Have you ever noticed that when you’re on the right path, how everything flows so much more smoothly, and you have so much more energy? I’m finding that right now, since I got really clear on the direction I want to go with the Creative Repurposing site and the products and services I want to create for it.
The past few days I’ve been waking up between 3 and 5 a.m. feeling rested and ready to dive into my day. And that’s a huge change from the couple of weeks before and after I shut down the PLR shop on Ritchie Media when I could barely keep my eyes open and had no energy to work at all.
I’m finding that I really love working in the early morning too. It’s quiet, and it’s peaceful. And more importantly, it’s one of my most creative times of the day. The other one is from about 10 p.m. to midnight, so I’m really not getting a lot of sleep right now and I’m okay with that. The nice part of working for myself means I can ride the energy waves as they come, and nap during the day as I need to.
And I can get so focused that I just put my head down and start cranking out the content and the work on my to do list every day! I need to ruminate on this a little more, but I can’t tell you how important that clarity is… When everything starts falling into place, you’ll see it and you’ll feel it, and I’m here to tell you that when you finally listen to what the Universe is telling you… life gets pretty darn good.
And on that note, let’s get back to business!
Here’s what I have for you this morning…
And with that, here’s what I have for you today…
Today’s Read: 9 Tips for Rewriting DFY Content as Blog Posts
One of the most popular uses of DFY content is as blog posts. Most packages of written content that you can purchase always include anywhere from 5 to 10 articles that you can post on your blog. This makes adding content relatively easy if you don’t want to create it all from scratch yourself.
There are some people who will tell you that blogging is dead, and that you don’t need a blog to have a successful business but I beg to strongly disagree with that. A blog is like the store front for your business, where customers and prospective customers can come to learn more about you, and what you do. They’re looking for experts in the topics they need help with, and it’s your job to provide that for them.
The drawback of having a blog is that you need to be adding content on a regular basis in order for it to gain traction, drive traffic, and keep your existing audience coming back as well.
This is why using DFY content as a head start on your blog posts is a huge time saver. The grunt work and the research has already been done. Although, as I mentioned in a previous post on why you might want to rewrite your DFY content, you always want to be fact checking before you put your name on the finished product.
But, in order to get the best results from blog posts created from DFY content, you are going to want to rewrite parts of it, and add your own voice and experience as well.

3 Picks for Today
Pick #1 – Maureen’s Birthday Sale – One of the first people I met when I started in the low-content/coloring book space was Maureen at Color Me Positive PLR. For today and tomorrow she’s celebrating her birthday by giving you 62% off everything in her shop when you use coupon code SOHAPPY. If you need to stock up on coloring book kits this is a great deal because she rarely puts her content on sale like this!
Pick #2 – Zero Budget Marketing Workbook from Lynette is on sale this week through Monday July 3. I’m excited to get my hands on this workbook because it gives you 8 different marketing activities for your business that don’t cost anything out of pocket. And especially with me in the middle of changing direction and not having any products to sell right now, free marketing ideas are a really good thing!
Pick #3 – Mark Hess’s Six Figure Confession was a no brainer buy for me, especially after reading the sales page. I’ve never seen anything like it, and he gets really real about what he’s gone through in the past few years. I’m looking forward to digging in and seeing what gems I can pick up from someone who has been in this space longer than I have.
