For a very long time, I’ve had a fear of saying what I really want, what I really do – I’ve been very private about it.
Part of this is fear of criticism because I’ve been a massive people pleaser.
Most of it is actually fear of success because we love our excuses, right!
Well, wrong! – Now! For me at least.
I blog every single day. Every day! That makes me a blogger and I know it has made me a better person.

I’ve been blogging on my personal site for nearly two and a half years and have written almost 160,000 words! Imagine what you could turn your writing skill towards! A book, audio courses, public speeches. Imagine how you could…….
Repurpose Your Blogging Content!
Create Twitter Threads with valuable information and calls to action for your audience.
Use the blog post as a Copy-And-Paste jobby for Facebook or LinkedIn.
Send excerpts of your blog as e-mail copy to your list.
Are you getting the idea?
On Mondays I write longer posts but in as little as five or ten minutes, you can have valuable advise and wisdom to share with people AND you can use it as a great, fun and cathartic way to build your business.
What do you most enjoy about your blogging practice? And, if you’re not already, what advantages could you see for yourself in getting going? Let me know in the comments and have a great week!!!
