Every blogger out there has their go-to writing software.
It can be Microsoft Word which is the de facto software used by most. Apart from Word, there are a lot of Apps out there specifically designed for the writer.
Ulysses is one and has received rave review. Recently it went from a one time paid app to a subscription basis. I think it is a great app and I want to do a separate review on it.
I want to talk about SiteContent.
SiteContent is a writing tool provided by Wealthy Affiliate when you sign up as a Premium Member.
Here is a screenshot of it, as I was composing this article.
I like it for its simplicity of ease. This tool does what it touts – to help you focus on your ultimate goal which is to create amazing content for your readers. Therefore, bells and whistles are removed. You do have a word count at the bottom to help you keep track. I love this feature the most because I like my articles to be of a certain length before I publish them.
The Save button allows you to save whatever you have written and come back later to finish or edit before publishing it to the web.
SiteContent provides a goal setting feature for writing which I think is invaluable to all writers out there. It allows me to set goals like word count for each article and also the number of articles to publish by a certain date. It helps me stay on track and I take away the bad work habit of writing whenever I am inspired which is a recipe for disaster as I probably won’t get too much done.
SiteContent is a wonderful tool for writing for your website. What is sorely missing is the ability to insert images. There is no such function at the moment but according to Carson (co-owner of Wealthy Affiliate), this is a feature they are bringing in. So it is a matter of time and we hope it will happen soon.
To Wrap Up…
SiteContent works great as part of a packaged deal by Wealthy Affiliate. I probably wouldn’t join Wealthy Affiliate for SiteContent alone. I join Wealthy Affiliate because it gives me the training needed to create and manage my own website and along with it, I am happy they have such a wonderful tool like SiteContent. I call it a Bonus Tool and I enjoy using it.
