Want to 10x your Content Writing Game?

Here are 2 books to help you understand what you can do to improve:

1. A Self-Help Guide for Copywriters: A Resource for Writing Headlines and Building Creative Confidence by Dan Nelken.

A practical read with exercises, examples, sprinkled with personal experience. 

  1. Storyworthy: Engage, Teach, Persuade, and Change Your Life Through the Power of Storytelling by Matthew Dicks.
  2. Learn how to craft your words in a way that makes people lean in. 

However, reading books will only get you so far.

The real key to 10xing your content writing is to practice your writing and get feedback on it. 

Our team at the Habit Factory is launching a 21 day Content Club this month.

How I started my blog

Writing was always an interest of mine.

I’ll never forget the time I wrote a 20 page story for my 8th grade teacher when she only asked for 1.

To be fair, I was already 12 pages in when I realized there was a page limit. Might as well go all out right?

Fast forward a few years later, I found myself writing as a means of self growth and reflection.

Eventually I posted some of these onto Instagram, which didn’t do too well because Instagram isn’t necessarily a text-based platform.

Still, I needed a place to put my words so I bought a domain and published my daily posts on WordPress. 

However, the downside of WordPress is that it isn’t an awareness tool. If you want more attention for your stuff, you have to go to where the people are. 

That’s where social media comes in.

Fortunately for me, LinkedIn is a flexible professional platform that allows long+short text posts, photos, and videos on the feed. 

Now I publish all my posts onto LinkedIn (+ more).

I treat it as part of my blog, and I get to talk and meet with some cool people.

93% of brands and content creators give up social media 14-21 days after they’ve started.

The main reason being?

There’s not enough engagement.

Nobody is liking your posts. 

It’s hard to keep a new habit with just yourself.

Life gets in the way. 

Time management isn’t your strongest suit. 

I hear you.

Creating content isn’t for everyone. 

But if you’re serious about building your community or brand, content creation is the way. 

Kickstart your way into an engaged community with an audience who cares about your product. 

Master your brand voice. 

Gain the attention of your dream audience.

Control the ins and outs of your creativity.

Grow your business presence. 


I’m hosting a content creation club.

But it won’t just be any kind of club.

Everyone in it wants to be there because they have a brand to build. 

There will be no live meet ups. 

Only a common deadline (12AM, your time zone).

Everything online and remote.

Be there (or don’t be there it’s really up to you).

This idea will only work when there is a focused, tight knit group of people.

Anyone is welcome to join.

And to sweeten the deal?

It will come at no cost to you.

However, if you want this to work out for you, you have to put in the work to succeed.

See you there 🙂

A Writing Strategy for Creatives Who Don’t Feel Like Showing Up Today 

I’m sharing this because I don’t emotionally feel on top of my game today. 

Because let’s be really human here. 

Everyone has bad days. 

Everyone has days where we feel uninspired, tired, sad, or in a mood.

I keep a blog, so I feel accountable to my community for coming back.

Here’s what I do to show up to my writing game, even when I feel like a puddle of *r**ad**as*****

  1. Open up your writing document
  2. Allow yourself to write and create whatever comes out
  3. Don’t be a harsh critic on yourself
  4. Wrap up whenever you’re done. This can be 15 minutes to 2 hours. It doesn’t matter, it’s whatever you feel, so long as there’s something on the document that is relevant to your practice
  5. Thank yourself for showing up and doing a piece of your work. You know it was hard but it’s over now

You might be feeling like *r**ad**as***** right now, but the hardest part is showing up. 

Feeling pretty proud of myself now that I’ve finished this piece up. 

3 thoughts that stopped me from starting my blog

Before I started publishing my writing, I thought:

  1. I don’t think anybody really wants to read what I have to say (I didn’t have confidence in myself) 
  2. Is this worth my time? (There was no clear cut reward for doing this, except for scratching my own itch)
  3. What happens if what I write isn’t perfect? (My family values academics, so naturally I worked hard in school to write the perfect essays. I was scared to fail)

Now that i’ve been publishing for 3 years, 

  1. I’ve been able to learn about myself through writing my own ideas 
  2. I’m confident that I’m doing this for my own sake, to scratch my own itch
  3. I’ve learned to accept that perfect standards aren’t what I need

If you’re thinking of starting your own blog, or becoming a content creator what are you waiting for? What’s stopping you? 

Feeling uninspired? Read this

The number one way to cure a lack of inspiration when writing, is to allow yourself to produce writing that is poor. 

That means being okay when you don’t like your own work.

It also means being okay when others don’t like your work either. 

We all go through dull, grey, uninspiring periods.

Don’t let that stop you from the act of creating something new. 

What do great writers do that differentiates them from the rest?

Great writers write more than most. 

They practice more than anyone else in the room. 

They have written more bad pieces than you have pieces in general. 

They put in just as many hours as a full time job does. 

It’s the practice, dedication, and time that chalk up to great writing abilities. 

One actionable tip for those writing their first blog post

I’ll keep it short to save you time. 

It’s tried and true. You’ll hear everyone say it again and again.

Just hit publish.

I know.

Easier said than done.

But if you’re 2 edits in and are still wondering whether your CTA will work, it’s time to let it go.

And by let it go, I mean let it see the world.

When we create content, we give it a life of it’s own on our corner of the internet. 

Let it go and move on to the next piece. 

Just hit publish.
