The Biggest Blogging Productivity Hack You Never Heard Of
Welcome to The Determined Mom Show. The only marketing podcast dedicated to guiding mom CEOs into tranquility, wealth and multiplying those precious moments. This is Amanda Tento and I am your host and today we are going to talk about one of the biggest blog writing hacking tips that I could possibly give to you. It’s amazing and it will save you so much time. So I know a lot of you are not fans of writing blogs but I am here to tell you that blogs are amazing for your website’s SEO.
They also can position you as an expert in your industry and also a good way for people to find out more about you and what you offer. So I think it’s always best to have a blog on your website and right now I am going to talk to you about my favorite blog writing hack.
You can Audio Brain Dump
You can get notes out of your head and these apps are available on Android and iPhone as well. These apps allow you to speak into it and you can basically format it like your blog posts, like you can put in the headings and the, and all of that stuff and pictures, and just basically copy and paste it into your blog, but it makes it so much easier. So the hack is voice typing on Google drive or a similar app.
So if you don’t use Google drive for anything, I highly suggest that you start because it has so many capabilities and flexibility. It’s a great place to be able to share documents within your team and also with external users as well, very safely and securely.
How to Use Google Drive for Blogging
So you’re going to go into your Google drive and then on the left hand side, you’re going to push the little plus sign that says new. So you click there and then you click Google docs. So you’re just going to create a new doc. So then that way, you know that it’s going to work, then you have your doc open, you’re going to go to tools and then click ‘voice typing’.
Then you’re going to click the little microphone and it’s going to bring up a red microphone with some circles around it and you’re literally just going to talk about anything that you want to be in your blog post. Some of the hacks are, you can actually say ‘comma’, you can say ‘space’. You can say ‘period’, you can say ‘new line’ and if you say it then it’ll save you so much time.
You’re going to be able to do your blog much quicker and you’ll be able to get all of your thoughts out as opposed to being a typical hour. Generally, I can get all of my thoughts out within say 10-15 minutes and then just go back and edit and add and picture. So it is a huge time saver.
