Do you enjoy reading a certain type of content on other blogs? What types of content do you like writing for your blog?
What is it about that blog content that you enjoy so much?
Today is our 7th video blog. While video blogging is an exciting adventure with its ups and its down, I thought it would be the perfect platform to start a discussion about our favorite types of content.
When You Are Feeling Frustrated
When you are in a hurry and blogging is something that you do on top of everything else you do, it can be hard to find topics, research ideas and sometimes you might even feel the frustration of writer’s block. Plus with summer coming, motivation for writing blog articles may slowly disappear as the weather only gets better.
One great way to shake things up is to look at other ways of writing about the same topic. There are so many different types of content and ways of writing or presenting material.
In an article published in March, I wrote about 10 Types of Content to Help Brainstorm Article Ideas. Today, I want to hear about your favorite type of content to read and to write. I know for me the articles I love to read are different from the articles I like to write.
My Favorite Type of Content to Read
I don’t know if it’s the social worker in me or not, but I love a good case study. Case study articles provide the world with an in-depth look into a product or service and allow the world to see them in a whole new way.
While I love to read case studies, I’ve only written a few. The problem I have is that it can be hard to cast a wide enough net to really get good information.
My Favorite Type of Blog Content to Write
I do my best writing when I can really mesh my own personalities and quirks into good information for my readers. I think that is why lately, I have really been loving evergreen or cornerstone content.
Evergreen or cornerstone content is content that is always relevant. These types of article could last 10 years on your blog, need some updating every once in awhile, but that is it.
I love using this format because I know that only really great information will get through on these types articles. Then I can add some personality and really have fun writing.
With warm temperatures and endless days at the pool, you may notice that your desire to sit down a write blog articles is even lower on the priority list.
So, let’s shake things up and discuss our favorite types of content to read and write. Sometimes it just takes a little brainstorming to get the juices going. Let me know your favorites in the comment section below.
