Where Do You Get Content For Your Blog?

I did a recent search on Google for blog content.Ā  Unfortunately I don’t always have time to blog like I would want to. Sometimes I need a little help coming up with good ideas and content so I went searching to see what I could find.

There are several sites for articles like ArticleBase.com, ArticleFactory.com, ArticleCity.com, but the problem with that is you are putting content on your site that is not unique. All of these sites let anyone post them as long as they are linked back. Google is not a fan of duplicate content so that’s not a good idea.

There are also sites where you can purchase PLR articles. This is a little better as they are not sold to a huge number of people, but they are still not unique to you. They may only be sold to 150 people, but still that’s 150 blogs that have that content on them.

I also looked into someone writing the blog posts for me. This is a good idea for unique content, but you need to have money to do that. It can get quite expensive if you want posts coming to you on the regular. I’m not saying this a good idea but unless you have a good amount to invest, then this isn’t for you.

The best way to get good quality, unique content for your site is guest bloggers. Ah ha! šŸ™‚ Sure there are some that take cash but not as much as a regular blogger. There are also WP Plugins that help the process. A couple of free places I found are:

www.myblogguest.com

www.freeguestpost.com

www.postrunner.com

You sign up for a free account, enter your blog and then wait for people to contact you or you can put in a post asking for guest posts.

One of the services that have paid blog posts is:

www.postjoint.com

All of these have unique and well written content for your blog if needed.Ā  I have had a couple of guest blog posts that have been extremely well written, a good length and have benefited my blog.

I would definitely be interested in any places you know of where there is great contact for a blog, or if you would like to write a guest post for this blog, please let me know!

 

Have a good one!

I Can’t Believe It!

Honest Housewife here!

I belong to quite a few Facebook groups about online marketing, internet marketing, etc. I was just on my news feed this morning and great day! There are STILL so many people advertising clearly scam programs. I saw a few about “Send a Text and make $200 today!” and “If you can mail out 100 postcards, you can rich too!” COME ON PEOPLE!

It is really irritating that there are so many people out there trying to take advantage of “newbies” that are just trying to make it online. Sure, there are folks that want to make the quick buck without doing any work, and in my opinion if you’re going to be that lazy then by all means, throw your money away on one of these scams. But if you really want to try and succeed in something you are passionate about, whether it be Facebook, Twitter, blogging, writing, etc. then there is work involved. There is no easy way.

Of the programs that I have been a part of or purchased, nothing has made me rich overnight. What usually happens is there are a few golden nuggets of information in them and I just use those to continue to do what I already do. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s all about learning your niche, ways to drive traffic, and then providing people with information and help that they can really use.

People will listen to you if you know what you’re talking about and can provide them information that will help them succeed. It just gets frustrating when my feed is full of crap that it makes me think the real opportunities are getting lost, and that’s a bad thing.

This is just be complaining. šŸ™‚ I want to make sure that if you are new to the business to please, please, please watch out for things that sound too good to be true, because they definitely are!

Put your nose to the grindstone, find something you are passionate about and like to talk about and talk about it to people who have the same interest. Please don’t take the easy way out. If it was easy, everybody would be doing it. šŸ™‚

Have a great day!
