What would your readers want to know about? Do you have a clear picture as to who your chosen demographic is? Do you know what makes them 'tick'?

Until you know what your audience wants, it's difficult to produce content which will resonate with them. Spend some time thoroughly researching your niche and see what other sites similar to yours are talking about.

I consider myself a decent writer and still recall what I learned in college freshman English ... had probably my most favorite instructor of many undergraduate and graduate courses. What you are saying is remarkably similar.

I got A's in English, which was kind of unusual for an engineering student. You know ... I are an engineer. But I was never really quick since I focused on quality writing, not just getting it done. If the assignment was a 500 word theme, I almost always turned in a 700 to 800 word themes ... sometimes more.

This writing style has not helped much here, since improved SERPS and increased site traffic seem to respond best to what I call "volume writing". Do you have any tips for volume writing that don't compromise the writing tips here?
Reply
JudeP Premium
I'm a little unclear as to exactly what you are asking - do you want to write 'volume' or not? Let me know and I can better answer :)

NWTDennis Premium
Yes ... I'd like to increase my current post output (2x to 4x) without increasing the time required to do so by 2x to 4x.
Reply
JudeP Premium
The same principles would apply whether you are writing 2 posts or 4. It does take time unfortunately, unless you can afford to outsource.

Great advise Jude, maybe that is why I have not been writing blogs as often as I would like to. I just did not know how to go about it and not too good with words. Better at leaving comments for a while, but I will work on it.
