Need advice regarding content writing.

How much time do you take to write a unique content with original ideas. I know there is no limit on the amount of time we do for research. But I just wanted to compare notes to understand how slow or fast I need to be or what I am doing wrong. I will appreciate all of your replies. Also what is the source of your research. Recently I read that abebooks dot com is a good source from copyblogger.

It usually takes me a whole evening to write an article including finding some resources to backup the information shared.

Usually a good article should take at least a couple of hours to be written, if you truly look for high-quality stuff, pay attention to the grammatical structure, make references to some outside websites, use proper writing skills, etc. Even expert copywriters are only able to write only a few articles per day, since it is virtually impossible to make new content pages any faster. Conduct research, write down the highlights, reread your final copies before actually attempting to publish them online.

Sometimes I can whip up a blog post in a half hour or a few hour's. The more time I spend on a blog post, the better it is in regards to detail's.

Sometimes, I need to do research to complete the blog post so it could take a few hours to put everything together into a blog post.

I write 500 words articles in just 2 or three hours. Do not care about time, just focus on quality.

I guess it depends on the sector or niche you are in. Being familiar with domain knowledge is very important. Research is primairly done with to what is trending and linking it to the the keywords which are used most often by visitors.

I usually take 4 to 5 hours and may be one complete day to collect the ideas and arrange them in smart ways including optimizations, tags, description and etc

This actually based on your interest, if you have site in which you have actual interest, this will only take 30 to 40 mints to write a quality article on 500 to 600 words.......

It all depends on the topic, level of skill and writing speed. If you're not familiar with a certain topic, then you may struggle with it. If you've been writing for a while, then your speed should be professional, as in 500 words = 30 min or less to finish. But hey, practice makes perfect. Just remember, quality over quantity.

To write faster you need to have good command over vocabulary and grammar constructs. Having a good knowledge about the domain will also help you to write faster. If you use tools such as WordAi, you can rewrite articles faster and edit them manually later.

My writing skill is not good. So that, I sometimes hire professionals to write articles for me.
You can find a lot of freelancers in order to help you with a cheap price.

It takes me 2 to 3 hours I am not a fast person anyway. However, I find that the more time I spend on my articles the better they are. Plus, you have to consider proofreading making sure you didn't make any typos. I had published articles and then I had to go make some corrections. So, yeah it takes time.

I think content writing is an artwork and extra quality also. Constantly try to make it more perfect. Actually, there is no time limit for writing a unique content. When you are writing a content, you have to keep the basic method of writing in your mind . If your content is presentable and lucid language for the readers, they will easily love to read your all contents which you want to share.
