By The Numbers
I thought I was pumping out high volumes of content until I calculated the totals for the past couple of months. In January 2020 I had 35 different jobs compared to 36 in February 2020. I wrote a total of 87 different articles in January but only 66 in February with a total word count of 64,695. When I look at the totals recorded from before I got sick last November, I see an interesting change. In October 2019 I had 58 jobs which included 90 different articles for a word count of 69,500. In September 2019 it was 35 jobs, 90 articles, and 58.405 words. Going back to August 2019 there were 48 jobs, 77 articles, and 63,600 words.
The dip in September was because I was away for a week-long convention otherwise, the totals run at about 50 jobs in a month and 75 articles. Why are my 2020 job totals so low in comparison? Well, I think I can answer that easily. Since October I’ve been writing a lot more 1,000-word and 1,500-word articles. Before that, I was writing a lot more 500-word articles. Fewer jobs, fewer articles but higher word counts. There are three content marketing agencies I write for that order 1,000-word or more articles and that is the logical reason I can come up with. I am back to writing between 3,000 and 5,500 words per day now.
What Do I Write About?
I was asked this question earlier today. I write about almost anything you can imagine. As a ghostwriter, my name does not appear as the author and whatever it is the client wants the article about is what I compose. Some clients provide a brief outline, others do not. Most of the time I get a title, some keywords, a link or two for reference (I will find others on my own) and a deadline. The rest is up to me and usually, that means few revisions as a lot of the work I do is for bloggers or business websites with a blog section in need of new content.
In February 2020 the topics I wrote about included CBD, data loggers, environmental monitoring, SEO, playground equipment, granite countertop installation, workplace drug testing kits, responsible drinking programs, dentures, customized t-shirts, CPAP machines and accessories and geo-targeted landing pages (almost 40 of those alone this month). As you can see, there are many different things I write about for my clients. As for where the work came from in February, most of it was from regular clients of mine in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Israel.
What Are My Favorite Topics To Write About?
I enjoy writing about SEO. I also have a fair deal of knowledge about CBD, casino basics and different forms of marketing. I have also found that writing geo-targeted landing pages for websites is an interesting form of reaching specific geographic regions. It’s a form of SEO (search engine optimization) and possibly that is why I find it so fascinating. I also write some product reviews for “review websites” and I find those interesting in that I am writing about products I have never used, touched and in some cases knew existed before I started writing about them.

It started with Radio, switched to Newspaper Print Media and I'm now ghostwriting exclusively for Digital Media. I really like what I do and that I can do it from home.
