Creating Content For Your Blog The Easy Way

creating-content-for-your-blog-the-easy-way

All bloggers are faced with the perpetual task of creating content for their blogs (It is something that we bloggers need to do in order for our blogs to remain fresh and up-to-date).

Unfortunately, there are those people who find it very difficult to come up with new content for their own blog.

Today, I am going to share with you, my proverbial method to the madness ― my preferred way of creating content for my blog easily.

So, let us explore these simple techniques together.

Plan Out Your Blog Posts In Advance

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” ― Benjamin Franklin

Planning out your blog posts in advance prevents you from thinking to yourself, “What the hell am I going to write today?”

To be most straightforward, planning out your blog posts in advance helps you to save a lot of time.

Besides, wasting time is not an option (And, it would be wise to use the time that is available to you wisely).

All bloggers can plan their blog posts by:

  • Jotting down the ideas for their blog posts in a notepad.
  • Researching their chosen topic.
  • Utilizing a content calendar.
  • Creating an outline for their blog posts.

In addition to being a timesaver, planning out your blog posts helps you to be well-organized.

Do you ever plan out your blog posts in advance?

Write A Rough Draft Copy

“I hate first drafts, and it never gets easier. People always wonder what kind of superhero power they’d like to have. I wanted the ability for someone to just open up my brain and take out the entire first draft and lay it down in front of me so I can just focus on the second, third and fourth drafts.” ― Judy Blume

Some people find it rather difficult to write a rough draft copy for their blog post.

Truthfully speaking, the draft copy of your blog post is not meant to be perfect the first time around; its main purpose is for you to shape your ideas into words.

So, get lost in your writing and most importantly, have lots of fun while you are doing it.

Afterwards, you can go through the trouble of refining that rough draft copy of yours.

The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that all of the great bloggers have developed the habit of proofreading and editing their work before presenting it to their viewing audience.

So, never let the idea of creating a rough draft copy for your blog post intimidate you (You can think of it as an unpolished diamond ― something that is very valuable in spite of it being unfinished).

Always Believe In Your Ability To Get Your Quota Of Blogging Done

“Believe in yourself and have faith in your abilities! Without humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy.” ― Norman Vincent Peale

Dear friend, if I never believed that I could always create a blog post from scratch, I would find myself empty-handed where content creation is concerned.

Also, the more you do something is the better you get at it.

I have been blogging since 2008 (I have been doing it over and over since then; it has become second nature).

You might have a bit of doubt in your mind; especially if it happens to be your first time putting your first blog post together.

Your belief in your ability to create blog posts will strengthen once you have developed a solid track record for creating blog posts from scratch.

Believing in yourself helps greatly in the area of getting your quota of blogging done.

Work With A Schedule (Optional)

“By sticking to a schedule and not waiting for inspiration to hit I am assured of getting work done. No phone calls or other interruptions during work hours.” ― Frances Poole

It is a well-known fact that a lot of successful bloggers work with a schedule; they are the type of people who:

  • Research topics for their blog posts on specific days.
  • Create draft copies for their blog posts on certain days.
  • Proofread and edit their blog posts on specific days of the week.
  • Publish content on their blog on a certain day (or days) of the week.

It all breaks down to developing positive habits ― the kind of habits that end up working in your favour.

Once you develop those habits, you will find it hard to deviate from them.

Keep Yourself Abreast With The Latest Information

“I always say that keeping abreast of science should never be seen as a chore. It should be something you do naturally. I don’t sit there reading ‘New Scientist,’ putting post-it notes next to ideas.” ― Alastair Reynolds

If your blog deals with technology, you will need to be abreast of the latest technology (The same thing applies to any topic that you have chosen to blog about).

Therefore, you need to be in a constant state of learning.

Also, the more that you learn about your niche or your chosen topic, is the better you will be at serving the needs of your readers.

The more you know, is the more you can write about!

Love What You Do

“If you love what you do, it isn’t your job, it is your love affair.” ― Debasish Mridha

There is a high probability that you are going to stick with your blog if you love blogging.

Besides, engaging yourself for long periods in something that you detest will feel like a severe case of torture.

When you love blogging, you do not mind engrossing yourself fully in the content creation process.

Do you love blogging?

Wrapping Up

Dear friend, as you have learned, creating content for your blog the easy way involves:

  • Planning out your blog posts in advance.
  • Writing a rough draft copy of your blog post.
  • By always believing in your ability to get your quota of blogging done.
  • Working with a schedule (An optional step).
  • Keeping yourself abreast with the latest information.
  • Loving what you do.

  1. I feel you have to love blogging to reap the rewards and experience fulfillment. I plan most of my posts (especially the weekly prompts) ahead of time. I keep several in first draft mode and then I go back and tweak them to my liking.

    I always enjoy your valuable tips, Renard, and thank you for sharing.

  2. You can never go wrong with planning in advance and working with a schedule. When I look back at my first few posts there were so many mistakes. For the last few weeks, I’ve been fixing those posts and I can definitely say I’ve improved a lot. When you’ve been blogging for so long you kinda know the dos and don’ts.

  3. excellent post once more Renard. I never run short of content in truth – but a few things have helped me …. 1] well l now produce less daily content so my already long list is now longer anyway and ‘ll burn out soon or dry up quickly, 2] l run series which l can insert day to day thoughts in and 3 – l use a content whiteboard married up to an Excel worksheet for the entire year, so l can easily see at a glance what l can write about and more importantly what l want to write about .

    i have a new blog starting next month which is alternative content so again, l will always have something to write about and it is to only produce 2/4 posts a week on two days – so that helps also.

  4. Thanks for this. Honestly, I doubted myself if I would really do blogging. I love to write and to post contents most often on social media like facebook, but since I have read information about Word Press, now I have the opportunity to create more contents. Of course, I thank you for sharing your ideas about blogging, this really helps a lot. ❤️

    1. 🙂 Hi, Sai. Welcome to “Renard’s World”.

      Now, I am trying my best to figure out what you meant by asking me about how you can also post your blogs.

      Anyway, in addition to publishing content on your WordPress blog, you can share the links to your blog posts via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Mix (I truly hope that answers your question).
