No Cyber-Cred

Last Update: May 28, 2015

Eecstatic to finish the foundation-building phase I'm moving on to creating content. This is proving to be the hardest part for me. I'm not afraid of writing emails, letters, notes etc. but creating content for my site is another matter. Every time I sit down to start writing I stall. I realize there are dishes that need washing, plants need watering, the floors haven't been mopped in a week. Now, upon reflection, (another form of procrastination) I think it comes down to good old-fashioned stage-fright. I am afraid to put my self out there publicly! I have no cyber-creds! Of course, if I don't start writing I wont ever have it. But hey, I do I really have anything to say that hasn't already been said a thousand times before, and better, by others online. I'm not a true expert in anything. Does that make me a phony?What do you do to avoid or stop this type of mental block?

I think this is a great question and I'm in the same boat (being very new to this whole affiliate marketing thing) so thanks for asking it. You've had some great replies so far and I'm sure you'll get more. For me personally, it comes down to what's my "why?" Why am I taking steps to improve my financial situation? Why would I sacrifice my time to focus on learning a new skill like this? Why am I leaving my comfort zone? The answer for me is my family - that is my why - my three daughters. I was told a while back that if my "why" was big enough it would help to overcome the hesitancy, the self-doubt, the second guessing, the mental blocks, and just get down to getting it done. I believe my "why" is big enough and will help to motivate and push me through these same types of struggles.

I linked to an article on this topic in a blog post a while back. The first two points in the article address your exact concerns:

You have a unique perspective. (All your own). Yes, it may have been said but not the way you can say it.

When I get stuck, I drop back to the formula for writing an article.

Thanks Labman. Formulas are my friend. Though I use to rebel mightily against them I've since learned how wonderful they can be.
