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

In the last post of this 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 love that and would bring traffic to your blog.

But I am not a very good writer?  What are my options?  

One option is to hire a writer to write content for your blog. Of course, you need to spend some cash. You can go to Upwork or Fiverr or iWriter.

Another option, if you don't like the first option, is to use Private Label Right or PLR 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, or even claim yourself as the author if that is allowed in the terms of use of the seller.

But with PLR, you still need to rewrite the article up to 60% to make it unique.  Though you still need to write, at least now you can do it probably at half the time and effort since you already have a structure of some sort regarding what you want to post in your blog.

Some of the PLR sellers I like are PLR Minimart, Piggy Makes Bank, Niche Starter Packs, and PLR.me. If you want to get some free PLR articles, these two PLR sellers are offering free samples: PLR.me and Piggy Makes Bank.

If you still think you can't use PLR articles, the last option I could suggest is to post content from article sites that allow it like Ezine Articles.  But you have to follow 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?

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
