Article Body:
Content is really important for webmasters. Why? When people surf the
web, they are looking for information. They aren't looking for you
specifically, unless you're well-known. If they visit your site and don't
what they're looking for, they will leave quickly. And they probably
won't return to your site. Well, they might stumble back onto your site,
but not on purpose.

Quality sites provide quality content. Quality content helps you retain
visitors. Visitors may spread the word about your site and thus attract
new visitors.

Adding new high quality content to your site regularly is also
beneficial. With more content, you will have more pages indexed by the
search engines. More pages indexed means you will have more
opportunities for people to find you via search engines.

So how exactly do you get content for your site?

<b>1. Your unique knowledge</b>

Everybody knows something others don't. Use your own unique insight and
knowledge to provide content. Think of what activities you've
participated in the past. Think of what you've learned through past
experiences. Any experiences can help, whether at home, school, work, or
anywhere else. Of course, providing your own content regularly can be
very difficult.

<b>2. Personal stories</b>

Personal stories are the basis of some sites and blogs. Want to connect
with your audience and let them know more about you? Use personal
stories. However, if you don't want to be too personal, make sure you
inject your personality into your writing. Personality differentiates
you from the rest and can keep visitors coming back.

<b>3. How-to guides</b>
People have problems and like to figure out how to solve them. Had some
problem you struggled with for a while? Did you eventually solve it? The
way you solved it could be written into a how-to guide. Or write a how-
to guide about your expert area. For example, if you're a technical
computer whiz, you could write a how-to guide for fixing computers.

<b>4. Do research</b>

Do some research on the web. Use search engines, search directories, and
follow links to find relevant sites. Do some research at your local
library. Grab some books about your site's topic and start digging
through them. Find local experts, teachers, and professors and ask them
questions about your site's topic. When you research, note down
interesting ideas and you'll undoubtedly learn more. You'll have more
unique knowledge that you can turn into content. You might even discover
something earth-shattering!

<b>5. Subscribe to newsletters</b>

Good newsletters are a great way to keep informed about a particular
topic. They can keep you informed of offers that you may be able to
provide on your own site. As well, they can keep you on top of what's
happening in your area by providing time-sensitive content.
