Just do it!
Well, it’s been way, waaay to long since I wrote anything to this blog. But, I think it’s time to “just do it!”
For some bloggers, it seems lack of ideas is a big reason why their blogs aren’t kept up. However, for me, I don’t think lack of ideas is the problem. In fact, I think having too many ideas is the real problem!
A lot has been going on since I was posting regularly… New job, new apartment, an approaching wedding, more freelance work… all of these things have definitely spawned plenty of ideas. And of course they also consume much of my free time, which I would guess is the other top reason why bloggers stop posting regularly (not necessarily in that order).
I have lots of ideas – big ideas, small ideas, good ideas, bad ideas and probably a lot of ideas that may only interest me. So, I’ve decided that I have to take the advice of that famous shoemaker, and “Just Do It”. I’m going to try to start writing something, ANYthing on a more regular basis. Am I worried that I’ll be sacrificing “quality” for “quantity”… well, unfortunately yes. But I’m hoping that by getting some of these ideas down (even the bad ones), it will make room for more good ones (hopefully GREAT ones).
Back in January, I came across quite a few articles of people who planned to write a post a day. Will I be that aggressive? Probably not… mainly because my time is limited, but also because I do want to strive to provide useful information for designers and online marketers, and no turn this into a daily journal of my personal life. Am I ruling out “a post a day”? No. I’d love to do that (2 or 3 posts a day even), but I want to keep it relevant. However, with that thinking in mind, you might find a succession of shorter posts, possibly even just a sentence and a link to someone else’s ideas.
And yes, you may occasionally here me ramble off-topic, but I’ll try to stay on track.
As always, thanks for reading!
