Blog Creation: Streamline Your Blog Writing in 5 Easy Steps

| February 15, 2009

Have you ever spent longer than you wanted to writing your blog entries? Blogs are a great way to gain authority in you field, but they can be quite time consuming…especially if you are trying to post almost every day.

These five tips will help you streamline your blog writing processes, freeing up your time for other pursuits.

1. Write a week’s worth of entries in one day. It can be difficult to find the time every day to write interesting blog entries. Save yourself the time and hassle by dedicating a good chunk of time to write a week’s worth of blog entries in one sitting. It may seem troublesome, but I assure you, once you start writing, things will flow freely and you’ll actually spend less time than if you’d written a single post every day.

2. Know and enjoy your subject. If you pick your niche only because of demand, you’re going to have a difficult time sounding genuine and writing interesting posts. However, if you understand your subject…and better yet enjoy it, then your blog posts will come easily and naturally without a whole lot of effort.

3. Keep a notebook for ideas. How many great blog posts have been written in your head while sitting in traffic only to be forgotten later? If you keep a notebook with you, you are able to jot down any great ideas as they come to you. It’s much easier to write a post when you’ve got a list of potential topics on hand.

4. Write using bullet points. People like to see lists and lists are easier to write. By using lists and bullet points in your writing, you are breaking things down to the important basics. People can easily scan your list for the main point. It’s better for your readers and easier for you.

5. Forget long posts. Not all of your posts should be 2000 word masterpieces. You might want to include some of those, but most people prefer shorter 500 word pieces when reading blogs. I know that when I am reading blogs, I begin to lose interest if a post is too long.

By applying these tips to your blog writing, you will find yourself quickly becoming more prolific. Maybe you’ll even have time to start another blog!
