Much to their dismay, many people find they are just not great writers. They struggle to get the words down on paper and it takes them forever to do so. This is not good for blogs, because blogs need new content added constantly. If this sounds like you, keep in mind there are ways around writing the content.
One such way is to post articles from article directories such as EzineArticles. Yes, you do need to post the article without making changes and you must keep their bio and live link intact, but it might be really valuable content for your readers. If you’re worried about duplicate content, add your own paragraphs about the article at the beginning and end of the post.
Another idea is to ask for guest posts. There are plenty of experts in your field who would be happy to share their knowledge on your blog. Make sure the post is original to your site and can’t be found anywhere else.
Try using high quality PLR. Make it unique by adding a brief personal story, examples, tips, and additional information your readers might be interested in. PLR can give you a lot to work with, just add to it.
Ask another blogger if you can add their excellent post to your site with a link back. Give your thoughts and praise at the beginning. Or, with permission, just quote large chunks of it and offer your opinions.
Interview an expert and get it transcribed. That way you’ll have a podcast and the written word in your post.
If it’s the transition from your thoughts to paper that’s the problem, consider using Dragon Naturally Speaking or similar where you say what you want to say and it turns it into words on paper.
Come up with a great big question and ask 3-5 experts for their answer and experiences with it. Put it altogether and you’ve got an experts post. You can do this pretty regularly with different questions and different experts.
Once a week you can do a summation of the 5 best blog posts you read that week. List the blogs, the blog post title (with link) and a short paragraph about why you liked it. This is pretty easy to do and it helps build relationships with the other bloggers as they will be pleased to be included in your favorite blog posts.
Lastly, you can always hire a ghostwriter to write you a post. This could get expensive so consider doing this when you want a big post, one that gets tweeted about and maybe goes viral.
Not everyone likes to write. If that’s you, use these ideas for great content that you’ve not had to write much, if any, of yourself.
