Blogging is a common and relatively simple action these days. In fact there are over 150 million blogs on the Internet, and I heard somewhere half of those are about cats. In all that blog “fluff”, how do you get your business blog noticed? Where do you begin? And how do you keep it going?
Maybe you began by going to a blog platform website and started writing. I did that once or twice. Or maybe it was hard to keep up because your message was unclear or unfocused. That’s what happened to me . Let me know if you recognize this… you start a blog, then wrote five posts, then forgot to post for several months? Well, me too. This is why I studied the topic, attended workshops from some masters, and then set out to reinvigorate my own blog. While I was assembling my notes, I thought, why not take others with me?
I decided to create a template with simple instructions and tips and specific action items. Then, I would follow all the steps myself. Along the way, I felt the need for accountability and heard that authors have critique groups, so I thought that these actions would be a natural framework of accountability.
And that’s how my new ebook, “5 Decisions: Creating a Blog” being released later this month, was conceived. If you are new to blogging or restarting an old blog, would you like to blog with me?
