When Blogging Gives You A Run For Your Money

When Blogging Gives You A Run For Your Money

Despite blogging being quite easy to do, there are times when it gives us a run for our money.

Yes, it happens to the best of us.

So, today, I am going to teach you how to come out triumphant in the end.

Eat The Frog

Now, before you take this out of context, I would like to say that this has nothing to do with eating an actual frog.

The term, “Eat the frog,” is often used by people who specialize in time management; it simply means, tackling the hardest task on your to-do list (This might be writing a blog post).

Yes, believe it or not, some people do view blogging as a cumbersome task; especially if they are not fond of writing or dislike challenges on the whole.

So, in this case, eating the frog would be working on your blog post first thing in the morning.

Eating the frog works because it prevents you from procrastinating.

Write An Extra Blog Post Whenever You Feel Inspired Or Have More Energy Than Average

Some of you are already doing this.

Instead of writing and publishing one blog post daily, you might find yourself writing and publishing three or more blog posts daily.

For the record, I am not in a position to discourage you from doing that because you are within your rights to do so.

However, it looks absolutely ridiculous when a blogger publishes numerous blog posts daily and then all of a sudden, they publish nothing for a few weeks.

Dear friend, it is all about consistency.

Besides, it is much harder to build an audience when you are blogging sporadically.

If you are one of those highly energetic bloggers ― someone who is capable of writing more than one blog post daily, I would like to recommend that you publish one and schedule the rest to be published at a date and time in the future (That way, you will always remain consistent and when you choose to take a short break from blogging, your viewing audience will always see a blog post from you).

Any WordPress blogger who is interested in learning how to schedule their blog posts should read, Schedule Posts & Pages by the WordPress.com Support Team.

Find Ways To Put Yourself In A Good Mood

Some people do not like to do anything when they are depressed (Those types of people can become productive by being in a good mood).

You can get yourself in a good mood by:

  • Watching a comedy.
  • Listening to your favourite genre of music.
  • Getting some physical exercise (Physical exercise is known to release endorphins; which is that feel-good hormone).
  • Playing with a pet (Animals are good at relieving our stress).

Dear friend, you have a much higher chance of creating a blog post when you are in a good mood.

Never Give Up

Giving up is easy (Anyone can do that).

What should you do whenever you feel like giving up on writing a blog post?

You should say to yourself, “I can do this,” and keep on writing.

Not giving up on writing a blog post is a wonderful habit to adopt ― one that actually works in your favour.

Hold Yourself Accountable

Yes, holding yourself accountable works.

You can hold yourself accountable by simply promising yourself not to slack off from blogging; which would mean, giving blogging your all.

Most of the top bloggers on the internet are known for holding themselves fully accountable.

Final Thoughts

Whenever you feel as though blogging is giving you a run for your money, you should do the following things:

  • Eat the frog.
  • Write an extra blog post whenever you feel inspired or have more energy than average.
  • Find ways to put yourself in a good mood.
  • Never give up.
  • Hold yourself accountable.

Dear friend, if you do all of those things that I mentioned, you will end up being triumphant in the end.

Thank you for reading.

  1. Love this, Renard! Eat the frog, indeed. I tend to use the imagery around “big rocks”. Tackle the big rocks first…but the frog? Much more interesting! Thanks for the morning nudge! πŸ˜‰

  2. I had come across the frog idea before and yes, it can be a useful tool for procrastinators as you said, Renard. The area I need to focus on is scheduling and consistency. When I’ve written something I’m just so excited that i want to share it immediately. I’m like an impatient, excited child 😁. But this, as you’ve pointed out can be counter-productive. I need to be more disciplined and patient, and schedule my blogs. I need to actually stick to my own schedule instead of sabotaging myself πŸ˜‚

    Thanks for the reminder, Renard 😁

  3. Inspiring blog post Renard. I have to say you do know how to assist a blogger who has lost faith in blogging. I have learnt one thing here and that is to “EAT THE FROG” , I have never tried this but I will starting from Today, blogging is not easy as a walk in the park especially if your blog is a source of income.

  4. It’s interesting, I β€œwrite” a lot of good posts while out walking. Unfortunately, when I get back, I can’t remember how it went. (I thought I should carry a voice recorder or put an app on my phone, but haven’t done so).

    Secondly, I think I write as well in a bad mood as I do in a good mood. But I delete the really bad mood ones because that’s not the kind of blog I want.

  5. I will not say I write a blog in advance, but my mind keeps on working on them.
    Like I’ve got some good ideas for future blogs and I’m working on them mentally, so that when I write them, I can get 2 mood, one the current mind that’s writing it and other the one that already had that idea. When I’m in very good mood, I make cover pics or infographics for my blogs.
    Right now, I’m working on a blog which I will publish next week. This Saturday some another blog will come. But then, I will try to write some extra blogs when I’m in a great mood. The Major problem with me is, my niche takes time. I need to read and research tons of stuff and then curate them accordingly. The humour, I add is 100% mine, but I need to think on how to blend that with the information.
    Ps- sir, you write exceptionally well. I feel satisfied after reading your work.

  6. I started blogging some few months ago after we’ve been asked to write a poem in one of our lectures. So I decided to publish the poem right after the lecture and I got massive views on that post. But I got to realize in the subsequent days that I have to work more on my blog if only I want to attain something at the end. So I began to “eat the frog” even though I didn’t know anything much about blogging then until I came across your posts which are endowed with wisdom and facts. Thank you very much Renard because your works seems to be source of wisdom now on blogging πŸ™
    Meeting you today through your blog is the best thing that has ever happened to me. πŸ™
