You know you want to: Set up a blog
Even though there are thousands of answers on the Internet on how to set up a blog, podcasts on blogging, even blogs on blogging, you still haven’t done it yet.
Everyone hates first steps. It’s the first step that sets you on your path – on your way. It determines how you’re going to get there. Whether it’s one piece or several pieces. Whether you get lost or use a map or your cell phone or tablet. Whether or not you can think of something to say.
Do you have something to say? Can you say it on a daily, weekly, monthly basis?
Is it important enough to share?
Or, is there another way. An unseen way in which you can have your cake and eat it too.
There are always ways to get what you want. You can do it behind people’s backs or you can do it so that everyone knows what’s going on. It’s up to you to make that distinction.
The first way is to hire a ghost writer. Someone you pay to put together content that convinces your ideal audience that you’ve written that piece of information for them. What you provide that ghost writer entails several steps. But, before we get into that, what are the other ways you can present a blog to the rest of the world.
First way we semi-discussed ghost writing.
Second way is to buy content already written but fits what you’re trying to share with your ideal audience.
Third way is to format your blog in such a manner that it’s written with bullet points and short phrases that conveys what you mean without you having to sit down and write a formal paper.
Fourth way is do your blog via audio or video. In other words, put together a script or speak from the hip, and then speak and record your information in blog / podcast format and upload to site. That way people can listen to what you’re saying without you resorting to pen, paper, ink, or recorder usage.
Another way is by video. Prepare a script. Get your slides together for back-up and then release the video. Make it short, say 5 to 10 minutes. Something to give your audience something to look at and absorb without giving them the total kitchen sink.
Another way is do a bit of research, and then ask for permission to reprint what that person has written making sure you give them all the credit so you’re not abusing their copyright.
Ghost Blog Writer
If you decide to hire a ghost blog writer, you’ll still need some content to prepare before handing it over for someone else to do for you.
