A friend of mine recently started her own blog. She seemed a little shy talking about it. She’s better than I was. I was terrified when I started. She needn’t worry about keeping up with it. She is far more disciplined than I. I was part of a generation that poured their hearts into pretty diaries with tiny locks on them with charming little keys that wouldn’t have kept a smart dog out. I couldn’t even keep track of the key, much less actually writing in it. I was always living in the tomorrow. This had severe consequences when it came to completing school assignments. I fortunately abandoned this mind drift when I went to college.
Blogging requires discipline, timing,precision,and creativity.It goes way past keeping a journal. Bad day? Tough. Type the blog. Computer acting up? Borrow a laptop. Going on vacation? Prewrite and program auto-publish. Why? Because you have to have pride in your presentation of yourself and the product you promote. Write the blog.
