Someone recently asked me how to start blogging. A few years ago my reply would have been to research SEO, plug in’s, blogging platforms, and so on.
Today my answer is set up an account on WordPress and write regularly. It doesn’t matter if it is once or twice a week or daily. Commit. Start. Write consistently. Be authentic. Figure it out as you go. SEO. Plug-In’s. Blog challenges. Keyword searches. Graphics.
Since I started my business, one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that done is better than perfect. It took a bit for me to swallow that, to absorb it, and now to believe it. It hurts sometimes. To change. To allow myself to do something in public that may not be perfect. To proof my blog only twice instead of a dozen times.
But I do. Okay, okay. so actually I am down to proofing my posts just six times. That’s progress!
What have you always wanted to do? Do it now, and stop expecting yourself to be perfect or as good as someone who has done it for years. Just start.
