Just start a dang blog already

I’m talking to you, Mr. or Mrs. Person who keeps saying “I should really start a blog.” Or maybe it’s more like “I should really post to my poor, lonely blog.”

Yes, you should. I already wrote my manifesto on why, so I won’t repeat it here. But you should. So either do it or stop talking about it.

Stop waiting for motivation, and use some discipline. Make writing a part of your daily routine.

For me, when I sit down at my desk in the morning I write a quick blog post. It’s how I ramp up for the day. Maybe that works for you too, and maybe not. But either way, work it into your routine somewhere or it won’t become a habit.

Do it, right now. Schedule it on your calendar. Make a plan. Tell yourself it’s just an experiment, so it’s not scary or permanent.

Maybe you’ll be glad you did. I know I am!
