Generating High Quanitities of Blog Content – Set a Target

Set yourself a target of how many pages you’ll add to your blog per day or week. I aim for a minimum of 10 pages of good content across my blogs every day including weekends – I see it as a discipline and set time (usually an hour or two) aside most mornings and evenings to complete my task. Some days I set myself bonus targets of 20 or more in a day like yesterday when I did 50 because of the release of some new products on one of my blogs.

10 pages of content per day is 3650 pages in a year! If for instance each page posted were to generate you 2 cents per day 3650 pages would make you $73 per day (7 days a week). 20 posts per day is 7300 pages….you do the sums. Of course some blogs won’t generate 2 cents per page per day – others will generate significantly more – the principle remains however. Also its worth remembering that you don’t suddenly have 3650 or 7300 pages – it takes time. But if you’re willing to take a long term project and see each post as like a deposit in the bank you might just find that down the track you’ll have built yourself a nice little earner.

Setting yourself a target and making it a discipline you stick to is just one way of generating quantities of content. How do you do it? I’ll share more of my tips shortly.

  2. Hi Darren.

    The first paragraph in this article needs fixing. I’m sure you don’t mind the feedback!

    ProBlogger is a great resource. Thanks.


  3. Hi Darren,
    I’ve noticed that I tend to lean toward the “blogger’s block” side. I’ve got just one blog and I seem to wait for the “perfect” inspiration of what to write. Hopefully I can expand my idea base enough to post 10 per day as you do.
