I don’t know how everyone else does it but daily posting can become an exercise in putting something up on the blog rather than writing anything thoughtful.
At any one time I have 10-15 headlines and outlines for blog entries. Some days I’ll write up a few and other days it’s like pulling teeth. You may notice the tougher days when you see my weaker posts – a few sentences and a video. The days I actually connect with my work I draft much longer pieces. Today however is not one of those days. There’s no video but you can be sure that I really wasn’t that into it.
I’ll keep plugging away though. Even on days that I don’t want to post I still may stumble across an idea that will feed a future piece. The main obstacle for me is getting away from writing articles and just sharing some thoughts.
How do you write a post when you don’t want to spend any time on it? Do you just post up a few sentences? Do you feel that everything has to read like an article?
