I am surveying my database of clients and readers about their biggest challenges when it comes to ezines and blogs. Not surprisingly, many people are stuck finding the time to sit down and write.
More surprisingly, people don’t even have time to read or answer emails like they used to. I gotta ask, "Is it me?" Whereas I used to get many immediate responses to my email questions, this time my query has not gotten many responses.
I think it’s my fault. Really I do. It’s because I sandwiched my survey question, "What’s the biggest challenge you face with your ezine?" in between an announcement for my telecoaching program on ezines and blogs starting next Tuesday March 1 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Oh boy, there I did it again. I started to write this really good post about finding the time to write for your ezines and blogs, and I couldn’t help myself.
My evil marketing self had to slip in a reminder about the telecoaching program!
Shut up, I’m writing here.
So, most coaches and consultants are really busy professionals and hardly have time to read and answer their emails, let alone manage the time and mental space to write coherent thought-provoking articles about leadership and management issues.

Hey, excuse me, I’m writing some serious stuff here about writing for your blogs and ezines. So here’s what I’ve discovered about the writing tasks and time management:
Only you know when you are at your most brilliant and productive for writing. For some it’s first thing in the morning. Others are night owls. Pick a time and consecrate it for writing. It doesn’t matter if it is for ten minutes or an hour. Stick to it.
Once you establish a writing habit, you will find that it is not a question of time, but of discipline. Like exercising, getting started is the hard part.
One reason many people like blogging is because it allows them to be more spontaneous and informal. You can let your mind free flow with your thoughts…
