Beginner blogging is frustrating. That is my personal opinion. I haven’t been doing this long, but it doesn’t seem like it is as easy as everyone says.
I think a few of the minor details have been left when people speak of starting blogs. Some things need to be fine tuned to stay organized.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to blog. I have found a new passion. It helps me to get out my thoughts and ideas in a creative form. It also covers the advice area. I LOVE to give people advice. It may not be right, or what they want to hear, but I give it. Sometimes without them asking. But I give it.
Recently I decided to start to write down my blogging list of “to do’s”. I have a calendar that helps me with my posting, stats, and giveaways (still trying to put one of those together).
Still, my actual how to run this blog was scattered, unorganized and needed direction. Here is what I did to create direction.
1. Write down daily goals. What exactly do you want to do in your blog and for your blog on a daily basis. What social media do you want to focus on.
2. Try purchasing a journal or a notebook dedicated to blogging only. Don’t put down anything else in the journal. Then on a day to day basis as you sit down to blog, write down what you are doing, why, and what you would like to do the next day.
3. In the journal keep a separate page for your Facebook ideas and efforts, Twitter, Pinterest and all social media outlets you are pursuing.
Keeping everything in one place helps to keep focus on what you are doing. It also helps with discipline. If there is a list that can be crossed off daily, then it feels like something is being accomplished.
Check your journal at the end of the month and see if it is helping you to be more creative. Also, check your stats and see if they have improved.
