10 Ways Multi-blog Authors Can Stay Creative and Generate Great Posts

10 Ways Multi-blog Authors Can Stay Creative and Generate Great Posts | Communication design | Scoop.it

For all those who have this kind of blog they often arise the question, how to thrive while meeting the comfort and the interest of all. This post, very interesting, will give you some information about it and encourage you, if necessary, to go outside the box... I like that! [note Martin Gysler]

 

Keeping fresh and creative is key to keeping on top of the game when writing different blogs across various sectors, and for various clients. Working with efficient workflows, time management and organization all help to keep that valuable information harnessed to be used when you need it, but how about making sure you can produce great content on time and on demand?


Keeping creative and informed means you are working efficiently to produce content that’s engaging, informative, and, of course, profitable for you. After all, time is money when you are managing a number of blogs and clients.
Here are my top ten tips for fueling that creativity, generating ideas, and managing your time and resources.

 

Make the info come to you—start mass reading Filing it cleverly: Other Inbox Dump it! Brain dumping for multiple sources Getting creative Find your zone and stay in it Map it! Reach out Step away from the machine! Illumination needs you Unblock yourself on time If you are really stuck, go outside the box and freestyle

Twitter (Trust) research: It's Where the Money & Action is

Twitter (Trust) research: It's Where the Money & Action is | Communication design | Scoop.it

Bob Brown of Network World has curated news of two very interesting Twitter research projects that caught my attention.


We all agree that freedom of speech is good,  and it's great that everyone can now  become a publisher. However, there's a double-edged sword: If we speak to a friend before we think something though, all will surely be forgiven and forgotten. After all, we all make mistakes. But if you click that Tweet or Share button too quickly, either succumbing to knee-jerk reactions or without first checking the facts, you may find the digital world to be less forgiving.


Content curators have to be especially vigilent about curating someone else's content to make sure the facts and information are correct.


I believe the research related to here is essential reading, as it is furtherment of an established and growing trend:


One relates to Wellesley College's Department of Computer Science where two professors have been awarded a near half million dollar National Science Foundation grant to:


****build an application that gauges the trustworthiness of information shared on social networks, and in particular Twitter.


This was originally envisioned as a form of spammer identification, but


****has broadened to be able to determine the past history of a tweeter and also whether information being received is available from multiple sources. 


The other brings us news of 'Tweetographer', a huge Data Mining project by two University of Cincinatti Computer Science students, descibed as:


"a real-time events guide extracted from information coming via large numbers of tweets." 


This could be available as a web or mobile app at the end of the year and one of the co-creators, Billy Clifton (his partner is Alex Padgett)


**sees the uses expanding in the future to predict election results and compiling product reviews.


My takeaways are:


**that we all need to be very aware that what we tweet today can and may be used against us in the future


**search is still very much in its infancy when it comes to engine sophistication, stay tuned.

11 Tips You Can Use Today to Develop Outstanding Content for Your Blog

11 Tips You Can Use Today to Develop Outstanding Content for Your Blog | Communication design | Scoop.it

How often should I post on my blog?... How long should my posts be?... Can I have other people write articles for me?... How far can I stray from my chosen topic?

 

How do I create incredible content that attracts hundreds of comments and shares? How do I keep people coming back to read everything I publish?

 

At some point, all bloggers have these and dozens of other questions about developing content. Maybe you’re struggling with some of them right now.

 

As we gear up for the launch of our new blog Expert Enough as part of the Million Dollar Blog Project, we’ve been thinking a lot about content strategy.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Gloria Kopp because it shows you how to create content that people will want to engage in and share.

 

Make your blog articles more appealing to your readers with helpful tools.

 

Great Content Grows Influence and Attracts Sales

 

A catchy headline and original content are essential to attracting an audience online. I agree that in order to be effective in reaching your audience you need to take advantage of the right resources.

 

Kopp provides tools you can use to make your content strategy more effective.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • If writer's block is standing in your way then you can get a little help from Blog Title Idea Generator. This resource will help you start creating original ideas with a list of relevant topics to start from.

 

  • You don't have hire an expensive editor to provide an overview of your copy. With Writefull your business can get suggestions for improvements and increase your credibility.

 

  • It's important to mix up your content and keep your audience engaged. Videos are a good way to do this, and WeVideo can help you create a professional look that is informative and entertaining.

Why We Can No Longer Rely Only On Schools And Companies For Professional And Personal Development

Why We Can No Longer Rely Only On Schools And Companies For Professional And Personal Development | Communication design | Scoop.it

There once was a time where everything you needed to know for your career was taught to you by the educational institution you attended and the company you worked for. You would go get your four year bachelor’s degree in whatever topic and that information would stay with you for a little while, then you would periodically take some additional classes offered through your company.


Today by the time you graduate with a four year college degree most of the information you will learn will be outdated and perhaps obsolete.


The world has changed and it’s up to us as individuals (and as companies) to make sure that we can change too. Organizations must enable employees by deploying the right technologies to connect people and by supporting employees and allowing them learn outside of the company. Individuals must get rid of all excuses and understand that they can learn anything they want anytime they want to learn it.

As a business owner, do I really have time to blog? I’m a business owner too, and I realize that we are already pressed to our limits for time. We are responsible for everything, including finding new business, working with our existing customers, interfacing with suppliers, running our books, and infinitely more.

 

Attempting to convince a business owner that we should add yet another task can understandably seem like a herculean endeavor. For anything that is going to take more time, the rewards must be tangible and immediate. As many of us cannot clearly identify what the rewards are that can be reaped by blogging, it is not placed high on the list of priorities. It should be...

Research Shows Divergence in Social Media Uptake

Research Shows  Divergence in Social Media Uptake | Communication design | Scoop.it

Research shows the use of social media at Fortune 500 has stalled, or perhaps even re-trenched.


This article for 'Grow' presents Data  provided by the Center for Marketing Research at the University of Massachusetts.


What particularly caught my attention is:


***The almost universal uptake of Social Media by Universities and Charities.


***The divergence in uptake between Fortune 500 companies - the "titans" of American Business, and the INC 500, comprising America's fastest growing companies


A perhaps even more interesting divergence among the Fortune 500 where:


***The top 100 companies are the most active blogging companies.


***Only 17% of the next 400 companies blog.


It would be easy to conject as to the reasons for these stark differences, but I choose to let the numbers speak for themselves.  I will, however, be on the lookout for further pieces and more in-depth Data on this intriguing puzzle.
