blogging is a journey, an adventure. As you keep showing up to your blog, you grow as blogger. For example, you learn how to write better blog post titles.
Becoming a better blogger definitely takes time and effort 👩🏽💻. When you feel like you got a million things going on in your life, does blogging start taking last place?
As you continue to schedule in blogging time into your already packed calendar, you can still keep blogging productive. Productive blogging starts with finding a meaningful purpose, structuring blogging, and giving your best effort
#1. find a meaningful purpose
As of late, my intention for this blog has been to keep it on a hopeful-positive-light vibe.
The intention is that readers will find hope for the day, inspiration to feel joy, or strength to follow their dreams.
In much the same way as I feel inspired when I watch Marie Forleo’s videos on YouTube (she always ends her videos with, “the world needs that special gift that only you have”)
and in much the same way, I feel wholeness when I scroll down the “You Are Luminous” feed on Instagram, I want this blog to help readers get out of a funk or help support them during difficult times of self growth 🌱.
Find a meaningful purpose for your blog, so that when you feel like giving up or you feel like not showing up, you remember why your content matters.
#2. structure your blogging
At the beginning of my blogging journey I had no structure.
Little by little the structure came, starting with a blogging schedule followed by setting aside writing time.
When you give your blogging structure, you find discipline and motivation to write even when your eyes feel droopy after a long day of work.
You begin to write way ahead of the scheduled times. You find the right balance between reading other blogs and writing for your blog.
#3. give your best effort
It’s super important to keep growing as bloggers. Sometimes I’ve gone back and reread posts that I wrote a long time ago, and I can’t believe what I wrote because I’m always changing as a blogger.
To give you an example, this whole week I used a GIF in every blog post, I also recently changed the color of the post headings to gold.
Give your best effort during the time you’ve allotted to blogging. Within that time frame, choose the most important things that need to get done.
I hope these tips help you experience a meaningful and productive blogging journey!
