There are two different types of content in the great big world of blog content: seasonal blog content and evergreen blog content. Although both types of content are equally important, each of them have their own set of differences. This blog post covers those differences.
We’re living in a time commonly known as the Information Age. As we all know, information is easily available at our fingertips. But that’s where it’s staying. Right at our fingertips but not in our minds. What’s happening is that we’re facing an extreme case of content overload. The amount of content that is created and shared continues to grow on a daily basis. That is excellent. Unfortunately it has come to a point where we’re surfing a tide that has become so strong, making it difficult to keep up with the current and stay current. It’s almost as if our ability to read has gone beyond literacy skills. Often times, we have the illusion of being too busy to read content. But I refuse to accept that. Not just because I’m content writer, but because I see a lot of value in taking a responsible role in creating, consuming, and sharing content. Here are some tips on how you can navigate the web and read content with a greater sense of enjoyment and purpose.
How often do you write about yourself? Not very often I’m sure. But if you’re a business owner or you’re looking to boost your career, then you need to write about yourself. Better yet, you need to promote yourself. In today’s competitive world of selling yourself or selling your services, it’s incredibly important to write an honest and compelling bio on your LinkedIn profile, job application, or website. If you’re having trouble writing your bio, you’re not alone. It truly is a difficult task to write about yourself. Here are some reasons why.
As 2014 was slipping away, I started to plan for 2015. I wanted this year to be the one I start to make my dreams a reality. After I officially launched Objective Perspective Content Writing & Editing this past January, I was equal parts excited and scared. “What’s next?” “What will people think?” “Will I do a good job?” All of these questions swirled my mind on a constant basis. Even though I’ve come closer to the answers, these questions still remain. To be honest, I’m grateful for that feeling. They are not questions of “what would have happened if I didn’t continue to take this chance?” What has kept me where I am is the the support I’ve received right from the very beginning. From family to friends to community networks who have become like my family and friends.
Throughout the course of my amazing journey with Objective Perspective Content Writing & Editing, there are a few observations I’ve collected. One of these observations is that there’s a lot more to working with a content writer than giving an assignment and then paying a bill. I place a strong emphasis on the word “with.” You’ll see why as you read further. In order to receive quality content that is customized to your preferences and values, the journey to that end result is filled with many important steps along the way.
Whether you need content for your brochure, bio, blog, or website, you may not be the right person to write the content. It’s not to say you’re a bad writer, but there is much to be gained from outsourcing a professional content writer who can highlight the professional skills and strengths of yourself and your business. Here are a few reasons why.
