Here's the truth about Marcie Hill's book, 62 Blog Posts to Overcome Blogger's Block. It's not for bloggers. Really. This book is for everyone and anyone who has a big idea that they want to share with the world. Personally, I am now referring to this book as MacGyver's Guide to Getting Your Big Idea Out To The World. Let me explain why. If you've ever started writing a blog, you know that somewhere between your tenth and twentieth post you're gonna run out of ideas. It's inevitable. At that point, try as you might, everything you think of is a tired, rehashed version of something you've already written. That's when you start combing through books and articles, looking for great post ideas. Typically, what you will get is just what you would expect, blog post ideas. Or, more accurately, lists of blog post ideas. The only problem is that sooner or later you will need to repeat the process, each time poring over more blog post lists. Sounds like fun, huh!
With 62 Blog Posts to Overcome Blogger’s Block, Marcie Hill isn't offering you lists. She's teaching you to think like a content producer. That's right, Marcie teaches content generation. If you're wondering what the difference is, in simple terms it's the difference between a hobby and a business. Marcie Hill gives you eleven juicy chapters like "You're The Authority", “Hot! Hot! Hot!” and “Multimedia Posts.” Within each of those chapters are half a dozen or more ideas that will not only help you write better blog posts, but contain built-in methods for attracting new readers and engaging your audience so that they become loyal followers and life long customers.
Still not convinced? Let's dive deeper into the chapter entitled, “You're the Authority.” Marcie Hill gives you five ways to position yourself as the expert in your field through your blog, social media or other content. One suggestion she gives is to write a review comparing two or more similar things. Marcie Hill then offers several “Pro Tips” and “Considerations” so that you can make high value, comparison posts that establish you as the authority in your field. I thought of several products to use this technique with that could be turned into blog posts, video training series or even a free pdf lead generation download. And Marcie Hill offers her genius with every one of her sixty-two blog posts ideas in this book. Congratulations to Marcie Hill for an invaluable resource for writers, bloggers, entrepreneurs, and anyone with an idea too big to keep secret!
