As a business owner, creating high-quality blog posts should be a part of your content marketing strategy. That means you or your marketing team may have a long list of blog post ideas set up in a great and easy excel sheet that keeps growing and growing.

Don’t spend all of your time slaving away at your word document writing article after article.

Getting your website to rank can be the most frustrating thing for a business to achieve. Every time we ask this question, the primary answer that keeps coming back is to “just create content.”

Great! Sounds easy!

Just look at the competition, go to their blog, take some headlines, and BOOM! You have a long list of SEO articles for your business blog.

A few years ago, I was talking to my career counselor at my university. I was at a point where I was trying to figure out the answer to the question that almost every English Language and Literature major was asking — what can I really do with my life?

I remember the advisor listening to my discouraged babble about not being sure if I wanted to be an editor or just an author. So, after a few moments, she merely suggested that I should open a blog and see where it goes.
