Two nights ago I was in bed reading & decided to take a Facebook break ( I keep these short, like 5 minutes because I don’t want to sit on social media for 3 hours ). AND THE MOST AMAZING ARTICLE I HAVE EVER READ POPPED UP ON MY FEED. It was titled, The Most Important Question of Your Life. HMMMMmmmmmmm. Firstly, how many articles have you seen on FB like this? 4357092864? A trillion? Way too many? Telling you to “wake up earlier, how to be more productive, how to have more willpower, etcetera.” I get it, me too. But this article was VERY, very different. Maybe you’ll entirely disagree with me…but maybe you won’t. The point is, this article was TOO good to NOT share. It really did contain one of the most important questions.
I've been spending the past week all bed rested and still tackling my deadlines for my assignments at university. ('cuz even medical problems don't stop university deadlines ugh) Anyway, now I'm here, rested and ready to welcome thousands of you and possibly help/guide/advice you with writing. (that part of blogging, eh?) So, today’s blog post was inspired by this particular question among the hundreds of questions asked before this... "Whenever I sit down to write content, I just can’t do it. Nothing comes to me and I don’t feel in flow. It’s holding me back from sending out emails or social media, to even write content on my blog, how do I fix it?"
This is to all my hustlers (or side-hustlers who are working on their business + job), working like crazy all week, as a reminder to sit back and take a break. As the good old saying - HEALTH IS WEALTH.
You are what you say you are. Saying, “I’m a negative person who can never accomplish anything” is a reinforcing trap. Saying this sort of thing will result in you being a negative person who will never accomplish anything. Likewise, telling yourself, “I’m a positive person who can accomplish anything” will lead to accomplishments beyond your wildest dreams.
Now, I agree, I myself have a lot of work to do with my blog. But I can be sure with my social media strategies. As you read through the entire post, you'll find new, old as well as traditional methods of using social media to your benefit. Your blog deserves to reach out to the world. And, your voice needs to be heard. I swear by these tips and when I first started blogging, I have used them myself. Some of these tips are tricky, which is why I still have to work on them (rather, I've only grown my Instagram till now), but I promise you, you and your blog (or a startup even) will definitely benefit after applying these strategies daily. I know, plenty of bloggers think that social media is the easiest way to gain traffic for their blogs. The reality, however, is far from that. Yes, it's true that social media is a very effective way to promote your blog, but getting results isn’t exactly that easy. Many bloggers can attest to this. This is why some have toned down their efforts on social media. So, has looking into the so-called "loss and tiredness" stopped you from using at least one social network site to your benefit? Has this discouraged you from looking into social media marketing? If it has, I’d like to tell you that it shouldn’t.
