Thesaurus.com and How It Can Benefit You

I never really paid much attention to online dictionaries and thesauruses before.

At least not until my computer crashed and I lost my MS Word software with my beloved spell checker! 

Generally, I am a very good speller, but having some sort of spell or grammar checker is a must for all content creators. Even the best editors can sometimes overlook a misspelled or misplaced word.

I came across Thesaurus.com ages ago, but never looked into all it offered until just recently.

Now that he and I’ve got your attention with the (in)famous nametag, I’ll share some thoughts I learned from him on how to turn your thoughts into valuable content along with other valuable tips on promotion.

“I Hate Creating Membership Site Content” – You Don’t Have To!

I hear this from members a lot…

“I Hate Coming up with new ideas for content”

Some people can create content (write articles, produce videos, etc.) for their Membership sites in a matter of moments when they put their mind to it.  No inspiration needed, no coming up with ideas before hand, none of that stuff. 

They simply get in front of their computer and produce!  Paragraphs of interesting text and hours of informative video seem to just flow out of these people effortlessly.  Must be nice 🙂

Case in point, the previous paragraph took me 42 minutes and two cans of redbull to write (well, maybe not that long) but you get the idea.

So, what can the rest of us do when it comes time to create some content for our site and nothing immediately comes to mind?

Let’s find out.
