Blogging has been such a wonderful experience for me. I love that I am able to write about whatever I want, whenever I want. Unfortunately, there are times when I find it difficult to get the post started. It’s on those occasions that I follow these tips for starting a blog post:
- Create an outline – Remind you of high school and college?! Outlining your blog post is a wonderful way to organize your ideas and tape into your creativity.
- Just write – Start writing about anything. Writing about the dust in the corner or the dishes in the sink may help to get your creative juices flowing.
- Begin with the end in mind – If you’ve already thought of a great closing paragraph, go ahead and write it FIRST. There is no rule that says you can’t!
