One of the biggest keys to getting a successful blog lies and consistent writing. People like consistent writing because this means that the person whom they are reading is dedicated to that topic and has a lot to say on it and there is always something new to be learned.

When you have to constantly be churning out content in order to develop an audience and please the search engines, it can get difficult to produce content at that rate. As such, here are 3 blog writing tips to make it easier to write and produce new content regularly.
Plan Your Day Out In Advance – Ever since I started doing this I saw my productivity soar. What I do is every night before I go to bed I’ll write a todo list for the next day in terms of what I want to write about. At the very least I’ll do some keyword research to pick out my keywords which I’ll turn into titles the next day. When I wake up the next morning, I know exactly what to do and can hit the ground running which is a great way to start the day on the right foot.
Search Message Boards for Ideas – You may have heard this blog writing tip before, but message boards can be an invaluable source of ideas for posts. Look at the kinds of questions which people are asking, then turn them into posts. You can even link back to your post in that thread which would be a very effective source of targeted traffic.

A lot of marketers known as niche marketers jump into various niches to test them for their profitability, but if you’re just getting into this you need to focus on something you’re already interested in so that it will keep your interest in the early days before you have a strong following and before you’re making any money from your site.
