This Writing Technique is Rocking My World!

Last Update: June 19, 2013
As I was going through the "Get Started Here" training during my first free week at Wealthy Affiliate, I came to the day where the action step was to write the first article for my new site. The training talked about the length of the article and of course using a good keyword (but not overusing any SEO) and pretty much left it at that -- go write an article!

I left a comment that I was hoping to get more tips on actually writing articles and how to do it well and quickly in the training, that writing has always been where I stumble... and some great community members pointed me to some other resources.

I did some reading and then came across this absolute gem of a technique:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/authoring-writing-content/a-blind-strategy-for-writing-content

Mind. Blown.

I sat down this morning and cranked out a 1200 word article in 15 minutes.

15 minutes, friends. This would normally have taken me over an hour, maybe two. Maybe days as I would get discouraged, walk away, come back, waste time... you know the drill It's the reason why I have tine to even write a blog post about it. I closed my eyes and started typing. I even knew when I was making mistakes or my sentences didn't flow together well -- I just kept going. And kept going.

Kyle talks a lot about really writing everything that needs to be said in an article so that your visitors don't click off to another site looking for more information -- and this process makes it SO much easier to do that. Editing as you go makes writing very tiring, for me at least, and I found that I would get drained before I could write all that I wanted to write. My perfectionism just got in the way, over and over.

This has been THE major stumbling block for me in my internet marketing journey. I know, and I've known all along, that great content is the way to success, but it has always been SO hard for me to get that content cranked out. I got so discouraged about this and looked on in wonder at people who could build websites and just pour out articles again and again.

This is a HUGE turning point for me. Huge.

I know a lot of people use voice dictation software but many times I work at night while my family is sleeping, or in the early mornings, or even at Starbucks where I don't want to be speaking out loud. So this really, really works for me.

Try it. It may seem goofy and you might have to correct typing mistakes, but IT WORKS.

Thank you, Kyle, As far as I'm concerned, this alone was worth the price of my first month of Wealthy Affiliate!

Hi there!! Let me know how it goes - I'm really interested. The closing my eyes and imagining a conversation with a friend have really, really changed this whole game for me. I can finally write more content, AND not have it be stuffy and formal sounding. Good luck!

Hi there, if you copy and past the link above (the line that starts with http:// up there, you'll find it. Or, you can type "blind strategy for writing content" into the WA search bar at the top of your dashboard, where it says "What are you looking for?" Hope it works for you, too!

why does it say "mark as spam" on most of the reviews on the starter page?

HI there, I'm sorry I don't know the answer to that... I've never seen the "mark as spam" that you're talking about. Maybe you could go ask in the live chat?

Hi Kymee, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I know I also just need to sit down and do the writing, and it gets easier with time, but this eyes closed thing really just made everything so much easier.
