Earlier this year, we published an article called “How to Write Evergreen or Cornerstone Content”. The response was amazing. Thank you all for your contributions. I loved all of your tips and input.
Some people still had questions, so today, I wanted to take some time and share some great examples of cornerstone content.
I have been searching all week to find great examples of evergreen content and I have been searching on your blogs. Take a look at the examples below and enjoy!
Cornerstone or Evergreen Content Questions
First, if you are someone who is still feeling lost when it comes to this type of content, let me take a moment to explain.
- Defining Content: When the term ‘content’ comes up, it simply means what you write about in your blog posts or blog articles.
- Defining Cornerstone or Evergreen Content: This type of content aims to act as a guide for what you are writing about.
When you write a cornerstone article, you are writing an article that, no matter what the latest fad is, remains relevant. No matter how many years pass, the article is still fresh and the content (what you’ve written about) is just as true as the first day you wrote it.
- Gathering from Your Categories List: When trying to produce (or write) evergreen content, a quick and easy way to do it is by utilizing your blog’s categories list. Whenever you write a blog article, you can usually assign a category to it. Over time, you have created a great resource for yourself.For example, let’s say you have a gardening blog and you had written 30 articles on roses. You could take a look at all your rose articles and decide that you want to publish an article about your top 25 rose tips. Then, compile all your best rose tips into one big, beautiful article. Take time to link back to each previous article and there you have it, a cornerstone article.This is just one example on how to write or produce evergreen content.
I’m very excited to present to you 4 amazing cornerstone articles. All of these authors have done a great job. You are an example to us all.

As someone who recently cashed her savings bond that she was given when she was born, I can confirm that Sharon’s tips were true 10 years ago (or longer) and will be true 10 years from now.
- Veronica Solorzano Athanasiou from Oroklini Social Media
Veronica reminds us of the importance of being true to who we are in the ever changing, over informing social media world in her article, Staying true to yourself on the social sphere. In this article, she uses storytelling to emphasize her point. I love her quote:“I believe that you have to behave following your gut feeling. Why? With all these ‘must dos’ that surround us every day we might have forgotten what being original is. And you know what? That is who we really are.”
There really are a lot of blogging buzz words. When you are new to the blogging world, these buzz words can seem like another language. Take heart that you are not alone, and if you have any questions, I’m more than happy to help.
