In 2009 I jumped off the blogging ledge and into cyberspace. I had no idea what I was doing. I just followed blogs I enjoyed and tried to do what they did. I blogged because I learned that the industry professionals demanded it. Writers must blog in order to gain a platform and discover their tribe.
And while I have gained a small following, the reason why blogging has been so good for me is because it’s taught me about deadlines and consistency. And because of the need to post on a schedule, knowing that somebody was expecting my post for the day, I in time have become a better writer.
It’s like practicing the piano or any instrument.
If you plan to publish a post once a week, writing thirty minutes a day should help you easily reach that goal. Blog posts should be under 600 words–that’s not too long. You can do it!
Tip for the day:
Write thirty minutes everyday and publish a post at least once a week. Tweet this!
Blogging with you,
