Creating a WordPress blog is easy. Register a domain, link the domain to the hosting and install WordPress – you’re done! But what about content, do I have to write all the posts on the blog? Or could I use a content generator and what really is a content generator?
Very few people are natural writers, which means, for most, writing does not come naturally so we have to work at it. Imagine writing detailed, informative and useful articles every day of the week or several days of the week. This would be a major chore for most people, so what do we do about it?
There are a number of choices to fill our blogs with content.
1. Write it ourselves: do the research, write it up, edit and then publish;
2. Hire a freelance-writer to write articles to be published on our blogs;
3. Use some kind of content generator;
In options 1 and 2 are covered on many, many blogs so won’t be covered here. But here’s some useful links for writing yourself and freelancing.
Articles of varying lengths can be used to add content to websites, post to blogs, or use in article marketing. Whatever the purpose for your articles, writing them can be time consuming and frustrating. It is easy to run out of fresh ideas when writing about one topic consistently. Break the monotony and use your time more wisely by hiring an expert freelance writer to write your articles. Simply specify the word count and topic, and watch the bids roll in.Source: http://www.freelancer.com/jobs/Articles/
All forms of media seek to connect with their intended audiences. However, many companies underestimate the value of quality writing in this process. That’s where I come in. I have a Ph.D. in English from Duquesne University and a background in behavioral sciences (psychology, sociology, anthropology), as well as 15 years of university teaching and freelance writing experience in a number of fields. I enjoy the challenge of crafting projects to custom-fit a specific readership, combining the right information, tone, and “call to action” to accomplish the goals of my clients.
You have selected the right person for content and article writing! Over the last 3 years, I have been writing contents on a wide range subjects. As a writer I can assure you good quality original articles. And I’m dedicated to give you more than what you expect. My aim is to satisfy my client by providing excellent quality of work. Thanks For Your Precious Time!
My objectives are as follows:
* do copywriting and editing for manuscripts and documents
* proofreading, editing for articles
* customer service
* article spinning and submission
* word and data processing
* update and maintain blogs
* do research ona variety of subjects
My reasons for wanting to work at this time is to continue in my field of
business management and to earn extra income for my family. I also want to
continue to use my skills by working for others.
To be honest I love to write and to be creative too, its in my blood and my nature and I am flexible and adaptable too. I am an abstract painter, drawer and photographer.
Moreover, I have a lot of recent experience of content writing, article and creative writing, copy writing, press releases, essay and research and re-writing. I can write on a wide range of topics and niches. I am familiar with SEO and sales copy writing.
I have recent experience of writing and rewriting eBooks.
Now, let’s move onto content generation and content generators.
The easiest and fastest way to fill your blog with content is to use form script, tool or WordPress plugin. There are dozens of WordPress plugins that can do this. For example, one of the most popular several years ago was called Caffeinated Content. It generated content from numerous sources, could mask it together and add images/videos, etc. Have a look at the videos below.
Another one is FeedWordPress, more info about it below.
FeedWordPress is an Atom/RSS aggregator for WordPress. It syndicates content from feeds that you choose into your WordPress weblog; the content it syndicates appears as a series of special posts in your WordPress posts database. If you syndicate several feeds then you can use WordPress’s posts database and templating engine as the back-end of an aggregation (“planet”) website. It was developed, originally, because I needed a more flexible replacement for Planet to use at Feminist Blogs.
FeedWordPress is designed with flexibility, ease of use, and ease of configuration in mind. You’ll need a working installation of WordPress or WordPress MU (version 3.0 or later), and also FTP or SFTP access to your web host. The ability to create cron jobs on your web host is helpful but not required. You don’t need to tweak any plain-text configuration files and you don’t need shell access to your web host to make it work. (Although, I should point out, web hosts that don’t offer shell access are bad web hosts.)

This WP plugin is an Amazon auto poster: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/azonpost/
