How to blog regularly

Blogging is a learning process. You learn to organize thoughts. You learn to overcome the fear of publishing those thoughts. This helps you to become better at communication, just like Journalling.

I used to do a terrible job of regularly updating this site until I discovered scheduling. Scheduling is an amazing strategy, it is also my secret weapon against the fear of publishing.

I often get so nervous before I publish that I have often stopped short of hitting publish. What will people think, right? Well, with scheduling, I push that fear out and away, forward, somewhere in the future. There it looks so harmless. Then, one day, I see the post popping up on my feeds, by which time it is too late to cancel, so I just go with it.

I love this feature, as I’m not always inspired, but sometimes I get 4 to 5 ideas in one go. Then I can either draft them or start writing them to schedule them.

1 Post a week. That’s all only release one, even if you have ten. Until you master regular writing discipline. 1 per week will help you maintain a good cadence and also improve your writing skills.
