Good habits take practice and repetition. If you want to develop good eating, exercise or study habits, you have to work at it. The same is true for your blog and the rest of your social media habits. As, ProBlogger Darren Rowse explains, it requires a system. He outlines five steps to improving your blog.
- Don’t bite off more than you can chew
- Regularity is more important than High Frequency
- Under Promise and Over Deliver
- Build a Schedule
- Have Someone (or Something) Manage You
While all of these are important, I think number 3 tops my list. This applies to more than just your blog. The same is true for email. Don’t promise a weekly or monthly email, and then fail to deliver .
To be sure I always have new content, I always write more than one post at a sitting. I like to have at least a half dozen stacked up and ready to use. If I hit a dry spell, or I am just really busy, I still have something new to share with my readers.
