We write content, we curate content, we market content. Somewhere in there is our spare time, and we spend it scouring the internet for long lost content marketing posts – or indeed fresh ones – which tickle our fancy.

This week, it’s been rather special. Collectively our team are subscribed to over 150 business, marketing, blogging and social media websites which produce stories every day, every other day or weekly. For some reason, our email inbox and indeed our smartphones have been blasted with content writing that seems to have been sent down by the God of Amazing during the past 7 days, so rather than keep these posts locked up in our minds to ponder, we thought we’d share them with you.

So, here we go! Oh, and remember, if you have found any amazing blog posts and articles lately which really sparked your interest, let us know through Twitter @content_hero.

Note: Our blog post title is supposed to be structured as it is. Ever seen Star Wars?

How to Immediately Become a More Productive (and Better) Writer from Copyblogger

If you do not read Copyblogger, you should. Yes the entity that is Copyblogger is a money making machine with their marketing courses and software, but their blog certainly makes use of the Freedom of Speech Act, making it an enthralling read for any content marketer out there.

This week, their blog post entitled “How to Immediately Become a More Productive (and Better) Writer” caught my attention.

The topic is very interesting for sure, but it was actually the scannable content that made me stick around as well as the use of italics to accentuate meaning.

Read that post for hot tips on being a better writer. Any post that recommends you buy shower markers deserves your attention.
