Publishing Blogs Post In 2013
by Tiffany Parson
I absolutely love to blog. It brings such joy to be able to get my thoughts on paper. Lately, I’ve been getting stuck at the mechanics of it all. Possibly you can relate?
Do I have the right number of words?
What’s my Flesch-Kincaid score?
Will they really be interested in this?
And then I wait…
UGH! Guess what?
It drives me nuts when I don’t hit the ‘Publish’ button. I feel incomplete and sometimes it keeps me up at night.
Should I just send it or wait? Did I do enough edits? Oh, I’ll wait until Thursday, I mean I didn’t promise a newsletter for Monday.
Oh no, it’s Saturday, oops! I need to write the Editor’s note for the weekend updates. And I go on and on all the while not publishing a thing and kicking myself all the way to another wasted week of over thinking.
In 2013 I will not do this. I’m pressing ‘Publish’
And if it’s-
…not the right number of words
…or my Kolbe score is too high
…or I’m unsure whether you’ll be interested
I’m going to let you tell me based on your tweets, comments, and shares. The only way I’ll know for sure is if I just start hitting ‘Publish’.
So here goes nothing (really a big something…) I’m clicking ‘Publish’ in 2013 and not looking back…
In 2013 I will not be holding back and going to let the smoke flow from my keyboard and have lots of fun while I’m doing it. To get ready, I’m diving into my data to see how things have been going so far. What you like and what you don’t.
And if you’re brand new to our blog or newsletter, welcome!

In the meantime, here are several social media links that I’ll be using as a guide for reviewing my data. Hope this helps you as well
An important part of marketing your business is using metrics to see the results of your efforts.
