When 2014 came in, I still hadn’t come up with a proper blogging approach and it was weighing on me heavily. I enjoy writing and being able to share information with you, the fact that my mind had drawn a complete blank really bothered me. Up until this point, the only strategy I had was the weekly social media updates and there were many weeks where there was no updates at all.
What I was experiencing outside influences affecting my creative mojo. This is a big reason not to depend on it. When things must be done, they should be finished then and there and not when you feel like it. A big lesson for the first month of the new year!
I read a good eBook this week that is completely changing my blogging strategy.
How to Blog for Profit Without Selling Your Soul not an affiliate link 😉
I’ve been in search for inspiration and help to really hone in on what to write. It’s one of those things where you know what to write but it’s just stuck (aka good ole‘ writer‘s block!). After reading this ebook by Ruth Soukup, I’m forever changed.
Usually, I’ll get the sample of the book and check it out first, but this one, I decided to check out the reviews. There were a lot of rave reviews about the book and one that really stood out stated it was a great book even for those who’ve been blogging for awhile. Even though I’ve been on my website blogging since 2010, I don’t really consider myself a blogger. I’m a technical virtual assistant/web designer, who uses a blog to let people know about what I do.
This book helped me to put things into perspective and better organize my ideas, thoughts, and approach to blogging. If you’ve been stuck lately or just getting started, I highly recommend it.
In addition to this book, I also was inspired by an article over on Problogger.net. This gives lots of ideas on how to come up with topics for your blog. Bringing all of this information together caused a major ah-ha moment on a snowy Tuesday afternoon. You’ll start seeing things change around here in regards to the frequency of post, quality of content, and fun.
It’s my pleasure to serve you each and every day in my virtual office. Whether we’ve worked on an actual project, chatted over on my Facebook page, Twitter, or Instagram, you’re a big part of why giving up is not an option. Why I seek new and better ways of doing things.
Cheers to a successful blogging year!
