    I'm talking about any content that you use for your money site(s) and for submitting to article directories and social networks - When you hit a dead end, or get close to hitting that dead end, what do you do (if anything) to motivate yourself into going further?

    The last two days i've been churning out article after article, going through my list of keywords doing as many articles as possible for each keyword and i've ran out of steam!
    To target some of these difficult keywords i'm aiming to churn out 25+ articles for each, and i have a small (though it looks endless) list of almost 40 keywords to write these articles for - I'm running out of ideas for each keyword after only a few articles (coming up with 25+ articles for one keyword is tough!), so need some motivation to keep at it.

    What do you do?

    Gather links to as many sites as I find with good content and give those links to Fiverr outsourcers to scrape and spin to 80+% uniqueness. Best mind-saving expense going.

    That video is pretty damn awesome, the other video he has on his site is pretty inspiring too - Need to watch this every morning to get myself into the mood :D

    Honestly i would if i had the cash, but i'm aiming for 25+ articles for each of almost 40 keyword = Almost 1000 articles at a minimum of $2.50 each, so that's why i'm trying to see how many i can do myself.

    Write articles, get tits... Damn i wish that's how life worked lol :p

    Play with it, I don't mean it but play with the words. Take a different approach that is write your article for example as if you hated the product. That get's the readers attention and you can psyche them later in the article.

    1. Hire a GOOD full time writer or outsource to a writer
    2. Build content generators
    If you can't (afford) to do either, just mix the kind of work you do. Write 4-5 articles, then do some link building, then write 4-5 more, then do some research, etc.


    Also give yourself "prizes" for finishing a batch of let's say 4-5 articles. Say to yourself things like:

    • After I finish these 5 articles I will have a snack
    • After I finish these 5 articles I will have a smoke
    • After I finish these 5 articles I will be even more awesome
    • After I finish these 5 articles I will get a BJ from my girlfriend
    Do not ever cheat!


    Also, it helps to drink/eat energizers - fruit fresh juice, banana milkshake, salad+meat.
    Also, it helps to exercise a bit between sessions - it gets your blood flowing - do 20 pushups or 20 situps or whatever after each 5 article session.
    Also, it helps to go out. Even for just 15min to look at the sky and breath some fresh air.

    Thanks,
    I'm seriously considering hiring a full time article writer, as it would be cheaper than using the service i currently use, though would still take 3-4 months of full time work to be able to finish off the articles for -just- this niche, lol.

    I've been using Dragon Naturally Speaking to dictate articles, which seems to have tripled my productivity, or to be more accurately it seems to have trippled the speed i can finish an article - though i'm still hitting a brick wall after just a few.

    I like your idea of rewards, going to try that tomorrow i think, but i'll start small and then work up.

    I've found that excersize is definately a focus booster, though that damn brick wall is still there - after a few articles my mind pretty much just goes blank.

    Well, if you need motivation for writing, do what you did in school when you had to write a paper. Go to the library and browse around.
