Article Writing Tips From Spongebob Squarepants

Wisdom can be found in​ the​ most unexpected places. Today,​ wisdom bubbled up from a​ pineapple under the​ sea. I suddenly realized that everything you’d want to​ know about writing articles for your website can be taught by SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends.

When you write for your newsletter,​ blog,​ or​ website,​ which character are you most like?

Squidward: Squidward is​ B-O-R-I-N-G. When writing articles,​ are you a​ Squidward? Do you just get the​ words down on​ paper or​ are you finding a​ fun twist to​ entertain your audience and keep them coming back for more? Take time to​ make your articles stand out from the​ thousands of​ other dull articles out there by including personal stories or​ just having fun while writing. For instance,​ this article could be entitled "How to​ Write a​ Good Article",​ but would it​ stand out from the​ hundreds of​ other articles about article writing? Probably not.

Mr. Krabs: This crustacean is​ focused on​ one thing and one thing only,​ making more and more and more money. Only a​ cartoon could actually have dollar signs drawn in​ his eyes. He thinks of​ no one,​ only how he can benefit. Are your articles focused on​ you or​ on​ the​ reader? Are you providing information or​ do you have blinders on,​ thinking only about how you can make money from the​ article you are writing? if​ your article reads like an​ ad or​ is​ self-serving or​ full of​ affiliate links,​ you might write like Mr. Krabs.

Patrick: SpongeBob’s best friend,​ the​ starfish,​ has a​ good heart,​ but isn't the​ brightest creature in​ the​ sea. Do your articles make you sound like an​ expert? Are you providing valuable content or​ just pushing out sloppy articles as​ fast as​ you can? Always double check for typos and grammatical errors. if​ you're challenged by spelling and grammar,​ hire a​ Virtual Assistant or​ Copywriter to​ proofread and submit your article for you. or​ slow down,​ set your article aside for a​ day and then reread it​ before you click the​ “submit” button.

Plankton: the​ smallest creature in​ the​ sea is​ also the​ sneakiest. He’ll do anything and hurt anyone to​ steal someone else’s work (the Krabby Pattie secret formula). Write your own material. Don’t be Plankton. Don’t copy and paste someone else’s work,​ edit it,​ and try to​ pass it​ off as​ your own. You will be caught,​ and it​ just isn’t worth it. Take the​ same amount of​ effort and work on​ your own thoughts and ideas. Plankton never gets away with his schemes,​ either. He’s on​ Plan “Z” and is​ still pathetically failing at​ his attempts to​ steal the​ secret formula.

SpongeBob: This little guy always tries to​ do the​ right thing,​ and is​ a​ hard worker. He may not always end up getting the​ results he hoped for,​ but he bounces back and tackles his work with a​ renewed vigor. SpongeBob works very hard,​ he's a​ good friend,​ he always thinks of​ others,​ and tries to​ have fun no matter what he is​ faced with. Hardworking,​ friendly SpongeBob is​ the​ guy to​ be when writing articles.

Although this is​ a​ silly lesson in​ article writing,​ I hope you'll remember the​ important messages our underwater friends have taught us.

1. Be entertaining. Not boring.

2. Write articles to​ help others,​ not with dollar signs in​ your eyes.

3. Proofread your articles carefully,​ and provide valuable information.

4. Write your own material. Don’t copy others.

5. Be a​ SpongeBob! Hard work and persistence pay off.

Before you know it,​ you'll develop a​ following for having informative and entertaining articles and you’ll be King or​ Queen of​ the​ sea.
