Online article authors are always complaining that they can’t produce additional articles because they’ve run out of things to write about. Well, if this happens to you, then why don’t you just read more? Why not read trade journals in ancillary industry sectors to the one that you write about? Why not read a book on the subject?
When was the last time you read a book from your own industry?
How can you be an expert and write articles on the Internet if you haven’t read any books about the subject? And just because you read one book a year on the subject doesn’t mean you know what you’re talking about.
Why not read one book a week on your subject matter? I do.
In fact, I find it rather upsetting and demoralizing that too many other online article writers and especially online article marketers read so little and write so much about things they don’t know what they’re talking about.
If you do this, then you are doing a disservice to the Internet reader, you are cluttering up the Internet with garbage articles, and you are giving either bad advice or useless information that is already available on the World Wide Web, and has always been there, even if you had never existed in the first place. In other words you are needed.
There are more good reasons to read in your industry, because it will make you think about topics that you haven’t considered yet and the more you read different sides of the debates, the better you will see the issues and therefore, the more knowledgeable you will attain because you will be thinking about this.
This will make you a better expert in your industry. If you’re going to turn off your mind and not read, and not stay up with the industry then you really have no business writing articles online and wasting everyone’s time including your own. Please consider all this.
