How To Write And Publish Everyday: When it comes to blogging, or as a matter of fact, writing for any other media, I see many people give up after a point of time. They say, “I don’t know what to write about” or “Is it even possible to write on a regular basis, if not daily?”
I am not talking about story-tellers or poets, but bloggers, in general, who write or want to write on a particular niche. While writing on a daily basis might not be possible for everyone, but if you are blogging for money, regular writing is a must. Even if you are publishing one blog every week, you should maintain that and publish at least one quality article every week.
Unless something else comes up, I ensure I write and, in all likelihood, publish every day. And I have been doing like this for the past four years.
So, how do I do that? How to write and publish everyday? This is what this post is about – how to write everyday.
How To Write And Publish Everyday?
Before I started writing this article, I read a few articles on the Internet about how to write and publish everyday. Most of them says, among other things, to make it a habit – to allocate some time daily and try to write no matter what. That, according to them, will after a point of time become the norm and you will be able to write without any effort.
I completely disagree with that approach.
Forcing yourself to write is like an arranged marriage. You do not have a choice in that. It’s like you are writing because it’s an obligation. The moment you feel tired about it, you will give up.
Writing is not just about jotting down mechanically. It is all about your experiences, the way you think, feel and understand things… and your intentions.
You might be writing news stories, opinions, some educational posts, or a fashion blog – it all comes down to the way we feel and experience things.
Now, you might ask how is it possible to experience new things every day.
Does a fashion blogger go for shopping or photoshoot every day?
What about a food blogger? Do they explore new restaurants every day?
And does a photo-blogger go for expedition every day?
May be… May not be… I don’t know. But what I do know is that you don’t need to live an extraordinary life to write on a regular basis.
All you have to do is be a little disciplined and serious about writing… And most importantly, you need to be in love with writing before you commit to it.
So, How To Write Every Day? What Should I Write?
I remember when I was a kid, one of my teachers, when she came to know that I liked to write, said to me, “If you really want to be a good writer, you need to read a lot more than you write, may 100 or even 1000 times more.”
This is something that I always remembered. I read a lot. Even on a typical working day, I make sure I spend a couple of hours reading something…anything… It helps me a lot to come up with new topics to write about.
Another habit that worked for me to come up with new ideas to write about is that every single day, I try to learn something new.
For example, my blog, Blogsperia is about blogging and content marketing. So, I make sure I spend some time every day to learn a new aspect of it, may be a new tool, or a new blogging platform, for example.
Some days, I learn even two-three new things. Other times, it takes two-three days, sometimes even more, to learn a new thing. But I allocate some time daily for this purpose.
The result is that I always have something to write about. In fact, I have a repository of topics to write about for the next couple of months. And that’s how I can write on a daily basis.
Of course, to maintain the quality of what I write, sometimes I need to spend more time on a topic, do more research. But I am never short of topics.
What’s The Point?
The point here is that no matter what you write about, you need to be disciplined about it. Disciplined, in terms of enthusiasm, not writing. You need to be enthusiastic and curious to explore all possibilities.
If you are a fashion-blogger, reading fashion magazines or following designers and models on social media with a critical or analytical mind can help you. Or maybe exploring the new collection of a less popular brand online religiously can help you come up with topics.
If you are a food-blogger, some days, you can cook something yourself and share your experiences. Even if the food turns out to be horrible.
If you are a photo-blogger, instead of publishing new photos, maybe you can write about some technical aspects of photography once in a while.
These are just ideas. Of course, you would know better what all possibilities could be explored and what can or cannot be written and how to write them. The point here is to be able to write on a regular basis, you need to explore on a regular basis.
You cannot live the same life every day, do the same stuffs, and expect new ideas to pop up just like that.
Do something different.
And that doesn’t necessarily mean you literally have to do it. There are smart ways to get things done.
For bloggers, especially, one of the easiest ways to find new topics to write about is by exploring Quora. Follow the topics that you write about and see what people are asking. Then try to answer them in your blog. Write an entire post on that.
In fact, following social media in general and joining active groups and forums on your niche can be of great help. Once you find a topic, do your research and see how to use the knowledge you gather to write something new.
Cultivating the habit of reading, watching movies, and cartoons, etc. too can help you come up with new ideas or new ways to present your knowledge, no matter, what niche you write about. These are ways of virtual exploration and can often give you new ideas.
And you need to have an sincere intention behind writing. My intention behind Blogsperia is to help budding bloggers who do not have any idea about how to begin, what to learn, in what order to learn, etc. When I started blogging, I couldn’t find many blogs that provided these information in an easily understandable language.
The most important thing to remember is that do not think that you are doing something, anything, because you have to write. That would become an obligation and you won’t enjoy it.
Do something because you enjoy it. And if you can turn that into a piece of writing, that’s great.
That’s why I say do something new every day, even if it means learning something new.
Do not make writing an obligation. It has to be fun and easy. And it has to come out from the heart. That’s why you need to experience what you write about. And you need to have a sincere intention behind what you do.
