Moving towards future plans

When starting something new, whilst it’s great to have a long term strategy, it is also important to focus on the present.

The last thing thing you want to do is get overwhelmed or distracted with where you want to be in a few years time.

The long term strategy gives you something to focus on and can help you figure out what you need to be doing day to day in order to achieve the bigger goal.

But what can end up happening is that you’re so focused on the little things you’re doing each day that you aren’t actually moving any closer to your goal.

And so it’s important to ensure that you regularly check in to keep things moving forward.

Posting daily isn’t a strategy

For some the idea of posting daily might be a strategy to make the numbers go up.

For me, posting daily isn’t a strategy it’s a personal practice. I like knowing that I can do it because 2 years ago I’d have declared it almost impossible for me.

I actually think that it’s easier to remain consistent with daily posts rather than picking 3 days a week.

But what also helps is I force myself to look at life differently as a means to have something to write about that is more than just ‘here’s what I did today’.

I’ve heard that having more content on your site can help boost your Google rankings and in most cases if you have more content you’ll also have more views.

I can post daily because I write short posts. However, if I was writing 800+ word essays daily postings wouldn’t be practical for me.

In terms of strategies I think a lot of it is down to why you blog and what you care about.

If you’re making a living from your site (or trying to) you’re much more likely to follow the rules.
