The title of this blog post is about how to help you from slacking off from the blogging routine, but the principles that I am going to state here can be applied to a multitude of tasks that we need to regularly carryout in order that we can be a success in our business.
Why am I blogging about this? Well, after we have been blogging for a while and we starting to reap the rewards of increased traffic, sales and recognition. It’s easy to forget how it was in the beginning, it’s easy to forget how difficult it was to build up the momentum and only to lose it all and have to start all over again when we stop blogging for a month or two.
The same goes for sending out regular newsletters, sending out emails to our subscribers, doing videos and articles, interacting on twitter and facebook, responding to messages the list goes on.
So what can we do to make sure this never happens?
- Don’t over commit – When striving for success and an abundant life of everything we desire, it is easy to bite of more than we can chew. This is especially true for those building a home based business while still working that 9 to 5. My biggest piece of advice is to work out what you want to concentrate on, get good at it and then either get quicker, get automated or outsource. Don’t spread yourself too thinly, it’s better to excel in one area than have a little bit of knowledge in lots.
2. Build a blogging schedule – Be realistic and decide how you can be as productive as possible with the time that you have. You are going to have to find a time when you can research, write, type up and edit your post. Decide when a good time to write is? In the beginning, a blog post can take a few hours but over time, ideas will flow and you will be able to write a blog post in next to no time at all.
If you don’t think you have the will power to commit regularly to writing a blog post. Why not shut yourself away for a day and write as many blog posts as possible. Every December I attempt to write 52 original blog posts, so that I always have a blog post for each week of the year.
3. Have an accountability Partner – After you have done some general networking online, you will no doubt find other bloggers in similar niches who are trying to achieve the same thing as you. Why not approach someone you resonate with and ask them if they will be your accountability partner. This way, you will have someone to report to every week and who you can bounce ideas off. A great place to find bloggers willing to help each other out is within the TSA Mastery.
- Something to Blog About – One of the biggest stumbling blocks that Bloggers have, is not knowing what to blog about. When you have been in the blogging game long enough, you will find ideas flowing out of you. But once in a while we all need a little help with the writer’s block.
- Read other blogs
- Set up Google Alerts for your Niche
- Use Alltop.com, Stuff to Tweet, Mashable
- Ask your readers what they want.
So now you don’t have any excuses not to blog, let me know what methods you use to make sure that you don’t give up on the blogging game.
Yours in Success,
