It happens to all bloggers to not have time to write something for their blogs. If this is the case with you this week you’ll love this post. 🙂 You can always use images, videos or audios to make a great blog post with a minimum of writing, but how about a regular text-based content without the required writing effort? Here’s what you can post on your blog that won’t need more than a few sentences (unless you want to add more), and at the same time is quality content for your readers:
List Quotes In Your Blog Post
You’ve probably noticed how many people like and share inspiring, motivational, and humorous quotes every day on social sites. The quotes posts are very popular among online readers because they offer the information in a way that’s easy and quickly to understand, and lots of people can relate to them.
If you aren’t already a huge quotes fan, you can start collecting them from now on during your regular reading and blogging, from books, blogs and websites. BrainyQuote, GoodReads and Brain Pickings are great starting points for following and searching quotes related to your niche.
Maybe you are just starting blogging in your niche, and don’t feel like an expert in the area, but there are other you read and admire that you can turn to for tips and advices. You’ll not only get content for your blog, but this type of posts will also bring new perspective to your readers and raise your online profile. If you can’t reach the best in the industry, don’t forget to turn to more experienced fellow bloggers who would be happy to share their knowledge with your audience.
But if you want this type of blog post keep in mind that it takes more time to put it together, and you will need to plan and organize ahead to ensure busy bloggers will have time to get back with answers until you need to publish. Maybe you can’t do this for this week’s post, but remember it for next time.
Ask A Question And Watch The Discussion
You’ll need greater loyal readership to be able to publish this type of blog posts, and they can help you build engagement and community around your blog. Simply pose a question in the post and leave it to the comments of your readers. The discussion that develops can also be a rich source of ideas for future writings. You can even feature a separate post quoting the best comments.
Write A Recap Post
Your new readers haven’t read your past writings, and the regular ones have maybe missed your best, so from time to time, or on regular basis, you can create recap blog posts showcasing your top work in the previous month, six months, year, etc. In the post you will need to include the titles of the selected posts as well as link to them, but you can also use their opening lines or parts of the key paragraphs. You’ll have a great blog post without doing much writing.
I’m sure there are other tricks I’ve missed. If you have some on your mind please share them with us in the comments.
