Writing Consistently – What to do if you have a blog

First and foremost, writing consistently helps to establish your blog as a reliable source of information. When you publish new content on a regular basis, your readers will come to expect it and will be more likely to visit your blog frequently to see what you have to say. This can help to build a loyal readership and increase the overall popularity of your blog.

Additionally, writing consistently can help you to improve as a writer. The more you practice, the better you will become at crafting compelling and engaging content. This can be especially important if you are using your blog as a platform to share your thoughts and ideas with the world.

Furthermore, writing consistently can help to boost your search engine rankings. Search engines such as Google favor websites that publish fresh, relevant content on a regular basis. By consistently updating your blog with new content, you can improve your chances of ranking higher in search results, which can lead to more traffic and greater visibility for your blog.

Another important reason to write consistently is that it can help to keep you motivated and inspired. When you are in the habit of writing regularly, it can be easier to come up with new ideas and to stay focused on your goals. This can be especially useful if you are using your blog as a creative outlet or as a way to share your expertise with others.

Finally, writing consistently can help to build your personal brand and reputation. By consistently sharing your thoughts and ideas with the world, you can establish yourself as a thought leader in your field and build a reputation for expertise and knowledge.

Overall, there are many benefits to writing consistently when maintaining a blog. By publishing fresh, relevant content on a regular basis, you can establish your blog as a reliable source of information, improve your writing skills, boost your search engine rankings, stay motivated and inspired, and build your personal brand and reputation.

This post among all the others is part of my plan to write every day of this year. So far I haven’t missed a day yet, and if I do happen to miss a day then I plan on publishing twice on the next day.

The Unvarnished Truth about Prolific Authors

Recently, I came across a blog post from someone in my past. In that blog post, this person mentioned she was part of some group where there was an author who has published some 100+ books in his lifetime. While this number is very impressive, it is also a sign of someone who truly understands the business of writing and publishing.

You see prolific authors are so prolific because fundamentally publishing books or other works is in itself a business. Each work can act very similar to an annuity of sorts in that the payment for any written work can be paid over the course of one’s lifetime. So, therefore it behooves a writer to be as prolific as possible to keep growing this level of income.

The simple fact is that many of the most prolific authors didn’t write every single word they had published. It wouldn’t make good business sense to do so! Rather, by outsourcing, at least some of their time to researchers or even those who help create rough drafts is a better use of their time.

How would I possibly know about this? Well, I have spent some time ghostwriting for some of these so-called prolific authors myself. Of course, because of privacy reasons, as well as Non-Disclosure Forms, I am not able to talk about whom I have helped in the past.

I also know there are several large businesses that supply ghost writing services for some of the most famous authors that you may read. Again, this is something not talked about in the writing community, but it does happen.

It is folly to compare yourself as a writer to those whom you may feel are more prolific than yourself. In fact, it is folly to compare yourself to anyone else.

As well, in regards to the ethics of using ghostwriters to help you out that is beyond the scope of this particular post.

My point in writing this is that once you fully grasp that writing and publishing are, in fact, a business, you will be better able to leverage your time and resources to become far more productive. You can’t just blame your current situation for your lack of time to get things done.

Just write, write every single day.
