A Few Tips To Help The New Members In Content Creation

Last Update: June 22, 2019

As I keep saying and I know I am starting to sound like a broken record now, when I first joined WA, I was afraid of writing and when I heard that I should not post any blog post on my website that's less than 1000 words, I was really stressed out.

Don't be Afraid You Will Get There

There was no way I could find so many things to say, that's what I told myself, OK, so I am a very talkative person, actually I have gotten in trouble a few times when I was a child for talking too much lol but when it came to putting pen to paper, or in this case, keypad to words, things got a bit scary.

But with time and practice, my writing has gotten much better if I may say so myself. I don't sweat it so much these days, I can easily put together a post in a very short time, although sometimes it does take longer, but I do get there.

So for any new member reading this, if you are struggling to write blog posts for your website, try using the Keyword Rich Content template, Just go to site content and instead of starting a blank page, choose the template.

Using The Template Really Helps You In your Writing.

I mean by giving you 5 headings, it makes you think harder about the material you are going to put to fill up the field. And once you start writing you will find that within no time you will reach the 1000 word mark.

So I say depending on the subject of your article fill out the 5 headings and then just keep working on each heading to fill out that space with content and then before you know it you will be down to conclusion

Also by using the template, you don't have to worry about whether your content is structured properly. Another tip that I would give is to install the free version of Grammarly, it will help you with the spelling and other things. I find it works very well with the spell checker that you get on site content.

If you check your content and then after publishing you click edit in Word Press, then you use Grammarly to check again, that way you will not miss any thing.

Another tip is to read other peoples questions here at WA, I have learned a lot just by reading people's questions and the answers they get about content creation.

My other tip is to read articles on Google that are within my niche especially those that are ranking well, you well get to see how the more experienced writers are writing and get some pointers.

Take A Break


I know that some people might not agree with this because I have seen many who recommend writing nonstop until you reach your targeted word count, but for me I find that if I have really run out of things to add on my post, I save it and take a break and do something else.

I do this because I tried once to just keep going when I had run out of things to say, and the result was some low quality writing that I ended up deleting which took me back to where I had run out of things to say.

So for me, if I find that I have really run out of things to say, I usually take a break, do other things to reset my mind, and then I get back to the post with a clear mind and go thorough my research again about the post and then I continue writing.

This method I find works best for me, if the method you are using is working for you, then I say stick with it, you don't have to try mine, I am just putting it out there just in case somebody finds it useful.

My conclusion.

Content creation is the center of our business and we must work hard to perfect our craft, and that is why I am always trying to find tips on how to improve my content creation.

My motivation is the thought that no one was born knowing anything, its by process of learning and practicing that one gets perfect at something, so I believe by learning and putting what we learn into practice, we can achieve our goals. Oh, wow! I almost sound smart speaking like this lol

Anyway, I would like to hear your views, do you have tips to share? please leave them below on the comment section.

Thank you for your time

This is a great post Rose and a must for everyone really, not just newcomers. Even the more seasoned writers could do with a reminder. It's easy to get in a rut, not realising that by going back to some simple techniques, normal service can be resumed. Five headings is only 200 words per section to get you to the magic 1k. You can even create your own template if you find a structure you enjoy working within.

That's a good idea Twack, to create one's own template, for now, I find the one provided is working very well for me if I find my post is long I usually just add more headings.

Although I have to admit I had stopped using it for a while but then recently I just went back to it because I find it makes things easier plus when you get near 1000 word count there is a notification that comes up telling you how great you are and how you are about to finish strong lol makes me feel wonderful and makes me smile I am stupid like that :)

Great blog and ideas, Rose!
Structuring your content with the template headings really does make it much easier and more manageable! I agree!!
And, yes! If you need a break, take it!! Being rested and in a good state makes all the difference in your content writing!!
Thanks Rose!!

Hi Rose. Great tips!
I agree with you about taking a break. Sometimes my mind goes blank, I needed time out. I feel refresh after a cup of coffee, or two lol.
And the template and Grammarly! It is super helpful. It's so much easier to write my content.

Yes taking a break I find helps me to reset my brain and find new ideas about my content, but if I keep pushing, I will either go blank as you mentioned, or I end up typing some useless words

Thanks Rose. We all struggle with content creation at first. People need to know that they are not the only ones who have this problem. Nor do they need to feel inadequate just because they have difficulties writing.
It is always good to use the template that was so carefully laid out for our benefit. Your so right.
I still use it today most of the time.
Your a great help to WA and to anyone who wants to put in their best effort to succeed.

I like this very much it will be a big help for a lot of people. I have never been good at writing at all. But I am getting much better now at it.

Here are some thing i do. I will ask other have they tryed what I'm am writing about. If so I'll jot down a few thing. It give me more stuff to talk about.

I will also try and get what ever product and give a real true review on it. If it my passion. Then it much easier to write about.

Thanks for the Tip's
