A blog remains an essential requirement of life with the Internet in 2017. It is neither a lost art nor spurious. If you are serious about your name on the Internet, you need to be blogging.
It is not without a sense of urgency that we experience our lives. The long and short of the problem is that with so many demands on our time, it is urgent that we get to the belly of the beast and jot those “X’s” onto our to-do lists. With Christmas approaching this time of year, we have even less time on our hands to devote to pastimes such as blogging.
When I think of everything in life that demands our attention, and I am not a parent, nor even really a career man, the no. 1 thing I think of is the rush to post content on social media. That being said, and I’m sure you’re doing a good job of this already if you’re on the Internet, it may help to reflect that writing content is all about capturing interest.
Content needs to provoke interest and to continue to do so (being “evergreen”), at a time when there is constantly all the more competition against which you need to pit yourself (it’s cutthroat). You have what is literally a finite amount of time available if you are handling the reins of your social media. Therefore it is with some urgency that you need to keep your content coming.
You are almost certainly on social media already if you are reading WordPress blogs. It is up to you to conduct yourself with excellence. When I blog, I draw on the WordPress daily prompts for inspiration, and I want to present a relative amount of truth and dedication to the hobby so that I am not merely spinning my wheels.
If you want to “like” this post and/or “follow” the blog, by all means, of course, you are welcome to do so. You can leave me a comment as well. Thanks for reading, and good luck with your content!
