When it comes to blogging, content is the back bone which has the power to do everything as a business. People do blogging for various reasons: some are hobby bloggers and few other are serious bloggers (like me?).
I used to write a lot of content in this blog and when I started this blog, I was like a kid and struggled a lot of find new content ideas – nearly 3 years passed and now I am flooding with useful content…..Even today I am not good in English grammar but I am practised to write well….with the support of my own passion !
Any one could write in this world – we have the freedom to write. However, when you have to write regularly, definitely you must need a knowledge to write as well as dedication, 100% required.
Internet is rich in information always and we could find anything quickly – its changed a lot now compared to 10-13 years before when I started using Internet.
Today the complete ideology of Internet and its business had changed a lot with the advent of new Technologies right from social media tools to blogs.
It is like any one could start a blog and shout their voice to the world.
However, when you are thinking this whole part of content generation as a business – you have to keep a lot of things in mind especially based on your ultimate goal or plan.
I do plan a lot and try to follow them strictly. Content generation is one of the major goal in my plan and recently, I started producing a lot more content in this blog than before.
I am clear to achieve the goal of “huge traffic” (reach 1,00,000 page-views per month as a first step) and to heavily dominate the niche. Interestingly, I am in a competitive niche of “money making online” and already this blog sits in 1st page of Google for many of related keywords around “money making”, “online business”.
Update: Back in early 2013, I took a break from blogging for nearly 2 Years and during the mid of Year 2015 I resumed blogging. Though my aim of blogging is still the same, I am working to create a concept around my blog (of course, with the help of content + own products). I no longer focusing on “money” keywords because I could not create a concept around it 😉
Competitive blog niche has advantages that you could keep your content generation strategy 100% up and even there are tonnes of resources already available – still there are huge demand in the market.
Okay, lets come to the topic of content types.
It is important to understand how to write content which has the power to grow your blog? and to achieve your blogging goals.
