5 Favorite Ways to Write a Quick Blog Post
• Shove a video in there. Everyone enjoys watching a good and relevant video. With all the tube sites, out there it's harder not to find a video that will fit your blog like mayo on a tuna. When you have found the perfect video, copy and paste the embed code in your post, together with two or three of sentences and almost before you started writing, you're done for the day.
•Take advantage of the other blogs in your field. I’m sure you read a many of the blogs out there, relevant to your field (if not, then it's a good idea to start now). Select a post you find interesting, write a short paragraph why you find the post interesting and relevant, together with a link. Not only will you give a fellow blogger some buzz, you might also find you increased your network of blogging friends as well!
•Quotes. Visit a big quote site and look for something that you think would relate to your blog’s field, niche or theme. Write a couple of words about the quote you choose and why you find it relevant or special and end the post asking your readers how they interpret it.
•Recycle old Stuff. Head down deep into the archives of your own blog and see if you cannot find an old and forgotten killer post. When you find that magnificent post, tell your readers about it, encourage them to read it again, and hit that publish button.
•Make a List. Lists are fun, easy and fast to write and they can be about anything you can imagine. Why don't make a top list or ways to do this or that. The more your list stands out, the better. Try to start your list with a number, like "5 ways to do something" or "10 things that", since those kinds of lists have a tendency to attract readers. Try it on your blog and watch the results.
