So now lets learn how you can develop a habit of creating one post every day?
I would like to explain it using Charles Duhigg post – How Habits Works? He explains in his post about how to create a habit.
Let me explain quickly about it – It consists of three things; Cue, routine, and reward.
Cue is specifically related to the time when you blog. It can be in the morning 8 AM, After the lunch or in the evening before dinner. You have to decide a specific time for the blogging and stick to it.
Unless you follow a cue in blogging, you cannot achieve a post every day. You need to find perfect timing in a day which you can follow every day.
The second part is routine. A routing is set of task you do ever time. For example, before starting a post; you open WordPress, start writing a post, then reply to others blog and comments and so on. You need to exactly find the task and perform it every day in a sequence.
This step is very important, as unless you follow a routine, you cannot write a post every day.
The last part is Reward. You need to reward yourself after every milestone. For example after 40% completion of your post, you can have a chocolate or 10 mins of email and Facebook.
If you work on the concept of reward, you can carry your routine for the longer time.
Do not Worry what other thinks :
You need to stop worrying what your readers think about your post. In the beginning, just go on with your post. Just concentrate on your writing.
If you think too much about the audience, you may not able to complete the target of writing a post every day.
Keep your reasons in front of you –
Why do you want to write one post every day? Everyone has their own reason. You want to be a full-time writer, you want to earn more money from the blog or you want to leave your current job and want to spend more time with your family.
Your reason could be anything but it should be a strong motivation to keep you engaged. Keep your goal and reason in front of you to keep you self-motivated.
Work in Agile –
Most of the software development currently happens in Agile model. It means you work on parallel releases. So in a blogging world, it means you need to work on the parallel post. While you are finishing with one post, you should have decided the name of the second post with 40 percent completion.
If you want to write a post every day, you need to work in parallel mode.
Do not Burn out –
This is the most important rule. You should work smarter and not harder to make sure you do not burn out yourself. Plan and execute your work accordingly and make sure you do not ruin your health.
Keep your notes handy –
When you are working on multiple posts, it is easy to loose ideas or important points. Make sure you keeps your notes handy and have your rough draft documented.
Here is a good post about how to save time while creating post:
Writing a blog post every day is a very challenging task for a blogger. You can achieve it by careful planning. It requires a disciplined behavior. It can also be a habit if practiced for longer.
