Well, I have had this blog for a number of years now. And considering how much work has gone into it, I am happy with the results. But I know that it can be far more successful than it has been. I know that probably the biggest thing holding it back is my own level of consistency (or lack thereof).
So, I will commit to being more consistent in my focus on this project. They say it takes 28 days (or 30, depending on who you talk to) to develop a new habit. So for the next 28 days, I will post every day. And I won’t post worthless information just for the sake of posting. My biggest challenge when posting has been weeding through the stack of possibilities, then losing focus and I end up not posting anything.
I have wanted to redesign the site, so I’ll try to do that but only in so far as it doesn’t interfere with posting consistent relevant content.
This would be a good time to plug Darren Rowse. If you don’t have his 31 Days to Build a Better Blog, then you need to get it. I got it, even after years of blogging and found a lot of useful information.
Incidentally, Darren has a new ebook out, ProBlogger’s Guide to Your First Week of Blogging. I don’t have it (yet) and I don’t usually make recommendations on products that I have not personally reviewed, but if his previous material is any indication of the quality of content, I would say that it’s worth picking up a copy.
[Update: I have purchased a copy of ProBlogger’s Guide to Your First Week of Blogging and am working on a review.]
