be interpreted as a reason to copy someone else's words.
You must always use your own interpretations. Put your own spin on the topic. Write the article using your own style.
Remember to use your research as a tool to activate your own imagination.
Once you learn to grasp how to leverage the teachings of others to enhance your own content writing ,then you will be well on the way to finding success at Wealthy Affiliate
