My goal is to write a blog post 5 – 7 times a week (that doesn’t mean I will write everyday, you can breathe now!). When I aim to blog almost everyday I tend to generate new ideas for a blog posts easily. You see, when blogging is on your mind everyday you will go through your day thinking about what to blog about next. Ideas will come naturally to you. Clients and potential clients will give you ideas through conversations, questions, tweets and emails. Events in your life, commercials you see, books you read, workshops you attend etc will spark the creative bug in you.
Now that you have generated ideas for your upcoming blog posts what do you do with them? Many people feel like they “have to” write the blog post right away. Others rely on memory to remind them of all their ideas when they are ready to write. Well, you don’t have to write your posts right away and if you rely on your memory you are setting yourself up for disappointment (your brain has enough to think about!).
Instead develop the habit of gathering your blog post ideas in your WordPress account. I like to stay logged into WordPress all day. When I get an idea for a blog post I create a new post, quickly enter the idea in the title field then click “save draft”. I then go back to whatever it was I was doing when the idea came to mind.
When the time comes to write a blog post I can view all of my draft posts, scan the titles and complete the one that stands out the most.
Do you like this idea? How soon will you start implementing it? Let me know below.
