Just Write

AddNewPostDo you ever feel like you just don’t blog often enough?  And what’s your excuse? “I’m busy” is lame. You have thoughts in your head that need to be expressed and shared. You simply have to make the time, develop the habit.

It doesn’t have to be long. Seth Godin’s post from yesterday was 49 words.

It doesn’t have to be every day. Some say it’s awesome, others say it’s silly. But try it for a week, or a month, to start building the habit.

There are two keys to making this happen:

  1. Schedule the time. Personally, I recommend planning on it earlier in the day, rather than later. First of all, your mind is fresher (I wake up with ideas that would make great blog posts, don’t you?). Secondly, if you miss it, you can still make it up at multiple opportunities later in the day — lunch, after work, after dinner, before bed, etc.
  2. Make it easy.  Make your “Add New Post” page the first bookmark on your bookmarks bar.  Have your content ideas and curation sources at your fingertips, ready to go. Learn the tools that make the process easier.

Now go write!
