If you write for a living, you're well aware that writer's block is sometimes the norm rather then the exception. We don't just want to paste information that feels forced or not thought out because readers will know the difference.
So, how do you write quality content for your readers to benefit? I personally keep a side journal and note my ideas, thoughts, anything that comes to mind on that particular day. I then gather all my written thoughts and convert them into an article for my specific niche. You may find a different method to your article writing style, but this works for me. Concentrate on providing articles that will answer a question that is searched upon in your niche and/or provide tips on how solve a particular problem.
Search engines love quality content and not to mention it is great for traffic generation. The question I get asked a lot is "how often should I write?" Again, using myself as an example, I write at least 2 to 3 times a week. I post to my blogs at least twice a week with guest articles in between. Find your writing and posting style for your own blog/website. Consistency is also important. The more you write, the more search engines will pick up on your content.
Let your readers get to know you first and foremost. Be yourself as you write and your personality will shine through. Engage your readers with your writing and provide the type of quality content that will benefit your readers. When writing ask yourself the following questions:
* Will my readers benefit from what I have to say?
* Is my writing proofed for spelling, grammar, etc.?
* Does my writing engage the reader to comment?
* Am I writing on a consistent basis?
If you experience writer's block that's okay too. Even the best of authors do as well. Maybe you can provide a guest article (with permission of course) on the days you just can't find something to say. Take heart, jot down anything that may come to mind which may help cure your writer's block. If you find yourself feeling that way often, then maybe the niche you're in isn't exactly your passion. Find your passion and build upon that. Writing should be something to enjoy rather then a chore.
Best of luck in your business endeavors!
