How To Be A Prolific Blog Writer

How To Be A Prolific Blog Writer

Time and again you have heard how Google has put a lot of emphasis on quality content creation. It therefore goes without saying that as a blogger you need to know how to approach blog writing.

As a blog writer you realize that the more quality content you publish, the more money you will make. This also applies to all types of writers; the more productive you are the better for you.

Blog writing has proved to be the best strategy of influencing peoples’ decision making process. Word of mouth is powerful but do you know that as a blog writer you are even more powerful?

The question that people fail to ask is, for someone to talk about your product, he or she must have been influenced to do so by someone else. It is the same ask asking, who influences the influencers?

Here is the answer; the internet has become the source of information. And what better way than becoming a blog writer and influencing people’s course of action.




For all these to happen, you have got to acquire writing skills and more importantly, you have to learn how to be productive. This is especially the case for people who blog for business purposes.

Nothing in life succeeds if you do not have a laid out plan. The same applies when it comes to blog writing. As a blog writer, you have to be ready to work for long hours and stretch your body and mind to its limit.

The reason being that, the more you manage to write, the higher your bank account will smile at you. At the same time, you have to publish articles that will make your audience take the desired action.

On this write up, let us discuss some important tips for writing that will ensure you perform to the maximum and still produce quality content.

Research comes first: Before you get down to writing, the first thing you need to do is gather information on what you will write about. If you are going to write more than one blog post, ensure you have researched on all the topics first.

Also included in the research process is gathering links that contain sources of your information. As a blog writer you know you have to support your points by linking back to other authority sites.

The idea here is to avoid been distracted once you get down to writing. Referring to other sites will require you to connect to the internet and that will distract your flow of writing.

It is recommended that after you have done your research; put that information on a sticky note where you can be referring as you compose your articles.

Read widely: This article has been influenced by several articles I have been reading over time. To be a good blog writer you have to be ready to read anything related to your niche.

As you read what others have written you get to learn new and better writing skills. You also get to learn from other peoples’ experience thus avoid doing similar mistakes that they did.

Read as many books and blogs as you can, this is the only way to become a prolific writer. Something you will note when you read widely is that ideas will flow freely once you put pen to paper.

The mind is a powerful organ that can store more information that you can dare think about. Therefore, as you read what others have written, your mind subconsciously stores this information. You will be amazed how content will flow when you begin writing your own articles.

Perform one task at a time: Unless you are a robot or some super human being it is always advisable to concentrate on one thing at a time. You cannot expect to come up with quality articles when you are writing and at the same time chatting with your friend on facebook.

As a blogger, your primary goal should be to generate content, all other things come second. Furthermore, ideas flow freely when you are focused on your writing. If there is something else that has to be done, first complete your article then, attend to other pressing issues.

This is a matter of prioritizing, knowing what you need to attend to first and so on. The only way for accomplishing a given task is to focus and make sure it’s completed.

Doing several things at the same time will only result in time wasting. Besides, by the end of the day you’ll probably discover nothing has been done and if you have completed the work, it will not be perfect.

Multitasking has been found to result in procrastination since tasks appear difficult to perform.

Write none stop: This strategy may not work for all people. Some people require to take breaks between as they work. But it also depends on the kind of work you do.

For me I discovered that once I get down to blog writing I prefer to go all the way until am done. Taking breaks chokes my ideas and when I get back to writing my mind becomes blank.

Especially when you want to really write many articles, it is best to write none stop. This entails writing for like 5 hours without stopping.

This idea will also work for you if you are a freelance writer. In freelancing, the more you write the more cash you will pocket.

But this might not be the case with other people. Some bloggers think and write better when they take rests.  Therefore, experiment and see what works best for you.

Work ambiance: Do you find it difficult to write? Then you need to check your work environment. There is nothing as distractive to a blog writer as noise from the surrounding.

Noise from children playing outside or music playing on radio is enough to distract your blog writing. If your surrounding is affecting your blogging it is advisable to try and relocate. You can go to your friend’s place that has better ambiance.

When you are writing you need to concentrate fully. Therefore, switch off your TV, Radio or anything that will affect the flow of your writing.

Take time to relax and do some workouts: This applies to everyone no matter what walk of life you come from or what you do. The only way to remain productive thus refresh your mind is through regular exercise.

By the way, you do not need to enroll in a gym in order to exercise; you can perform some simple workouts in the comfort of your bedroom.

Instead of going to the mall with your car or taking a cab, you can decide to take a walk. This is both for your general well being and more importantly it will make you a more productive blog writer.

It is true that you need to work hard in order to be a successful blogger but that does not mean you should not rest. In fact, the more you work the longer you should rest.

In your working schedule, you should also allocate time to rest. You can decide that you will only be working in the morning and resting in the afternoons. Or you can work a whole day and take a break the next day.

Remember, too much work with no play made Jack a dull boy. What will you achieve if you break down in the name of becoming successful?

Proofread after you are through with drafting: Believe it or not, proofreading before you are through with your blog writing can be very distractive.

In most cases, proofreading every paragraph you write will lead to loss of concentration and block flow of ideas. In addition, when you proofread a sentence after writing it you end up overlooking your mistakes.

This is because in your mind you know what you wanted to write but on paper the sentence could be reading something else. Trying to be faultless is the worst mistake you can make.

It is better to write your article to the end and only come back to proof read when you are done. As for me, once I’m through with writing my articles, I leave the house to attend to my other duties.

I then come back in the evening when my mind is fresh and I’m detached from what I wrote earlier. This is like having someone else proofreading my articles.

You can also ask your friend or someone in your household to proofread your work.

Conclusion: Blogging is fun as long as you have clear set goals. In order to be productive you need to be a focused blog writer. Success is guaranteed only when you put your mind to it.

I have stated my point, now I leave it to you to get down to work and become the best blogger who influences influencers by publishing quality blog articles.
