Use Social Updates To Write Blog Posts
tips from Ted Rubin
Take your social posts from Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook and develop them into longer blog posts. Not every post, mind you, just the ones you feel really passionate about, or have gotten some of the most engagement. The blog post doesn’t need to be that long either, just a few paragraphs to elaborate upon an idea, or address comments and feedback you received on that post.
“For example, I save the comments I write in my email drafts folder and I use the subject line as a label for the topic. After I’ve saved the drafts, I can come back and turn these comments into blog posts. I can even make the comment itself the blog post. After all, it’s still my writing.”
The great thing about commenting is that folks will start recognizing your name, and it’s a pretty good way to generate material for blog posts as well.
