  5. Welcome to the #SocialCafe Chat at our weekly Tues 6p PDT / 9p EDT slot. (Note: This time slot will be changing mid-June)
  6. Q1: What challenges do you face with developing content for your blog or articles on the ‘net'? #socialcafe
  7. A 1: When you look for ideas on the web, you tend to think everything's already taken up. #socialcafe
  8. Sometimes just browsing through existing write-ups can give you great blog post ideas. #socialcafe
  9. Q1 What challenges do you face with developing content for your blog or articles on the ‘net? #SocialCafe
  10. If u still struggle, try taking an existing post, and tailoring it to make it yours. #socialcafe
  11. By existing post, I mean something someone else has written... #socialcafe
  12. @Zen_Ameer #socialcafe A1) Identifying good ideas & producing them in a timely manner
  13. @Zen_Ameer A1 having enough ideas to post consistently good content #SocialCafe
  14. The way out is to do more research based on that topic you fancy. #socialcafe
  15. My worst struggle is to keep my OWN blog updated :( #socialcafe
  16. You'll soon see that the topic you originally chose has become something even more interesting #socialcafe
  17. A1 Sometimes it is content ideas. Once I have an idea, the article flows. #SocialCafe
  18. Each point of the existing topic becomes a foundation for a whole new discussion. #socialcafe
  19. A1 I usually have lots of ideas but lack time to either put together a blog post or even save those ideas properly #socialcafe
  20. @seosmarty How do you keep track of them? Do you track all of the ideas in @myblogu #SocialCafe
  21. A1 Most difficult challenge = only 24 hours a day! #socialcafe
  22. Q2 What strategies or tools to you use to help you create creative and memorable content on the web? #SocialCafe
  23. Before you know it, each point has evolved and become far more purposeful for readers #socialcafe
  24. You'll need time to concentrate on this, but it's worth the effort. #socialcafe
  25. And the result? A post that is almost purely your own. #socialcafe
  26. @socialwebcafe A2 I follow a lot of writers & writing sites on Twitter, which helps immensely & draw a lot from real life #SocialCafe
  27. Another challenge includes dealing with terminology. #socialcafe
  28. This is especially when you have a lot of unavoidable technical jargon. #socialcafe
  29. The way around this is to simply what has already been said on another blog or research article. #socialcafe
  30. Q3 How much of your strategy involves the use of interviews? #SocialCafe
  31. If your subject is extremely technical, it's a good idea to create a glossary to go along with your post. #socialcafe
  32. A2 @myblogu has made creating epic content much easier. Some of my MyBlogU-helped articles are 7000 words! #socialcafe
  33. Those are handy! Do u include links and ideas in ur calendar or drafts, so they are ready for writing? #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/conpsweeney/status/595756928715911169 
  34. Q2: What strategies or tools do you use to help you create creative and memorable content on the web? #socialcafe
  35. A1 Lately scheduling time to create content has been my main issue. #socialcafe
  36. A3 I like using interviews for getting opinions on currently trendy topics. LOTS of discussion with that strategy! #socialcafe
  37. Build on ideas. It can be that simple or quite tough. #socialcafe
  38. @socialwebcafe #socialcafe A3) Presently not much but it's a powerful tool I'll use in the future
  39. @seosmarty Does that tend to inspire even more articles than the original @myblogu project? #SocialCafe
  40. A2. Sometimes, this depends on the nature of the topic you write on #socialcafe
  41. However, if you have enough information (unambiguous) you can make it work. #socialcafe
  42. The more information you have in your reach, the easier it becomes. #socialcafe
  43. A3 I do 50% (at least) in interview videos and then use them in articles, too. #SocialCafe
  44. First time here! Had to check it since @seosmarty is awesome! Hi everyone. #socialcafe
  45. But again, you have to be prepared to do the spade work: dig in to available info, analyze, discuss. #socialcafe
  46. Part of this is a repeat of what we covered in Answer 1. #socialcafe
  47. Thanks! RT @MarisaASan: First time here! Had to check it since @seosmarty is awesome! Hi everyone. #socialcafe
  48. Q3: How much of your strategy involves the use of interviews? #socialcafe
  49. A3: If you can't get the right information you need anywhere, schedule an interview. #socialcafe
  50. Interviews give you more; they allow you to clear your concepts immediately. #socialcafe
  51. Often, re-phrasing what a mentor/expert says helps clarify things. #socialcafe
  52. Interviews give you mentor/expert quotes that you can use in your post #socialcafe
  53. Generally, 20%-30% of your posts can have interview material. #socialcafe
  54. Just a little reminder: We finish the Twitter Chat portion in 20 min & then get to listen to Ann live at  http://socialwebcafe.tv/live  #SocialCafe
  55. Q4: What tools or methods do you currently use to create those interviews? #socialcafe
  56. You can choose to ask recognized experts on your twitter or other social media lists for help. #socialcafe
  57. @socialwebcafe not sure! I find it easier to work alone than collaborate -- it's just how I do 😎 #SocialCafe
  58. Tell your prospect what the purpose of the interview is and how you will use the information. #socialcafe
  59. @conpsweeney Sure love Twitter chats because I discover great people to follow there! #socialcafe
  60. Let him/her know you would like to quote from the interview. #socialcafe
  61. Q5: What are some ways you could use a tool like MyBlogU? #socialcafe
  62. A4 I use @myblogu for textual interviews :) I have my own system for setting up video interviews #SocialCafe
  63. MyBlogU has an 'Interview' section that allows you ask for interviews and input. #socialcafe
  64. All members can see these requests, which gives each one an opportunity to share views. #socialcafe
  65. Those who request interviews and input get to approve the input. #socialcafe
  66. Also, those experts/mentors who share their views score points as their views are accepted. #socialcafe
  67. This allows experts on MyBlogU to build their reputation, which attracts a larger following. #socialcafe
  68. For any of you who have @myblogu interview-based articles, please do share! (they will be in #SocialCafe archive, too)
  69. Q5 What are some ways you could use a tool like MyBlogU? #SocialCafe
  70. A3. Small #charities benefit from interviews in documenting #outcomes. Stories come to life & educate #philanthropists as well. #socialcafe
  71. @socialwebcafe A5 I'd have to do more research into it first! Not entirely sure what it does #SocialCafe
  72. A5 I could use @myblogu even more in brainstorming video interview concepts and gigs #SocialCafe
  73. A3 I do little question things here and there. Even on Twitter I get ideas based on answers people give me. #SocialCafe
  74. @socialwebcafe A6 all the basics: what does it do and how can it help me blog? #SocialCafe
  75. A6 It will “come to me” in just a few minutes :) #SocialCafe
  76. @LizFurl 2night, I think u will get a good idea of "what" @myblogu is, and then the udemy course helps fill the gaps on "how" #SocialCafe
  77. Q7 What will you be adding to your strategy this week, after #SocialCafe (Hint: try MyBlogU :) )? #SocialCafe
