In no way shape or form am I someone who should be giving you blogging tips. I’m still figuring it out, my stream of conscious isn’t everyone’s flavor and hey, that’s fine.
Today I was meeting with a client and he wants to start a blog on his website. Seeing as how the website’s current blog is a canned piece that he doesn’t write, and his tumblr account has two posts from a year ago I asked him for one thing:
Write blog posts for a month.
Just try writing a blog. Save the posts as word docs and just write when you have time. This way if you decide you like it, you have a back stock for those busy weeks. And if after a month you’ve written three posts, you know that maybe blogging isn’t the right fit for you.
And that’s OK. You don’t have to do everything, and if you do decide that your website needs a blog and you aren’t going to be the one to write it, that’s fine. There are a lot of great copywriters and freelance writers who will write your blog in your voice way better (and consistently) than you do.
What do you WANT to do but are afraid won’t work out? Take a month to practice and see how it goes. You might be surprised what you learn!
