Ghost writers, editors, and researchers

Ghost writers, editors, and researchers.

Let's get this straight off the bat first. Most of us have a ghostwriter, editor, or even a research writer that stands firmly behind us in your efforts to create something unique to place on our blog.

Even if you are a great writer, getting a new fresh perspective and implementing it into your content can significantly improve your work that you are putting out in the world.

As a matter of fact, this article you are reading right now was handed over to my ghost research writer/editor to be expanded on before I share it with you. It does not mean I have a lack of confidence in my knowledge and experience. It simply allows me to get a very clear picture of the ideas I'm trying to share. If my ghostwriter and I both understand the ideas that I'm trying to reach you with, then I am confident that we have done a good job and that my thoughts will be shared with my audience in the right way.

How many times have you been in a situation where people simply don't understand what you're trying to say?

It sounds completely clear to you, but once you put your thoughts into words, people start having problems with understanding it.

When it comes to ghostwriters, editors, and researches, they are basically a second and backup voice. Your thoughts and words get filtered through another perspective, so the end-product could be fresh, understandable, and relatable.

What if my writing is not good enough for starting a blog?

If you have let your lack of confidence in your writing skills has kept you from starting your blog, please take the time to reconsider to rethink a solution. If your gift is cooking, storytelling, video making, or anything else you're passionate about and you want to share your ideas with others, you don't have to beat yourself up for being a bad writer.

It's pretty sad to imagine how many stories, experiences, and lessons would never be shared with the world if writers decided to quit before even starting, just because they felt like they were not able to deliver the full package.

Starting a blog has many different elements, that way the many articles and content that are visible are the final product. This is simply more proof that we all need each other. To quote an old saying: "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."

Create your own article and ideas. Put your words down on paper and hand it to a writer who will be able to give your words the exact sound you were looking for.

How to make the best of your writing?

The good thing about writing is that you can get better at it. Just like with any other skill, even if it does not come naturally to you, you can always work to achieve more. Since you want your blog to be a mirror of your ideas, personality, and knowledge, I would recommend you to at least try writing your thoughts down.

And how to do it?

Write all your ideas down on paper, computer, notepad, or whatever you feel the most comfortable with. When you are at a stopping point or completely finished, move on to something else and come back later to reread your written content. This will give you a clearer picture of the parts that need to be adjusted, corrected, or deleted that you may not be able to see while writing in the moment.

Trust me, in completing these simple steps your writing will be much clearer and overall better. Along with making your ghost writer's job a lot easier. When you first start writing it will most likely be a little mixed up and out of order (or as my uncle would say "Forgetaboutit" ). Which is why rereading is so important.

I would like to use the opportunity to share a story with you.

I have a few friends whose native language is English and they all speak and express themselves through their words flawlessly. During some of our conversations, I would sometimes make a mistake, and my dear friends would correct me in the moment. I would then back up and restate what I meant to say, with the now corrected words.

To be completely honest with you, I love it! I don't look at it as constructive criticism, but a great help offered by my friends. When you know what your flaws or disadvantages are, you are able to work harder to improve yourself in any area of your life (including speaking or writing.)

Find a ghostwriter that understands your vision.

As mentioned earlier, you do not have to feel ashamed or bad about needing some help with your blog. There are plenty of people who are looking forward to working on your projects and sharing their writing skills with your audience.

You can find a ghostwriter for any type of online business.

Whether it is a blog, YouTube channel, ebook, social media sites, or any other form of online content creation. There are plenty of websites that work as platforms that connect writers with people who need help with their creation or their written content. Some companies have a set amount for written words and some have a per word count. Besides the price, there are many other factors that go into finding the perfect ghostwriter, if needed.

The most important thing is to find the right person for the job.

This may require you to put in some effort to find the right person. It can get difficult as some points, such as when the person (the ghostwriter) on the other side is not understanding you completely. Which can lead to your writing being unsuccessful in conveying what you want. Don't get surprised when you find yourself in unpleasant situations, as they may occur from time to time.

Here's an example of a non-match that I experienced.

In the past, I had sent an article to a writer about health, wellness, and positive energy. She then wrote me back, talked poorly and unprofessional, and then continued to block me on the site. I could have been offended by the whole situation, however, instead I decided to keep a positive attitude about it, knowing this writer was not the writer meant to help me with my business.

Once you find the person (or multiple people) who become your business partners and an important part of your written content, the whole process comes together. Even now, as I am writing this; I remember my wonderful ghostwriter who is backing me up and will be reading this and designing it to flow.

Make sure not to be judgmental about your writer's age. You will be surprised at how many people are passionate about the same things as you and willing to put all of their knowledge and skills into your articles. A person's age should not matter in this decision. Older people may actually be able to give your content a fresh perspective see your ideas from multiple angles.

Step out of your comfort zone and don't judge a book by its cover. You will be surprised at how many doors will open for you once you decide not to attach any social labels to your business partners or writers.

Time to create amazing stories with your ghostwriters!

Don't let the lack of experience in writing keep you from starting your blog! If you are reading this article, it only means you already know what your gift is and what you are passionate about. I hope this will be the final push you were looking for so you can finally dare yourself to live your life to the fullest!

Now it's time to start searching for a ghostwriter that you are going to create amazing stories with. Remember that the best part of this type of business partnership is that you are not the only working on projects together, but you have the opportunity to connect with people all across the world, creating a new and rewarding relationship.

There is no doubt - your audience will feel a new strong connection through every written word of your content.
