How I Manage My Time (as a Major Workaholic)

 

I have what they call “The inability to focus on just one thing” syndrome. Also called.. workaholic-ism (sure let’s make that a real word). It’s not just a matter of Shiny Object Syndrome (which I think everyone has to a certain point), but I really just like to pile on the work as much as possible.

I don’t necessarily recommend it, but if this sounds like something you do, you might be like me where your biggest struggle is managing your time.

I’m no expert, but since I love reading what other people do for productivity and managing their time better while working on multiple projects, I figured I would share with you what has been working for me.

1. I am a Stickler for Lists

If you don’t currently keep about a million lists, you’re doing it wrong. I wouldn’t get shit done if I didn’t have about 5 different to-do lists to focus on every day. It might seem like overkill, but I have so many projects going at one time, this is the only way I am going to get everything done.

The reason I don’t just have one daily to-do list is because it doesn’t provide enough detail for each task of an individual project. So, I have one main to-do list of what needs to be done that day. Then for each of those main projects, I have a separate to-do list that shows the individual tasks to be done.

It works great at motivating me to finish everything if for no other reason than I feel accomplished every time I can cross something off one of my many lists.

2. I Work in 2-Hour Time Blocks

This is something I have started doing recently, and to be honest with you, I don’t always keep up with it. It really depends on the day and what I have going on. But on days when there is mostly writing to be done, I find 2-hour blocks to work the best. This allows me to really sit down and get a big bulk of writing done in those time blocks, but also gives my brain and my hands a rest from all the typing.

Working in time blocks lets you set a different project for each time block, but you can decide on how long they should be. I recommend a short break in between each one, but if you have a habit of a “quick break” turning into a “short 5-hour Netflix marathon”, you might want to time them.

3. I Get Work Ready the Night Before

If there is one thing that helps the most (aside from my lists), this is it. It’s something I noticed over time based on my own personal habits. You may love spending the first hour every morning just working on what has to be done that day, that’s great! Congrats on being better than the rest of us 😛

For me, I have noticed if I don’t start my work day on the projects that need to be done immediately, I get lazy and my brain has a hard time focusing. What works for me is doing all the prep-work, whether it is making detailed lists, researching articles, or outlining blog posts the night before, so that when my work day begins in the morning, I just open up documents and go.

4. I Reward Myself for Finishing Projects

This is something I do when I am not working in strict time blocks, so really it is an alternative to that. There are some days where time blocks don’t work because I have all these mini projects, not necessarily a day that includes 12 hours of writing. On these days, it works better when I work on one project as quickly and efficiently as I can, then reward myself with something. As a TV junkie, it’s usually an episode of something on Netflix, but it can be anything you want. When I get into a really good book, it’s sometimes reading a chapter or two between each mini project I do throughout the day.

Sometimes playing tricks on yourself works best.

5. I Hit My Morning Routine Hard

I have talked about my morning routine before, which is really how I am getting ahead with work right now. I was stuck for a while in a huge rut where I had no motivation and massive burnout. I still do get burnout sometimes since I try to do too much, but for the most part, my morning routine has improved my work days.

Basically what I did is add some tasks to do right when I wake up, from doing a morning workout to journaling and sometimes doing motivation – in the hopes I won’t fall asleep in the process.

I’m going to sound like a broken record here, but that’s because it’s important – You have to do what works for YOU. If some things on this list won’t work for you, your lifestyle, or your schedule, don’t do them! Just find whatever helps keep you motivated and helps you to manage your time throughout the day.

My Top Content Writing Tips

 

 

Hi Friends!

I’m back today to help you with your writing. Even if you like to use PLR for the majority of the content on your blog, there are going to be moments when you need to some writing on your own. This might be blog posts when you can’t find the PLR you need, editing your current PLR, or writing your emails.

I put together some tips based on things I personally use, and that I highly recommend others try out. You definitely don’t have to follow every single one of them, since we’re all different, but these are things I do on a daily basis.

1. Write Your Intro Last

One of the first things I learned in my writing career is that I have trouble starting things. It doesn’t matter if it is the intro for a blog post, the first line in an eBook, or the first sentence for an email I send out. I really struggle with those first few sentences. So, what do I do? I skip it and do it last!

If you are someone that takes longer to write simply because you don’t know how to start, then skip it for now and write the easiest part of the content. This might some of the headers and sections, or even the conclusion. Plus, once the rest of the content is done, the intro paragraph is actually much easier to write since you know what angle the content has taken.

2. Find Your Writing Sweet Spot

One of the biggest surprises in my writing career is the fact that apparently I’m a morning person. I used to be a “Wake up at noon and still be tired” type of person. I have no idea how I became someone who loves getting up early and working right away. When I started my full-time freelance career in 2010, I figured out pretty quickly that I no longer minded getting up early. I actually quite enjoy it. It’s something about those first few hours of the day before everyone is up, when the dogs are still too tired to want to play, and it’s dark and quiet, that is optimal for me.

But this isn’t true for everyone. You have to find your own writing sweet spot. This is the time of the day, the situation, and the environment most conducive for writing. Not just when you feel more productive, but when your brain and body can work together to get the writing done. I go through phases throughout the day. I like to do most of my PLR writing in the morning, which is when I can get it done quickly and the quality is always better. At night, I am better with the more creative and humorous writing, so this is when I do my emails.

You have to really listen to your mind and body, experiment, and figure out when and where your writing is best.

3. Ignore the Errors for Now

It is tempting to correct errors you make while writing, but I personally believe it interrupts your flow. You may have other writers who prefer to correct as they go so that they have less proofreading to do later, but I find it to take away from my work. If I am constantly fixing typing errors or changing my word usage, it gets me out of the writing mindset. I find that it works much more efficiently if I just leave them, keep writing, then fix them all at the end. At the very least, just fix the errors after each section instead of after every single word or sentence.

4. Research and Outline Beforehand

Before you write, make sure you know exactly what you’re writing about. You would actually be surprised by how many people write a blog post or article or other type of content while researching. I don’t understand this concept, I’ll be honest. It makes no sense to me.

What I do is work in batches, whether it’s all the articles for a PLR pack or a set of 5-10 for larger bundles and launches. I research everything, then I outline each article I am working on. By the time I’m ready to write, I just work one section at a time until I’m done. It is so much easier.

5. Improve Your Typing Skills

When you can, I would try to work on your typing speed if you think there is room for improvement. There isn’t going to be a magical typing speed that is ideal, but you could always type a little faster. I think a big reason I can get a lot done is because I do tend to type of the faster end of the spectrum. And all you really need is practice! The only reason I can type 100+ wpm is because I worked several years of data entry followed by 10 years of writing. That is a LOT of practice.

To test your speed, I always recommend typingtest.com. They have different tests to choose from, it’s always free, and it is also good for practicing.

6. Write in a Smaller Font

This is one of those tips you might find to be a little strange, but I’m also a little strange, so it makes sense. When I am done with my PLR, I always change it to Arial 12. This is a good standard font size and one that is easy to read. Plus, if anyone ever prints out something I write, it looks great on paper.

The problem is that when I am writing at such a large font, it just distracts me. I have no idea why. I prefer to keep Microsoft Word at the standard Calibri 11 that it is on when you first open up the document. It’s not so much in your face and it is easier to separate paragraphs into reasonable lengths. Again, I know this is odd, but it totally helps me.

7. Minimize ALL Distractions

I think one of the hardest parts about writing is that there are a million distractions. You could be writing PLR, an email, or a novel, and the distractions are just as frustrating. If you have finally found your groove and your magical writing zone, the last thing you want to do is keep getting interrupted.

I recommend shutting down and turning off everything. The only thing you should have open on your computer is your word processing program. Turn off your phone, close all the apps on your laptop, close down the browser, turn off the TV. Since all your researching is done, the browser should not be necessary.

8. Read it Out Loud Before Publishing

When you get to the end of writing your content, you will then read it through a few times to catch any errors you might have missed. You can either do this manually or by using your word processor’s Spell Check function. However, I still recommend reading it through one more time, preferably out loud, or at least without skimming. Read it like you would a novel.

This helps you catch a lot of minor errors or things you want to change. You might have used a word too often, want to adjust some sentence structure, or change your voice in one of the sections. So much can be fixed just by reading your own stuff.

*9. Run it Through Copyscape

Always remember to run your completed content through Copyscape before publishing! Copyscape is only 5 cents for each time you check something and is well worth it. I know there are other plagiarism checkers, but I find this one to be the most accurate. Even if you didn’t plagiarize, sometimes your sentences can be too similar to something already on the internet, and it creates a problem.

That’s it. I hope this helped!

 

Why I Love Coloring Books for the Social Anxiety Niche

 

Yesterday, I told you about my brand new product, Social Anxiety. I know I have mentioned it before, but as someone with social anxiety (and 2 other anxiety disorders, and depression), I feel like I have a good handle on it. Like.. I’m not going to be making small talk with strangers any time soon, but I no longer feel like my heart might explode every time I walk outside.

Progress.

In terms of what you can promote with this niche, there is TONS. Books, fidget toys (fidget spinners anyone?), sketchbooks. But my personal favorite is coloring. I remember making a joke about wanting to hide in a fort with a coloring book whenever I got anxious. I’m super pissed I’m not being credited for inventing the adult coloring book and the rise of fort popularity. Oh well, moving on.

Here are 3 reasons I love coloring books for social anxiety (and why you should promote them):

1. It is the Perfect Mindless Distraction From Panic. A lot of times, people with social anxiety don’t just get anxious feelings and panic attacks during the actual social situation, but before. You know you are about to go out to a busy restaurant or for some people, just go outside with people, and it is terrifying. This creates a lot of anxiety before you step outside your front door. Coloring books are awesome for relaxing you.

2. Coloring Books Are Convenient. This is why I think you should promote them, and why I have tons of them at home. They’re easy to find, relatively inexpensive, usually small enough for most purses and handbags, even thin enough to fit in your laptop case. You don’t need much aside from some colored pencils (or crayons if you want to be super old school), and you’re good to go.

3. They Give You Something to do in Social Situations. This is what I personally think is the best part about them, and what people without social anxiety don’t realize. When you are caught in a social situation you don’t want to be in, like on the train or a packed airplane, you don’t want to make small talk. You don’t want to constantly pretend like you’re checking your phone even though you’re not. You just want to hide in your safe little bubble and ignore everyone. COLORING IS PERFECT FOR THIS.

The adult coloring book phenomenon is the best thing to ever happen for people with anxiety. I’m not above using the Frozen coloring book I “borrowed” from my neighbor’s kid, but I also like to pretend I at least have my sh*t somewhat together. If you have a coloring book that says ADULT on it, that counts right?

New PLR in the Store: Fatty Liver Disease Prewritten Articles

 

 

Get 10 brand new pre-written articles all about fatty liver disease.

Now that I live with my sister, I get to watch whatever she is interested in. That means a lot of reality shows. But also – she loves Dr. Oz. While I am not a huge fan of ‘talk shows’, I do like that he tends to cover trending topics in health. Which is how I learned about fatty liver disease.

If you are interested in adding a hot, trending health topic to your blog or letting your subscribers know about it, I highly recommend this one.

This PLR pack comes with the following 10 article topics:

1. Types of Fatty Liver Disease (402 words)
2. How is Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Different? (420 words)
3. Signs You Have Fatty Liver Disease (437 words)
4. Foods to Clean Out Your Liver (420 words)
5. Lifestyle Changes for Managing This Disease (406 words)
6. Superfoods to Help With Fatty Liver (416 words)
7. What to Avoid if You Have Fatty Liver Disease (414 words)
8. Detox Drinks for Your Fatty Liver (444 words)
9. Herbs to Clean Out Your Liver (454 words)
10. Low-Carb Tips for a Fatty Liver (400 words)

Ways to Use This Pack

When you are working with pre-written articles, I find them to be the most versatile. You of course can leave them as articles and post as blog posts to your blog, but you also have some other options. I think these work great as:

Autoresponders – Teach your list all about fatty liver disease, while also including some promotional links in each email. You can also split these up into 5 autoresponders, and 5 blog posts.

Opt-in Report – The PLR articles can also be put into a report. Each article is a little over 400 words, which is the perfect length for each page of a report. You can do a 10-page report very easily, or longer if you decide to use images.

Part of a Larger eBook – If you want to expand on this topic, you can also do a longer eBook. If you want to do an eBook, I would do one all about liver health, then have fatty liver disease just one chapter in your book.

What Can You Promote?

I know this question is going to come up, so I thought I would address it now. The good thing about the topic of fatty liver disease is that most of the treatments are related to changing your diet, drinking water, exercising, and using herbs. Here is a small list of the many things you can promote:

  • Digital and physical books on liver health, dieting, exercise, or weight loss
  • Water infusing cups and pitchers
  • Herbs and supplements
  • Blenders, juicers, and cooking appliances for healthy eating
  • Exercise accessories and equipment

My Morning Routine for Better Productivity | Health & Wellness PLR

 

Earlier this month, I wrote an email about how I have been boosting my productivity lately. This also happens to be one of my favorite things to talk about, aside from food and dogs and also food. You can read the email here if you missed it.

To be completely honest with you, I have become a little obsessed with productivity. I like to push myself and see how much I can actually do during a typical work day. I feel like if I wrote 20 pages yesterday, I should be able to write 21 today. That seems logical, right? I don’t seem to have a firm grasp on how time works and that you don’t just get more of it as long as you’re motivated 😉

I have also discovered that I am a glutenous person. I always have to have more, more, more. I need to do more and earn more and write more. While it can be frustrating sometimes, it definitely keeps me on track (mostly).

Did I have a point? Yes. My morning routine.

As I mentioned in that email, I have started a new morning routine. I originally did it completely on a whim because I heard someone talk about The Miracle Morning book by Hal Elrod. I love me a good self-help book and almost never do what they tell me, so I figured why not continue the tradition?

I don’t do everything he tells you to do – which is basically to start a new morning routine for happiness, success, etc. I’m so good at book reviews, you guys. But it did encourage me to try some new things in the morning.

It used to take me forever to just get going in the morning. While I can technically work any time of day, I do best in the morning. I have somehow turned into a complete morning person where I’m awake and alert immediately, even before coffee.

I know. Freak.

So, to get the most done, I have figured out I need to start working pretty much immediately after taking the dogs out. This is what my current morning routine (for productivity) looks like:

The dogs wake me up at roughly 4am. Yeah. No, you read it right. FOUR in the morning. I take them out, then climb back into bed. This is where I used to go back to sleep until 8-ish, but now I stay up. And this is where my morning routine really starts.

I have 10 minutes of meditation. When I say ‘meditation’, I mean, ‘sitting quietly with my eyes closed, while focusing hard on not focusing on anything and threatening myself to stop thinking about work for 5 damn minutes’. It’s a work in progress.

Does it help? I don’t know. I still do it though. Plus, this combined with breathing exercises are supposed to help with my anxiety.

Next up is journaling. I love journaling. I love writing about it. I love doing it. I love starting new journals, getting about 1/3 of the way through them, then throwing them in a box so I can start a new one. That must be how sports people feel when they get new sports things. I clearly know a lot about sports.

I don’t set a specific time for this. It basically has become my ‘brain dump’, as one of my lovely subscribers put it (thank you!). Anything that is on my mind, good or bad, stressful or not, I write down. Some mornings I complain to my journal and force it to listen to my petulant whining. Other days, I start the day feeling hopeful and excited about work, so it’s all about what my next steps are in my business.

This is probably one of the best things I do that helps get me ready for the day.

Then I work on my to-do list for the day. Sometimes I combine this with my journal, but not always. I might talk about what I want to do for the day in the journal, but I need a more structured list to get everything done. DO IT. Seriously. If you don’t currently work off a to-do list, how in the world do you get anything done?!

If I could be best friends with things that aren’t people, it would be journals and to-do lists. Put it together however you want. Use pen and paper, write it in your planner, use Evernote or just a notepad on your computer. I am personally a fan of OneNote, because I can access it anywhere I have Microsoft Office.

Here is a sneak peak at my Saturday to-do list:

I put X in place of some of the titles of work I’m doing since it’s not all for my store (I still do ghostwriting on occasion), but you get an idea of what a typical weekend to-do list looks like for me.

*Note: I usually have a separate list for daily stuff like workouts, errands, etc. This is just my work to-do list.

Lastly, I do my morning workout. The final part of my morning routine is my workout, since after that I will take a shower, grab another cup of coffee, and then start work for the day. Depending on the day, it might be a short, 10-minute yoga workout, going to the harbor for a 3-mile walk, or just some bodyweight exercises when I’m pressed for time (planks, lunges, squats, burpees).

It’s hard to get my ass up and do the actual workout, but I always feel better afterward. It gives me energy for the day, plus if I get super lazy in the afternoon, I know I at least did something good for my body that day. And if it raises my metabolism, then cool. I love bonus health.

How long does it take? From start to finish, my morning routine can range from 1-2 hours. There are a lot of factors involved, like how long it takes me to actually get out of bed, how long my workout is, and whether or not I accidentally fell asleep during meditation (it happens often).

I started doing this just to get a better routine and schedule going, but in the process, I figured out it does wonders for my productivity. As you can see from my to-do list, I work a lot. And that’s a weekend list. I do more during the week. If what you’re doing right now isn’t working for you, why are you still doing it?! I ask myself that question often, usually when I’m crying about being fat with a donut in my mouth, but that’s beside the point.

I hope this helped. And if it didn’t, were you at least moderately entertained?

3 Ways to Use the Apple Cider Vinegar PLR Report

New PLR Report: Apple Cider Vinegar

I have a new PLR report in the store all about Apple Cider Vinegar. I am really excited about this one because not only do I think it can be helpful and has tons of uses, but I have started adding ACV to my life as well. I know your readers will enjoy the health benefits.

This is an 8-page report with 7 sections and 2,945 words. It goes over the basics of ACV, plus the health benefits, and a lot of different ways you can use it. I wanted to give you some options for how to use this report, but first here is what you get in the report:

1. The Health Benefits of ACV
2. Beauty Uses For Apple Cider Vinegar
3. How Apple Cider Vinegar Can Help With Weight Loss
4. Easy Smoothie Recipes With ACV
5. How to Detox Your Body With Apple Cider Vinegar
6. Salad Dressings That Use Apple Cider Vinegar
7. What to Add to Your Apple Cider Vinegar Drinks

3 Ways to Use This Report

I love writing PLR reports because they have so many uses. You can use them as a content upgrade to get more email subscribers, or just give them away as a nice gift for your current subscribers. Here are three more options:

  1. Turn it Into a Blog Series

The first thing you can do is break up the report into its 7 sections, and use each of these sections as a different blog post. I would keep the first section as the first blog post, which introduces your readers to ACV and its benefits, but the rest you can choose the order.

  1. Incorporate an Email Series

Another way to use the sections individually is to do an email series instead. The other option is to do the blog series, then incorporate emails for each blog post that correspond with it, and also get people to go over and click on the posts. For example, when talking about detoxing your body with apple cider vinegar (section 5), the email that day can be about different natural ways to detox your body, then link to the ACV blog post.

  1. Add it to a Natural Health eBook

If you want to create something a little more substantial, take this report and turn it into one chapter in a book all about natural health remedies.

As you can see, there is a lot you can do with this one!

5 Keyboard Shortcuts That Improve My Productivity

 

 

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to talk a little bit about typing speed. Even if you buy a lot of PLR for your blog (which I highly recommend of course), you probably have some blog posts you are writing yourself, not to mention the emails, and PLR you are editing. If you find it a struggle to type faster in order to increase your productivity, I really think keyboard shortcuts are where it’s at.

I know when I first started typing, I preferred using the toolbar, assuming it only took a second to click something. While that’s true, it adds up. When you start getting used to keyboard shortcuts, suddenly things happen almost instantly and you can just keep working. Plus, if you use a laptop without a mouse, it takes a lot longer to move the mousepad and click on a toolbar, so keyboard shortcuts seriously become your new best friend.

Here are the 5 keyboard shortcuts I personally use and find the most helpful:

Ctrl+Z – This is probably the keyboard shortcut I use the most when I’m writing. We all make little typing mistakes, especially when we’re trying to type as fast as possible. A super easy and quick way to erase the last error you made is to do Ctrl+Z. This will erase the last string of words you types, whether in Microsoft Word, WordPress, or directly in your email software. Sometimes I will be trying to select a sentence of text to move it or get rid of it, and I will accidentally click the wrong place, and it rearranges the entire sentence. It is soooo annoying. But if you Ctrl+Z, it is a lot easier to correct and start again.

Ctrl+X – I’m sure many people use this one, but it is definitely worth listing for those of you who don’t know about it. I use Ctrl+X quite often, as it will cut any text you select, so that you can Ctrl+V to paste it somewhere else. I also remember the days when I would try to copy/paste text, then have to go back to the original placement for that text and delete it. Don’t waste the time! This really improves your flow and once you use it a few times, it just becomes automatic where you’re not trying to remember the command.

Ctrl+S – Ctrl+S is for Saving your current document. I use it in Microsoft Word, but I’m sure it applied to other word processing programs as well. Yes, it probably doesn’t take that long to click on the little Save icon, but I still prefer using the keyboard shortcut. I can save the document in the middle of working on something just in case my computer poops out on me and I don’t want to lose my work, plus when I’m done, it is super quick to save it and move onto the next one.

Shift+Enter – These next two keyboard shortcuts are more for WordPress and other online usage, not necessarily writing something in a word processing program, but I do use them in Word sometimes. With Shift+Enter, what it is going to do is allow you to move to the next line, but without a space.

Sometimes if you copy/paste text from Word to an email, or say a WordPress blog to Microsoft Word, the spacing is off. Even if you mess around with spacing in Word, it can be time consuming. If when you press enter, there is too big of a space between the lines, just Shift+Enter, and they will be closer together. When adding a product, I use it pretty often if I’m doing a list or in the short product description.

Shift+Tab – This is going to be most useful when you are entering information in a form online. But I think it applies since productivity is about doing things as quickly and efficiently as you can. What Shift+Tab does is go back to the entry you were previously on. For example, if you are filling out a form, and don’t want to click to each box in order to enter information, you can just hit Tab to move to the next box. Now if you made an error in the box you were last in, and don’t want to click on it, just Shift+Tab and it goes back to the last box.

I first started using Shift+Tab when I worked data entry – which I did for about 5 years before freelancing – and holy crap, it was a miracle. I still use it when entering forms online, such as when making online purchases and entering my personal info.

Those are my favorite keyboard shortcuts that really do help with productivity and typing faster. Are there any others that you like to use?

Why I Don’t Outsource My PLR Content

 

Hellooooo

I have something different for you today 🙂

It has been about 10 months since I have had my PLR store, but nearly 10 years of freelancing and ghostwriting. So, I thought I would share my perspective on outsourcing, especially in the PLR world.

More than once, I have had emails from new contacts who ask if I outsource my PLR content. The short answer is no. The longer answer is, no, but I’m not ruling it out.

I want to make this very clear: I have no problem with people who choose to go this direction. In my opinion, providing you with PLR, whether I write it myself or not, is still a form of outsourcing. I am writing content you are using for your blog. You are outsourcing this work to me in a way, depending on how you look at it.

I think ‘outsourcing’ has become a dirty word over the years, even though you are essentially just paying someone else for a service.

Why People Choose to Outsource

When you think about PLR providers or anyone else that outsources some of their duties, you have to look at the bigger picture. Unless you also sell PLR, you might not realize everything that is involved. These are the basic steps just for adding one small PLR pack like I have in the store:

  • Brainstorm the topic
  • Come up with article titles
  • Research each article
  • Write the articles
  • Edit/proofread the articles
  • Zip up the content
  • Add it to the store (this involves multiple steps)
  • Write the email

This doesn’t even begin to cover the launches, like those on JVZoo and anything with a sales page. That takes a lot more time, especially with all the extra content that PLR providers often give you.

I think the #1 reason people probably outsource is lack of time. It is not that they don’t want to write or don’t want to do the graphics, but maybe they just don’t have the time. There aren’t always enough work hours in the day to get everything done, and this is going to be different for everyone. We all have our own goals, business plans, personal lives, and schedules.

Aside from that, I think the next most common reason people outsource certain duties is because they know where their skills are, and where they are lacking. They want to provide you with the best content all around, so if they know they can write well, but their marketing skills are a little lacking, they would outsource marketing.

My Thoughts on Outsourcing

Everyone has their own skill set, many of whom are in the same industry. In PLR, there are a lot of different experts. Researching and brainstorming experts, writing experts, editing experts, web experts, graphics experts, and marketing experts.

Someone who is insanely good at marketing might not have the time or the skill set to be a writer, so what? They can pay a good writer to help them, use their marketing skills to sell PLR, and voila. The person who is paying for that PLR gets the same top-quality PLR, regardless of who wrote it.

I know PLR providers that outsource, and those who don’t. They all have fantastic content.

A Unique Perk of Outsourcing

One thing to consider before I tell you why I personally choose not to outsource is that you can get more original PLR content. This is especially true if a PLR provider is using more than one ghostwriter to help them with their content. Instead of having the same style and voice in every piece of content, the content has a little more variety.

If you buy all your blog posts from the same provider, you probably want them all to sound the same, i.e. your voice. But that’s not always the case. Someone with multiple niche blogs wants them to be a little more varied, so when someone is using a ghostwriter, you know there is more variety in the quality of the content itself. This can be a perk.

Why I Don’t Outsource (Yet)

The simple answer to this question is that right now, I’m not interested in outsourcing. But it does get a little more complex than that, and has to do with my personality and where I want my business to go. So here are the main reasons I don’t outsource at this time.

I can write. Am I the best writer? Of course not. There is always someone better. The thing about writing, especially content writing, is that everyone brings something to the table. I happen to have more of a casual, conversational style of writing, which works well for PLR. If that is where my main skills are, it makes sense I would do it myself.

I like to write. It is also something I (mostly) enjoy. There are definitely days where I’m exhausted and stare at a blank screen for hours. But honestly, that is more because I’m overwhelmed with all the other stuff that goes into running a PLR business, and less because of the writing itself.

I have plenty of free time. I’ll be honest with you – I have tons of free time. My only responsibility is having 2 dogs, and they pretty much just do whatever I’m doing. Right now I’m sitting on the couch, and they’re next to me on either side. Easy peasy. At this point in my life, it just makes more sense to me that I would do everything myself if I am capable and am not pushing myself too much.

I want the validation. I need the validation. I crave it. When someone emails me to let me know they liked something I just put out, I want to know I’m the one that created it, wrote it, and and put it all together. I not only don’t want credit for what someone else wrote for me, but I want all this hard work to be validated with something I did with my own brain. It’s just a personality trait (or flaw maybe), and it took me a long time to realize it was something I was constantly looking for.

It makes better financial sense. Naturally, when you outsource, you are cutting your profits. The amount your profits are reduced depends on how much you pay someone to outsource for you. For me, it’s just not something I am willing to compromise for.

So that’s what I think about outsourcing, and why I don’t currently do it 🙂 What do you think about this topic?
