6 Ways to Get Creative with Writing Your Blog Content

6 Ways to Get Creative with Writing Your Blog Content

When it comes to blogging, the contents you create is everything. It needs to be high-quality, engaging, and provide value in the process. However, not all content writing styles will come off this way or even provide any value to their direct audience.

Before writing content for your site, you need to first think about what you are going to write about, who is going to read it, and how you are going to promote it after it goes live.

In addition to all of this, you will also want to make sure that you are in “the zone” when writing your content, so you can truly get creative with your blog writing content. To help with this process, here are some fun ideas on how to open your mind, increase energy, and get those writing juices flowing.

1. Pick a topic

Now, the very next step is to search for yourself. Didn’t understand? Let’s be clear, what are you great at? Selling Stuff? Building stuff?  Engineering Stuff? Explore yourself and see what you are good at.

If you’re good at football, write on it. If you are good at selling, write on it and if you’re good at marketing then do that too. I simply want you to become successful, and the only way to do that is to explore yourself and Pick a Topic and write on it. Help People; this will help you to become a successful blogger.

2. Design your Blog

Now the next step is to design your blog accordingly. Pick up a theme for your blog according to the topic you chose. If you have a topic of “fashion”, then search for fashion related templates, and I suggest you use the 2 column templates if you are using blogger.com. Anything else depends on you.

Just pick a simple, clean, and beautiful design. The user will be able to find things much easier if the blog is simple.

3. Search Engine Optimization

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is getting harder and harder for people doing black-hat SEO. Pick up the intent keywords. Pick up the high-competition keywords and work hard on it.

I won’t suggest you lay back and take low keywords and build traffic. Trust me, that is worth nothing, and when you pick something like “buy” or “reviews” then you will be on top!

4. Exercise Before Writing

One of the best ways to get your mind ready for anything is to do a quick exercise. This can be as simple as getting out of your chair and doing some stretching or quick jumping jacks. No matter what you do, just get up and busy for a few minutes before sitting down and writing again.

5. Spend a Few Moments Coloring

Remember how fun it was to sit down a color in books when you were a kid? Not only was this fun, it was also relaxing and a great stress or as well. There are all types of coloring books for adults that can provide these same results. I recommend you take a look at these coloring books for adults to see if any of them are interesting to you.

6. Close All Potential Distractions

The last step to take before writing an article for your blog should be removing all distractions. This includes the TV, radio, people, cell phone, or anything else that might pull your focus away from your writing. This will help speed up the writing process as well.

Follow these quick tips and I’m sure you will find much improvement in your content writing and blogging experience. Remember, you aren’t just writing for yourself or the search engines…real people are going to be reading it.

How to Use Credit Cards While Staying Out of Debt

How to Use Credit Cards While Staying Out of Debt

Many people will suggest that the best thing to do with your credit cards during these tough economic times is to cut them up with a pair of scissors. Indeed, if you are already in huge debt, you probably should stop using them and begin a payback strategy immediately. However, if you are not currently in trouble with your credit cards, there are wise ways to use them.

I happen to really love my credit cards so I will share with you my approach to how I use mine without getting into deep financial trouble.

Ever since about 1983 when I got my first Visa card, I continue to charge as many of my purchases as possible on credit. Everything from gas, groceries and monthly payments for services like my cable and home security monitoring are charged on credit. Despite my heavy usage, I have maintained the joy of never paying any interest fees at all on any of my credit cards.

Here are some tips on how best to use your credit cards without falling into the trap of paying those nasty double-digit interest fees.

Do Not Treat Credit Cards as Your Funding Sources

Too many people treat their credit cards as funding sources for major purchases. Do not do this if you want to stay out of trouble. I use my credit cards as convenient financial instruments so I do not have to carry around much cash. In fact, I hate carrying cash, especially coins. When you buy things on credit, the purchases are clean and you will not get annoying coins back as change.

I do not rely on my Visa, MasterCard or American Express to fund any of my purchases, large or small. This brings me to my golden rule when it comes to whether I will pull out any of my credit cards either at a retail or online store.

I never purchase anything with my credit cards if I do not have the actual cash on hand in my bank account.

If I really cannot pay for the item or service with cash that I already have at the bank, then I simply will not make the purchase. Remember, my credit cards are not used as funding sources. They are just convenient alternatives to actual cash in my pocket.

Make Sure to Always Pay Off Balances in Full Each Month

The next very important part of my overall strategy is to make absolutely sure that I pay the balances in full each and every month no matter how large they are. This should never be a problem if the cash has been budgeted for my purchases and secured in the bank. I have always paid my full balances each month ever since my very first credit card and this is why I never pay interest charges.

Using Credit Cards with Rewards

Most of my credit cards are of the “no annual fees” type, including one MasterCard on a separate account I keep at home as a spare in case I lose my wallet or incur any fraudulent charges. However, I do use a main Visa card which does have an annual fee because all purchases on that card reward me with airline frequent flyer points. For me, the annual fee is worth it since I do travel and I get enough points to redeem many free flights.

You have to decide for yourself if you will charge enough purchases on credit each year without paying interest charges to warrant a credit card that rewards you with airline points (or other rewards). In my case, the answer is “yes” but that might not be the case for you.

I occasionally use a MasterCard or American Express card on small purchases just to keep those accounts active. Also, I have been to the odd retailer that accepted only a certain type of credit card, so I find that having one from each major company is quite handy. Aside from my main Visa card which earns the airline points, the rest of my cards are of the “no annual fees” variety.

So this is how I use my credit cards without getting into any financial trouble with them. This strategy is recommended only if you are not in debt, of course. In fact, it is worth keeping in mind once you’re out of debt so that you can keep your credit cards active and treat them responsibly.

What are your credit card usage strategies? Let me know in the comments — I’d love to hear what methods you use.
