Sometimes writing your posts for your DIY, Craft, or Food blog can be the hardest part of the process. There are however, a few things you can do to make your writing process less intense and help you write your blog posts faster.

Let’s dive in, shall we?

Tip #1: Start With an Outline

Ever find yourself staring at a blank screen, fingers hovering over the keyboard, with no idea where to start? Yeah, we’ve all been there.

So first off, let’s tackle the monster under the bed: STARTING. We all know that blank screen can be terrifying. So, instead of staring at it like it’s a challenge, start by crafting a roadmap or an outline.

Research your keywords, jot down your headings, and voila! You’ve got a roadmap to guide your writing journey. If you’re like me and prefer to dive into WordPress, queue up those headings in a draft. But it’s always good to keep that old-school strategy: use your favorite writing tool like Word, Google Docs, Pages, or even Topic, etc. Either way, having a plan in place makes getting started a breeze.

Although this is a polemical topic, you could definitely use AI to help you brainstorm the outlines of the topic you want to cover in a blog post. Or you can also use it to come up with blog post topics in general giving it enough data in the prompts so you get the most out of it.

AI is here to stay and the best we can do is make good and ethical use of it. I would never recommend creating the whole content with AI, but it could be very helpful when it comes to outlines, post ideas, filling in things we didn’t cover in a specific topic, etc.

Pro-tip: Create a reusable block pattern template with your go-to headings and layout. It’s a game-changer, I promise.

Tip #2: Recycle Parts of Old Content

Recycling. Yep, you heard me right. Why reinvent the wheel every time you sit down to write, am I right? If you’ve covered a topic before, give yourself a pat on the back and reference that goldmine of content. No need to start from scratch. Just tweak it a bit to keep things fresh.

Think about those nuggets of wisdom you’ve shared before, like your favorite specialty ingredients or supplies, quick tips, or safety reminders. Use ’em again and again, and watch your efficiency soar.

If you have a tip or tips that can be used in many different posts, use them to create a reusable blocks to put them in multiple relevant posts.

Tip #3: Break Down Your Writing Tasks

Let’s talk about compartmentalizing. Break down your writing process into bite-sized chunks. Keyword research, outlining, writing, formatting, scheduling – each deserves its own moment in the spotlight.

By focusing on one task at a time, you’ll hit your flow state faster than you can say “batch working”. Keyword research, outlining, writing, formatting, scheduling—treat ’em like the separate beasts they are. That way, when it’s time to write, you can slip into that flow state like a boss and write posts faster.

And hey, if you’re into project management tools like Asana, use ’em to map out your blogging tasks. Break it down into subtasks, tackle each one in its own dedicated time, and watch your productivity skyrocket.

Tip #4: Capture Ideas on the Fly

Inspiration can strike at any moment, so be ready to capture those brilliant ideas as they come otherwause you will forget them. Keep a notebook or a note-taking app handy to jot down ideas, snippets of dialogue, or even full-blown outlines when they pop into your head.

This way, when it’s time to sit down and write, you’ve already got a treasure trove of content ideas waiting for you. Plus, it takes the pressure off having to brainstorm from scratch every time you start a new post.

Tip #5: Embrace the Power of Templates

Templates are your best friend when it comes to efficiency. Whether it’s for recipe posts, how-to guides, or product reviews, having a tried-and-true template can significantly streamline your writing process.

Not only do templates provide structure and consistency to your posts, but they also serve as handy guides, ensuring you cover all the essential elements without missing a beat. Customize your templates to suit your style and niche, and watch your writing speed soar.

You can create these templates directly on your WordPress by converting your main structure and outlines into a reusable Block. This is what mine looks like:
