You have an idea for a blog post. Not just any blog post, this is one that will really mean something to lots of people. They will send others to read it. They will join in with comments and tweet that post to the world and beyond.
So you have to get it right. And after several weeks and many hours of tweaking and rewriting, you feel it is finally good enough to publish.
And you watch the stats. You tweet and share and ask for ReTweets, and share and… 29 people read it. All that effort!
So… Sometimes, in fact most of the time, just write it and post it in one fell swoop. Just as I am making myself do with this one. Having taken a very long time (no, I will not say how long, it is too embarrassing) to write what I think is a great topic and that I have taken a lot of care in writing in order not to be misunderstood (ha – that’s likely to happen anyway, however carefully you word even any blog with slightest contention about it) – for this post I am not going to stop until it is done! And how on earth can I show you and tempt you and tell you to Just DO It when I’m not just doing it myself.
One of the best people I know to JDI is Sarah Arrow, with whom we’ve worked – she is the polar opposite of me I think and what that woman can get done in an hour it takes me a week to allow into the blogosphere. Enough – I have learned well and know that yes, I will get it wrong sometimes, but actually I do know what I’m on about so will just do it!
So watch this space as we just do the Just Do It Blogging course from 1st July Oh yes… After I’ve found an image for this post and updated everything and installed the forum and and and
