It’s important to make sure that you are constantly producing new content for your readers, so they know you’re blog is active. Many times you’ll get tired of constantly producing content which can delay your content writing process. This can even effect your user engagement so it’s important to be active at all times. Over the years, I have been consulting many bloggers on how to write content constantly and consistently adding to the overall growth of their blog. It important to note that adding content to your blog several times a month is a great sign to Google. It will get your blog indexed more quickly and have you ranking for keywords within the SERP’s. The important thing to focus on is creating “high” quality content which is going to be the backbone of search engines for years to come especially after the recent Google updates.
Here are some important productive writing skills which you can apply to your daily blogging schedule.
Create a Schedule
People often say that creating a schedule is motivation alone because you have taken a proactive role into doing something. It’s time for you to figure out the best writing time for you and how often you are looking to write for the week. For example, if you are creative during the morning and have loads of energy then it might be a good idea to start writing down your ideas during the morning. Next, you can even figure out how often you would like new content to be posted on your blog. It’s a good idea, depending, on your blog to produce 1-2 pieces per week however keep it at a minimum of 4 high quality content posts per month.
Once, you have sorted out a content schedule then you can proceed to the next strategy which will help you focus on creative ideas.
Write Down Ideas
People get inspiration at different times so it’ll be a good idea that you keep a paper and pen with you. You never know when you might have a writing idea and it will be a good idea to instantly write it down. I know as a blogger, that when I’m out interacting with people, I’ll have random ideas which pop into my mind with some of them being awesome content for my blog. Many people have different thinking patterns so be sure to be ready to write them down right away.
Once you have written down some awesome content ideas, you can log into the backend of your blog and create “new posts” so they are saved there just in case you lose the paper list. Next, you can even set a publish date next to each one so you know when a new blog post is set to be published. Every time you log in, it can very motivational to see you have a bunch of awesome ideas ready to be produced and published over the next several weeks.
Break It Down
Many times people get tired of writing 2000+ words because it can be overwhelming so it’s important to make sure you stay focused. A great way to stay on track is to breakdown your content writing so that you are writing high quality content over 2-3 days. It will be much easier to produce 500-600 words per day compared to producing 2000+ words daily. This way you don’t get tired writing and don’t become anxious. For example, when I first started writing, I had focused enormously on “high” quality content and this meant writing long in-depth content before publishing. However, I was in a hurry to produce so it tired me out writing so much in “1” attempt. However,
I read a few blogs that taught me an awesome strategy which I am applying today. I figured that I would like to post 1 high quality blog post per week so decided to write 500 words per day. This meant after 4-5 days, I would have written 2500 words which is awesome and would cover most of my topic. It’s a great way to stay focused and write content which resonates with my readers.
Create an Outline
Sometimes the delay in your writing happens because you don’t have a clear cut writing plan. If you can create an outline of what you need to write about it can take the pressure away from writing content and streamline the entire approach. This means that you can create content much quicker and be organized in your thoughts. Start by coming up with a topic idea then writing down the sub-headings you’ll like to cover. You can even write down a word count next to each so that you know the target word count you are looking to complete. However,
Many people will find that FREE writing from the topic of their heads will be better for them but if you like to have an organized plan then start by creating a complete outline of your writing with an introduction, body and conclusion.

Ask For Help
I can’t count the number of people I have met you are working like a team producing unique content which creates a buzz online. If you are working at producing content, you can ask for help from someone you is also an avid blogger. What does this do?
This cuts down the amount of time you will need to invest per day writing content which can take enormous stress off your mind. If you are trying to produce 2-3 awesome blog posts per week for your blog then this strategy can work very well at punching out words and content at a steady but sufficient rate. The key is to find someone to work with who understands your writing style and can work at the same rate you would like them to so that you can stay active.
