Keep Blogging, Even When You Think You Can’t — 3 Tips

Creative tasks
Keep blogging with these tips…

Finding time to keep blogging brings up all kinds of issues for busy people. In fact, it may well be the biggest fear that many have about starting and sustaining a blog.

Time often feels scarce and is easily filled with daily tasks. How can you squeeze one more thing in? And if you’ve already got a blog, how do you keep blogging when unexpected tasks have to be shoehorned into your schedule?

Well, blogging is a key component in many successful on-line businesses. And yet, time worries often get in the way of making the most of this powerful tool.  

How often have you felt the “I don’t have time to blog” issue?

We each have 24 hours in our day, and many different tasks and priorities clamoring for our time.  If you don’t want time fears to keep you and your blog silently stuck, here are 3 time tips to help you get yourself to hit that “Publish” button and keep your information flowing!

Keep Blogging — Your Tips

  • Set yourself a doable goal to start.

    Don’t tell yourself that you are going to blog every day if that isn’t realistic for you.  Maybe start with a goal of publishing once a week, and see how it goes.  Start small and succeed. You can then expand on your goal, once you have created a solid base for yourself. If you set the bar too high and don’t make it, you are just reinforcing your fears about time and blogging.  You’ll get discouraged, lose confidence, and lose momentum.  That’s NOT the outcome that you are looking for.
  • Keep reminding yourself of the very real (and very large) benefits of blogging.

    A blog is a marketing tool that works for your 24/7. The time you invest in creating content is worth every minute as it is attracting new readers and potential customers to your site via search engines. Try creating your own, personal list of blogging benefits as a reminder and added motivation.  Tack it to the wall near your computer, and look at it when you are stuck.

One more tip to help you keep blogging…

  • Write your posts in batches and produce “extra” when you have the time.

    When you are on a roll, it’s important to make the most of that time.  I find it is often easier to write a series of posts in one sitting than to create them one-at-a-time.  I also like to stay a few posts ahead, so that if something unexpected comes up and usurps my blogging time, I have some posts in reserve that I can use.

    It’s also a good idea to keep a list of ideas that are percolating.  Or you can start some draft posts and then leave them for a bit.  You’ll be surprised at how your ideas take shape, even when you are not directly working on them.  

    The key is to capture your creative bursts when they come and have them available for finalizing when you find the time.

If time fears get in the way of your blogging, I hope you’ll give these tips a try, and add your own as you move through obstacles and keep blogging.
