For quite a long time now I’ve been thinking of writing daily.
But I found many reasons to avoid it. Here are a few that come to mind:
- My subscribers won’t want to hear from me every single day
- I won’t be able to create content that’s compelling and meaningful
- Authoritative blog posts are at least 2000 words long (anything less is unprofessional)
- If I email my subscribers with content every day they’ll unsubscribe
I’ve been reading Seth Godin’s daily emails for years now and his content’s almost always been thought-provoking.
Today Seth shared a blog post that really hit home. He talked about the magic of producing daily content and suggested giving it a try for three or four months.
On the one hand, the post inspired me to cultivate a daily writing habit, but on the other hand, it raised doubts around my ability to produce valuable and meaningful content every single day.
I sent Seth an email expressing these sentiments, and Seth’s response was prompt, concise and direct.
Essentially he said my doubts were unhelpful. His advice was: “Just begin”.
So here we are.
I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
Talk to you tomorrow 🙂
