Are You Sabotaging Your Blog?

The Art of Blogging

Correct me if I’m wrong: you know you should write a blog post. After all, it’s been a while since you last hit that publish button. Yet, somehow, without you realizing it, you spend hours on Twitter and Facebook “working,” only to wonder later what happened…

You commenton other blogs, telling yourself you’re “networking,” never mind that none of those comments actually lead to anything.

You have a growing collection of books and courses promising to teach you all the secrets in the universe, but they have been labeled “to be read” indefinitely.

In the back of your mind, you know you can do better. Technically, you even know what to do.

But something inside you refuses to let you, and every day you struggle with whether or not you should just give up or find some other shortcut.

You know how I know this?

Because I’m just like you.

  1. This rusty knife has pierced my gut with surprising efficiency. And it has hit its target with nearly perfect accuracy as I sit here and respond to this blog post while not writing a blog post of my own…

  2. Agree with all of it. I find it always hard to find time and write a new post. My posts usually include photos of my paintings and it always takes plenty of time to upload the images and then edit them (e.g. cutting the image, adding or reducing contrast, adjusting colours). Than I have to think of a name of my painting and about the name of the blog post (can be the same), short descripition, size, material, year….and a ton of other things…..phew!
