There's always been the never-ending debate on how to properly hang a roll of toilet paper on a toilet paper holder. Some people prefer for their toilet paper to be front-facing, meaning "over the roll," while others prefer it to be back-facing, aka "under the roll." And then there are always those of us who could really care less and we simply sit the roll of toilet paper on the back of the toilet. Point is, everyone has their own preference on how to use or hang a roll of toilet paper .
Everyone also has a preference for decent-quality toilet paper. If you're anything like me, I don't have to have the fanciest toilet paper, but it definitely needs to be at least 2-ply, preferably 3-ply, and it needs to get the job done right the first time around.
Why am I writing about toilet paper? Well, mostly it's because it's something that we all use. And for those of us who buy our own toilet paper (moms, single dudes), we usually skip past the generic brands and opt for decent toilet paper. The exact same should be applied to content creation.
When it comes to getting your hands on a good writer, you need to skip past the fluff-filled content wrote by an amateur writer who knows nothing about "good" content. This isn't to say this person can't learn how to write good content, but it's going to take time, and you don't need to be the one who suffers while this person is learning. Instead, you need a writer in your corner who can consistently produce good content.
So, this brings us to two different questions.
How to choose good toilet paper?
First of all, to choose toilet paper that will meet your needs, you must first determine what your needs are.
Do you need paper that can be flushed? Are you hard on toilet paper, meaning you need a type that won't tear easily? How many squares do you tend to use? You should always be striving to use fewer squares.
Most importantly, you have to determine what your hygiene needs are. Sure, everyone wants to feel clean after wiping, but if you require "harder" wipes, you're most definitely going to need an ultra-durable brand of toilet paper. And although such toilet paper may be more expensive, if it gets the job done the way you like it, the extra money will be well spent.
Once you have determined your needs, you will now need to do a bit of research. Fortunately, the Internet makes things super easy when researching toilet paper. You can visit review sites where people give their own testimonies about different types of toilet paper, and more importantly, you can visit actual toilet paper websites to identify the ins-and-outs of each brand. For example, by visiting Charmin.com, you can compare this company's different types of toilet paper, including how thick each type is, how durable it is and much more.
After you have conducted thorough research, you'll be able to find peace of mind in the toilet paper decision that you make. You won't have to worry about purchasing toilet paper that can't be flushed because you will have already learned this. And you won't have to worry about making the mistake of buying toilet paper that everyone hates because you will have already visited review sites.
See, buying toilet paper isn't all that hard is it? I prefer White Cloud 3-Ply Ultra Bathroom Tissue. It's inexpensive--about a quarter for 100 sheets--it's durable, and most importantly, it gets the job done according to my needs and preferences.
How to choose a good writer?
As you can imagine, I'm going to equate the steps in choosing a good writer to those followed when choosing good toilet paper.
At first, you need to determine your needs. Does the writer need to provide content on a consistent basis (daily, weekly, monthly)? Does the writer need to enter into some type of employment agreement with you? Or can the writer be hired on a freelance basis? What type of content do you need (blog posting, press release, white paper, etc...)? What is your budget for a writer? Can the writer produce content in a short amount of time (believe it or not, most can't, or won't)?
Just the same as determining your needs for toilet paper, once you have identified your needs and wants in a writer, you can then start doing research for this type of content creator. If the person needs to live in Kentucky, you could do a quick Google search for content creators in Kentucky. You'll immediately be provided with a long list of writers who meet this criteria. You can also research according to the type of content you need. For example, a search for "press release writer" will provide you with thousands of people who can write a press release for you.
How are you to choose the best writer though? Well, in all honesty, it's your choice, just the same as it's your choice on the type of toilet paper that you buy. My advice is to find two to three writers that you're interested in, and then give each writer a small assignment, such as producing a 300-word blog posting. Whichever writer does completes your order according to YOUR needs is your go to content creator.
You'll also want to take into consideration the fee schedules of the writers. There are writers out there who will create a 300-word blog posting for under $3, but this content most likely won't be good (maybe not even understandable). And then you have writers who charge $200 for a 300-word blog posting (Boo!). Unless there are 10 hours of research that need to be conducted, there's no reason to pay a writer $200 for a 300-word blog posting. Lastly, you have writers like me. For a 300-word blog posting, I charge right at $17, and yes, the content that I produce is good.
The Take Away
Any good toilet paper that's worth spending money on will come with a refund policy, meaning if you don't like it, you can get your money back. A good content writer will have the same type of policy. If you don't like the content and you don't want to buy the copyrights to it, then so be it. You can keep your money and the writer can keep the content.
All in all, the main point of this posting is that choosing good toilet paper is a lot like choosing a good writer. Who would have ever thought the two were similar to one another? Crazy!
