The hardest Words We Will Ever Write.
The hardest words that you will ever write are the first fifty characters. In terms of your online blogging career, it may only be a couple of sentences. For many, I suspect they are the first words that have been written since your school days and it could be your first life experience of writing because you want too.
Remember that writing for profit can also be fun.
But if you come back tomorrow and write some more and write and write and write, you will get progressively better, that is just the natural way things go, it is a reflection of everything in life.
The thing about WA is that we are here to learn how to do this online stuff so no one expects brilliance straight out of the starting gate. Words build into sentences and sentences build into paragraphs and they, in turn, build into posts and posts create something special, that ability to connect with an audience and so it goes.
The thing that we need to appreciate and grasp is that our words speak for us in our absence and that is a selling proposition, it may take time but it does happen, the only way that it will not happen, is if we give up.
Create that writing mindset, and your words will speak for you 24/7/365, I don't know of many other businesses that will allow you to do this.
Create a body of content and you will have many opportunities for those words to express your message. That is a simple but yet powerful formula.
Starting out when no one knows you and you are getting no engagement, the hardest thing to do is to keep producing content, at this stage to keep writing is one of the biggest of many hurdles that we need to overcome.
If we stick to it, we will start to get engagement but more importantly we will start to feel confident in our ability to express our thoughts and insights.
That is priceless on both counts.
Just some reflections
Keep writing even if nobody turns up to the show.
