How to Write Content for Your Website

typewriter-801921_1920All the best website building sites will tell you to add loads of content to your website. To learn how to write page for a website as quickly as possible. The way I learned how to create content for my website was mostly with trial and error. When I started out in this online business, I thought building my website would be the hardest part. Although the building was a challenge, creating and writing is an ongoing challenge.

Building the site, it does help to be a little bit tech savvy, but if you get stuck, you have loads of support and documentation to get you through. From written tutorials, support forums and videos.

When it comes to content, well that is another story. Of course, there are loads of support out there on ideas and how to write, but it’s not like they can write it for you. This is where patience and commitment play the biggest role. This is where it is important to have your goals for success written down so you can remember why you are creating this online business.

So where do you start? What if I have nothing to write about? Sure, that happens, so what do you do at that point that is most crucial. Do you just close up and walk away? You can do that, but your business won’t get very far.

The thing I do at that point is that I start talking to myself. I am always amazed how my conversations with myself help me find a subject and content to write. Now I’m not saying this will work for you, and it may cause a few strange looks in your household, but it has gotten me out of some of my writer’s blocks in the past. First I give myself a scolding for wanting to shut down and walk away. I tell myself that I am an idiot for even thinking of walking away, think about the relatively short period of hard work to get to your long-term goals, think about the opportunity you were given to help others.

Once I’ve convinced myself to keep on track, I then start thinking about my online business, how it works, what it does and what it can do. Then I start getting all excited about all the possibilities and the different directions the online business can take me. This is usually when I come up with an idea for content, as I see that there is still information missing from my website on a particular subject, or I remember a struggle I overcame when setting my job / employment at home, or when starting an online business.

Unfortunately, I am not a scholar writer, so I am not able to offer you any upper-level knowledge on how to write content for your website. One thing I do know is to write honestly, write your content the way you would like to read your information. Sure some people may prefer a website with an upper-level vocabulary, and I understand that, but you have to remember you can’t please everyone.light-465350_1920

As mentioned earlier, my personal choice is to write my website blogs is the same way I would explain a topic to family or friends. I keep it honest, and I try to keep it free flowing. I apologize in advance should my writing becomes garbled or lengthy as this may be due to another topic for a blog, “working into the wee hours of the night to get things done”.

I hope this has been helpful in some way. If you walk past a home and see some guy pacing around talking to himself, no worries, it may just be me trying to come up with my next blog.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your review , i used to do surveys for money like you before , but shortly found out that maybe not a 100% what they were scamming was my own time. Too much time invested for little money and at times they wouldn’t even acknowledge that i did their surveys from start to finish resulting in me not earning anything.

    After a while looking for ways to earn income online i
    found Wealthy Affiliate and can only say i am not looking
    back since that. Helpful community , helpful training
    sometimes my questions get answered in few minutes or even less. Video training from professionals, i can only say that if anybody wants to be successful online , has all the tools and information needed to achieve that goal.

      Hello Ananda,

      Thank you for your interest in my site and sharing your thoughts about how it can be difficult making an income online. I too have not looked back since being a member of Wealthy Affiliate. It is indeed an all in one package deal. I don’t know how I managed wihout it for so many years.

      Thanks

    Hello there! Writing content it is indeed one of the hardest parts of an online busines. What I do is to always write my ideas for content on a piece of paper in case my mind gets stuck. And something I keep reminding myself is that practice makes us better. Of course in the beginning it took me hours or days to write a page or a post for my website, but it is much easier as the time goes by.
    Thanks for this great article!
    Regards,
    Effie.

      Hey Effie,

      Thank you for checking out my site. Putting down ideas on paper when they come along is a great idea. I have noticed that writing has become much easier sine I’ve started this venture and am sure as you said it will become much easier with time and practice.

      Be well.

    Thanks for sharing your experience working from home.I too have been working from home for the past 7 years and have gone through a lot of the phases you described. People think working from home is glorious, and while it certainly does offer incredible benefits, there are some challenges as well which you’ve done a great job of describing. I’ve found that joining clubs, or other social groups of activities that have routine meetings is very helpful to combat the isolation that you may feel with a work from home job. I also tend to work from coffee shops quite a bit which also safeguards against isolation.

    • Paul says:

      I would love to have the option to work from a coffee shop. Unfortunately, due to privacy issues and the need for a telework phone, it would not be feasible for me to work from anywhere but my home at this time. My goal is to make my home based business replace my home based job at some point. Working from home does have its advantages but some disadvantages as well.

      Cheers

    Yes writing content on a blog or website can seem like a big task and challenge sometimes. There will be days when it seems easier than others. And days where it will almost makes you sick.

    that’s my mentality too when it comes to writing. To me it’s like talking to a friend. It shouldn’t be more complex than that. When we are trying to be too fancy or sound like someone we’re not, I think we are totally missing the boat.

    Writing should come as naturally as speaking…. because what is a written piece if it’s not a speech transcribed in words on a page? In fact, some people are recording themselves talking it out instead of writing it and then they will write down the transcript of what they just said.

    • Paul says:

      Hey Guy,

      That is a great trick to use when trying to write a blog. One can just dictate what they are wanting to say and then have it transcribed into text.

      I’ll have to give that a try myself, and see what tool smay help transcribeit automatically into text.

      Cheers

    Great article. I talk to myself too when I’m writing and usually pace a lot.

    And, like you, I write as if I’m speaking to a close friend. A casual, friendly tone is always best. I’m always trying to establish trust and confidence with my blog.

    By the way, I love your newsletter. I appreciate all the helpful information you pack into each one.

    • Paul says:

      One thing about working from home is the talking myself habits we pick up.

      I find myself writing too technical at times and then have to delete a chunk of content as I don’t catch myself doing it until it is too late.

      I am glad you find the newsletter helpful. I appreciate your interest. Keep on blogging and hope to see you here again soon.

      Cheers

      Paul
