How writing content regularly is helping me improve myself! ✨

Be it writers like Kurt Vonnegut, Haruki Murakami, or your favorite blog writers, all of them have one thing in common - they read (and I mean A LOT!!)

When I first started writing, I realized that writing was just half the part. Researching and coming up with great ideas was as important. That’s where reading comes in.

To write content regularly, I spend half an hour every day reading content on different themes like productivity, web design, business, and other unrelated topics. This has had a massive effect on how I interconnect different ideas together, come up with novel business solutions and you’d be surprised to know that’s how I have come up with different feature ideas for Brutask as well.

It has also helped me think from the perspective of my audience. I can not only see the benefits of that in my work life where I can step into the shoes of my customers but in my personal life as well where I can understand and empathize with people better.

Waiting for the cherry on the cake? It helps me connect with readers like you who have a whole new set of thinking, perspectives, and beliefs that can expand my vision.

Which is that one habit for you that has helped you improve yourself?

    Thanks for sharing it, Siddhita. I am heavily inspired by awesome writers like you. I have a tiny blog (https://www.pankajtanwar.in/blogs) where I share my thoughts.

    2 weeks back, I decided to solve a programming challenge every day and write a blog about it. I call it my coding diary (https://www.pankajtanwar.in/coding-diary). It's like a daily workout for me. I enjoy writing every day.

      This is really good to hear @the2ndfloorguy! Documenting the journey is extremely useful. Many leaders recommend it and I think it's for a very good reason that you can use this documentation as a potential content post in the future.

      Keep up the progress!

    Great post. You are right to be a sought-after writer for your readers, you need to constantly draw ideas and improve your writing skills. You are good at it. I also try to constantly work on my written content on my blog, the practice of working as a writer in the service https://www.thesiswritingservice.com/ left me with good skills, but I have a problem with topics for writing. Now I am looking for a source of ideas and inspiration.

    I agree on this, consistently writing in general has always uplifted my spirit. What I struggle with is finding blog ideas I should write about. Do you have a process to come up with or find interesting blog post ideas?

      For the blog ideas @billythebum, you should start researching upon all the challenges your audiences faces. Another way to approach it is by using tools like soovle or answerthepublic for uncovering new topics.

      I also love reading up on trending blogs in the industry. For instance, while learning about marketing, I usually refer to hubspot, contently and better marketing (on medium). This gives me new ideas to talk about and then I try putting in my thoughts on the topics.

      If you want to learn about creating idea outlines and write better blogs, I highly recommend you to check out this youtube video -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUgQiiSvdOg

      Hope this helps!

    This is profound. Innovation comes from synthetization. Where do you find reading material (blogs on medium perhaps)? Any books you've read that had a lasting effect on your work?

    1. 1

      Medium is like super amazing! I love reading up on the platform and partially it's also the reason why I use it for my blogs as well.

      I tend to research heavily using tools liek Google autosuggest, soovle, trending industry blogs like hubspot, bunch of medium publications like better marketing, and illumination.

      As for the books go, I am currently reading influence by Robert Cialdini. It's a pretty big and intense book so taking lot of time to go through it. But the ideas explained until now have had a big effect on me.

    Showing up every day, even when you don't feel like it. Though I have to confess I'm not there yet, but I try to at least be as consistent as my current me allow :)

    Re new features for Brutask, do you also ask what your current customers want?

    Thanks for sharing, Siddhita!

      You'll soon be there @wellymulia! If you ever face any challenges or feel stuck, just put it up on the community posts and we'll all make sure to boost you up!

      As for the features, yes I am currently trying to have one on one conversations with Brutask users. It's taking a while because it also depends on the availability of the user. But now I'm thinking of introducing a new system inside brutask to collect user feedback.

      And you're most welcome!

        Having a place to collect ideas from users is helpful. I can attest to that. When developing new features and improvements, we always look at this.
