I took a blog hiatus that lasted about 6 years. During that time, my family expanded two-fold where we moved twice, all while I switched employers to boot. There was no workable schedule. Sure, I could’ve sat down and tried to crank out some meaningless blog posts just for the sake of creating content, but that’s hardly worth it for me, ethically speaking. “Here! Let me tell you about all this amazeballs stuff that’s been happening in my life.”
Better yet, throw said meaningless posts behind a paywall, create a shitty landing page, throw up some catchy ads on Facebook and Instagram, telling you “I’ve been blogging for 6 YEARS and I’ve put ALL my AMAZEBALLS secrets in this EXCLUSIVELY eBook, which you’ll get for FREE, if you sign up RIGHT NOW and become an ULTRA-EXCLUSIVE MEMBER of my EXCLUSIVE MASTERMINDS group for ONLY THREE PAYMENTS OF $399!!!”
Really, one of the best things you can do, if you’re just starting out in the blogosphere, is to create a workable schedule around blogging, or whatever pastime you want to improve on. I don’t spend a whole lot of time on actually writing out these posts — not nearly as much time as I think about what I’m going to write about — so I just make sure to set aside a small amount of time dedicated to typing out these letters. For me, I’ve committed to blogging three times a week any time between my morning coffee to my afternoon coffee. Hakuna Matata.
