What to say?

Hey. Do you think it’s possible for someone to have something to say every day?

Do you say something every day?

Do you talk to at least one person every day? (Even if that person is yourself?)

Then you’re probably thinking and processing information every day.

Granted, posting a blog is like talking to yourself, because no one is there… yet. And you have no idea if anyone will even see it. So yeah, it’s weird.

But it’s a recording of your thoughts.

And you think every day. I promise.

Me too.

(I didn’t even know what I was going to say in here, but when I started writing, it got me thinking. Writing can do that. Try it out.)

How to be prolific

It’s true. You can have a blog and write every day and no one will see it.

You actually have to tell people about it. You have to advertise. But only if you want people to see it.

I’m not sure I’m there yet.

I do like people seeing my stuff and commenting and me being able to interact with them, but you know what it is? I don’t think this is good enough.

And that’s the Resistance talking.

This is just my scratch pad, my practice space. I’m not trying to be super wise, solve someone’s problem, be entertaining or interesting. I’m just writing, or talking something. Anything. Just so I can practice doing it every day.

Maybe someone will see it. Or maybe I’ll be brave enough to tell someone about it. Or maybe once I get the every day habit down, I’ll start a different one.

Or a bunch of them.

I could literally have 7 different blogs where I post once a week on each one by writing every day.

That actually sounds fun.

That would be being prolific.

But it would need to be seven different topics.

Well, watch out.

Day 2

Yeah, you know what’s going on here.

Sure, it’s another New Year’s Resolution to put up a post every day,  but sometimes you just have to use what ever mechanism works.   And right now, at this moment, staying on a blog post roll for at least 2 days in a row is getting me back into the habit.   So let me be a little pedestrian for a moment.

I’m not even promising that I’m going to keep this up indefinitely, which I know is an easy cop out, but I’m doing it today.  And for today, it’s working.

I always wonder how some of those guys can keep up the great content every single day, but I suppose they worked at it for a while, until it became something that they just do, and not a burden or chore.

The real effort, I think, is not just writing every day, but looking for content every day.  And that content must be connected to your personal branding – what do you want to be known for?  Every post counts a little something.

Well, I haven’t quite figured that out yet, ‘my brand’, although I am being known for something, even if it is not intentional.  We all are.  Our entire footprint on the web or in person paints a picture of what we are about, whether we like it or not.

What kind of picture are you painting?

The Long Blog Tail

I know for a fact that there are a lot of talented musicians in the world that you have never heard of.

Like this guy for example.

By the same token, there are a lot of good blogs out there that some people may never see (like this one. The one you’re reading.)

So why not share a little and spread the knowledge of something good.

Here’s a good obscure blog that I found.  He has a great post with an interesting analogy for today’s financial situation.

(Okay, so he happens to be a friend at work.)

(Okay, so the musician happens to be my brother.)

How else would I find these things?

Oh yea, I suppose I could surf the net too.  But it doesn’t hurt to start with your world.
