We can see that many bloggers, like us, of course, have started content writing in their blogs, or they write for contracts. But what is this content? Where does it come? Well, like any other forms of writing, it comes within the brain of a writer. Content writing, usually seen as a money-making idea for writers, is much more than just some contract. What content is but the voice of a person!

No matter how many articles content writers study to write an original article, the words that come out on the empty document have some originality. And that originality lies in the voice of the author. The author might not put a steady focus in the words that they are writing, but involuntarily the choice of words and framing of sentences shout their voices out. The essence of the writer takes these articles forward.

The essence of content writing

You, as a content writer, might be writing some piece of work that doesn’t fascinate you at all. Maybe you are writing about something you always love. Regardless of the topic, your opinion, negative or positive, gets embedded in the tone of your writings. One can tell if you wrote the article with your full interest or zero interest just by reading out the lines that you have written. This boring-writing happens when you write your un-favourite essay and are just writing something to fill the words.

Your tone, essence and opinions are what you need to be careful. You can not just write whatever you want because content writing might be a side-income for you, but for many who read the blogs to find answers, it is a piece of information. You can solve this issue of disinterest by treating the article as a piece of information. If you are writing about paint boxes, make sure that you are not giving out false information because some reader thinks it to be true. You need to verify the information you are reading out in different articles. That is why people say to read more to write more.

The back-end of content writing

On the front-end, content writing is all about form. The format that you are writing is crucial if you are writing for websites. There is a particular pattern so that your blog pops out when someone searches for a relevant topic. The form exists, and it becomes your duty to edit the article in a way that it respects the norms of content writing. But what is the back-end of this process? There are few things, generalised, that usually fit for the back-end process. It might vary with writers, but it is broad enough to include most of them.

1) Research

Research plays a significant role in content writing. As a content writer, you need not be aware of a lot of things, but you need to be mindful of the things that make you knowledgeable quickly, like Google! All you need to do is google the topic, read pre-existing articles on the topic to get a perspective. Now, you can choose to paraphrase the subject, but what’s the fun? Never decide to paraphrase until you have a time limit and you don’t have an option. If you do have a lot of time and options, choose to research the topics and form an understanding and perspective on the issue.

2) Deciding a narrative

Every content has a story behind it. It is the job of a content writer to write in a way that the information is conveyed. There are different ways to write an article to share a piece of information. You can choose to write directly as what it is, or you can choose to break down the data into several little bits and put it out as ‘Several things of something’. If you decide to write directly, you need to make sure that it fits the form. Form of writing according to SEO (search engine optimisation) is a topic of another article. You can read it here if you are interested in the form.

3) Choice of words

As we have discussed earlier, it is the choice of words and framing that decide your essence. You need to choose the words wisely in a way that the article is not dull and at the same time conveying more information. The most effective way of writing is by choosing fewer words to tell more. Your contracts indeed demand a certain number of words for each article. But do not just write anything randomly to extend the article. I could have written, “do not just write anything randomly just for the purpose of extending an article”. But instead of that, I used “to extend” which saved three unnecessary words that extend the work.

Write for yourself

This sentence is something that might appear as a cliche, but yet real. You need to remember that content writing is not another option to earn more bucks. You write for yourself, and you write to express. Without the expression, thousands of words you write become cannon fodder. Even if you paraphrase other articles, lift their context and paste them in your words, make sure that there is an expression of your own. Because again, content writing, like any writing is for yourself! No matter what you are writing, it becomes a product that you have produced. What great is a product that doesn’t have an expression of its maker! Embrace yourself as a content writer, because it is not inferior to any other forms of writing!

Writing an effective article is every blogger’s dream. Though many people want to write, only a few can ace the skill. And there’s a reason for it. You might have been writing for many weeks now, but still, you don’t think your article is an amazing piece to read. Believe me; every writer will feel the same, unless and until he finds out the tips on how to write an effective article.

Let me keep this simple for you. There is a simple framework to write an effective article. In this article, I will explain to you what is that framework and how you can use it in your write-ups to make an SEO-friendly article.

THE FRAMEWORK TO WRITE AN EFFECTIVE ARTICLE-

Now that you see the framework in the image, you must be able to understand that it takes a certain amount of effort to frame your article. But when you follow this framework, you will surely be able to see the difference the framework makes on your article.

Why should one follow the framework?

Everyone wants things sorted. No one likes to spend a lot of time understanding what we wrote. When we follow the framework, it becomes easy for the reader to understand the context of the article, and it might drive his interest to read the article until the end.

Will this make my article SEO-friendly?

No, there are a lot of SEO rules that we need to understand to make our content SEO-friendly. But, I will explain to you in-brief what can be done. Follow these tips to make your article SEO-friendly.

  1. Chose a focus keyphrase. It would be best if you chose a word or a fragment which you would want the reader to focus on. Make sure you use the key phrase at least 2-5% of your content. Make sure you include it in your title, sub-headings, introduction and meta-description.
  2. Length of the article. Too short or too long can make your article boring. So make sure your content stays between 300-1500 words. If you think, the content is big; you can write the topic in two parts by linking them to each other.
  3. Linking of the other content. Use links related to other articles to grab viewer’s attention. You can use the links of other websites too!
  4. Make sure your article is friendly and easy to read. Good vocabulary that is easy to understand won’t hurt! Make sure your grammar and spellings are on point.
  5. Use images that are relevant to your content and see if you can use alternative text for the same (alt-text).

Keep in mind that whatever topic you chose to write, you should have a clear opinion about that. Though our opinions change with time, the change should occur under a certain logic. Another persons’ opinion should never influence yours just because that person is well-spoken. When you try to project someone else’s opinions in your articles just because it is getting eyeballs, you lost yourself already! A writer should always have a clear mind while writing things and that’s what makes the best writer.

Though it is pretty much clear for you now on how to write an effective article, you might still face problems while writing. It is okay! You remember that quote, “Rome wasn’t built in a day” right?

This time let’s catchup with the trendy plants, succulents/drought plants. Before this lockdown, I had no idea about these tiny, little, cute plants. When I got to know much about them, I couldn’t stop loving them, and sometimes I feel I have a very few reasons, but sometimes I feel the count of reasons doesn’t matter for loving these tiny plants.
Here we go with a few reasons to love them :


Easy for Lazy:


Just like introverts, they don’t thrive on seeking attention, and this makes it easy for lazy people. These plants don’t need much care or attention like the other plants, and that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care. As the other name called drought plants implies, all you need to do is water them twice a week with a very little quantity of water. And with adequate light, airflow, and proper drainage, your plants grow without any downfall. This is so simple right, and so I told it’s easy for lazy people.

No Boundaries:


These succulents have no boundaries in shapes, sizes, colors and textures! We can find these plants in a variety of colours like purple, yellow, white, pink etc. etc., unlike other plants which are mostly green in color. And some of them do change their colours according to seasons/climate. Whether they stand-alone or placed in mixtures with other plants, they create a long-lasting visual in your space. They are convenient to pick according to our style and shape.


Magical:


These cute plants are so magical, and that doesn’t mean they make your wishes to happen. Propagation of these plants allows you to take a leaf and stem cuttings from the succulents to create new plants. Though it includes some patience, trial and error methods, it is so magical to watch these new babies grow.


Eco Friendly:


Along with many positives, these plants are ecofriendly too. Be it a drought area or if the water has to be conserved, then succulents are the best options for gardening as they don’t require much water. If you use much water, the more issues are welcomed. Thinking of the money, you will save your water bill as well!


Grow them as you Wish:

These little plants fit in just about anywhere. Want to plant them in a garden? No issues! A wreath? Of course! In Your Shoes? I bet you can! The versatility of these little plants is incredible, primarily when you use creativity in planting them, sometimes it may not work, but nothing comes out without a trial.
Above all may be a very few reasons but with no doubt, you will not fail to get positive energy looking at them. It’s just a small plant, and I do advice you to plant one at your desk/table, and this never fails to charge you.
