5 Ridiculously Easy Ways To Open A Blog PostOne of the reasons that so many people struggle with writing content is that it can often require a lot of time and energy – maybe more than they have available. (This is doubly true for those of us with chronic illness or neurological issues – energy is a very finite resource.)

But most people don’t realize that they could cut their writing time by an easy 30%-50% overnight by using writing templates to get past their “stuck points”.
