Does writing take you hours?
Do you suffer from writer’s block?
Do you feel overwhelmed when you sit down to write?
Do you become frustrated with the writing process?
Do you struggle to
I admit, that this was my reality until recently. I was stuck in a rut with my writing. I was not sure what I wanted to write about. I would get an idea, write half of a blog post and then scrap it.
Or it took me 4 or 5 hours to write a post.
Or, and this was the kicker for me, I would write a whole post only to realize that it was almost identical to a post that I wrote last year. Sigh.
Does this sound like you at all?
Or am I the only person with some kind of writing block?
I was really starting to think that this whole blogging thing might be a mistake a few weeks ago. I was stuck getting started. I have a ton of ideas, but nothing felt right to write about.
And that really bummed me out because I want this whole blogging thing to work. Last summer I had writer’s block for over 3 weeks. I lost a lot of momentum then. And I do not want a repeat of that.
Writing makes me feel better. Like, mentally better. Am I the only one? I bet you like how you feel when you write as well.
We are all here for the same reasons; to write, to help, and hopefully, to earn an income from it.
I wanted a process to follow that can help me create quickly so that I can move on
I do not want to be writing content for my whole day, every day. I have other things to do, and I am sure that you do as well.
But I totally lose my train of thought when I have to get up from content writing to prepare meals…fold laundry…run around and shut all the windows because it is pouring rain suddenly! And then open them again when the sun comes out.
And I do not want to create content every day.
I like to think of blogging as my home job, so I work it the same hours that I would work my job. I have started time blocking and I now have a set amount of time daily for content creation, and no more.
However, life can get in the way of my plans. Funny how that works. So I went looking for help to get my content written so that I can have more freedom with how my day is spent.
The answer came for me in the form of a course, and that is:

Make Writing Streamlined
Once you streamline your writing, you will wonder how you managed to get by without it, because writing content quickly frees up time to do other things.
Christina will give you ideas for how to create ideas as well as how to mine for more ideas.
Then, you get into the deep dive of content creation. You get content creation tips before you go into the writing process and then the editing process.
And you get tips on how to avoid getting stuck!
When I write now, I write. A lot. I get into that zone that I was in when I first started my blog, and it is the place that I love to be in when writing.
It is also my best writing.
I was actually able to sit down and write 4000+ words in one sitting by following Christina’s instructions.
From those 4000 words came one blog post and another one for my draft folder. That is FOUR 1000 word posts. In one sitting!
Quality long-form content, an SEO dream come true!
Serious bloggers know that over time, it is the long form content that will help to retain our audience.
If you are writing long-form evergreen content, you are golden.
There are different schools of thought on what constitutes long form, but most pro bloggers agree that it is at least 1,000 words, and over 1,200.
Yes, a lot of people do not like to sit down and read a long blog post every time they visit your blog. And certainly not on mobile.
However, many people do like bookmarking posts that contain a lot of valuable information. That is what puts the ‘authority’ into ‘authority website’ amiright?
Thanks to this course, I have stopped doing the things that were holding me back.
I get more ideas for blog posts because I am not stopping and wandering off to do other things because I am frustrated by the process. I am not frustrated by writing at all anymore.
My ideas flow. And now I get why my first blog post worked so well…I was in the flow!
If you have any troubles getting ahead on your writing, this course can help! There is also a Facebook group, which is a great way to contact Christina quickly. This link takes you to Christina’s Teachable site Raising Biracial Babies.
We all have better things to focus on than just writing for our blogs. We have marketing to do. We have social sharing. We have other stuff to learn.
I have recently signed up for Grammarly because when I am creating content quickly it is great to have some help with grammar! It is free to sign up and you can link it to Word and there is a Chrome extension if you want to use Grammarly right from WordPress! Super handy.
This gives me a one-two punch when writing following Christina’s method. Grammarly will just go ahead and scan your text and highlight anything that not quite right so that you can fix it, and it will add words to your personal dictionary to save time later.
I was able to create 2- 2000 word posts in one sitting. I can also do 4-1000 word posts, which I have in my WordPress drafts awaiting publishing- I just need graphics. That is a lot of content quickly.
It made me very aware of some of my bad writing habits so that I can actively work on changing them.
I was introduced to a new keyword tool.
I learned a more efficient way to write that not only saved me a lot of time, but it also gave me several new post ideas.
There is nothing in this course about writing style, best practices for content creation, SEO and other aspects of writing.
This course is only about writing more efficiently and developing habits that will help you write more quickly so you can move on to other things in your life.
I enjoyed learning this new skill and it has helped me focus on the task of writing. I sit down, I write, and I save the draft and edit some other time.
I recommend it! The price is $57, and it was worth it for me to learn these skills.
