Consistency is key to writing a great blog

Since I’m starting over, I’ve decided that I need to be a lot more consistent with writing my blog posts. Everywhere I look, whenever people give advice about how to become a successful blogger, one of the first things they mention, besides having great content, is consistency. Apparently, consistency is key to writing a successful blog.

This article says that I can’t do it because I’m not willing to put in the work that it takes to be consistent. This article provides some great techniques to schedule writing time into my day.

It does take work to be consistent, and most times, it takes scheduling. When I think about the things that people are consistent about, a lot of them involve schedules. Eating. Going to work. Paying mortgages. Watching the big game. All of these things occur on a schedule.

I’ve been pretty good about using my calendar to schedule both my personal and professional lives. I even schedule laundry day. So, I’ve decided to try scheduling my writing time as well.

Side thought: Isn’t it interesting that the only tasks/events that make it onto my personal schedule are the ones that have been prioritized? Isn’t that exactly how we do work in an agile scrum environment?

We’ll see how it goes. 🙂
