Question – What do you do when you can't quite find the time to blog? You know you should be doing it at least 3 times a week, but before you know it, weeks have passed and you haven't blogged. You need a way to write quick blog posts.
Answer – You pull out the old “10 Minute Blog Posting” system that I am so proud to have created!
After witnessing so many frustrated would-be blog writers, I came up with a great way for busy people to blog quickly!
Before we can start, we have to take care of a little background work first. You have to know the theme of your blog. Do you write a blog about business, family, parenting, weddings, dancing?
Once you know your theme you have to know your keywords. You probably already know this, but if you don't stop right now and do some research to determine 3 to 5 main keywords you will use for your blogging.
Step 1 – 10 Minute Quick Blog Post:
Go to YouTube or Vimeo and find a video that is interesting and has your keyword in the title.
I searched one of my prime keywords “women business owners” and found this great video from Kim Kiyosaki of Rich Women. The video is “Rich Women – Goals and Ideals”
Tip: Create a YouTube playlist to save the videos you find that would be great for your audience. Then when you need a quick video for a blog post you can just go to the playlist to find quick content.
Now that you have your video you….. oh wait that is in Part II which will be coming next week.

That’s an excellent tip for you tube, or ezine articles Michele. I never thought to look there. Im looking forward to the future steps 🙂
Your welcome Fiona! I have to tell you that I love the name “Abnormal Marketing”. It always catches my attention. You put out some really great stuff and every time I see it pop up on Twitter I feel the need to check it out!! :)) Michele
Ezine is an excellent source for blog post inspiration. Doing a search there has given me lots of ideas for articles. Sometimes I read something and think, there’s a different way to say that, and other times I read one sentence and it sends me off on a tangent. Either way I get a post.
good information! Thanks Michele.
Awesome Rob – I am so glad you enjoyed the post. Oh and thank you so much for your support on Twitter. Michele
Hey Sheila – I am so glad you enjoyed it. The next post will be out soon and you will see how easy it is to pull it all together! Michele
I’ll back up Fiona’s comment, Michelle. And you sure know how to create anticipation and curiosity! 🙂
The 30-day blogging challenge is the perfect time to introduce your system to everyone. After all, we’re about to reach the halfway mark but there’s still a lot of blogging to do!
Anxiously awaiting part 2 — be back later!
Great tips. Have not used ezine articles and will definitely consider using their articles for my blog. You Tube has so many video to upload onto one’s blog especially if one does not want to make personal videos.
Hey Jane – Yes your right. If you look back a couple of posts you will see how I used 6 ezinearticles to create a blog post. https://decisiveminds.com/blogging-on-ezinerticles-com/565 – It wasn’t a 10 minute post because I wanted to include multiple articles but you can get the idea! Thanks for commenting, Michele
Great topic. I have yet to write a blog post in 10 minutes. I have plenty of material. It is efficent writing of that matterial I am looking forward to developing. Looking forward to your next post.
Blessings, Mary Pat
Thanks Mary Pat, I am so glad you enjoyed it! Michele
Thank you Janella – I am so excited that you were on the call today! Thanks again, Michele
WooHoo Cindy!! I am so glad you are loving the challenge. Thank goodness we have a rule that says we don’t have to blog every single day though. I have had such a busy week with my new clients and traveling to choose a hotel for my event in March – I am a couple of blogs behind but I am going to catch up right now. :))
Erje – I am glad you enjoyed the post. This is a good way to get posts up quickly on your site. To get it ranked you should be sharing it on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook and you should be commenting on lots of other blogs – they will link back to your site and help you out a little bit. Hope that helps, Michele
Just checked out this post – great info. I’d been curating content when I’m short on time, but hadn’t thought to do it with videos.
