How to Write Your First Article about Your Niche
Lets face it even professional writers get writers block. The hardest part about writing is coming up with a topic to write about. But there are ways of breaking the ice.
First just think about a problem you had that you solved. Most likely others have struggled with the same problem and they are looking for an answer. People are always searching for answers to their problems.
Another way to break the ice is to go to forums that talk about your niche and see what people are talking about. Work on coming up with 5-6 different topics of discussion and write them down.
Stick with a topic that you feel you can write passionately about
If you still don’t have a subject you feel passionate about you can do random searches online (AOL has a nice colorful site), visit off topic forums, or read online newsletters or magazines related to your field of interest. This type of activity can help you brainstorm.
Ok so let’s get to the actual writing. In order to make the job seem smaller you will break it into smaller chunks.
Here are the main sections:
A good way to know that you have picked a great title is make sure it sounds convincing to the reader. This can mean you can provide them with a solution to a specific problem. For example “Stop Your Dog From Barking in 3 Easy Steps”
If you are using Microsoft Word go to Tools – Word count, and it will count them for you. When using keywords a good rule of thumb is use 2 to 3 keywords for every 100 words.
Using too many keywords will make your article look like spam.
Your Resource Box:
So many people will make the mistake of just listing their web site name. This is the only place you have to promote yourself and your websites(s) so be a little aggressive.
If you want someone to click on your web address you should ask.
