We touched a little over the past 13 days on how difficult it can be to keep a good balance when building a blogging business. You have a family that needs your attention and a never-ending to-do list of blogging tasks that are just waiting to be done. It's easy to get super focused on one or the other and lose track of what you should be doing. That's why you need a person in your life that can help you put things into perspective.
I know this tip looks like it has nothing to do with blogging and that's true. This is not about blogging. But, it is about running a business. Building a successful blogging business doesn't always have to do with blogging and making money.
We are going to start off Day 11 with an assignment. I want you to block off some time over the next couple of days to sit down and create a list of 26 blog post ideas. It could take you some time and you might not be able to get it all done at once. So, reserve some time over at least two days to make sure that it happens.
Now, obviously micromanaging is not dangerous as in your life is at risk, but it can have a negative impact on your life and business. When I learned not to micromanage it made a huge impact on both my personal growth and business growth. And, that's why I am addressing this as part of our 30-day series.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret of mine—I don't always like sitting down to write. Does that surprise you? A lot of people get the impression that bloggers just love sitting down and pouring over their keyboards with words just spilling out of their fingers. Don't get me wrong, there are times when it feels like that. There are times when I can't seem to get the words out fast enough. But, then there are plenty of days when I sit down and just can't seem to force myself to start writing. Can you relate?
If you have been asking yourself questions like "What do I write about?", "What blog post ideas will my readers connect with?", or simply "Where do I start?" don't worry. I have you covered. I'm going to share 6 theme ideas that readers love. These are general ideas which will allow you to easily tailor them to your category or niche. You can just choose one to use on your first, or next, blog post and get started.
