I don’t like writing very much. That’s why the content that I create is either video, audio, or live events & workshops where I speak. Although I don’t like writing, it’s still critical for online marketing success (SEO benefits, people still love to read, etc)
(warning, there may be grammar errors in this post)
I’ve learned from my friend Janna that the best way to write is simply to write without editing, take a break or sleep on it, then edit it. My problem is time like most of us. When you write, edit, write, edit, you have a crappy first draft and grammar errors typically occur with this type process.
My Not So Perfect Process for Not Writing (as) Suckie
1. Just Write: I’m always writing blog post titles and so I’ll grab my blog post title, open up Evernote (which I think everyone should be using), and just write out your blog post. You can create a template with Evernote like Michael Hyatt talks about in his blog post “How to Use Evernote as a Blogger.”
2. The Brain Dump: Since we’re beefing up our content her on successfool.com with new blog posts, weekly podcasts & videos, I wanted to make sure that the content was legit. So I am having my friend Rebecca help me with content.
We met earlier this week to talk about a blog post idea that I’ll be posting really soon talking about the 3P’s of Success. I talked, she wrote, she edited it, and now we’re going to finish it later today.
So far that process is working and I highly recommend it for those that don’t have time to write or if you don’t have great grammar.
