Friday tips – a 5 for 1 bonus: Having trouble getting that blog post to write itself? Try these 5 tips to get the juices flowing:
1. Write What You Know. Pick a topic that you know about & you’ll find it much easier to write quality content quickly.
2. Let Perfection Go. Accept now that you’re going to make a typo, need to edit later, or even change your mind. You now have permission to do all of those things.
3. Think Short. Not every post needs to be a book. Sometimes short is better.
4. Use Templates. Try a “5 Tips” style post. Choosing a headline and format makes the content creation easier.
5. Be Inspired by Others. Reading other blogs, the newspaper or trade magazines. They’ll help you models posts and generate ideas.
