Content Writing Challenge

I admit, I’ve been way too sporadic when it comes to writing anything on this website. To be honest, I feel like I’ve been working so much lately that it’s sapped my wish to continue writing posts in my free time.

Coming to that realization has been a point of frustration with me and I’ve decided to do something about it. I’m challenging myself to write in my free time and create posts for this site.

Sure, a lot of what I write now may or may not be seen. It shouldn’t ever be about that when it comes to having the drive to write a post or not. It should be about learning how to become a better writer, continue to learn and share those learnings, but most importantly be about having fun.

I also think I’ve felt burnout with my personal writing goals because I’ve been going about them the wrong way. There’s more than one kind of post, and I’ve been stuck just posting that one kind of post for the longest time. I feel that if I change-up what I write about, and change the way I think about writing – everything will improve. At least that’s what I’m hoping!

Blog and Content Ideas I’m going to use;

  • Curation lists
  • How-To guides
  • Updating outdated content
  • Compile guides into major lists
  • “Best-Of” posts
  • Listicles

As you can see, there’s a whole mess of things to write about. I’ve really backed myself into a corner, and I’m determined to get out of it. My next challenge isn’t to just start writing, but to start building better habits on what to write.

I want to start creating posts and showing analytics and how writing consistently can certainly increase your online visibility. It’s not just about writing though, I want to dedicate some time on social promotion and displaying those results here.

This site has lost a good amount of visibility due to lack of interest on my part, and I’m not entirely worried about showing it’s poor stats. It’s localized to a small market (Pittsburgh), and I really can’t say that I have given it serious thought in months.

So here goes nothing, one post down!
