My most recent post at The Student Branding Blog is entitled Blogging? Be Encouraged. You might have noticed that I have hit a “drought” in my blogging here. There was a period of time when I blogged very regularly – a few months I blogged daily. I had the time, the motivation, and the material so it was not as much effort as it might have appeared to be. For the last two months I have been lacking one or all of those things and my productivity has dropped off substantially.
But I am not discouraged. Blogging is a process, and in my experience, all processes exhibit variation and cycles. I was not sure when this drought would hit, but I was pretty sure it was just a matter of time. I’m also very sure that it’s only a matter of time before I return to a more productive cycle.
Much to my surprise, blogging has been one of the best things I’ve done for both my professional and personal life in the last decade. I firmly believe that everyone can benefit by blogging. Once you start blogging, you too will experience cycles in your productivity, but the only way to lose is to quit.
I for one have no intention of quitting. So if you are a blogger – be encouraged! If you are not yet a blogger, what are you waiting for?
