I had a revelation this morning while listening to the 43 Folders, Merlin Mann, interview podcast of Linchpin author, Seth Godin. As expected, this was a great podcast from two of the most well respected people.
The revelation, I haven't written a new blog post for a while due to my "resistance" to the time and effort it takes.
In the past, it took me a while to get a blog out. I'd easily come up with concepts, write a draft, then take time to proof, then publish. It all sounds simple, yet it took me over an hour usually for a very short simple post. The hour per post was my resistance.
So, how am I revamping my blog style? I'm going to take out the step that was causing me so much resistance and making me not enjoy blogging. Proofing. I'm going to write and let it fly. Funny thing is, I've always hated proofing. Dating back to elementary school, I hardly ever read over my work before submitting. Maybe that is why my grades in English classes were never stellar.
So, moving forward, I will try to keep up with writing posts quickly so I can work through my list of blog post ideas. Hope you enjoy them.
