How Many Words Do Content Creators Write Daily?

What began as a thread at WebmasterWorld on Google AdSense turned out to be applicable to all different areas of content creation.

The question posed is as follows:

The best AdSense sites, and those that usually make best money, are those that rely on user created content. But still there are many successful AdSense web sites whose content is written entirely by their creators.

For those who are creating content rich web sites, how many words per day in average can you produce?

This is a great question. I start to think about Jennifer Laycock, since I asked her in San Jose about how she's writing so much in so little time. People do exceed expectations, after all.

Food for thought: write a bit a day. The more you write, the better you get.

Great writers both highbrow (Graham Greene) and lowbrow (Stephen King) recommend a constant production rate of at least 1000 words a day. Writing is a bit like sport, in that (a) it requires fitness obtained through daily practice, and (b) the more you do, the better you get.

It seems that most content providers will write between 500-2000 words a day from the discussion.

But then there are others who take a creative spin:

I make pictures

picture = 1,000 words


(That made me smile too.)

Some people who don't write on a daily basis will still try to pump out new content ever few days which comes out much less than 500 words per day. Nothing wrong with that!

I wonder how many words I write per day. Oh, and Barry too. :)
