How to write content like a pro and still have a life! | Blog tips

by Catherine Alexandra - Internet Marketing Success on January 31, 2012

There ‘s no shortage of information available about how to write content or offering blog tips.

I’ve found an endless stream of questions about this subject from online marketing newcomers, so I wanted to offer my personal top blog tips to write content like a pro (and still have a life)!

Want to write content like a pro?? If so, these blog tips are for you!

I receive questions all the time from newcomer bloggers who ask me how I’m able to blog so consistently and keeping the vibe fresh while making it useful and engaging for readers.

write contentIt’s a balancing act to do this, but I practice a few blog tips consistently and find that if I keep to this little checklist, I’m always able to write content with flow while having an abundance of ideas to share on a regular basis.

Approaching the task of how to write content systematically provides worthy benefits, one of which is speed and increased productivity!

The last thing people want is to have to sit behind a desk all day to write content that is good.

I’ve heard stories of people spending hours on end just to crank out one little article that may or may not be well-written.

Take heed of these blog tips and you’ll find your speed and ease to write content significantly improves with a few minor tweaks.

Blog tip #1: Pre-planning helps you write content like a pro…

This is the logical place to start when you are sitting down to write content for your blog. It sounds simplistic, but this tiny step is one way to open up creative floodgates and  outline content which may be used in a series. Believe it or not, this is easy to do and is also time effective.

Another great element to this blog tip is that you won’t forget anything if you keep your ideas recorded. If you’re trying to write content regularly, you know that your ideas could be gold if you put them to good use!

Let's declutter! Chop chop!

Blog tip #2: Declutterize…all of it.

Easier said than done? Well maybe, but don’t resist it and you may find that it’s much easier than you think!

Begin by tidying up your work area.

Why?

Well, a wise man once told me, “A confused and cluttered mind takes no definitive action.”

If you’re too distracted you’ll inevitably work less efficiently than if you were able to focus. Clutter is a distraction, get rid of it tout de suite!

Blog tip #3: Disconnect.

Yes, I did say the “D” word: d-i-s-c-o-n-n-e-c-t!

…not permanently…just til you finish what you’re doing.

Here’s why…

Most people have NO CLUE how much time they waste due to the changing of gears which is required to toggle between email, facebook and twitter messages, instant messengers, and a variety of other things. (Think how much faster you can get to a destination if you drive straight through rather than having to stop at every light along the way.)

(I did an article, “Busy Doesn’t Mean Productive,” where I explain how the human brain works and why it’s so vital for us to stay “on task.”)

It’s easy to become seduced by updates popping up every few minutes or so. Sometimes it’s best to “unplug” from the internet until a task has been finished.

I’ve personally found that I’m able to write content much more effectively when I’m not being interrupted in my thought-process.

Blog tip #4: Consolidate your time and go freestyle

If you follow blog tips 1-3, you’ll find yourself in a position to take advantage of your clutter-free workspace and mindspace. Now that you’re in the right place to write content, go for it freestyle.

Let yourself write and capture any creative bursts you have in this one sitting.

You may find that you write content in a volume great enough to chunk it down into smaller pieces which can be rolled out over a series of articles, as I mentioned in  Blog tip #1.

It pays to be organized because one “sit down” could yield as many as 4-5 (or even more) blog posts! This is a highly effective way to write content!

Remember you only need somewhere in the neighbourhood of 400-600 words per blog post! Check out this free word count tool that will help you slice up your writing into multiple articles by counting up your words for you. Microsoft word is also great to use when you write content because it automatically does a word count.

Blog tip #5: Employ technology to mind your time. 

The mind works in some mysterious ways. When given goals, it does its best to achieve results. Setting time specific goals can help you to be more effective when you’re sitting down to write content.

I was introduced to a fantastic and free tool called e.ggtimer by a blogger friend named Nicky Price.

It works similarly to a standard egg timer, but you set it up  in your browser. Set a time goal to write your content and get to task. You’ll be delighted to see how your mind works to achieve your goal!

Blog tip #6: Incentivize!

Set a reward for yourself to incentivize the act of sitting down to write content.

The mind likes to be rewarded! If you do something simple like planning a small indulgence for having completed your blog content, you’ll work more diligently to wrap it up efficiently.

Some reward ideas may be as simple as treating yourself to a coffee date with a friend or a cocktail with associates. Be creative setting rewards. They don’t have to be extravagant, but make sure they’re juicy enough to warrant you getting busy. 

Blog tip #7: Give it a rest!

Breaks are not to be underestimated!

If you’re following this simple 7 blog tip formula, you may find it’s easy to become immersed because it’s such an expressive (and FUN) way to work.

Brief intervals of break-time will keep you refreshed and help you to get more done!

Break-time is a nice reward to insert into the time you devote to write content. The e.ggtimer makes setting break-time easy.

When you apply these blog tips, you may find that everything works in concert when we take a little time to prepare before we sit to write content. If you previously felt overwhelmed you can now feel much more calm about what you’re doing because you’ve eliminated the usual time drains that make content writing seem arduous.

Great tips, Cat!

I carry a notebook around with me and jot down ideas as I get them. I also think about my current week blog post several days before writing it during my downtime such as driving, washing dishes, or waiting in line. This helps me write my post a lot faster when I sit down to write.

It was also recently suggested to close all tabs on your web browser and do only one thing at a time. This suggestion made a lot of sense to me, and I’m going to give it a try when I write my next post.

Have a grateful day!

That is a great idea to have a notebook with you. I can’t tell you how many times I have an idea, did not write it down. Then it was time to sit down to write, I would go blank.

Hi Cat,

I had to laugh at your phrase “tout de suite” I am wondering how many people reading this post understood what it means. Well, being borne in France, I did :)

Those are great tips you give here. Some that I use myself. When I don’t really want to do something, I promise to reward myself when I’m done. Taping or writing my ideas as they come is crucial for me because ideas tend to go for good once they are gone.

Congratulations on your guest post, great work here!

Have a great one!

Hey Cat…ahahah "tout de suite" You know I'm French? That's a great article, dear. I agree with them all (the tips). Making sure you capture ideas as they come is vital, because an idea, once gone it's gone. Rewarding oneself is a good mind motivator to move forward and finish the task. Giving oneself a specific time to accomplish the task really works too. Thanks for all those great tips!

Hey Cat,

Well what can I say but WOW! It’s amazing at how much of this I relate to and use. I use Evernote to store my ideas when I am outside and have that ‘light bulb’ moment for a blog post. It also links with your home system too. Don’t you feel you get them a some strange times?

Haven’t done a lot of freestyle writing until just recently. I am a big resources person and love trying out new products help with productivity. I recently installed iA Writer on my Mac and what a difference it makes to your writing environment. When you go full screen it shuts of all distraction and allows you to concentrate on exactly whats important. Your writing.

Thanks Cat great post, thanks for sharing!

Hi Daniel,

It’s great to see you here at Debbie Clark’s! Thanks for coming by to check out my guest blog here and chime in!

I’m glad to know that much of this content resonates with you! I’m a HUGE Evernote fan, like you. I use it religiously and just love how easy it is to keep my notes and brainstorms organized with it, even on the go!

And yes, I do find that my epiphanies occur at some of the most bizarre moments. I receive a lot of these thoughts before I doze off to sleep, but have also found myself getting great ideas in the shower. The only place I can’t seem to get Evernote to work is in the shower because I don’t want to ruin my smartphone, or course. I will have to give some thought to a way to better capture my “shower epiphanies.”

I had never heard of iA Writer til you just mentioned it. That sounds like a helpful tool right there. Forced focus is probably what a lot of people need these days. It’s just uncommon for us to do it naturally anymore due to the way that technology has evolved and how constantly “plugged in” we are to everything. Thanks for that tip, I’m definitely going to check it out!!

Much thanks for the great comment and for supporting my guest blog! I hope you and Debbie can stay in touch too. She’s a real go-giver and definitely an up-and-comer in the blogging community! :)

Hi Cat,

Thanks for the list of tips to becoming more productive, although I did think you’d been peeping at my work area ;)

Every few days i have a tidy up and clear my scraps of paper out the way. My trouble is that I have a small desk and only one working area which is for the keyboard until I have to make notes then the keyboard gets pushed back and one of my 2 A4 notebooks comes into play. Then as soon as I need to type again the notebook has to go to the side and sit on top of the other one.

I also try to keep a journal of my daily activities as I find this helps keep me focused. Not only that but i can monitor my what I’ve done and if something starts playing up (plugins for example) I can go back to my journal and see when i installed it and see if the dates tie up.

Thanks for the link to the egg timer, I’ll give it a go but as I’m not a natural writer I fear that I may get flustered when trying to rush to beat a timer. Time will tell so i’ll give it a go Cat.

Thanks for the tips :)

Best of luck, Barry

Dear Barry,

Thanks so much for checking out my Guest Blog here at Debbie Clark’s!

I didn’t mean to let the cat out of the bag about having been peeping in on your workspace. Doh! Guess I’m busted now! ;)

I used to have a bit of a smaller desk in my home workspace too, but I made the executive decision to upgrade over the holidays. I had a “pile-up” issue going on with notebooks and post-it’s that sounds similar to what you have described. It sure does have a way of accumulating over the course of a day or a week if left unattended!

I like the idea of keeping the journal. Have you seen evernote.com before? This is mostly what I use these days because it’s highly portable (they make smartphone apps that sync your journal over to your PC).

I hope that the e.ggtimer is something useful for you. I was a bit resistant to use it as a focus tool for writing, but have found that it’s been beneficial for me so I have been using it pretty consistently as of recent. Worst case scenario, it’s a great way to schedule in some breaks. I have found that my eyes are much happier when they get intervals to relax from staring at screens! lol

Hope you’re having a fantastic week, Barry!

Wow Catherine I almost did not agree with Disconnect,I had to read it once again and you are right
that is what is stopping me sometimes.I now understand that I have to finish what I have starten with
before doing something else.
A blog post or article can be written in a minimum of time,and when you take the step to write as a pro
it becomes FUN.

Have a great day

Hi Sandy,

Great to meet you! Thanks for checking out my Guest Blog here at Debbie Clark’s!

I will be honest and admit to you that I also had a good deal of resistance about “disconnecting” when it was first recommended to me. Nowadays it seems that multitasking is such a HUGE part of our lives that it feels a bit odd to be focused exclusively on one task at a time.

I’m glad to hear that you’re willing to give it a shot though! Being 100% focused to task cuts the time investment into a small fraction of what it may have otherwise been. This is something that becomes HUGE over time.

Awesome to get connected with you here. I’m going to check your blog out and hope that we can stay connected!

Best regards,
Cat Alexandra

Thanks for sharing your writing tips Cat. I have used or still use most of them. Not enough can be said about taking frequent breaks when it comes to being online. I often find my best ideas come to me when I am doing something creative.

The weather has been nice where I live the past couple of days so I decided to get some yard work in. While I am busy cleaning up the sticks and leaves all kinds of great post ideas begin to funnel through me.

Hey Justin,

Great to see you here. Thanks for checking out my guest blog here at Debbie Clark’s.

I had a feeling you’d be one to know when to insert breaks to keep life and business balanced. I also find that I get some good ideas when I’m kind of in a flow of some kind. Being outside in nature always seems to help it out a bit too.

I hope that you’ll come and visit Debbie again soon. She’s an up and comer! :)

Producing quality content every time will build trust with your visitors. If you do that, eventually the search engines will view your site favorably. Hopefully, the search engines will continue to get better at finding ways of identifying high-quality content. Thanks for the tips!

Well hi, Kevin! It’s very nice to meet you!

I think you make a very worthy point here! Consistent production of quality content is surely a way to get people to trust you! I love how the search engines (namely Google) are constantly improving how they score websites. It keeps us on our toes and because of that, we can constantly improve ourselves and up the bar on what it is we’re putting out there.

I disconnected and now I'm driving straight through without stopping. Breaks are awesome…refreshing your mind. Gotta try that timer to.

These are great tips Cat! Thank you, :-)

I can so relate to the one about pre-planning. As a content creator, I like to create content regularly. However, sometimes it can be difficult to keep thinking of topics to write about. There are times when I will think of a topic, but forget to write it down, and yes you guessed it, I then can’t remember what it was about. However, when I think of a topic and right it down straight away, it is so helpful because I can now write about it.

It’s nice to hear the best tips from others who regularly write content, such as yourself. Pre-planning makes it all go round for me too! Have you ever heard of Evernote, Hiten? This is what I use so I don’t forget my ideas as they come up. I find that sometimes I get a really good idea when I’m really relaxed and about to fall asleep. lol I love using Evernote because it’s an application that syncs from my smartphone to my computer, so I can just pick up my smartphone and record a voicenote or type it down. It’s all saved right there and accessible online whenever I want it. This one great way to save ideas for later! I think I may have to write up a blog on this one actually!

This is a great article and I am very guilty of having a slightly disorganized desk (and probably mind). I have found when I am very limited for time with lots of tasks to do, I can suddenly become very efficient when I switch off the distractions (mainly skype, email and FB) and then flick on e.ggtimer.com and just the thought that this is running in the background is enough to make my hyper productive! – I must do more of it!!

Great tips Cat!

Dear Nicky,

It’s really easy for things to become cluttered on your desk when you work as diligently as I know you do! No shame in that, but I bet that if you experience going from clutter to no clutter, you’ll note a measurable difference in how your mind “feels.”

I am a very organized person who believes every little thing has it’s specific place, but even still, I have to work to keep my cutter to a minimum due to my thick schedule and the fact that I have multiple projects running simultaneously.

I loved your e.ggtimer recommendation, so all thanks to you for sharing a new way to “keep the time!” I have a similar experience to yours when I know that there’s a time limit I’ve given myself. Our minds give us more of what we’re requiring of them and with a little direction they do their best to meet our goals!

So glad you enjoyed the blog tips! Thanks for the great comment!

Hey Cat,

I so loved this! I think disconnecting is so important. For example, I have been meaning to finish my work for the past two hours but I keep shifting among the million tabs I have open right now! I still have to learn to log off and do work! That said, you might need to do research online but save it so that you don’t keep surfing endlessly!

I have these little post its and a diary that I carry around and when an idea works I just note it down and work on it later. Though many ideas are trashed; at least I have something to begin with when I sit down to write a post.

Also, after writing a post I make it rest a while before hitting the publish button! Always better to wait for some time before diving right in! But yes, sometimes when I am very excited about a post, I just hit go!

This has been very interesting :) Thanks!

Dear Hajra,

Thanks so much for the great comment and feedback! :) I’m really happy that you enjoyed these blog tips!

The internet provides us with so many opportunities to enrich ourselves that it’s really easy to get buried under tabs in an attempt to multitask! You’re definitely not alone in that!

I love that you use post its and a diary to keep your ideas collected for later use. I personally do that, but with an electronic program called Evernote. Evernote is fun because you can use it on your smartphone or your computer. You can sync all of your notes and even record them by voice. This little thing keeps me organized so I don’t lose any great ideas that occur to me at odd times.

I appreciate you sharing your wisdom and insights here, Hajra! Thanks again for checking us out here at Debbie Clark’s blog. – She’s got a great place here that is really up and coming and I hope that you 2 may stay in touch and that we can too!

I personally think that even if people were to ignore EVERYTHING else I’ve shared except for #3, they could increase their productivity in a gigantic way.
