“I hate writing, but I love having written.”
Are any of the following familiar?
- You sit down to write, but can’t think of anything to write about
- You have plenty of blogging ideas, but the words to express the ideas won’t flow
- You start to write a post, but scrap it because you don’t think it’s good enough
- You let other things distract you while writing which keeps you from finishing
They’re all familiar to me. What do you do when blogging becomes difficult? What do you do to get the creative juices flowing again?
How do you decide what topic to write about when guest posting for another blog? What tone should you take in your writing? How can you get the most ROI from your guest posting opportunity?
What convinced you to make your last online purchase? Why do you read a particular blogger? You might have purchased or subscribed because of something you read on the site in question. You might also have purchased or subscribed because of something you read away from the site in the question.
Sometimes what you say away from your site is the key to success on your site.
What should you do with your best content? The normal reaction would be to post it to your site, but is it possible that giving away your best content can be more effective? The answer depends on your business strategy and goals as well as your current situation, but sometimes giving away great content can be more valuable than keeping it for yourself.
What do you do when it’s your scheduled day to blog and the writing won’t come? Do the tumbleweeds reign when you’re low on blogging ideas? How about when you have a busy week ahead of you, but you still want to post? You might do like I recently did and take a week or so off. You wouldn’t have to though, if you developed a blogging bank account.
