Going above and beyond the ‘practice makes you faster’ approach, there are a few specific things you can do IMMEDIATELY to blog up to 4x faster.
Without spending any money on fancy tools…
To make money blogging, better content has to be published consistently and you don’t have a lot of time to devote to this blogging side hustle.
Using this simple how-to blog faster system:
Blogposts that used to take over four hours to write are only taking one hour instead.
And they rank on Google faster too, here’s how.
Trick Number 1: Create a Google Optimized Outline
The first hack is to create a Google optimized outline based on what Google finds relevant to your main keyword.
After you have determined a perfect keyword, begin with a Google incognito search of your keyword.
Next, look at the most asked questions on Google that are relevant to your keyword.
Now, look at the suggested searches at the bottom of page 1 results.
You’ll find plenty of great topic ideas over there. Use the most relevant questions and related searches to generate headings for your blog post.
Now use these headings to create an outline.
Basically, what you end up with is a series of main points and sub-points that just need a little extra content to flesh it all out…
By far, this is one of the most potent content creation hacks I’ve ever tried and recommended to other people.
And those who follow this process and publish valuable content like crazy are driving TONS of traffic (direct as well as via social media).
Trick Number 2: The “Talk to Text” Feature in Google Docs
Wouldn’t it be easier if you could ‘speak’ the content instead of writing blog posts that eat up your entire day?
Now it’s possible…with the “Talk to Text” Feature in Google Docs.
When you have your outline from the first step above in your Google Doc, you can add all the rest of your content via voice.
And you can talk a LOT faster than you can type…
Here’s how you can write faster via voice to text feature.
First, you need to be in the Chrome browser with a Google Doc loaded…
Then click “Tools” and click the “Voice Typing” option.
A little microphone pops up on your screen. Click that and you are on your way.
Now do the ‘talking’ instead of ‘writing’ and once you’re done, you’ll find your entire content written.
Just a few tweaks here and there, throw in some interesting images, and your blog post is ready to go live.
Bonus Tips To Start Writing Better Content, Faster
Apart from these two blogging and writing hacks, I’ve got a couple more bonus writing tricks up my sleeve.
Ready to explore? Get set, go!
Go With Your Instincts To Answer The Biggest Problem First
A lot of bloggers don’t trust themselves to answer the question or solve the problem… and this can lead to hours of research as they try to validate what they believe to be true.
Don’t fall into this trap!
Research is awesome but let’s be honest…. it takes time. Sometimes, it takes more time than the actual writing part.
You read tons of topnotch blog posts, browse all over the internet, and jump from one page to another. The whole day goes by and you end up writing nothing.
But if you have an idea of what you’re talking about, you already have an answer.
So put it down, answer the question, solve the problem as you would solve it… and move on.
Stop doubting yourself!
Stop Nitpicking Your Posts To Make Them Perfect
Strive for quality, not for perfection. In fact, your imperfections are what make you and your blog unique.
Now that doesn’t mean you can overlook tons of typos, poor grammar, and spelling mistakes in your content.
Rather, acknowledge that you can’t solve everyones problems, but you can help more than enough in plenty of steps. Dig out your yearning for perfectionism and pluck it from the roots. This will give your content the much-needed space to evolve.
Here’s what you must remember….
Just like life, writing great-quality content and blogging have many bends, ups and downs, but that’s its beauty. As long as you’re providing real value via written word, just keep going.
After years of experience in content creation and blogging, I can assure you that there is no such thing as perfection. People waste hours of time trying to make their posts perfect. Don’t fall into this trap.
Jot down your blog post ideas, use them to create an awesome piece, do your best, give it one proofread/edit, then publish it.
This is especially true if you haven’t yet published 100 blog posts on your blog.
Remember, time is money. Use it wisely!
Focus On The Ultimate Result
Imagine yourself lying on the beach, cocktail in hand, free from responsibilities, and enjoying your vacation after a hectic work spell.
Isn’t it motivating to pack your stuff and get out of the door RIGHT NOW?
That’s what anticipation does.
And it works like magic for getting your posts written too.
Coming up with amazing content ideas and writing them down might feel challenging and overwhelming. But you shouldn’t be focusing on that part.
Instead, focus on the ultimate result. Your reward.
Think of your beach and cocktail dream as an approach goal. It’ll compel you to keep moving forward.
Don’t stress on the struggle. Focus on the good things that come once you are done writing.
For me, that’s clicking on the ‘publish now’ button after hours of writing heartfelt posts for my audience. Even better is positive feedback from my readers.
So, determine where your motivation lies. What’s the reward you get from blogging? Where does the excitement lie? Concentrate on that to get it done ASAP.
Write Your Intro Last
This is one tip I want you to write down somewhere and look at it every time you sit down to write your content.
I’ve seen many blogging gurus focusing so much on their introductory lines. They say, ‘Your first line matters. It’s what persuades the reader to continue reading the entire post’.
Sure it does but this isn’t of much use if you’ve got just 2 hours to come up with a compelling post. Spending 2 hours on just the first line will not leave you much energy to write the remaining content.
This is why I recommend writing the intro after you’re done with outlining, researching, writing, and editing your content.
This way, you’ll know exactly what your blog post is about and what you should write in the first few sentences.
Write Your Conclusion ASAP
The conclusion of your blog post is where all your thoughts are gathered in several short but to-the-point sentences.
When you write your conclusion sooner, it’ll help you concentrate on the narrative of your content.
To write an effective conclusion, write down the key points of your content. Elucidate exactly what you said and why it holds value.
Don’t worry if you have not quite validated your point yet. It’s a trivial thing that you can amend after you’ve written the entire conclusion.
These are little ideas I started implementing in my content creation process a long time ago and my personal blog has just crossed the 75,000 visits/mo mark!
Since I’ve been teaching this process, my students are creating more high-quality content, faster than ever before…
And their traffic is growing month over month too…
Now, it’s your turn…
Put these speedster blogging tricks into action today and stick with it through the next 12-months…
You’ll be amazed at what you create and the level of momentum you have, this time next year.
