Writing Prompts–Find Your Inspiration Here!
Why re-invent the wheel? Here’s where you will find (literally) thousands of ideas for articles you could write *better*. It’s a delightful mixture of media fluff and well documented nutrition news topics that should be rewritten from a dietitian’s perspective.
First, Why Write?
Attract Nutrition Clients or Increase Sales
What better way to attract clients than to write a great niche article to be published on the NutriScape.NET consumer site. NutriScape can’t offer financial compensation, but writing on your topic of expertise and passion will have the effect of positioning you as an expert and allowing you to market your paid products and services.
For example, your author biography might link to your own independent website, your telehealth scheduling page on NutriScape’s telenutrition site, or help you generate passive income from your online course, downloadable e-book, or handouts and forms.
NutriScape Allows You To Reach Your Niche
Is your voice being drowned out in the ocean of other small blogs on the topic? When it comes to getting your articles found on google, the size of the websites matters along with SEO (the term for details like tagging, linking, categorizing, using keywords, outline structure for headings, and the like). Bottom line–on NutriScape, your article Will.Get.Read.
A Supportive Writing Community
Ever spend forever writing an article only to read it later and realize a couple of lines in it could be misconstrued? Or worse, that there is an error you hadn’t realized was there? Now, you don’t have to write it alone! NutriScape.NET offers a peer-review process whereby dietitians are able to offer supportive feedback to help you optimize your article’s message.
A Wide Readership
As NutriScape grows, it is sure to become an important and widely shared resource for our profession of nearly 90,000 registered dietitians as well as their patients and clients. These are not casual readers, but the exact people your knowledge can make the difference for–isn’t that why we all became dietitians?
Academic and Career Development
Students, dietetic interns, and job seekers have unlimited publishing opportunities. Add a line to your resume or talk to your professor about receiving academic credit for your published work.
Follow Your Passion While You Save Time and Promote Your Work
Spending all your time on email and social media repeating the same messages again and again? When your article is published on NutriScape, you can link to it again and again. Link to it from Facebook or email the link to your clients. You’ll be able to write what you’re passionate about–maybe it will turn into something more–a book, a course, a job offer?
Opportunity to Submit Original Core Articles
Specific topics for nutrition articles are needed for each category of nutrition information. These articles will form the central content of the NutriScape site and many other articles on the site will be linked back to these core articles.
They are expected to achieve quite a readership over the course of time, so they have the potential to reward the writers with an unusually significant increase in visitors to their social or website links.
Since these articles will be so critical to the quality and tone of the overall NutriScape project, they will receive ongoing feedback from dietitians on the peer-review site. This supportive feedback will be provided to you on an ongoing basis to allow you to upgrade and polish the content even after publication. Changes will be easy to submit via e-mail.
Republish Your Previous Works
NutriScape needs content, therefore, in 2020-2021, we will accept articles for publication based on a simplified NutriScape Staff review, and, at the same time, publish your article on the peer-review site where colleagues can privately share their thoughts. If you have articles ready to go that match our Voice & Tone guidelines, they can be submitted easily via e-mail for publication on the site.
Planning Your Article
- Print out a copy of our general guidelines for Voice & Tone to follow along as you write your thoughts. We’ll review your submission according to these guidelines.
- When planning your article, keep in mind the ideal article length for ranking in Google is between 350 and 600 words. Some articles may need to be much longer, while other topics can be split to form two or more shorter articles.
- When writing for the web, it is important to make your article easy to scan through. This can be accomplished by outlining the heading structure for your article in advance.
- A great tool for brainstorming, organizing, and outlining is MindMeister. The free account allows you to keep and share up to 3 mind maps at no cost and it is very easy to learn and use.
