Mark it on your calendars.
For those of you who know you're not blogging enough to get good marketing results, I'm throwing out the gauntlet.
Will you take up my challenge to you? (Photo credit: Shutterstock)
All you have to do is this:
- Publish a post to your blog, today, right now.
- Then immediately start another post and save it as a draft.
- You have 24 hours to finish it and publish it.
- But once you do, start another draft.
- Repeat for 7 days, until you "get it"
- Keep on keeping on…
It's not hard. It's not even a trick. Even if your schedule interferes with the 24 hour accomplishment, it's okay.
The reason this works, is psychological, having to do with our brains are wired. The brain doesn't like unfinished business. Even if you're forgetful like me, you'll have a signal going off inside your head that encourages you to get back to finish what you started.
I am a psychologist, by training, and I read a lot of books about the brain. So trust me, this works on both a theoretical level and in real life.
I'm curious to find out what you experience once you try this for a week or so. Please hit the comment button and tell me, and don't worry, I'm going to remind you next week.
(I already have a blog post saved as a draft to remind you!)
Question: Do you have an opinion about whether or not a daily blogging habit should include the weekends, or not?
