14 Proven Tips To Write Blog Posts 10X Faster

There are a number of ways in which you can write blog posts faster. Some of them are mentioned below:

1) Make A List Of All The Keywords

Keyword research is the first and most important step before you start writing blog posts.

Find out all the possible keywords around your topic and make a list.

This practice will help you to cover every single point of the topic and write a detailed blog post.

Related Keywords On Google Search

There are many tools available online that can help you generate keywords for your post, but it is best if you come up with your own list of keywords before you start writing.

Here are some ideas for what you can include in your list of keywords:

  • the topic of your post;
  • synonyms, antonyms, and related terms;
  • other words that describe the topic; and,
  • any key phrases that relate to the post's content.

In the end, you will discover that you have lots of sub-topic to cover and write.

And of course you can use tools like SEMrush, KWFinder, Keywords Anywhere, etc. for your keyword research.

2) Prepare An Outline

A blog outline can definitely improve your writing speed.

Outlining is helpful for the process of preparing content for a blog post because it can be used to organize thoughts and ideas in a way that will make blogging faster and easier.

A blog outline can definitely improve your writing speed.

Outlining is helpful for the process of preparing content for a blog post because it can be used to organize thoughts and ideas in a way that will make blogging faster and easier.

The outline is basically the “Table of Content” of your blog post.

Before you start writing you can make a note of the H1, H2, H3 heading, and other sub-heading.

This practice will not only improve your writing speed but also help you to think about what to write and include in your blog post.

The outline should include all points that will eventually become part of the blog post including:

  • Heading
  • Sub-heading
  • Bullet points
  • FAQs, etc.

I personally use Dynalist to prepare the blog post outline. You can also use this excellent tool.

Here you can see a screenshot of a blog post outline prepared in Dynalist.

3) Write The Introduction At The End

The introduction is what grabs the user's attention and makes them want to read more. So it should be concise and informative.

It should also be written in a way that will hook the reader so they want to read the rest of your post.

In my case, I face difficulties to write the introduction in the beginning because I don’t know what is written in the article.

Once you prepare the article body it will be much easier to write the introduction. It will hardly take a few minutes in writing the introduction of your blog post.

4) Write In Your Favorite Time

I love to write blog posts at my favorite time. Favorite time in the sense when you feel more energetic and productive.

I was always lazy about writing blog posts. I would think of ideas and then forget about them. The more I thought about this problem, the more I realized that it was a habit.

And habits are something that can be changed.

I started by setting up a calendar for myself and adding the topics of my blog posts on it for the next few weeks. It's amazing how much more productive I've become since then!

5) Collect Visuals And Images

Images are an important part of blog posts. They make the content more attractive and easy to read. They help readers understand what the post is about.

It is important to collect images before you start writing a blog post because it will be easier for you to find relevant images that can support your points.

Some bloggers prefer using stock photos from libraries like Shutterstock, Pixabay or iStock, Vecteezy, etc.

They don't need to worry about copyright issues because these photos are free for personal and commercial use with no attribution required.

But some bloggers prefer using their own photos, which they can easily find on their phone camera roll or on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook.

I personally use Canva Pro to create all the images of my blog.

6) Write Title And Meta Description

Writing an engaging title and meta description is very important to get more clicks on your blog post.

Otherwise, your post will just receive impressions but no clicks.

Title And Description On Google Search

If you face difficulty in writing an engaging title and meta description then you can use AI tools like Rytr, Jasper, etc. You can enjoy their free trial.

Recently, I used the AI tool to write the title and meta description of my Unbounce alternative article.

This article is now ranking in the top 10 positions of Google. That’s the power of writing catchy titles and headlines.

The ideal length for a blog post title is 8 to 12 words and the ideal length for meta description is 155-160 characters.

Make sure your title and meta description word count does not exceed these limits.

7) Keep Distractions Aside

Distractions were the primary reason for which I was unable to write blog posts faster.

I used to write 200-300 words then easily get distracted by social media apps. Now the first thing I do before starting writing a blog post is put my mobile phone on mute.

There are many distractions that can keep you from writing your blog posts. It is important to know how to focus on the task at hand.

Some distractions that can get in the way of your work are - social media, emails, phone calls, internet browsing, text messages, etc.

As a content writer, you should be highly focused while writing. This will help you to write the best content for your audience.

8) Use Voice To Text Applications

The easiest way to write blog posts faster is using voice-to-text applications. You should definitely use this method if your typing speed is very slow.

If you are using Google Docs for content writing then you can use voice to text writer by clicking on “Ctrl+Shift+S”.

Google Docs Voice Typing

The benefits of voice typing include:

Increased Productivity: You can write faster because you don't have to move your hands away from the keyboard while you speak, which means that you won't lose any time between keystrokes.

Improved Accuracy: Voice typing requires less effort than traditional manual typing.

9) Use Grammarly

Grammarly is a web-based writing app that helps people write better. It is used by millions of people and businesses around the world, including many agencies.

Grammarly

Grammarly’s patented technology checks for over 250 types of grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, punctuation mistakes, and style mistakes as you type.

Grammarly also checks for contextual spelling errors that are often missed.

This tool is available in both free and premium versions. In the initial days, you can use the free version and add the extension to your browser.

After adding Grammarly to your editor, you no need to worry about grammatical errors, sentence constructions, spellings, and much more.

10) Take Breaks While Writing

Breaks refill your energy!

If you want to write a blog post that your readers will enjoy, then you should take breaks when writing.

This will help you to avoid writer’s block and keep your creativity flowing. It also helps with your mental health.

You can take short breaks while writing by taking a walk outside or listening to music. You can also take long breaks so that you can recharge and come back with fresh energy.

I usually write 400-500 words and take a break for 20 minutes. After the break I feel more energetic, as a result, my productivity also increases.

11) Save The Draft And Read It

How reading the draft can help you to write better?

If you have the same question in your mind then let me tell you that reading the draft will give you feedback on your writing style, grammar, spelling mistakes, and more.

It also allows you to see how many words are in the post which helps you keep track of your progress while writing the post.

12) Avoid Multitasking

The problem with multi-tasking is that it is difficult to focus on the task at hand. It also means that your brain needs to switch gears, which can lead to mistakes and errors.

If we want to be productive in our writing, we should avoid multitasking as much as possible.

For example, if you are writing an article and checking your email at the same time, you are not going to be able to think creatively or come up with ideas for content.

13) Don’t Edit While Writing

Don't edit while writing blog posts to write faster. Editing is a time-consuming process and if you are in a hurry, you may end up not getting the content right.

We recommend writing without editing so that it is easier to get content out quickly. Once you have finished your draft, go back and edit it before posting it online.

When you are writing just write and don’t think about grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, etc. You can correct these errors once you complete writing.

14) Leave Places For Images And Screenshots

I personally use a technique by marking the places for screenshots and infographics during writing.

You can add the screenshots during editing.

For example, while writing this article I followed this method and left the places for images. You can have a look at the screenshot given below for a better understanding.

Space For Screenshots In Articles

You can do the same for YouTube videos and internal links.

Conclusion

Writing a blog post can be a boring job for you but if you follow these checklists you will definitely enjoy the process.

You should start with a rough outline and then you can use the outline to fill in the details.

You should also have a clear idea of what your objective is for this post and what you want people to take away from it.
