Write, just a little bit, every day.
Easier said than done, isn’t it? And when I say write, just a little bit, every day I’m not talking about my diary. I’m talking about my blog.
I believe (and almost started this paragraph with this saying) ‘life gets in the way’. There are so many things I feel I have ‘committed’ to and the list keeps growing. So then why does something as important as my blog consistently fall to the bottom of the list?
It’s easy to write because it’s on topics I know and am passionate about. I sometimes get stuck thinking of a topic, but with a little planning I can solve that problem. I fear that sitting down and writing will take a couple of hours and I just don’t have a couple of hours to spend on me, but not all my blogs need to be long. I’m afraid that if I just write and don’t take the time to really think about it, my topics won’t fit the brand of my company and me.
Looking at the reasons I put off writing, and writing down the reasons I put off writing, I have identified a plan of action that will get me back on track. Yay!
Blogging is important to me. Being consistent is the way I will gain followers and engagement. I love sharing my marketing knowledge and I want the engagement from my followers – they are the ones who help me see all sides of a topic.
So, what is keeping you from doing what is important? Write it down, find a solution, and do it!
P.S. This blog took me 13 minutes to write. I have just proven one of my objections to writing wrong!
