I am sure that if you are writing articles or blogging, you will encounter some obstacles here and there. Regardless of what the gurus say, article marketing is a sure way to get traffic for your blog and this has been proven since the early days of internet marketing to rank well for your website. Yes it is a difficult task and there will be obstacles to constantly write. Even the most experienced writer or blogger will encounter some difficulty.
There is no surprise that when writers or bloggers encounter difficulty, they tend to lose the enthusiasm to continue writing and soon stop writing. Here I would like to highlight 4 common writing obstacles to address to enhance your writing experience and get your enthusiasm back if you are feeling down in the dumps about writing.
Manage Your Writing Time
If you are just starting to write your first article, it is not surprising to take more time to write and publish it. Over time things will get more natural with you and your time better. The key areas that you focus on before publishing is to do adequate research, planning your content, writing or drafting, proofreading and finally publishing. The solution around this is to write regularly and consistency.
Writing regularly make things more natural to you just like when you are first learning how to drive and after several attempts on driving, things get more natural for you. In short, practice makes perfect and the total time to write and publish your article decreases.
An Article Can Only Fit So Much
It is impossible to write an article that fits everything you need to say. If this was the case, then it will not be an article but more like a book or an encyclopaedia. No amount of writing can achieve that. There is always the temptation to fit everything inside because you think your readers will like it better but in fact your readers will appreciate it if you could just carry your message across more succinctly and accurately.
If you are getting carried with too many ideas in your head, write it down break it down to smaller parts and create articles out of each individual parts.
Focusing On Quality But Not Perfection
As writers, we easily mix the two up but they are both entirely different. Remember it is not easy to produce quality articles all the time. I’m sure your readers will be impressed to see the quality of your articles but making a few good and mediocre ones is far easier than trying to maintain perfect articles all the time. The other alternative would be to write less often and do more research on your article content before publishing them.
Understand That More Articles Equals More Traffic
This point adds on to the previous point. Whenever you think that you should be a guru before publishing an article, you condition yourself into the “inferiority complex” and this becomes a stumbling block for you to publish an article. It is far better to publish more articles than producing excellent looking or “perfect” articles for your audience. The argument against this might be that more people will flood to see your perfect articles more than the mediocre ones.
I personally believe that these so-called mediocre articles can be improved over time and republished again. Better still, you will get ideas to create fresher articles for your next project.
These four main problems are key areas to address to bring your article writing to a better level. They might be difficult to achieve in a short period of time but again consistency with writing helps drive things in the right way. This is providing you follow this short guide on how to guide you on the right direction. So are you ready to write with renewed enthusiasm again?
