How to Write Blog Posts Faster (in 60 Minutes)

Before we get to my hacks to write blog posts faster, it is important to know that not every type of post can be written in 60 minutes or less. 

Extensive guides or tutorials, for example, take up far more time!

I juts want you to have this in mind! 

But now you clicked on this post to learn how to write blog posts faster in 60 minutes or less!

So let’s get right into it!

I try to give you certain time frames for each step necessary to write a solid and high-quality blog post (we don’t want to spam our audience with low-quality posts … important!!!)

This makes it a lot easier to keep an eye on your time and eventually finish up your post within 60 minutes or less!

1. Choose a Focused Topic

First we are starting with a 10 minute preparation.

What’s the best method to gather topic ideas fast? For me it’s brainstorming! 

So start off by brainstorming some ideas for your next blog post. 

You can also leverage AI like ChatGPT to get some nice topic ideas. 

Just ask AI to suggest post ideas for a blog in the (…) niche. 

After having collected some potential post ideas, it is super important to narrow it down. 

It is not realistic to write a 3000 word blog post in 60 minutes or less.

We got to be realistic!

Therefore, try to refine your topic by narrowing down to a specific angle to keep the post focused and concise.

2. Outline Your Post

We are still in the 10 minute preparation for our blog post!

To write blog posts faster it is super useful to create a rough outline beforehand. 

In your outline you list everything don you want to discuss in your blog post. 

Subdivide your point into a introduction, body and conclusion.

When outlining your post, also have a Google tab open to find statistics, quotes, or references you might need. 

To save time avoid deep dives into research at this stage. 

For this task, you can also ask ChatGPT for help! By asking for a possible structure for your post, you can speed up the whole process even more!

3. Write Your Post

We are now entering the 40 minute writing part!

Take your outline as an orientation and start with your introduction. 

Catch your reader’s attention with a nice quote or personal story and end your introduction by stating what your readers can expect from this post. 

Now head to your body part!

Here you should expand on key point of your topic. 

Try to cover everything you have on your outline, but nothing more!

Remember? We want to write our blog post fast!

Also, don’t worry about perfection. You only get to a fast pace when writing freely. 

Later on, there will be enough time to proof-read everything.

To minimize grammar mistakes and to improve your writing style, I can recommend you to use the tool Grammarly.

Having less grammar mistakes saves you time when proof-reading our post!

In your body, it is also time to include statistics, images or other references you prepared in your outline!

End your post with a short and concise conclusion, outlining the key messages of your post as well as a call to action.

4. Optimize Your Post

With a 10 minute editing and formatting part, we are now coming to the end of our post.

First I can recommend you to read your post aloud. This helps catch awkward phrasing and errors very quickly. 

When reading aloud, also remove repetitive parts instantly. Your audience won’t like those!

Then, concentrate on formatting for SEO and readability. 

Add relevant heading and subheading to break up your text. 

Shorten paragraph and subdivide huge sections in two or three separates sections. 

For more insights and advice on SEO, check out the following post:

You should also proof-read every of your posts , before publishing it. 

In this quick scan look for typos, grammar mistakes, and ensure both all of your internal and external links work.

Also check formatting, tone, and style are consistent throughout the post.

Now you’re pretty much done! Hit publish and relax!

5. Plan Your Next Post

As a blogger it is super important to set routine to maintain a certain work flow over time. 

So after you’ve relaxed for a bit, go ahead and plan when you want to write your next posts. 

It’s best to write your posts at the same time each day to build a habit.

To make setting up a routine a lot easier for you,  consider using content planning tools.

Content planning tools such as Trello, can work as a to-do list, making it easier for you to stay consistent.

When you struggle to stay consistent in content creation, consider using tools such as Trello.
