Here's How I Wrote This 1,000-Word Blog Post in 10 Minutes

Here's How I Wrote This 1,000-Word Blog Post in 10 Minutes | Tips and Tools |

Today is a little different. I'm actually not typing at all -- I'm writing this blog post by "talking it" on Evernote. And it only took me ten minutes.


I wanted to test this out because although being a Staff Writer here at HubSpot means I have lots of time to blog, I've also worked at places where I didn't have that luxury. When you're balancing 100 different tasks, it's hard to find time to actually sit down and write. (Or maybe writing just isn't your strongest suit.)Luckily, with a little creativity, it's actually still quite easy for you to blog. So in the spirit of being meta, I'm going to show you how to write a blog post without actually "writing" anything. In just 30 minutes (I added on an extra twenty minutes to give you buffer time for importing, formatting, and editing) you should have a polished draft ready to publish. So let's get to it!...

15-Plus Tech Tools To Skyrocket Your LinkedIn Profile To The Next Level

LinkedIn is the undisputed leader for business and career-oriented social networking. Some claim it is too boring, too plaid, but the network quietly simmers away in the background serving the needs of job seekers and business owners.


I am a heavy user of the service and regularly search for tools that will make it even more profitable for my blogging and content company. I explored 35-plus tools in a post at Small Business Trends (where I’m the tech product review editor): 35 LinkedIn Tools For Business.
