Are you a blogger that finds it hard to write blog content quickly? Do you take hours creating the perfect blog post?
Maybe you don’t have enough time to write as often as you’d like because of the time it takes to produce quality blog posts.
This post is perfect for bloggers who want to write blog posts faster and easier.
Introduction on how to write blog content quickly
When I want to create a content faster I usually create an outline first. Then I quickly write down all thoughts I have about the topic in the different sections. I write down everything I think about and want to share with my audience.
Then when I’m done with the rough draft I go in to clean it up and create something worth reading. Making sure I added enough useful information to the topic to be helpful to my audience. When I create content this way, I usually get inspired more, and the thoughts flow more freely without having to overthink.
How long should it take to write a blog post?
Well, it depends. Some posts can take an hour and some will take several hours to write. It depends on what the post is about, how much information you want to share, and whether or not it’s a pillar post. Pillar posts tend to be on the longer side (2500+ words.)
On average it takes about an hour to two hours to write a 1500-word article.
Tools to use to write blog content faster
Evernote is a digital app that allows you to capture anything from text, photos, and audio notes. Bloggers use it to save drafts to their posts in the app and publish them whenever they want.
Grammarly helps you to edit your blog posts faster. It’s a spell checker and proofreader. It cuts your editing in half. Basically doing the job for you.
3. Google Docs
Google docs are my absolute favorite tool to use to write blog posts fast. See, I’m a very slow typer and use this app to talk all my blog posts out. It saves me so much time.
And best of all? It’s totally free to use for anyone with a Google mail account. Another great feature about it is you can copy and paste it straight into your WordPress blog. It saves so much time.
Steps to writing the perfect blog post faster
1. Research for only 15-30 minutes
Bloggers usually do research for hours. Some even days just to keep from starting on writing the blog post. Give yourself a time limit of only 15 to 30 minutes. So that you know you have to stop wasting time and get things done.
Doing this gives you only a certain amount of time and will make good use of it. You will work quicker because you have a time limit and a deadline.
2. Build your blog content calendar
You want to have blog posts ready long before you decide what to write. Because when you have headlines on hand, all you then need is to pick which blog post you want to write.
With a content calendar, you don’t have an excuse for not knowing what to write. It will save you so much time. Because you don’t have to think about what to write next.
3. Find your template to create blog posts faster
Have a template for the process of creating your blog posts faster. An introduction, conclusion, and a few subheadings are standard templates most bloggers use. Write your headlines before you start your post. That way all you have to do is fill in your blog post and you’re almost done.
Conclusion on how to write blog content quickly
Writing a blog post fast is totally possible. All you have to do is prepare really well. Sit down and plan out what your blog post is going to be about.
Then do the work. You have tools at your disposal to make the process simpler and faster. There are a lot of tools to make it easier for bloggers these days. So you really don’t have any excuse to write a blog post in an hour or two.
Because people are so busy nowadays that we don’t have time to sit for hours writing a blog post. Unless it’s a really long in-depth post.
A short 1500-word post should take you an hour to two maximum. If you take longer than that, figure out what the problem is and fix it.
Most times we think we are working when we are actually just wasting time scrolling on our phones or sitting and daydreaming.
Instead of working all the time that you are working. Work all that time and take small breaks in between so that your mind is fresh to create at an optimal level.
