If you’re pumping out blog posts nearly every day and not seeing results, I want to talk about a more manageable and productive writing process and publishing schedule that will still grow your blog and allow you the time to create work that you’re proud of.
Part of developing a good brand is to stay consistent with your style. Think about it: if McDonald’s all of a sudden changed their colors to purple and blue on the sign out front but the inside of the restaurant was still red and yellow, we’d be a little confused.
So, we’re writers, we aren’t meant for website design, right? WRONG. We can totally rock our own website when building our online portfolio and I will show you how!
We ALL have moments when we feel like we’re not good enough. Low self confidence, imposter syndrome, self doubt…it can all creep inside of our minds at some point. Well, I am here to tell you that you ARE good enough if you keep working at your craft and you enjoy writing.
You write a paragraph and read it twice to make edits before moving on. You write another couple lines and stop to edit. Because it has to be perfect. After another couple of lines, you give up. It will never sound good enough. You walk away.
What’s the “About” section on LinkedIn all about anyway? Many professionals don’t take it seriously enough, but it can serve as a key differentiator from your competition if you do it right. It’s a small but powerful piece of your profile that could turn the heads of potential clients or employers.
You want to write and you want to make some money, so how is it all possible?
You’ve finally created your blog, but now all that’s missing are…the blog posts. So what do you write about? You may have a bunch of interests and don’t know what to choose. You always hear people say to pick one niche to write about and stick to it, but how do you decide what to pick?
For writers, this statement is wrong: It’s hard to start out because you need experience to gain experience but you don’t have experience to prove you’re qualified for your first job or client.
