Write every day

Sometimes I will write a post on here that gets a good bit of traction via Facebook shares, Twitter, or old fashioned email forwarding, and other times a post won’t resonate as all.

I’ve also stopped predicting what will resonate and what won’t. There will be days when I’m excited to press the publish button and share a message, but it lands with a plop and quietly disappears.

I have also noticed that people dig through my archives, and sometimes a post has a second life.

The real visitor juice kicks in when the search engines index a post. It’s like an evergreen flow of free traffic to my site via Google and Baidu.

On some days when I’m swamped, I might release a photo or a small quote I’ve found; on other days, I can dig deep and write about something that’s been percolating.

I write about things I know about.

The best posts are authentic, from the heart and about something I’ve experienced first hand,

Writing every day builds the muscle. Start now.

One thought on “Write every day

  1. I hope you keep on writing. I have had fun experimenting with my voice on blog posts and using tags on Reader to chat with other writers. Best wishes.
