About Blogging: What Content Should I Publish? (Part 3)

In the last post in the About Blogging series, we talked about choosing a blog  name. After having done so, what's next?  The next step is a very important step for the success of your blog - WRITING QUALITY CONTENT  for your blog posts.

Why is that important?  As they say, "CONTENT IS KING."  Your blog content draws the readers to your blog.  If they are really happy with the information you shared, they may follow your blog through email or feeds.  They would keep coming back as long as you publish content that they love to read and know.  And more readers means more traffic; more traffic means more income for you if you are monetizing your blog.

What quality content should we write?  We should write original content related to our blog's theme or niche and it should be something that readers would find interesting or helpful.  What?  I need to write?  Yes.  By writing the posts yourself, your blog's content becomes unique to you and the search engines loves that and would bring traffic to your blog.

But I am not a very good writer?  Is there any other way?  Well, there are some places where you can find content for your blog. If you can spare some cash, you can hire a writer to do it for you.  Some sites where you can go to are Microworkers and Freelancer dot com.

However, if that is not an option, you can use PLR or Private Label Right articles.  PLR articles are articles you can use in any way you want with the author's permission.  You can change it, divide it into separate blog posts, claim yourself to be the author, whatever you like.  BUT you have to rewrite up to 60% of the article to make it unique.  Sorry, but you still have to write, at least now you spend half the time and effort.  Some of the websites where you can get free PLR articles is Cindy Battye's Daily Niche Idea and Gabor Olah's PLR Wholesaler.  Oh, by the way, if you're really not up to the rewriting stuff, there are also softwares called article spinners, just Google search it, which you can use though I haven't really tried it.

If you still can't do that then the last option I could suggest is to use content from article sites like Ezine Articles or Qondio.  But you have to follow the their rules which is usually giving credit to the source - keeping the author's contact information and link intact.  What you can do to make it not completely the same as the article found in the article site is to at least introduce the topic or give a brief review of the article you will reprint.

Do you have any other ideas for making blog posts?
