Imagine committing to a daily blogging schedule, that means you not only have 7 blog posts due each week, you have approximately 30 each month and 365 posts a year. That’s a lot of blogging and you don't have to post every single day to have a successful blog. However, it is a great blogging schedule (I use this blogging calendar to plan out my posts and content ideas) and with a few tips and tricks, you can easily create that much blog content and more! #1 Know that there are many types of blog content. It doesn’t have to be an argumentative essay. You can write:
- How to’s
- Pros & Cons
- You can also create a blog series, write one longer article and break it up into smaller parts for several posts.
#2 Audio and video messages. Instead of worrying about what to write, sit down at your webcam and create a quick audio or video message. Make sure it has a purpose and that you’re easy to see and understand. And because these messages shouldn’t be longer than a few minutes, you can create almost a month’s worth of content in an hour.
#3 Let someone else write it. Ghostwriters, PLR – Private Label Rights, and Guest Bloggers are great for filling in the content gaps.
#4 Repurpose your content. If you have reports and ebooks handy that you own the rights to or have written yourself, repurpose sections of this content to create new posts.
#5 Fill in some days with questionnaires, surveys, contests and the like. These are interactive posts that require you to create the form but the rest is done by your readers.
Blogging doesn’t have to be difficult and I have found that it actually helps to plan out a general idea of content themes in advance so that when you have the time you can create your posts and content in advance.
