Have you ever had a blog post idea, worked on it for a time, then put it aside with the goal of finishing it later but never did?
If you answered, “Yes,” you are not alone (Other bloggers have done the same).
Today, I am going to provide you with some very good reasons to complete those unfinished drafts of yours as well as an added bonus — a plausible reason to not complete those drafts (So, read on, my friend).
They Are A Treasure Trove Of Ideas
When it comes to blogging, the more ideas you have, the better.
In fact, if you are looking for anything to blog about, it is not a terrible idea to look through your drafts.
You would be surprised at the number of gems that are waiting to be polished.
Therefore, make it a top priority of yours to polish them and publish them (It would leave you with a sense of accomplishment).
They Will Come In Handy The Day That You Are Faced With Writer’s Block
Writer’s block is a brief condition in which a writer is unable to complete a novel, writing for a play, or other pieces of writing.
A lot of the hobbyist bloggers on WordPress have complained about being plagued by writer’s block.
And how do I know this?
I know this because I came across their complaints (in the form of blog posts) via the WordPress Reader.
When you are experiencing writer’s block, I strongly suggest going through your drafts (You will find a potential article — one that you would be happy to finish and publish on your blog).
Finishing Drafts Is A Form Of Discipline
I am proud to admit, that I have developed the habit of completing my drafts.
You can be just as disciplined as I am where completing drafts is concerned. All you have to do is be fully determined to finish them whenever you start them (Simple. No rocket science involved).
Delete Those Drafts That You Have No Intention Of Finishing
I will be straightforward by saying to you, “Not all of the drafts in your dashboard area are worth finishing.”
Here are some examples of drafts that are okay for you to delete:
- An unfinished blog post that is filled with inaccurate information about a piece of technology.
- An unfinished blog post that displays hatred for someone.
- An unfinished blog post that is libellous in nature.
- An unfinished blog post that was supposed to be based on an illegal activity that you did while you were intoxicated on alcohol.
Hey, those types of blog posts should never be completed and published on your blog.
So, delete those drafts; especially those that would make you appear foolish and immature if you were to ever finish them and publish them.
If you are one of those bloggers with drafts that are proverbially collecting dust in their dashboard area, you should know the following things:
- Your drafts are a treasure trove of ideas.
- Your drafts will come in handy the day that you are faced with writer’s block.
- Finishing drafts are a form of discipline (It helps greatly in the area of being a highly disciplined blogger).
- You are better off deleting those drafts that you have no intention of finishing and that not all drafts are worth finishing.
