How to Generate Good Blog Content Faster

I can think of a few ways.

  1. Decide going in to the blog content creation effort that you will get something “done” in a certain amount of time.
  2. Remove/destroy distractions, or remove yourself from their presence.
  3. Emphasize focus and the task at hand – getting a great article or content chunk done ASAP.
  4. Think about for whom you are writing or producing the content.
  5. Think about what specific problem you will be solving through the content, or what question you will be answering.
  6. Come up with a catchy headline.
  7. Make sure the headline is clear and conveys a compelling promise of some benefit. (You don’t always have to do this, but it’s important as a general rule.)
  8. Write, write, write – or record, record, record if audio/video, or snap, snap, snap if photos … just produce raw content. Don’t edit yet.
  9. When you’ve spilled out all your ideas, go back and revise and organize. Do NOT overdo this part.
  10. Now it should look at least semi-decent. Try to flesh out the content chunk by referring to related chunks among your own repositories (first) and elsewhere online or offline (second).
  11. Check your timer – how long has it been? Always measure your publishing efforts. Figure out whether it’s initial composition or final editing/publication that’s slowing you down.
  12. Ask for help if needed – if you get stuck, don’t hesitate to ask for help from trusted friends or even just passers-by who seem like they’d have a few good ideas.
  13. Stop when you’re done and just publish the thing.
