#1 Get organized
Do you ever notice that great content ideas come to you when you’re driving to the grocery store, taking a shower or waiting in line at the bank? Keep a notebook with you or a recording device and capitalize on these inspiring moments. Then, as soon as you get home or to a computer, draft a quick blog post on that idea so it doesn’t disappear.
#2 Capitalize on creative moments
When you’re having a good writing day, do more than pat yourself on the back for a good post. Take advantage of your momentum and write several posts at once.
#3 Keep a file of blog ideas
As mentioned, blog ideas come to us at the most inconvenient times. Keep a log of your ideas or potential titles in a file on your computer or in a notebook you keep on your desk. Now, when you’re stumped for an idea, you can simply open your notebook and pick the one on top.
If you keep up on industry publications, blogs and news, then you can borrow from these resources to create a quick post. You can start your post with something like, “Today in the New York Times” or “I read a blog post this week about xyz—here are my thoughts.”
Content is the essence of any blog…you can’t have a blog without it.
However, creating blog content doesn’t need to be a full time job. There are time management and content development strategies that can save you tons of precious time and money.
