Reasons Why You Must Write About Things You Know Nothing About

Freelancers tend to fall into the monotonous ritual of writing about the same stuff they know about. Mostly many freelancers are experts in not more than 3 fields. As such they take up topics from clients or write personally about these 3 topics at most. What happens in the long run is that they tend to get repetitive and as such the quality starts to suffer. Here are why you must write about things you know nothing about!

Broaden Your Niche

You may be very happy writing what you know. At the same time, you will find much more happiness when you widen your horizon and learn new things. Have you forgotten the childhood excitement at discovering new things!

Broaden Your Research Material

As you start reading up about other things apart from your niche, you start gaining new research materials. Most often than not, you will be able to use the new materials to freshen up your perspectives about your own niches. As such, you are adding on to your previous research materials which you can fall back on to provide a new and fresh perspective to your own niche articles. You will be able to rewrite your previous articles as well with a new twist.

Gain New Clients and Improve Relation with Old Ones

As a freelancer you will always be on the lookout for new clients who need you services. When you can write about more things, you will be able to find new clients who demand new things. As such, you will be gaining relationship with new clients with diverse interests. This can also be used to update you bio-data and will serve as an impressive part to your current base of clients as well when they consider re-hiring you. You will come across as a person who is constantly and consistently learning new things and nothing can be a good tool as this to improve your clients perception of you.

In conclusion, it is better to start learning and writing about things you have little or no knowledge of. Do a research on what other people are writing about as well as reading about. This will give you an idea where to start. Writing about things you know nothing about will open up a lot of opportunities which you will never discover if you keep writing for the same niche.

Best of Luck :)
