It is so easy to write when you start your blog.
I remember the first two months of starting my blog, I was writing virtually every single day and sometimes even twice a day. I remember reading other bloggers posts saying things like “sorry I haven’t posted in a while, my new goal is to post once a week” I was like what! How could you not find things to write about?!
Then it happened- I got writer’s block. And the everyday struggle was thinking “What should I write about?”
Last week, I met with a freelance writer. She’s written for MSNBC, Refinery 29, and other very well-known publications.
When we got to chatting, I told her my problem:
“It was so easy writing when I started! But now I feel like writing less and less. I don’t even know what to talk about.”
Can you relate?
Well here’s the advice she gave me-
“Some of my favorite bloggers don’t even write everyday. They pick certain days to post. It’s about the consistency. Find the same day every week to post and find something unique to post about so people will be looking for your posts on that specific day every week.”
She showed me a blogger who literally just creates posts with links to her favorite articles every Tuesday. Like what?! I could do something like this. It sounds doable.
Find something that makes your blog unique and make it a weekly post.
I love this advice.
What do you do to ensure you have things to write about and don’t go MIA for months?
Let me know!
Thanks for reading.
