Most people probably don’t think too often about how hard it is or how long it takes to create great content. After all, the Internet is full of content creators and publishers competing for attention.
Large websites will often have budgets and teams of dedicated writers. Some can employ writers full time, while others will have people adding content to their website as regular or part time external contributors (it’s not uncommon for certain websites to have dozens of contributors).
However, most small-time bloggers write their content themselves. They also understand that the task of blogging isn’t just about writing; there’s significant complimentary work to be done to ensure the words reach their intended audience.
Titles need to be brainstormed and research needs to be carried out. Then comes the writing process; often, blogs need images and graphical elements to complement the words, and these could be anything from relevant stock photography to self-designed graphics or mind maps. Of course, for bloggers who don’t have much experience with graphic design, finding great imagery can be very time consuming.
So, what am I trying to say here? Let’s put it like this: there’s an awful lot of hard work that goes into blogging and it’s therefore no wonder that small-time bloggers often find it hard to regularly update their blogs.
