Blogging through the Busyness of Business

Blogging as a discipline can be especially difficult when you’re the chief cook and bottle washer – when everything rests on you – and seemingly lesser endeavours, “non pay side activities” are crowded out by daily (deadline driven) demands and the noise of the urgent.

Looking back over this month’s blog activity I realize I have fallen off the wagon. No excuses, just an observation. And I am positive, there are ways to fight this battle and win.

Here are a few ideas:

  1. Give yourself permission to not get it right all the time.
  2. Keep starting. Fall off the wagon a few times. But get up, dust yourself off and get back on again.
  3. Have a schedule. And block off time to write.
  4. Keep an idea file handy. This is becoming more and more important to me.
  5. Use a blogging template – I really haven’t found the one that works completely for me, but they’re a great starting point.

Tell me, what has worked for you? What disciplines have you put in place to keep you blogging through the busyness?
