A Few Tips To Help The New Members In Content Creation
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.
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
