Blogging can be challenging, and it can be difficult to stay motivated when you are trying to balance your home life and your business.
Creating and maintaining your blog can be time consuming, and it's hard to stay motivated when you are felling stressed about the upkeep of your blog.
There are a few simple ways to stay motivated through your blogging process and have the time you need for your family and business.
Plan ahead - Create a blogging calendar to keep track of your ideas. Having a list of ideas ready makes blogging easier. (More ideas to plan for your blog tomorrow 5/23)
Write short posts - They say you only get 1 minute to attract someones attention and if it takes more then 3 minutes to read a post they will move on. Sometimes a posts with few words or just photos is all you need.
Mix it up - Plan a variety of topics. Keep your readers coming back with something new each week.
Create regular features - Having regular features makes it easier to schedule your posts. I have two regular features Motivation Monday and Be Inspired making my blog planning easier.
Pre-publish - Write your posts a few at a time, and schedule them to post throughout the week. I usually write posts on Sunday for the entire week, then I don't have to worry about my blog for week.
It's easy to stay motivated about your blog when you don't have to worry about what you are going to post.
