Always write one post ahead of time. Publish one, start another immediately, save it.

This one tip is guaranteed to get you blogging more often.
Here's how it works: once you've got a post published, start another one right away and save it as a draft. Then you always have one "in the hopper." You can go in and finish it up later.
Then, as soon as it's published or scheduled to publish, go in and start a draft of your next post. Don't finish it, just start it.
This "one-in-the-hopper" tip is the biggest reason my blogging frequency has doubled without that much increase in blogging time or effort.
Try it, you'll like it!
The reason it works is because your mind continues to work on it even when it's only just started and saved as a draft. The brain doesn't like unfinished business. When you do go and finish it up, you'll find that it's easier, faster, better.
[Action Tip: Go do this now, or mark a time in your calendar (1/2 hour?) you will publish a post and immediately start another. Try it for 2-3 days in a row and get back to me how it works for you.]
