But, I Can’t Find a Unique Topic to Write About!
The problem with this statement is all about your definition of the word unique. Some people think that in order for an article to be 100 percent unique it must be a topic and an idea that someone has never ever thought about before. That is not what the word unique means.
When you write an article, you should write it on a topic that you are passionate about. Something that you enjoy writing and reading about. Something you know a lot about and something you just all-around enjoy. This does not mean you have to sit and ponder for hours until you come up with something you cannot find on the search engine.
But, how does that make it unique?
Your words are unique. Unless you are word-for-word copying what someone else has written or you are just rewriting something you found on the Internet, your words are unique. There could be 100’s of articles on breastfeeding or on writing articles, but those people do not have the same train of thought as you do. You are unique and so are your words.
Just write what you are feeling and what you are thinking. It is when a person puts a large amount of effort into writing an article on a topic that they know nothing about that they start to not only write something that is not unique, but something that is not interesting either.
Stick to Writing What You Know
When you are writing for private clients, chances are pretty good they are either pay you a rate per word or they are paying you a rate per page. Either way, you may or may not be able to write on topics you know in that situation. But, you are earning a fixed rate for that article and that is fine.
When you are writing for shared revenue websites (such as this Day2DayTips) you should be writing from your heart. You are not writing for a fixed rate. The amount of money you could end up earning is endless. And if you are writing on a topic you are not passionate about or a topic you know nothing about – you are not going to make it very far.
The problem with not sticking to your passions is that your work begins to sound robotic. People can read the passion underneath what you write and, more importantly, people can read when there is no passion there. People are more likely to share and article with their friends, family members, and social networks if they can feel the passion behind the person who wrote the article to begin with.
