writing articlesLet me just say that I was inspired and at the same time, motivated, by Marcus Baker’s recent post, “Motivated Versus Inspired Blogging,” to proceed with my continuing topic about writing articles.

(Thanks, Marcus! And I believe this is a continuing discussion on inspiration vs motivation, too!)

From where we left off, I talked about keywords, especially long-tail keywords or narrow keywords as opposed to short-tail keywords or broad keywords, to jumpstart a writer to get things going. Hopefully, once you have the targeted keywords that you want to zero-in on, you can now proceed with writing articles effortlessly.

As per my experience, this technique really helps a lot because you are grounded to a particular topic and it’s like being akin to a horse with blinders, whose peripheral vision is purposely blocked, where you don’t get distracted by unnecessary things that pull you away from your focus. You just go on straight ahead! No making unnecessary stops and turns or detours.

The question that still needs to be answered, though, is:

  1. Hi Elmar,

    Appreciate the mention in this post. Pleased to hear I motivated and inspired you. 🙂

    That is a great list. I tried to think of something to add to the list but I can’t. Considering that list I can’t see why anybody would not start writing articles.

    Great post and thanks for sharing Elmar.
