Perhaps it's a flashback to the old days in my previous life of print publications. When I first started that career, Tuesday was the big day, often creeping late into the night, for a Thursday publication day. It was a routine: paste up on Tuesday, printing and mailing on Wednesday, delivery on Thursday.
Years later, we were under a different deadline, because of scheduled press times. Tuesday was still our big day, but the layouts needed to be out the door by 4 pm for a journey to the pressroom an hour away.
I always said I work best with my head in a vise, but that usually ends poorly with mistakes that tic me off.
What I've learned about writing a blog is this:
- You gotta enjoy writing, in the style of your blog. Creative, Editorial or Technical styles take your pick. You still need to enjoy what you're doing.
- You need to possess the ability to write about anything. Thankfully the words often just flow off my fingertips.
- You should know a little bit about everything. Yes, being a know-it-all such as myself will make your blog much more successful.
- Have the ability to deal with a deadline, whether real or self induced.
What have I learned about blogging? It's a lot of work, but a lot of fun!
