From the outside, blogging can sometimes appear to be whimsical. A blogger is a creative, putting all their heart and soul into content to create beautiful images and a website.
What isn’t seen, is those parts of blogging that you just can’t be arsed to do. Tasks that you dread, a do-to list that you just want to hide away and forget about.
Even the most passionate blogger has things about blogging that they are not a fan of. Here are mine.
I hate scheduling Tweets os much that I just pay for an app to do it for me. YOLO?
Another mundane task that I hate doing. While it is made easier by Tailwind and tribes, it’s still one of those tasks I have to force myself to do. The only saving grace is that it’s a bit of a mindless task so I often do it if I’m struggling to focus.
I go in phases of being really good at this, but when I get behind, I get too overwhelmed to get back on track. Tracking invoices makes things so much easier though so I kick myself for not being consistent with it!
I was into the habit of doing this regularly, making around 5 different images for each blog post and scheduling it. Now it’s something I wish I still did, I spend a lot of time thinking about it but not actually doing it!
I’m good at spotting decent emails and crap ones and often leave the crap ones unread for weeks. It takes a great amount of mental effort for me to go through all those mailing lists I didn’t sing up for without wanting to stab someone. I gotta wait to be in the right headspace for that.
What do you wish you were better at?
