There are tons of discussions in G+ communities, LinkedIn blog groups, and Twitter about how often we should blog and how often we should post. Note that I still separate the two. I use blog in the same way as the verb “to write.” I call hitting the publish button posting.
I see so many bloggers ask others what they should do. But then all they do with that information is getting frustrated that someone else has time to blog daily and they don’t.
Everyone has a different calendar. Some of us have kids and some don’t. Result: different time schedules. Many of us have a day job. Result: limited spare time schedules. We do not all have the same life.
Even if we all worked for the same company our calendars would still be different. A company has different dynamics in every department or segment of the business. If you can accept that in the business world why can’t you accept that in the blogosphere? You blog when you have something to say, when you have inspiration, and the time to put it online. So here are your dos:
- check that you have something to say
- make sure you can put your thoughts into words
- blog about it
- enjoy the process of thinking, blogging, and seeing your post online
There, that’s it. Start here and everything else will come.
