Writing The "Right" Content

Here's how to do it.

Writing The "Right" Content
HR Post

For days where you're asking yourself, "Am I writing the “right” content?", here's some things to consider.

Whether you’re writing for a blog, for an online newspaper, for a class, for fun, or with intentions to publish someday, you’ll probably wonder somewhere along the way if you’re on the right track.

Writers everywhere doubt their writing. We criticize ourselves and ask ourselves if what we’re writing is quality content. We’ll sit and work, and then re-work what we’re writing until we like what we have in front of us, and still feel unsure. This uncertainty goes along with simultaneously having a sense of pride in our work. An explanation of this is tough, really, because it seems much too contradictory to say that we are proud but unsure of ourselves. But then again, isn’t everyone?

Anyone on a sports team could be nervous before a game and still be proud to be there and playing, no matter what level they are at. Whether they play in grade school, middle school, high school, collegiate, or professional sports, they have some amount of uncertainty. That never really goes away, not completely. I don’t think it ever does. That uncertainty keeps the drive and passion alive.

The desire to keep on keeping on, to continue to write and tell stories that will entertain, inform, inspire, and much more.

The right content doesn’t exist. If you’re writing, you’re on the right track. Show it to other people when you feel ready. If you don’t feel like the piece is ready to be shown, keep writing.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.
