This post will be an ongoing reflective post on how to Design a Successful Blog.
Day 1: What I have learned from previous efforts
I have started blogging several times over my career never to keep at it long enough to build it as a habit. So, why is this time different…well it’s not unless I do something different. In the past, I relied on the newness of a blog to be a temporal reminder. But, as the real world filled my short-term memory the blog was quickly forgotten.
To self-proof this effort I am going to have to create a system of reminders and priority. Historically, alarms or blocked time on my calendar alone are not enough. When that dedicated time block came I failed to prioritize it over everything else – business, personal and family.
