Hey it’s jim.
Yes, it’s a fantabulous day. Did mucho work today, and I’m feeling farkin great.
You might have noticed these posts are reaching you a little later/earlier than you were used to. Why?
Because when I used to write them first thing in the morning, I’d sit on my lazy ass and call it a day.
Not ashamed to say this, writing is therapeutic for me and I enjoy the heck out of it.
But that’s not the case for most people. Like the other day, I was giving a consultation to a guy who wanted to become a blogger.
By definition, a blogger must BLOG!
Except, this nice chap, he tried every loophole he could to get out of writing.
“Can’t I just reblog?”
“Can’t I just summarise someone else’s content?”
“Can’t I just buy articles?”
No. No. No. Was my predictable always response.
Blogging itself isn’t hard.
How hard is talking? We all do it.
When you have an interesting topic to begin with, you can talk for hours.
Here’s the secret to being able to write regularly (and sell)…
Start an idea bank. Simple.
I keep mine on the computer…but maybe your phone is a good place to store yours or on a notepad if you’re a little old fashioned.
There’s inspiration ALL AROUND YOU, you come across it every day. But since you never take a note of your good conversation ideas, when you sit at a blank New Post on WordPress, the ideas refuse to flow. It becomes a strain to write. And it takes forever.
Not with an idea bank!…the hard work of getting blogging ideas is taken care of ahead of time.
Just like telling jokes…you’ve probably heard TONS of funny jokes which had you in tears over the course of your life. But most people, when they come to tell jokes, they can only remember one or two.
The other day I was sitting with my mother’s brother. He told me about a doctor friend of his he meets with once a month.
He said this guy keeps a notepad in his pocket…and on it he has a list of one or two trigger-words per line that remind him of good jokes he heard throughout the month.
He keeps this updated so that when he meets with his surgeon friends, for TWO HOURS STRAIGHT, the guy rattles off one joke after the other. Everyone laughs. He’s a star.
Doesn’t take much to be entertaining…just keep an idea bank.
