blog writing timeLast month I shared a few time management tips I’ve applied to my freelance business as a whole. Today I’m featuring one way you can help reduce the time you spend developing new content for your blog (or blogs you manage for others).

It’s my two-for-one tip:

Take your post idea and create a spin-off. For example, let’s say your initial post topic is ‘What Magazines Editors Look for in Your Query Letter.’ Instead of racking your brain for your next topic, follow up on this post with a short interview with a magazine editor. Email interviews are a breeze – all you need to do is send over a handful of questions and then edit your interviewee’s responses for simple sharing on your blog.

Bonus points if you record the interview and make your blog post media-rich with a link to your recording or podcast. You could use a transcription service like Speak Write to make a written version for posting too.

Registration for my first teleconference Write (Quality) Blog Posts Faster closes tomorrow at midnight. The session starts at 1PM EST on Monday, July 11. This is a 45-minute session followed by a 15-minute Q&A.
