There are a ton of projects I have taken on in the last few years. I have created a slew of blogs, a sports podcast and a variety of single episodic video blogs. With all of these creative ventures, I have realized how incredibly hard it is to maintain each and every one. I don’t mean that at the same time, but even just one. I have really craved the ability to write a blog that lasts more than a week. I want something that has a history and archive over time. What’s so hard about it? Consistency, passion and dedication for starters.
I have spent many nights setting up blogs, photoshopping banners and organizing colors to get a blog looking great; only to have it quickly lose steam a day or two after. For a single night I am the most motivated blog writer in the world. As soon as I run out of steam though, the blog slowly dies with it. It’s frustrating and depressing at the same time. I would love to have material to write about daily let alone weekly, but it just doesn’t come to me that well. The only excuse I can mustard up, is that I’m really not putting forth the true dedication it takes to be a savvy blogger.
So that leads me to reach out to anybody who reads this blog. What are some tips for writing and maintaining a blog. I want to make it clear that I’m not looking to write for fame or notoriety; but I just want to have a consistent bit of writing that I really stick to. If you’re a blogger, what are some tips or tricks you do to keep you motivated and on track. How do you come up with material on a weekly or daily basis to write on.
These are all things that I struggle with when it comes to starting a blog. I don’t know what it is that truly tickles my fancy that I can say “hey I could write about that all the time.” There are things I am enthusiastic about, but when it comes down to writing about it, I seem to lose motivation to finish it. So I’m just looking for tips with blog writing. I’m going to google that exact topic after I publish this, but I just want some pointers. I don’t want you to pitch topics, though you can if you want. I’m just not looking for the work to be done for me, but being an amateur writer, and I do feel I fall into that category; I just want to really take on a blog that has some beef behind it.
So leave some comments below, I really would appreciate it. Thanks for reading this though, even if you don’t leave any feedback.
