The following nine lessons will get you through the sometimes grueling process of blogging.
If you’ve never run a marathon, you may think the actual running part is what’s difficult. It is. But just getting to the start line is difficult too. And that’s not a metaphor.
Lesson 1: Schedule a time in your calendar to write
Lesson 2: Get a blogging buddy
Lesson 3: Fuel your body
And away we go
Lesson 4: Be specific about your goals
Lesson 5: Be flexible
The lost miles
A time comes in every marathon when the energy and excitement of the beginning ends, but the finish line is nowhere in sight. I call these the lost miles.
Lesson 6: Think about how you’ll feel if you stop
Lesson 7: Success looks different for every runner and blogger
Lesson 8: Compete with yourself
Lesson 9: Encourage your fellow bloggers just like a spectator cheers for a marathoner
The Finish Line
