Struggling to blog consistently? Here are some tips that'll help you get motivated, focused, and prepared to blog every day.
Lynnette Phillips's insight:

You're kidding, a blog post everyday?! Wouldn't it be great to have them waiting in line to be published? Well, try these suggestions. Music helps me so much and I definitely don't try to get it all done at once, never could. But insisting on a schedule when everyone has to leave me alone helps immensely (it's surprising how often emergencies  come up though [OK, they're more like mini disasters]).

15 Lessons From 1,500 Blog Posts | I'm Just Sharing

15 Lessons From 1,500 Blog Posts | I'm Just Sharing | The Joys of Blogging | Scoop.it
This is post #1,500 for I'm Just Sharing and it's been quite an interesting ride. I started this blog in December 2007 with an idea that maybe I could make some money blogging. My other intention was to be able to write whatever I wanted to write, and to that end I was in immediate conflict. You see, though I didn't necessarily see it as blogging, I started chronicling parts of my life and thoughts back in 1995 on a site called My Dear Diary. It allowed you to be anonymous and, well, it was a diary. It was a diary that could be read by others if they so chose, and of course you could read other people's diaries as well. It allowed for a stream of consciousness that I had started back in college when I used to buy all these spiral notebooks to chronicle what was going on in my life; strange stuff… What is it with some people that they like to write down what they're thinking and what's going on?

Ileane Smith's curator insight, March 12, 1:32 PM

My Comment went into moderation but I'm sure it will be live soon:

Hi Mitch,

One thing is for sure, you certainly have a lot to say!

But somehow we never get bored listening to you. :) Thanks so much for including in the list of thank yous. That's a real honor.

I think my favorite point was #14 when you said "stuck to my principles". That's one of the things I count on when I think about you and your blogs and videos. I know that you won't be a sell-out and in the long run that is extremely important. Even if you change your mind about something there's always a compelling reason that you manage to make others see your point (even if they don't agree).

I asked around about Dennis a few months back and I agree that he was a great guy who always had a unique perspective and left some awesome comments.

Congrats on 1500 and I'm looking forward to what comes next.
