I was watching a Periscope yesterday from Darren Rowse of Pro Blogger and he said a couple of things that were simple.
One thing was that if you want to be a blogger, you need to write every day. As the old adage goes “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
That’s a good one, but it isn’t the one that I was referring to. “Practice makes perfect.” This saying can be used on anything. Whether it be sports, rock climbing, or a new network marketing skill such as blogging.
The more you do it, the better you get at it.
The second thing that Darren said that struck me as something that not many aspiring bloggers might not think about is that you don’t have to publish everything you write.
Yes. You hear that right. Although it is good practice to write every day, not everything is going to make the grade.
If you don’t feel like something is good enough, you don’t have to put it in your blog. You can always come back later and make it better or chalk it up to a practice session.
They conjure up dreams of success beyond our wildest imagination or recall a past episode in their life that bring back emotions of utter disappointment.
In the quest to become the next network marketing sensation, we push ourselves and life pushes back.
Things come up. Things get in the way. Things that would be better if you had some kind of success.
Even if it was just a little bit, it would be enough to get you through those times when you want to pull your hair out. It is enough to quit dreaming those dreams and bring a bitter taste in your mouth when someone even hints about a network marketing opportunity.
I swear, it’s the republicans. Maybe the democrats were behind it. Those taxes and Jim who has way over 24 hours in a day to do this crazy messed up concept called network marketing. He has way more time than I do, get tax breaks and is in cahoots with the republicans. Could be the democrats!
Long story short. When it comes to blogging and Instagram, consistency is key. It doesn’t matter what you are selling. It doesn’t matter what you are trying to accomplish.
If you are going to blog, blogging more often gets results. Say, 4 or 5 times a week. If you use Instagram, posting at least a picture a day is minimum. It is a lot to take on on top of those things that happen that we refer to as life.
We must be accountable and it isn’t easy alone. It is way too easy to let things go. That is where a good accountability partner comes in. You are accountable to make find yourself accountable to someone if you feel you need one and you know whether you do or not.
