There’s days in which Muse is not your friend, and leaves you alone as if it was telling you 

“You’re on your own, deal with it!” If today is one of those days and inspiration is gone, don’t think everything is lost, because, there’s ways to help you create a good content even if you’re not inspired.


The mos important thing is not to feel overwhelmed, and over all you must search well, What can you do when you’re not inspired?

 

Cure Content

 

 

Of course you have your top 10 sites that you use as a pattern when it comes to writing an article. You can create a small recap with all the best news from each blog in a frequent basis, and you will be serving your readers with useful and interesting information. With this being said, you will be killing two birds with one bullet, you will have fresh content and up to date, and alse you will create a different post from the ones you usually do.

 

Ask your friends and followers



There’s nothing better than writing something interesting for those who read you, and when you’re missing inspiration you see all that your friends  followers and fans will like to read on your blog. Take a peak on to what is being talked about on social networks, Twitter in this case can be a great ally. Create filters related to the theme/subject of your blog and organize all the information that you see that is alike, then give a personal touch and make a post of your own with updated content.

 

Escaping traditional formats


There’s a lot of kinds of contents that you can do. Escape from the traditional post in which you show text with many images and jump into another kind of content, like interviews, blog collaborations, recaps, info-graphics, etc. A good content is the one that is done with love and desire, and of course, asking the collaboration of other bloggers so they comment and/or answer your questions as to any topic (interviews), this could be something that could fascinate your readers. Asides from these kinds of content, you must link each one of the bloggers you will interview , it will help you to get organic back links.

 

Create Content, even when you don’t need it


We can make researches on specific data that we would like to bring into our blog. We just need to be creative, original and knowing how to filter information. For example, conduct a study on to which kind of data would help your users. Write your thoughts on this topics, and give them your personal idea about it, of course using some “literature“, give an opinion about this data and you may come up with wonderful conclusions. In the end, what matters most, are your conclusions and your own examples, never forget this, don’t forget this.

 

Reactivate posts


Do you thing that once you make a post, you must forget about it, Not at all! Check those posts that worked better for you , read the content and look if you could turn it around adding  something else to the old content. This simple gesture will help you reactivate those old rusty posts so they continue to drive traffic to your blog, and those who just needed some updates or text or images, so they continue to be useful and read.

 

Do something to inspire yourself


Live through my words, you’re sitting in front of your PC and you don’t know what to write about. Minutes go by, hours go by and you still have nothing, not even a word. (*cough* fixes her throat) Excuse me, Do you think that by being there all sittin’ in your chair staring at the monitor real closely you’ll get something? Get UP and DISCONNECT  go for a walk, listen to music, read a good book, go see a good movie.


Breathe some fresh air so you can unplug and enjoy of these new ideas to feed your creativity, it will make you break the routine and you will for sure be back on your computer with another mind set and wanting to create new content.

 

You will have plenty of options when it comes to great ideas to create a great content, the most important thing for you to know how to keep a good blog updated, is not always pure original content. This post is a clear example that not too long ago we made a Blogging 101 for Rookies, and some more posts on content ideas!

What can you do to get organic back links?

 

1. Offer good content:

 With a good content you have part of the work already done. If your content is good, you will soon have more and more users following you, comment your posts, and the word to mouth will do the rest. Little by little you will be linking from other blogs as a reference for your quality content.

 

2. Create Relationships:

Talk with other bloggers about your subject, establish relationships with them, and comment in their blogs. Besides giving us popularity among other bloggers and their followers, will help us create direct relationship with each and every single one of them.

 

3. Be yourself in social media and offer interesting content:

 Comment in similar blogs, and get to know them well. If your comment is worth it, as soon as you start establishing a friendship with them, they will also comment on your website/blog, and over the most important thing, the will share your content among their followers. That, of course, if you do it using “Common Sense” (Here we go again!), blowing your own whistle doesn’t work, comment to add value, not just to post your links.

 

4. Anytime you feel inspired while writing, mention it!

Feel inspired and create enthusiasm

  There’s no inspiration gurus nor divine muses, the good ideas are always found with previous work. This is something fully beneficial for both you and your readers, and there’s nothing better than being grateful.

 

it is not happy people who is thankful, it is thankful the people who are happy

 

And remember that the most important thing, overall, is to do it with love, and common sense, we’re said it a few times already, but… It is our job to do so!

 

Thanks for reading!

become a better blogger sign

Creating a blog for the firs time can seem overwhelming, but the truth is, it’s one of the simplest ways to join the online community. Check out these tips to make sure your blog is positioned for success:

 

1. DEFINE CLEAR GOALS:

Before you start a new blog, it is of huge importance to define your goals for it. Your blog has a better change of success if you know from scratch what you hope to accomplish with it. Are you trying to establish yourself as an expert on the field? Are you promoting your business? Do you blog for fun only and to share your ideas and opinions? Your short and long term goals for your blog are dependent on the reason why you’re starting it anyways. Think ahead of time on what you’d like to gain from your blog in 6 months, 1 year, 5 years . Then design, write and market your blog to meet these goals.
 

2. KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE:

Your design and content should reflect the expectations of your audience. For example, if your intended audience are young adults, the design and content will be really different than a blog targeted to business professionals. Your audience will have inherent expectations for your blog. Don’t confuse them but rather meet and exceed those expectations to gain reader loyalty.
 

3. BE CONSISTENT:

Your blog is your brand, just like Coke or Adidas, your blog represents a specific message and image to your audience, which is your brand. Your design and content should consistently communicate your overall brand image and message. Being consistent allows you to meet your audience expectations and create a secure place for them to visit again and again. That consistency will be rewarded with reader loyalty.
 

4. BE PERSISTENT:

A busy blog is a useful blog. Blogs that are not updated frequently are perceived by users as static web pages. The usefulness of blogs comes from their timeliness. While it is important not to publish meaningless posts, since you may bore your audience, it is important that you update frequently. The best way to keep readers coming back is to always have something fresh out of the oven, which is meaningful,  for them to enjoy!
 

5. BE INVITING:

One of the most unique aspects of blogging it is social impact. Therefore, it is essential that your blog welcomes readers and invites them to join a two way conversation. Ask your readers to leave comments, ideas and even suggestions. By doing this you show readers that you value their opinion, and this will keep the conversation going.
 
6. Be Visible:

Most of your blog’s success relies on your effort outside your blog. Those efforts include finding like minded bloggers and commenting in their blogs, participate in social bookmarking through sites such as Digg or StumbleUpon, and join social networking sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn.Blogging is not a demonstration of, “If you build, they will come”. Instead, creating a successful blog requires hard work by creating meaningful content on your blog as well as working outside of your blog to promote it and develop a community around it.
 

7. TAKE RISKS:

 Beginner bloggers are often afraid of the new blogging tools and features available to them. Don’t be afraid to take risks and try new things. From adding a new plug-in to hold your first blog raffle or contest, it’s important that you maintain your blog fresh by implementing changes that will enhance the user experience, instead of overloading it, most likely causing your blog to crash (WordPress). And don’t become a prey for those “Awesome” brand new widgets or pluggings, instead go over your blog’s true needs and goals and review each potential enhancement in terms of how will it make your blog better and how your audience will respond to it.
 

8. IF YOU DON’T KNOW, ASK FOR HELP!

Even the most experienced blogger understands the blog-osphere is an always changing place and no one knows everything there is to know about blogging. Most important yet, bloggers are part of a close knit community, and the majority of bloggers understand that everyone is a beginner at some point. In fact bloggers are one of the most reliable and helpful people you can find on the net. Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask any questions. Remember, A fool is that one who never asks questions, rather than the one who risks himself to have some answers.
 

9. KEEP LEARNING:

It seems like everyday there’s a new tool available for blogs. The Internet changes are quick and sometimes even drastic, and blogging is not a niche that makes the exception. As you develop your blog, take the time to research new tools and features, and keep track of the latest news in the blog world. You never know where a new helpful tool will be launched that can make a true difference when it comes to great enhancement that could make your like easier and your readers happy.
 

10. AND OVERALL, BE YOURSELF:

just be yourself sign
 
 
You have to remember that your blog is an extension of you and your brand, and your loyal followers will keep coming to hear what you have to say. Add up your personality into your posts and adapt a consistent tone for your posts. Review if a corporate tone would be better for your blog, or maybe a youthful tone, or a comic tone. Then stay consistent with that tone in all your blog communications. People don’t only read blogs to read news , they could read the newspaper instead. so don’t blog like a news reporter, spice things up!

And here it is, 10 tips to be a better blogging! Hope this helps you guys, please show us some love and comment and share!

We as an SEO company have multiple new tasks and new learning to do, this happened to me when I was assigned to do Pawn Shop blogging… I was LOST!

 
I didn’t knew much, as the rest of the world, about pawn shop but what it is said and told to us since we are little, it is a place to sell things when you need fast cash, a place where people sell stolen stuff and so many other stories we could spend a few posts on it.
 
So how do we approach such a stigmatized niche? Simple answer is , investigating all there is to know about them, so first thing i went on and did was to try to use posts that would better the reputation of the industry, like educational posts regarding pawn shop procedures, requirementes, etc…
 
Here i leave you a few more ideas for those pawn shop bloggers out there whom may be just starting fresh:
 

1. PRODUCTS YOU SELL : 

Use the first thing you have in hand! Your products 🙂
 

2. OFFERS/COUPONS : 

 
Nice discounts will always drive new costumers to you.
 

3. GEMSTONES:

 
 People don’t know much about their meaning, origin, etc… Illustrate your clients
 

4. ANTIQUES

 
Everyone loves antique items, at least one. They will always bring a memory or two back.
 

5. STORY OF PAWN SHOPS

 
It is never too late to show people they’ve been here since forever and also are part of the economy of the nation.

6. EDUCATIONAL POSTS ON TO PAWN SHOP PROCEDURES

 
A well educated client is a best consumer!

7. NEW ITEMS: 

 
Your people want to know what’s new, you never know when you may get someone’s interest with something new.

8. ANSWER QUESTIONS: 

 
Companies whom are open to questions and suggestions gets more clients and build better relationships

9. SERVICES OFFERED/NEW SERVICES: 

 
Keep your people informed on what’s new!
 

10. INSIDE THE SHOP:

 
Talk about your employees, regular costumers, pictures of the inside and outside of the shop, etc…
 
Hope i have helpend once more with this post, since sometimes is hard to get inspired to write, even if you’re an awesome writer.
