Have you ever been in a blogging rut? Of course you have.
What's helpful, then, is to know how to quickly get yourself out of the slump. I've got three ways to help you do just that and create content your audience really wants to read.
My biggest challenge as a business blogger is blogging. I know, I know, what the what?!
Sometimes despite the best content ideas and noble intentions, it's a chore to type out the words, and before you know it, you're stuck in a loop of procrastinating and writing out blog posts an hour before you're scheduled to publish (because you do have a content posting schedule, right?).
So, here's my three-step strategy to get yourself out of the "I don't want to write / I don't know what to write" funk...
Between endless to-do lists and project deadlines, daily tasks can quickly pile up and get the better of us. The trick, though, is to realise the importance of working smarter, not harder in managing the overwhelm of daily to-do lists. One of the best ways I’ve found to get more done in less time without losing my mind is to theme my work days.
The fear of getting started and the fear of taking action – the doing. If you own a business, you’ve definitely experienced it on the reg yourself, and you don’t need me telling you how strong and annoying it can be. Once you give into that resistance – the fear of taking action – it’s a steady spiral down.
The best way to bring yourself out of an unproductive state, or better yet, to avoid one, is having tools and strategies on hand that you know work well for you.
