This Simple Idea Will Help You Keep Your Blog Active
While fruitful, maintaining a blog is hard work and can be time-consuming. To make it easier, I've begun testing the idea of doing "quickbits" which are short direct and helpful blog posts. This idea helps us quickly create content for our blogs.
In conversing with others, we tend to have insights, ideas, and epiphanies. The next time this happens, capture the insight and spend 5-10 minutes writing it into a short simple blog post. The difficulty of writing is usually thinking and challenging the insight. Since we're doing this in our conversation, the hard part is done. Let's harvest our fruit by writing and sharing it.
This blog post is an example of this idea in action and came from a discussion with my friend Jim Karwisch (Applied Improv Strategist)
. In fact, this idea is so quick, I was able to rewrite it after I accidentally deleted my first draft.
