Can you write a blog in 15 minutes?

The Marketing Compass logoThe answer is that yes, you can if you follow these principles:

* Capture blog ideas as they come to you
* You can do this via your smartphone or by using a (paper!) notebook
* If you work in a team, ensure that your colleagues continually feed you blog ideas
* If you can’t already touch type, learn to do so
* Set yourself a time limit to write a blog…
* …for example, I gave myself 15 minutes for this blog and it was finished within 14 minutes
* Write blogs early in the morning, before you get stuck into emails…
* …which means that you may have to get up 15 minutes earlier
* You don’t have to include an image within all of your blog entries
* If your blogs need to be cleared, have a pipeline of blogs
* A lot of time is wasted going over the writing and trying for perfection: you don’t have time for this
* Having said this, always allow at least five minutes for proofreading
* Although it is true that Google likes long form blog posts of over 1,000 words, short blog entries are fine
