Want to know the irony?
Odds are that it will probably take me more than 15 minutes to write this post.
But I know this is not why you are reading this post. You want to know how to save precious time. Because time is never enough. And how to write a blog post in 15 minutes, which is what? A bus drive? Not even that. A bit of your lunch break? A cigarette and two sips of coffee, if you’re into that sort of thing?
But please be aware of this: yes, content is king. Yes, if you can, you should spend as much time as possible writing, rewriting, editing, and polishing each of your posts. But if you’re on a tight schedule, being able to write fast is a blessing.
Writing that fast does not mean giving up on quality. If you follow these tips, you won’t be.
1. Write down your best ideas.
Inspiration is kind of a jerk. Has all kinds of bad habits, and it usually strikes when you can’t write. What you can do is write down your idea on your phone or go old school and scribble it down in a notepad or something. Like they used to do before technology was cool.
Why do this?
Well, because if you think about it, coming up with a topic to write about takes about half of your time. Maybe even more.
If you keep a list of your best ideas, then you can write a post whenever you have the time to do so, without having to spend a lot of time rummaging through your brain for topics.
