The Biggest Blogging Productivity Hack You Never Heard Of
Welcome to episode 6 of The Determined Mom Show. This is Amanda Tento, and I am your host today. We will talk about one of the biggest blog writing hacking tips I could give you. It’s amazing, and it will save you so much time. I know many 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 are a good way for people to learn 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 will talk to you about my favorite blog writing hack.

You can get notes from your head; these apps are also available on Android and iPhone. These apps allow you to speak into it, and you can format it like your blog posts, as you can put in the headings and all of that stuff and pictures and 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 starting because it has many capabilities and flexibility. It’s a great place to safely and securely share documents within your team and with external users.
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 will 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 just going to talk about anything that you want to be in your blog post. Some of the hacks are you can say ‘comma,’ and you can say ‘space.’ You can say ‘period’ or ‘new line,’ and it’ll save you so much time if you say it.
You’ll be able to do your blog much quicker, and you’ll be able to get all of your thoughts out instead of being a typical hour. Generally, I can get all of my thoughts out within 10-15 minutes and then go back and edit and add a picture. So it is a huge time saver.
Thanks for listening, and feel free to join The Determined Mom community on Facebook. It is full of moms from around the world, just like you, who are interested in up-leveling their marketing to gain that extra peaceful time back with their families. I wish you a great week with much gratitude.
