WHAT JOURNALISM SKILLS CAN BE USED DIRECTLY IN CONTENT MARKETING?

Journalism 2Original article published in The Authentic Storytelling Project by Christoph Trappe

Some journalism skills can be transferred directly to the content marketing world. Let’s take them one by one.

Meeting deadlines

Journalists are constantly faced with deadlines in a near 24/7 news cycle. A deadline is a deadline. If it’s missed, the TV newscast might be short a story or the newspaper article didn’t get edited. Deadlines mean something and are met. When they aren’t, chances are the journalism career won’t last long. In content marketing, deadlines are also important and when they are met it can set teams apart from those who see deadlines as suggestions.

Why Many Are Giving Up Blogging?

King 5The significant aim of every blogger, especially writers, is to win the heart of readers to visit their blogs. This the way to tell your visitors what you do. After all the hard work, at the end of the day, only between ten to twenty readers visit the writer’s blog. This is very frustrating indeed.

There are hundreds of articles online, giving instructions on how to attract more traffic to your site. Like many others, I have  tried a lot of them without success.

Sometimes, you might feel that your articles are boring or not inspiring, but that’s not the problem. The reason many readers aren’t visiting your blog is: You are posting an article which has already been written by hundreds of writers. Who is interested to read an article written by hundreds of writers over the same subject?

A successful blog has nothing to do with the number of your followers. You can get over million followers, yet still your blog can’t be progressing or successful, because of lack of readers. For example, it is better for any blogger to get at least between 50 – 100 readers per day, than having thousands of followers.

How many of your followers have the time to read what you write? This is the question you need to take into consideration when blogging, in order to create irresistible articles to draw readers’ attention.

Before writing any article ‘Google’ the subject and find out first how many articles are online over the same subject. If there are hundreds of similar articles online, please don’t waste your time to write or post it, but if you still want to write that particular subject, then let it be entirely different from previous published articles.

Investigative articles  are very interesting, always attracting readers, but if you are scared to publish an article over someone, organisation etc; you will never be successful as a blogger, unless you are writing for fun. Fear is a psychological disease that holds success, thus; you’re preventing your success.

I publish articles the media or bloggers dare to publish. Because that’s what many readers want to read. They want something, different, truthful, scandalous and interesting. This is the secret leading to the success of my blog, without enough followers and without paying a cent for any promotion.

If you are an effective and experienced blogger, you can see that traffic on Saturdays and Sundays is very low, yet good articles can easily increase the rate of traffic significantly on both Saturdays and Sundays. You may not know the impact of your articles on society, so never quit. Write interesting articles to be in the race.

Jimmy Cliff’s Inspirational ‘Dear Mother’ Lyrics

Cliff 2Jimmy Cliff’s classic album: Follow My Mind.

Apart from Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Toots & The Maytals, John Holt, Desmond Decker etc, and other early Jamaican musicians that provided a solid foundation for the reggae music, Jimmy Cliff is one of the  musical legends that rose to international stardom with uncountable hits and numerous albums. 

In this article, it’s not my intention to write about Jimmy Cliff’s biography or achievements in the field of music, since there are hundreds of articles about this great musician and perfect gentleman appointed ‘Peace Ambassador’ by the United Nations, but to share some of his inspiring lyrics.

In 1976, Jimmy Cliff came out with one of his masterpiece albums entitled ‘Follow My Mind.’ On this album were “I’m Gonna Live, I’m Gonna Love, Dear Mother, Remake The World, Wahjahka Man, Going Mad, You’re The Only One, If I follow My Mind, Look At The Mountains, No Woman No Cry, Who Feels It Knows It and Hypocrites.”

One of my favorite songs on this album which sold worldwide is “Dear Mother.” From generation to generation, the lyrics of this great song continue to inspire me, to love my mother more and more, since she still lives, after losing my father when he was just 43. Below  is the lyric of Jimmy Cliff’s ‘Dear Mother.’ Enjoy Jimmy Cliff’s great tunes and golden voice in his film The Harder They Come.’

Dear Mother

Do you have a dear mother

Kind, devoted and true
Dear mother I’m sending to you
Best wishes and all the day through
May your days be cloudless and clear
Bringing to you true happiness each day and night of the year

She’s my mother
And I love her so
More than any other
Anywhere I go

Do you have a dear mother
Kind, devoted and true
Dear mother may all that is fair
Come to you right through the year
While I was a child you were my god
You were always dear to me and always were by my side

She’s my mother
And I love her so, yes I do
More than any other
Anywhere I go

Do you have a dear mother
So devoted and true
Dear mother I’m sending to you
Best wishes and all the day through
May your days be cloudless and clear
Bringing to you true happiness each day and night of the year

She’s my mother
And I love her so, yes I do
More than any other
Anywhere I go, talking ’bout my mother

She’s my mother
And I love her so
More than any other, woman in this world
Anywhere I go

She’s my mother

Keep On Writing Until The Bones Are Rotten

Bones 2Photo credit: Pixgood.com

It’s unfortunate that many have already given up or quit writing, because the book which they thought could make them bestselling author, has totally disappointed them, terminating the desire to be a good author.

In a world of which thousands of books are published yearly and affected by the rapid decline of reading, many are struggling in the field of writing with shattered dreams.

What is making the situation worse, is the sick habit of some famous writers, that often used Social Media platforms to discredit other writers’ work, as a way to draw readers’ attention to their works or gain more recognition and fame.

Again some unknown and new writers that want their voice heard or recognition, resort to undermining other writer’s work on social platforms as well. I have read such distasteful comments about other writers over and over wondering: Why some people live with greed and selfishness, aiming to achieve whatever they are looking for?

As a matter of fact, if one is intelligent to write a book, that intelligence is enough to teach the person that “Success comes to people that wish others success. They should make research and find out: “Whoever digs a hole against someone will surely fall into that hole himself.”

As an aspiring writer, what pushed you into writing? What are the motives that triggered your desire into book publishing, money or fame? I’m interested in these questions, because if you’re an aspiring or new writer, entering into the field of publishing, with the desire of becoming a millionaire over night, then I’m sorry, you will end up disappointed and depressed.

This is the situation many aspiring writers are facing today. What many writers have failed to realise is that: Stepping into the field of book publishing as a new writer, is like a stranger making proposal to a woman he finds attractive. She doesn’t know you, she therefore needs more time to know your background and where you come from.

This investigation or proposal may last a month or years, depending on what kind the lady is. After her investigations, if she is satisfied, she will accept the man’s proposal and marry him. The same way it takes a short or very long time for readers to accept or reject your book as an author.

If you have this in mind, as a new writer, before entering the field of book publishing, you will always be happy, easy and relaxed, no matter how poor or fast your books are moving. There shouldn’t be a competition in book publishing. If your book doesn’t suit this generation, another generation will accept it. The reason many writers become famous years after death.

There is a time for everything. A time to sow and to harvest, sickness and healthiness. Thus; there will be a time the underestimated shall be estimated. Let this article encourage you, if you have already given up or decided to do so. Even though, writing is considered to be one of the most dangerous professions, let the writing continue unabated until the bones are rotten.

The Heart Has No Colour, No Country, No Religion, No Sex

Andrea 2

Andrea: Her wise comment inspired me to write this article.

I do write a lot, but I have to admit that some of my writings were created from comments of readers or my followers. As writers or bloggers, when we read comments on articles: How seriously do we take them, ponder over them to see their usefulness, significance and effect?

Many argue that it’s not good to make comment, but I say that It’s good to comment on articles, but if you don’t have anything significant to say, please shut your mouth, because your comment can give you the respect you deserve and the same comment can put you into a very big trouble, because of the bad things you said.

Believe me some comments worth more than silver and gold. It can change one’s life and the way you think, especially if you don’t have any love in your heart for someone. There are many problems and almost all these problems were caused by man. Pride, superiority and racism are some of the problems tearing our society apart today, yet no one wants to be called a racist.

Recently I posted an article captioned “Who Says There Is No Happiness Or Love In Africa?” The fact that Africa is a continent which has suffered a great deal of wars, ethnic conflicts, slavery and man-made diseases, many think they don’t have love for each other. Frankly speaking, a poor African can easily share his food with a friend, than a rich man in a developed country.

This particular article I wrote, didn’t generate much comment, but the only comment I had was awesome and inspiring. It touched my soul to read it over and over, allowing it to geminate in me, to add it to the little I have and share  with others.

According blogger Andrea, who runs this Italian blog: ‘Libera mente & Critica mente’:

Each person has a heart, and in each heart there is Love.

So everyone of us has Love in his/her heart.

The heart has no colour, no Country, no religion, no sex.

So Love has no colour, no Country, no religion, no sex.

Too many times, unfortunately, people forget to be human, and that have a heart…

I hope everyone agrees with me that this quotation or comment is awesome and carries wisdom? Thank you Andrea.

Experienced WordPress Bloggers I Need Your Help

Wordpress 13

I’m completely new to WordPress. It’s  about a year now since I commenced posting articles on my blog. Even though WordPress is one of the most comfortable sites to use, I’ve encountered a problem which I’m finding it difficult to solve.

About six months ago, when I logged in, I was directed to a fresh page, instead of my original platform. I mistakenly published an article, before I realized that it was a fresh page. Since then I have two WordPress sites with the same admin url address. I tried to delete the article and the entire blog, but I was warned deletion will also affect my old blog, since the url address is the same.

Now anytime I log in to my old blog, it directs me to the new site I mistakenly publish the article.  I’m not interested and want to get rid of it completely, can anyone please give me directives on how to solve this problem. I have been working on this for the past three days without solution. Some readers can’t locate my original blog and giving comments at the wrong place.

This is the link of url to the blog I mistakenly published the article: https://joelsavage.wordpress.com/2014/11/11/the-failure-of-the-media-and-the-lost-of-its-ethics-and-credibility/ and the link of my original blog.
