I’ve been watching the grass grow around the house and thinking to myself that I need to get to it soon. Every day it grows imperceptibly longer, but the net effect of a week’s procrastination is that it will now take me much longer to mow than normal. That’s because I will have to empty the grass bag much more often. Trying to keep up with your blog calendar can very similar.
Blogging and Lawn Mowing
If I let it go much longer, it will be exponentially more difficult because I will find that it is so thick that I have to raise the mower to do the first pass or the roots will be exposed. I’ll likely have to mow it twice just to get back on track. Getting back up to speed from getting off your blogging calendar produces the same kind of feeling.
Writing an article for your blog is not unlike that because, with each passing day that you don’t write something, the pressure mounts to write something spectacular to make up for not writing anything.
Just Write Something
Simple lesson – carve out the time to write something today. It doesn’t have to be amazing and it doesn’t have to be long. It doesn’t need to be the product of some special blog training course, but it does have to make an important point.
And here is the point of today’s article – a short post that makes an important point today is much more valuable than a long post that never makes it’s point because it never gets written.
Now, I’ve got to go mow the lawn…. twice!
