When you type ‘blogging problems’ into Google, there are plenty of articles telling you how to fix issues with WordPress, Blogger and the like. However, there are surprisingly few results which actually answer your blog writing conundrums. If you’ve come across a problem whilst penning your latest piece, don’t panic – it’s Write My Site to the rescue! We’ve answered a range of common blog writing problems, with solutions that should take you less than 10 minutes to complete.
I don’t have time to write a blog post!
If you’re having one of those days where every minute counts, you may feel like you don’t have time to write a blog at all. However, you don’t necessarily need to churn out 500 words to create an interesting post. Copy and paste that funny industry picture you saw on Facebook, or put together a quick list of your favourite industry websites. All you need is a short introduction and hey presto! A blog post for your readers to enjoy, that didn’t take hours to prepare. We wouldn’t recommend this solution for every article you write, but if you’re really stuck for time, it will keep your blog active and engaging until you have the time to put together something a bit more substantial.
I’m stuck in a blogging rut!
Let your audience lead the way. Post a poll with a few different options that you’ve had in the back of your mind for a while, and ask which topic they are most interested in seeing in the future. Alternatively, include a list of previous blog posts (with ever-valuable backlinks!) and see which one they enjoyed most, so you know how to centre future articles. This is a quick and easy post to write and great way to boost engagement and rapport with your readers.
My competitor published a key story before me!
If you’re blogging in one specific industry, chances are you’ll be reporting on the same newsworthy issues as your competitors. This is unavoidable. However, if they’ve taken a story you were writing about and published it first, all is not lost. Make your blog stand out by taking a particular angle towards the story – rather than simply summarising the main points, take 5 minutes out to sit and consider what you think about the news, and use your blog post to express this opinion. This will make your article much more interesting to read, and help you to stand out as a thought leader in your area of business.
I’m running out of blogging motivation!
Regular blogging is no easy feat, and it’s easy to feel disheartened – particularly if you’re not getting as many comments or as much interaction as you’d hoped. However, stopping altogether is the worst thing you can do – you need to keep your blog as active as possible to attract web traffic and boost your SEO. If you need that extra push to write a blog post today, check out our recent articles, 5 statistics that will keep your business blogging and How to start a blog for your business (and keep it going!) – they’re great for a bit of easy-to-read inspiration.
