How to get clued up in the least amount of time


I'm getting into a few markets that I don't know a lot about,

I have a list of subjects I want to write a little bit about, what is the fastest way to get something written down about the subject without plagiarising other websites?

Or is there a dynamic way to do this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

One way is to collect RSS feeds into a program such as rssbandit or klipfolio.  Using Google News, Google search, Yahoo Search and others, create RSS feeds that combine into a tidy little content engine for your subjects.  While you'll be unable to use the content as it comes off of the feed, you'll be able to review a wide variety of information that can make writing flow more easily.  By maintaining a broad view of the topic, your thoughts flow more freely.

Should you not want to do the writing itself, simply outline your intent and provide the RSS profiles to a struggling writer at a local university or news journal.  Let them ghost write for you. Journalism students in particular are terrific for fleshing out a topic, and often desperate for extra money.  Another method is using Elance, which has a good collection of writers ready to produce small blocks of content from your outline, providing you don't care where they are geographically.

Hopefully you're not looking for an automated content generator - they do exist, but they are simply SPAM, and Google among others are quick to ban them when reported.  

As for me, should it not be obvious :-)  I enjoy writing.  It provides a creative outlet and I never mind producing content for sites I have interest in.
