    Like if you do SEO, can you also effectively do content writing?

    To me it seems like when I swap to content writing, my experience from SEO decays, and I feel pretty clumsy if I'd get back to it.

    on my spreadsheet of sites, i have how many days since I done seo, and how many days since I uploaded an article, I try to keep both under a week,
    but it's a handy method to make sure you arn't leaving behind whats important for too long.

    If you put the work and focus in, absolutely. I consider myself extremely proficient in content writing, rep management (which has at least 10 subsets of the SEO process), and data analysis. I'm also working on proficiency in full stack web development via Codecademy Pro.

    Focus, direct your energy, drop an hour or two of sleep and push that towards increasing your skills. Once you get highly proficient at something, hire someone to do it for you and teach them how to get to the same level. That's how you "scale".
