The most important thing after setting up the blog is content addition. You need to update the blog on regular basis in the form of blog posts. Do remember that content need not be in the form of written words but can also be images and video.
According to Rob Benwell (the creator of Blogging to the bank), the best mix is to have text posts with occasional video and images included. Personally, I would always use one image per post; this breaks up the content and also attracts reader’s attention to that specific post.
There are a few ways in which you can generate content. Remember that you want to create the best available content for your blog as this will include more readers, visitors and in turn more advertisers and finally more MONEY.
There are two forms of content creation. You can either create the content for yourself or outsource.
DIY Content Creation:
The advantages are that it is cheap and of course free other than your time. You will meet your own levels of quality and you will know what you need creating.
It is nothing but paying someone to create it for you. Outsourcing content has its own advantage. The pros are you are free to do the other work, but the downside is obviously the cost and the problems of dealing with out sourcing the work. If you choosing to outsource the content creation than you can get in touch with loads of great writers on reputed sites like eLance, oDesk or Guru etc.
There are many online forums and discussion boards like SitePoint, NamePros, and Digital Point forums etc where you can find many people who are willing to supply good content at reasonable rates.
Keep in mind that the more information you give these writers the more on topic your posts will be. Bare in mind the unforeseeable delays and also any language barriers you may come in contact with.
