6 Steps to Write A Post in Only 10 Minutes!

"The key to writing fast is knowing and perfecting a few." Alisa Brownan from projecthappilyeverafter says to be a newspaper reporter, write guest blogs and magazine articles, and she ghost and co-author books. She also claims to spend only 6-7 hours typing daily to write between 5,000 and 10,000 words a week! Article first appeared on problogger.net and if you like what Brownan advice, then follow her @alisabow: Here the 6 step system, experienced Alisa Brownan uses to write her articles quite fast: Step 1: Know what you want to say before you sit down. As soon as you finish any blog, start thinking about your next one. Go over lines in your head. Step 2: Pick the basic format you will use to organize your blog. Most blogs fall into one of the following organizational templates:
  • Q & A – Someone poses a question and then you answer it.
  • Tips: You start with a couple paragraphs of explanation followed by a list of tips.
  • Story: Once upon a time something happened to me, I learned someone from it, and now we’re at the end.
  • List: This might be a list of great websites, great books, or great people to follow on Twitter. This is where we fail way, way too much.
  • Quiz or Test: You pose a series of questions or offer a check-off list that allows the reader to figure something out
Step 3: Start writing and don’t stop until there are no words left in your head. Don’t stop for typos. Don’t stop for grammar. Don’t stop because you lose your train of thought. Insert quick notes as you write, such as CHECK NAME SPELLING, FIND URL, or WHAT IS THE WORD I WANT HERE? I use that last one quite frequently. Step 4: Read your blog from beginning to end. Fill in holes. Tinker. Replace your all caps notes with real text. Step 5: Read out loud once or twice. This will help you catch typos, pinpoint really awkward writing, and help you tighten things up. Step 6: Post it! Via Problogger

Decoding Skills

Some help along the way with a short vowel, long vowel, and consonant. Thanks to Mary Kay Linge who in her Reading Tutor points: 1. When one vowel appears between two consonants, the vowel usually says its short sound. 2. If there is an e at the end of a word, the vowel sound is long and the e is not pronounced -it's silent. 3. A vowel before a doubled consonant says its short sound. 4. When two vowels appear together, we usually hear only the first vowel, and it says its long sound(or, "When two vowels go walking, the first does the talking") 5. When a word has only one vowel and it appears at the end of the word, it usually says its long sound. 6. When c or g comes immediately before a,o or u we say its hard sound. 7. When c or g comes immediately before e, i, o or y we say its soft sound. However, there are many exceptions to every one of the rules, and learning them will only come with time and reading experience. No wonder so many struggle!

Bold Text -The Importance of Writing for Easier Readers' Scan

From our experience, we do know that writing web documents is a different process from writing for print, and if you simply move your print documents onto weblogs, you are not using the medium to its best advantage. Be aware then, If you are including textual information on your blog, you should rewrite or adapt your materials to the style of the genre.  Brad blogging is a good place to find online resources about how to write on your web site and he advises on many topics for those in the blog business. If you happen to visit Brad blogging, as you should do, you will feel immediately compelled to stay, browse, scan, and subscribe. Why? The presentation of his page is eye-catching, design, graphs, pictures, and the length of posts, so short that you won't spend more than a few seconds to get to the point. I encourage every blogger to write short posts, web readers are lazy and don't always appreciate to read long posts. So, you have to find ways of how to invite your reader
