There’s a huge misconception that you must wait for the right time to blog. For example, waiting to have the energy, a few hours or just feeling 100%. After writing nearly 1,000 blog posts over the years, I can truly attest that that belief system is complete BS. There will never be the right time to blog and write those articles. In fact, if you were to wait for the right time, you’ll never get one blog post out because there isn’t such thing as the right time and having the energy.
I’m writing this article at nearly 12 midnight, I’m tired, I’ve been hustling all day and my brain is switching off. However, I’m still writing and aiming to provide my best material in this article.
That’s just the way it goes when it comes to blogging or writing for that matter. You just have to sit down and write. Every single writer out there all say that you have to force out your great work on paper and then it will eventually flow.
I admit, nearly 80% of all articles I write for my blog site are all crafted when I’m tired and lacking energy. Sometimes I can blog right after my workout and I can really pump out some great material but most of the time, I’m in low energy mode.
After reading my “low energy” articles, I find that there isn’t much difference compared to a high energy article, maybe a few more paragraphs and ideas, that’s it.
Remember the name of the game is to write as many blog posts as you can because if you do, you’ll reach out to more people and increase website traffic.
Here are some great ways to blog even when you can’t be bothered.
Write the first word.
One way to get the ball rolling is to simply sit down and write the first word. As you put that first word on paper, your blog will eventually flow and you’ll be motivated to finish writing your article piece. The first word may be the hardest but once you have started it, you’ll find yourself finishing your work and that makes all the difference.
Just force it out.
Seriously, just do it. You may think that you’re creating crap quality articles, well did you know that Sweet Child of Mine written by Guns and Roses was a crap quality song? You never know what type of work you produce that will be a home run. The blogs that you think deserves an award ends up being a stinker. However the ones you may perceive to be low quality, short and crap, ends up being the best thing since sliced bread and is read by a million people.
So the moral of the story is to simply force out your knowledge and just get it done. You never know.
Don’t worry about it.
It’s just a blog post guys. Don’t worry about it. Your articles can be 300 words, or it can be 2,000 words. It doesn’t matter. You’re not writing the next War and Peace novel, you’re just writing a blog post for crying out loud.
Probably the best advice I can give you about blogging is that your honing your skills in writing and in order to become a great writer, you need to write every single day, whether you feel like it or not.
Stay Strong and Be Relentless.
