It Is Nice When You Have Extra Articles At Your Disposal

Yes, my friend, it is truly a nice thing to have extra articles at your disposal.

And, why is that so?

Because it places you in the position of choosing the days and times that you would like to publish them on your blog.

If you are one of those bloggers who rely on having articles to publish, you will be most grateful for having extra articles at your disposal.

You Will Have To Write A Lot

The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that in order for you to have extra articles at your disposal, you will have to write a lot (And, it would be better for you if you did it willingly).

Do you know that there are bloggers who write at least two articles daily?

Hey, you should not be surprised about that fact because there are bloggers (like myself) who are serious about writing.

Also, there are legitimate reasons for writing more than one article daily; they range from:

  • Picking out the ones that you like the most for your blog.
  • Scheduling them to be published at a date and time in the future.
  • Having one ready to be pitched as a potential guest post.
  • Using one of those articles of yours to publish on another publishing platform; for example, Medium.

The more articles that you have at your disposal, the merrier things will be for you.

You Will Have To Make Some Sacrifices

Dear friend, if you strongly desire to have extra articles at your disposal, you will have to make some sacrifices; such as:

  • Curtailing the length of time that you view television programming.
  • Getting up an hour or two earlier in the morning with the sole purpose of getting your quota of writing done.
  • Doing a bit of writing sometime during the day as well as doing a bit of writing sometime during the evening (That means that you will be doubling down on your writing).

Do not worry, my friend. Your sacrifices will not be in vain; they will pay off in the end.

Store Those Extra Articles Of Yours Safely

It would be wise to store those articles that you wrote safely.

And, where could they be stored safely?

Those extra articles of yours can be stored safely on:

  • Your computer, tablet or smartphone.
  • A USB flash drive.
  • An external SSD.
  • Cloud storage.

I recommend storing those extra articles of yours in at least two places.

Why because if one source becomes corrupt or fails to store those articles, you can access them via another source; for example, if your computer with your articles stored on them crashes, you will have nothing to be worried about because you will have digital copies of those articles stored on an external SSD; which, of course, will be safely tucked away in a drawer.

Final Thoughts

Writing extra articles is not a walk in the park for someone who is not fond of writing or is unaccustomed to writing a lot.

In all fairness, writing extra articles would be most suited to the type of blogger who:

  • Has has a sincere love for writing.
  • Wants to make sure that they have articles to publish whenever they need to take a short hiatus from writing.
  • Needs to ensure that they have sufficient articles for their blog on WordPress and their side gig on Medium.
  • Writes guest articles for others.

And, in order to make any of those things possible, they will have to make sacrifices โ€• the types of sacrifices that will ensure that they have the time needed for them to accomplish their goal of writing extra articles.

They must also ensure that those articles of theirs are stored safely.

  1. Well done Renard. You have fully convinced me why I need to write articles and blogs for my niche which is fashion and style. I genuinely love blogging no matter what and it has become a part of my daily life, I am so attached to blogging I can’t let go because it has improved my personality and my writing skills.

    Thanks for the encouragement, have a fabulous weekend brother๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

  2. I do something like this too, but I kind of seek other writer’s permission to summarize an article I read that they wrote and I write about them.

    It is a win win situation I supppose, they author gets recognized through my posts and I dont have to get a headache to think of a topic to write all the time.

    Best part, I get extra knowledge too

  3. Almost everything I write which is intended for blogging goes into the Draft folder on the blog. I feel it makes sense to begin the composition using the block editor, if thatโ€™s how itโ€™s to be finally presented.

    I find it really effective when coming back to edit or rewrite, to move blocks up and down the page, or separate out parts of a paragraph into two or more blocks and delete the unnecessary parts. To think when the block editor first came to WP, we all complained about it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ Ian, if you write your blog post in Google Docs, you can save them there and cut them from there and paste them into the Block Editor (It works; each paragraph is recognized as its own block in the Block Editor).

      Yes, the Block Editor does have some advantages; such as switching around paragraphs (And, that is kind of cool).

      At first, we all complained about the Block Editor when it was first introduced to us.

      Today, many of us are comfortable using it.

      Thank you for participating in the discussion.

  4. Thanks for this Renard. It’s great that you take the time to go into these points in detail; to point us in the right direction. I’m not quite there yet, but working on it. I have a few posts in outline draft, but over time I’ll get them developed and have a little supply built up so I can schedule. My hope is to get 2 weeks ahead with scheduling. I’m trying to write a piece just now that is being elusive, it’s already been rewritten twice and I’m thinking of starting it over again. Maybe I should look at something else and give myself some distance before returning to this one

      1. Thanks Renard. Maybe elusive wasn’t the right word … I have the post written, I just keep seeing different ways of approaching it. But I’ll know when it’s ready to be shared

  5. I’m also thinking – I’d like to have the extra articles written so I can take time to do some blog ‘housekeeping’. As I’ve gained confidence and knowledge, there are functional aspects of blog management I want to explore and possibly tinker with. I want the space to explore that … maybe at the end of the year when I’m on holiday from classes

  6. I draft ahead of time but don’t schedule them. Mainly because I may want to make minor changes. I am retiring from contributing to another WordPress blog site where I have posted there since 2018.. There are over 200 posts now copied to my new blog ready for some tweaking and publishing. This has been a long time coming and I feel a sense of accomplishment about the extra posts waiting in the wings.

    I follow a blogger that posts 2 to 3 times daily, mostly about music. He types with one hand due to a stroke. His posts are quality and interesting. That’s dedication at its finest.

    Your profession is fascinating, Renard. Thank you for sharing with us.

  7. Hi, I just wanted to thank you. I have been in a bad place mentally for a long time and been desperate to get back I to writing but had hellish writer’s block. I’m not over it by any means but your blogs have inspired me to start writing my own blog. I’ve tried one in the past but for various reasons didn’t stick with it. Maybe this time will be different. Thank you again.
