The Ultimate Hack That I Use In Writing My Blog Post In An Hour/ Less While Maintaining Its Quality.
Am pretty sure that you now know the important elements that make up a great post. Without any waste of time, let me show you the simple hack that I use to write my blog post in an hour or less.

Next is scan through the result on google the first page, look for the one that has similar headline as mine, click on it, read everything that the author has written with the intention to understand what the topic is all about and the rewrite them.
No! I didn’t say that you should go and copy the authors write up or worse case scenario, write it word for words. What I say is that you rewrite the content in your own words, style, uniqueness, and understanding.
One thing you most know is that there is nothing like original ideas, but there is surely original content. You can take up a gurus idea, remodel it, and make it unique.
First, you start with the introduction, making sure that your keywords “get six packs” appears in the first line of your intro, in your first subheading, in the body, and in the alt image tags.
If you are not fast in typing, you can choose the voice typing option in google docs under tools. What this does is it recognize your voice speech and translate it into text.
