I am not an SEO expert or seasoned content creator but after working for several years in education, I am fairly good in scheduling, prioritising and streamlining.
This is how I approach my posts and it may work for you as well.
I create a very short post just to test the water. Usually it is based on something I am working on or dealing with.
I wait for the response from social media and ask myself: is there any traction, any interest and from whom, what are the questions asked
I decide if I should expand bit more, should I shift the focus a bit or should I drop it altogether
There is one disadvantage – you do have to tweak your tags and keywords as your post is evolving. So it is not for everyone. I think solo businesses or part-time bloggers might save some time and effort by doing this. The big advantage of this is that you can create a highly relevant super niched content for your target audience.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know by now that I love making lists. Yes, I like to be super organised.
But there is also another reason for this. I am constantly late! I have trouble to keep up with the deadlines, tasks and chores! And I have trouble with ticking off all my points on the agenda. So I have decided to take a closer look at the reasons behind it. And surprise surprise, I did come with a brand new list of my reasons.
Please don’t laugh! Actually, I am laughing at myself here but I must say that my list was rather revealing. And here it is.
I make my to do lists too long
I am a perfectionist
I think I have to control everything
I don’t really want to do the things, on the list
I am not honest with myself
I don’t believe I can do it
I don’t believe I can complete it
I am trying to multitask too often
I get distracted by little things
If I don’t do many things at once I feel lazy and unproductive
So, have there been any similar reasons behind your procrastination? Do let me know. And in the meantime, take care dear friends 🙂
