Blogging Fast: 5 Ways To Improve Your Writing Speed

Steven 3 responses Blogging

When I first started blogging I’d read these other bloggers who talked about posting multiple posts every day on five or six blogs and writing five or ten articles for article marketing every day, and I always wondered how they managed to get all that writing done.

They were either pulling my leg or they were really fast writers.

Turns out, most of them really were fast writers.

Here’s how you can do it, too.

1. Keep A Notebook And Plan Ahead

Serious bloggers are thinking about their blogs at all hours of the day and night, no matter what they’re doing.

No, this isn’t obsessive and it’s not counter-productive, it’s just a fact of life.

Serious business people from every business, both online and off, are always thinking about what they’re going to do next and planning for the future.

Always have a notebook handy to jot down ideas.

You’ll be surprised how many ideas pop into your head at 2 AM when you’re lying in bed staring at the ceiling.

Have a notebook on the nightstand.

And don’t tell yourself you don’t need a notebook, you’ll be able to remember it, because you won’t.

Once a week or once a month, go through those ideas and set up an editorial calendar.

You may have to do some brainstorming to come up with enough post ideas to fill in the blanks, but that notebook you’re keeping will provide a good foundation.

Keep your editorial calendar handy, too, in case you want to add new projects or ideas.

With a calendar handy you always know in advance what you’re going to write about.

2. Get Comfortable With A Few Basic Templates

Learn how to quickly write some of the popular post-types.

For example, list posts and How-To posts are always popular and you should be able to whip those up in minutes.

3. Write Like There’s No Tomorrow

Sit down and start writing and just write like there’s no tomorrow.

At this point, don’t worry about editing or formatting, just get it all down on “paper.

If you edit and format as you write you have to keep stopping and starting and you lose your train of thought.

Then, to compensate, you go back to the beginning of your article and read it over again.

You keep stopping, editing, and reading, stopping, editing, and reading, and it takes forever to write one post.

4. Edit Your Post

Once you’ve dumped everything out of your brain and onto the paper, you can go back and edit.

And after you’ve got all your key points in the proper order, and you’ve checked spelling and grammar and your call to action, then you can go back and format.

5. Publish And Move On To The Next

Once you’ve hit publish, move on to the next post.

If you’re keeping your editorial calendar up to date you already know what it is.

It’s easy to write fast if you plan ahead and just keep moving.

  1. Do you think quality suffers? Or, is it about quantity over quality?

    I find that the content I write that includes tips are most useful, too. People love the how-to list. You can develop your own style using lists as part of the way to be creative.

    Fast writing is a technique which comes only after some experience in writing. Right now I find it difficult to even post 2 quality articles per day, but I am still a newbie and I know I can only improve from here if I work hard on my writing.

  3. Wow that’s a lot of time to put into writing. It’s almost like having a job. I ask the same question as Jayme about the quality. But besides that keeping a note book is a great way to organize your thoughts.
