Generating High Quanitities of Blog Content – Recruit Writers

Posted By Darren Rowse 29th of September 2004 Writing Content 0 Comments

This is the Fifth post in a series of tips on how to generate higher quantities of content for your blog. Check out the previous posts at Set Targets, News Sites and Aggregators, Start a New Blog, Break Down Your Posts and Ecto.

Get others to write content for you. I’ve often asked other people to write an article, review, reflection or rant for me on a topic that they have a passion or interest in. I don’t pay for content (some people do) but I try to make it worth the writer’s while by giving a link back to their site or by promoting them and encouraging them. I’ve also bought gifts for one or two people who’ve written me significant amounts of content over time.

Some writers will also allow you to co-publish posts. In this way they their post would appear on both their own blog and yours.

  2. Darren:

    First let me say what a great post/series of articles this is. My question is in accepting reader generated content that will appear on both my blog as well as theirs, does this not penalize me for duplicate content?

  3. i’m sad that this is the last entry in that series, but i really liked it and wanted more to read about this

    really this blog is interesting, bookmarked and subscribed to the newsletter ;)

  4. Lesson 7, on my way.

  5. I agree totally with this post. I personally arn’t that good writer in English language, so I pay for people to write content for me. It is in the end of the day a winn-winn situation for everyone.
