Finished 10 Blog Post (Experiments)

Richard Dancsi @wimagguc

I've tried a few things to keep up with a weekly posting schedule on the Tech Eye blog:

  • Hired people from Upwork to do research and write posts (that's all money down the toilet)
  • Worked from event transcripts (which worked but still a huge amount of work)
  • I received a guest post offer (that lead nowhere)
  • Repurposed previous posts and articles I wrote (that worked, but not extremely scalable)
  • Hired an outsource PR company to write posts (went well, especially the intro and the language is great, spares me around 50% of the work)
  • Tried to write them as a future book's chapters (following some of the instructions in the book "How not to suck at writing": https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25625516-how-to-not-suck-at-writing-your-first-book - worked, but not extremely efficient)
  • I wrote a guest post for somebody else (I liked that the most, because it raises the bar)
  • ...and wrote and wrote and wrote

Two things that helped greatly were:

  • Highland2 (on Mac) for editor, I'm getting used to work with snippets and outlines
  • The Most Dangerous Writing App, the 5-minute no excuse mind dumps are terrific: http://www.themostdangerouswritingapp.com
