Content for Your Blog

By Charles Hopkins Published 01/17/2007 | Blogs

If you are worried about getting content for your blog, you dont need to worry anymore. Getting content for a blog is much easier than writing one hundred pages of web content. You see, blog content is added one post at a time. You dont have to worry about filling it up with content the content will just naturally come.

The first step to getting content for your blog is to work blogging into your daily or weekly schedule. If you make blogging a habit, and you do it daily, at the end of one year, you will have 365 pages of content in the form of posts. But, depending on the purpose of your blog, you should know that the quality of the content is much more important than the quantity of the content.

You dont have to write all of the content yourself. You can hire a ghostwriter to blog for you, which is what many business owners do. Simply tell them what your topic is, what sub topics you wish to cover, and let them get to work. Ghostwriters are not as expensive as most people believe that they are.

You can post articles that are written by other people on your blog, as long as you give them credit for the work. These articles can be found in the numerous article directories on the Internet, and they are free. There are also some article directories that offer paid content.

You can purchase a private label rights package that pertains to your topic. This gives you the right to use the articles in the package as your own, and to put your name on them as the author. You will need to rewrite the articles to make them unique, however. But this is a fast and inexpensive way to get a ton of content for your blog.

You can find content by visiting other peoples related blogs. Simply make a post and reference the other persons blog, and provide a Trackback. While this is a great way to build readership, and a fast way to create free content in a pinch, it isnt something that you want to do in each and every blog post.

Blog posts dont have to be long and drawn out. It can be a couple of paragraphs long, and that is quite acceptable. It can be a link to a resource and a short paragraph describing the resource. It can be a list of links that relate to one topic or subtopic. It can be a short newsy item. As long as you are continually adding blog posts that are of interest to your readers, your blog will be successful.

Not just any content will do for your blog especially if building readership is important to you. You really need fresh, interesting content. Publishing the same old stuff that can be found all over the Internet doesnt bring value or readers to your blog.

Overall, your best choices for blog content are to 1) write your own content, 2) use PLR articles for content, or 3) hire a ghostwriter or assign an employee to write your blog content. Again, the other methods of getting content for your blog are acceptable, but not preferable they will, however, do in a pinch.
