Please return to ….
I love blogging – I really do!
But lately I have struggled to actually complete a post … I have a drafts section full to the brim with half completed posts.
I spent a couple of hours staring at the blank screen .. this is NEVER ever going to be helpful!!!
Then I read other peoples blogs – always useful for seeing what everyone else is chatting about. But instead of getting the creative juices flowing I suddenly realised I’d spent the whole day ….. reading.
Then I asked on Facebook …. but the topics were either ones I’d already covered or STILL did not not excite me!!
So Plan B was in order.
First of all I STOPPED looking at the blank screen.
STOPPED reading other people’s blogs and I STOPPED worrying about it!!
I filled the gaps with some guest posts and started working on other parts of my business. The parts I had been ignoring as I was stressing myself out non-blogging!!
After a refreshing gap I went back to basics.
Page 6&7 of Blogging for Business looks in depth at ‘mind mapping‘ and that’s exactly what I did. Using the key points & questions I wrote out a mind map for the May & June and got writing!! Having a clear direction again and structure to what I was going to be writing about meant that writing wasn’t a chore. I didn’t sit staring at blank screens and I started recording ideas and a few words into my dictaphone.
