Some writers get overwhelmed and frustrated at the huge amount of content online. If you’re such a writer, you need to understand that you are unique. What you have to say is unique, compared to everyone else who writes online. While there might be a lot of information available about the same topic, that doesn’t mean that you can’t offer a fresh perspective.

If you’re worried about writing fresh and unique content to post on a website, blog, portal, etc., these tips might help you out. Remember, being a writer means actually writing. If you’re sitting around worrying about being unique and don’t write a word, then you’re just wasting your time.

How to Develop a Content Strategy

5 Tips for Writing Fresh Content

TIP #1: Write daily. One of the best ways to ensure you write fresh content is to simply write every day. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to publish an article or two online every day. Keep a journal that you write in by hand. Jot down your thoughts from the day. Take notes from your favorite book. Write some favorite quotes. The trick is to continue writing on a daily basis.

TIP #2: Don’t compare yourself to others. The quickest way to throw yourself into writer’s block is to start comparing your work with other’s. Don’t do that. You have a special, unique voice all your own. Your work won’t be like someone else’s.

TIP #3: Read offline. One mistake some writers make is constantly reading articles and content on the Internet. If you want your writing to be unique and fresh, take your reading offline. Go to the library and borrow some books on your favorite topic. Read the newspaper. Consuming too much information online isn’t good for you. You need diversity and variety. So take your reading habits off the Internet.

TIP #4: Take a break from your computer. One of the best things I’ve found to rejuvenate my writing is to totally take a break from my computer. Sometimes the rat race online gets to be a little too much. When I start feeling overwhelmed, I get up and walk away. Sometimes I even turn off my laptop for a few days at a time. It’s good to clear your head and get your thoughts together.

TIP #5: Go back to a pen and paper. This is the one thing I’ve discovered that works best for me. If I’m writing something that requires research, I conduct my research, then get off the computer. In fact, I’ve learned that sometimes I write a lot faster by hand than I do on the computer. There are way too many distractions on a computer. Grab a pen and notebook and do some quick brainstorming or outlining by hand. Your thoughts will be more unique and your writing will almost always flow better.
