    Here's what I do to write blog posts in less than 10 minutes

    Read my sources very carefully

    Focus on the key points in my mind

    Dictate using Dragon Naturally Speaking Each main point and why I agree or disagree and I spell out my evidence

    I do this with my mental outline.

    I can 'write' (through dictation) 1500 words in 10 minutes.

    Not bad, eh?

      Minimum 10 minutes dictation:

      According to the National Center for Voice and Speech (NCVS book sales...) the average rate for English speakers in the US is about 150 wpm.
      This must happen by osmosis:

        Your source said it, average speech rate is 150 words per minute. 10 minutes = 1500 words. AVERAGE. As in there are MANY people who perform ABOVE the average speed.

        Thanks for proving my point.

        Reading your sources is separate from dictation.

        Also, if it isn't obvious, it helps to be a speed reader.

    I use a content generator to take care of spelling, grammar, and punctuation. And because this generator creates content in a logical manner, I don't have to worry about anything other than plugging in the right keywords and making the end-result specific to whatever I'm writing about.

      Does it generate original content or does it 'spin' text?

    Know your topic before you start, plan the key topics you want to talk about, get motivated and start writing

    One tip which really helps me for my article writing is typing in my keyword into google search, then, scrolling down to the bottom, I use a few of those related searches as my H2 tags or sub headings. I find that this not only helps with SEO but also just to break things up a little into smaller manageable parts.

    I do agree with Kilgore that quality content early on is very important. Takes time and can be a drag but it does pay off down the line. Good luck.

    Another tip:
    First write down everything you know about that topic. (Or you can talk it into speech-to-text software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking, as someone mentioned).

    One thing per line. Don't take too much time to think - just let it all out, even if it doesn't make much sense or appear that coherent.

    Then take each line and expand on it (explain, clarify, etc.) to create a more coherent idea.

    You'd be surprised at how pretty quickly you can have paragraphs appear on your blank sheet.

    Why are you concerned about the writing time? One high-quality article a week is better than 10 half-assed articles a week.

    You need to focus on providing value to your readers, not how to slap together as many quick posts as you possibly can. That will never build you a long-term audience.

    For education blogs you can make test, quizzes or other tools. You can do for example 1 word problem in a posting then explain of how it's solved.

    Another option is infographics.

    I do agree -- a great post is better than a fast post.

    Start with the main subject you want to discuss.
    Think of the title.
    Do your research.
    Then write.

    It will always help if you can divide your article to sub-headings that way you will know exactly what to focus on.

    30 minutes, with research included? I don't think you can. However, if you do know the topic of your article, you can just sit down at your computer and start writing! In 30 minutes, you should be able to write at least 500 words worth of content!
