I don’t know what I was thinking when I gave myself the same homework I am giving my students at Inbound Marketing University.
I must have been out of my mind. I really don’t have the time. Or maybe I just didn’t think I have the time. Or most likely, I just didn’t want to discipline myself to have the time.
Now I am in the same class trying to maintain the same workload that I expect from my students.
So … I face the same question I faced way back when. How do I fit this blogging think into my daily life?
How can I get my blogging rhythm?
This past weekend my wife and daughter and I went to Santa Cruz to play on the beach. The 45-minute trip home took 2.5 hours. I was exhausted. We got home around 8 or so instead of before dinner.
The girls were rested and watched television. I went to my computer to write the day’s quota.
Yesterday I had to get up early to take my daughter to her first day of kindergarten. After that I headed to the gym, then to the classroom to get ready for the week’s Inbound Marketing Lesson. My daughter got out earlier than I expected and I needed to be home with her.
We played. Some things are more important than anything. My daughter and wife went to dance class. I made dinner.
After we ate it was pretty late and I wanted to watch a DVD from Netflix. It was the last in a series that I had been waiting for.
But … I hadn’t finished my quota for the day so I headed or my computer and wrote.
Point – the answer to finding your rhythm – find your priorities. Make getting your daily quota of work done a priority. Then get it done. If it’s important enough you’ll fit it in. You don’t fit blogging in. You make it a priority and blogging will find its place. That simple.
In my class earlier this year I had my students write about how they fit blogging into their already busy life. There are 83 posts here at Bill Belew that mention daily blogging rhythm. I welcome you to take a look.
And if you don’t have time to read that much. Don’t worry. Instead … just write. Nothing beats hitting publish.
