Have you ever been sitting around at 7:00 pm still wondering what you are going to post the next day? You look back in your drafts hoping for a blinding flash of inspiration only to be underwhelmed by what is still sitting in there. If this is all you have in your arsenal, you are also thinking it is a good thing they aren’t bullets you might need to go to battle with. Might as well just stay home, huh?
Option # 1
If you decide not to post because you are uninspired with your attempts for the day so far; will anybody notice? For some I would imagine yes; for us who hang in the lower echelons, probably not.
But guess what? It doesn’t really matter; I’m pretty sure the sun will still come up tomorrow.
However, because you have a set schedule do you put undue pressure on yourself because of that?
Option # 2
The good ol’ fallback, ‘the best of’ posts are always available. It would be pretty easy to come up with your 3 best friends; your 3 newest friends; the 3 best female bloggers, etc. The hardest thing with these are the 97 people who didn’t make the list that now think you are a piece of crap for not including them on your list too. Social can be fickle like that………just sayin’….
I do a pretty good job of never making these lists; like ever, so it doesn’t bother me.
However, is the ‘best of’ list just an easy way to replace your post? Or, is it a planned event for you and you have a set schedule to include them?
Option # 3
Yes, that only leaves the guest post option. This is actually a pretty good option. You typically don’t offend with this choice and in my case they usually do better than what I have to offer anyway. You just have to make sure you schedule them and not do too many.
But wait, option # 4
Just when you thought there were no more options and all had been covered, you just read my post which became option # 4. It ends up being a mish mash of ‘stuff’.
The truth be known I did work on 5 separate topics today but I just could not get them to go anywhere. It is pretty sad when this ends up being better than my other attempts.
But there is hope
Coming attractions: Ken Mueller from Inkling Media who is in a tribe with me is going to GP on Thursday. He is one who never has a problem posting. In fact, if an idea strikes him he might post twice in a day.
Please come back, you will not be disappointed.
Thanks for enduring and I hope you have a great week.
