Stick to the topic
Once you start writing the article, Just stick to it and don’t leave it until it is done.
This is what I do while writing articles. Once I start, I just stick to it and write each and everything I know about the topic I want to explain.
What your aim should be to write everything you know about the topic you are writing. You can use voice to Text tools so that you can write while speaking. It will help you to make the article look natural.
One more thing you can do is not to Over-optimize the content you are generating for SEO. This is what you can do to Write perfect Search engine optimized article according to my experience.
- Use the Targeted keyword once in the Title.
- Use the Targeted keyword once in the URL (Permalink).
- Use the Targeted keyword once in the meta description of the article.
- Don’t care to enter the same keyword in the content if it does not fit in.
- Write related to the topic and try to help Visitors regarding their problem.
So, this is how you can perfectly optimize the content according to me. Try to write for your regular readers and not the search engines.
Make Article Structure before getting started!
Before getting started with the article, you should know the format of the piece of content you are going to write.
The structure includes the heading of the article, Introduction, Subheadings (H2), Subheadings under subheadings (H3), End of the article.
I will make the detailed article regarding this topic, about making the format of any article before getting started with it.
Before writing article, you should be aware of what you are going to write in the article, Subheadings should be defined.
It is because, if you decide Sub-headings while writing an article, you’ll ruin the quality of the article.
While writing about the specific point in the article, don’t think about other Sub-topics or points you are going to write or you’ve already written.
In the case of Writer’s block, It will release your mind to think about the other topics. You’ll write about the specific topic without caring about other subjects.
Conclusion: Writer’s block is very dangerous because it stops us to do your work. I’ve faced it when I was just getting started with blogging because at that time I was not having much knowledge about blogging as well as I was doing wrong by Optimizing the articles for the search engine so that they can rank for the targeted keywords.
