Mind Map for Content Creation: Resources for Writers

Writing Resources Mind Map. The words "resources for writers" is in the middle, and several related words are connected to it by lines.

Over the course of the last year and a bit, I’ve shared several mind maps for niche diversification, which means taking a niche and thinking about related niches, so you can find more leads and earn more as a freelance writer.

I’ve also shared a handful of content creation mind maps, where I start a topic and then come up with as many ideas as possible for blog posts. This week I take another one of my own verticals from this site and share a mind map telling you what I might write about when it comes to that topic.

This week’s mind map is for the vertical Resources for Writers. This is super useful to me and to anyone who wants to write about this topic. As I create this mind map, I can think about individual posts where I’ll review resources that I use as a writer, and which will hopefully be helpful for readers of this site. Here’s that mind map!

Here’s how I start thinking about organizing content and writing blog posts. Currently on the Resources for Writers page, you’ll find a link to purchase my book, Mind Maps for Freelance Writing Success, a “coming soon” message for my course, “The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Getting Paid for Your Writing,” an explanation of how you can purchase a personalized mind map, and finally, an affiliate link to The Freelance Writers Den.

I’d like to add more resources for writers, especially free ones. Not just things I’m connected with, but resources in general. By using the mind map above, I can start thinking about posts about this topic. 

I might create a series of “5 writer websites to check out this week” (or maybe this month). In this series, I’d share great websites for writers that I find as I’m browsing online.

I might write a post about my experience with The Freelance Writers Den or the writing groups on the PuttyTribe. I might also try other communities and relate my experience, depending on my budget.

I could write a post about great Facebook groups for writers or share Pinterest boards for writers. I could also explain how I use Tailwind to share my writing and explain how Tailwind Tribes work. 

I could write a roundup blog post about courses for writers, and could give a launch date for my own course. I could also write a series of blog posts with tips for writers, and end the series with a call to action for joining my course.

I could write a post about great books for writers, providing a list of books that will help with grammar or with the business of writing. I could also write individual posts doing a review of each book I read on the subject. I could even do a series of “books I’ve read” and share one book per month—this would also encourage me to read more.

I could write a post about great places to find writing prompts, and I could end the post with a call to action to get a personalized mind map for blog post ideas.

I could write a post about software for writers and review any that I’ve tried. I could also offer advice on places to get free Scrivener courses, since it’s a very popular software, but there’s a very large learning curve to it.

These are just some ideas on how I can fill up my “resources for writers” vertical to help my readers. Hopefully by looking at this mind map and how I might use it, you too can get some ideas of how to populate a blog in any subject.
