Today's tip might be one that you might want to ignore but really shouldn’t. On Day 12 I'm challenging you to sacrifice one thing. It needs to be something that you love, that you enjoy doing, maybe something that you always do.
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.
Yes, you read that right. Today's topic is meal planning. Yes, I know it has nothing to do with blogging. And, yes, blogging is important. And, while you may have thought blogging was all I was going to talk about for this series, we have one thing that makes us different than many other bloggers. We have children! There are these little humans depend on us to give them love, attention, clean clothes, and the food that they need.
Starting a blog is overwhelming. There is no way around it. There is a lot to do. It's hard to know where your time should be spent and it's really easy to feel completely lost. But, it doesn't have to be that way. The reason so many people find themselves in this position is that they are starting off all wrong.
