Do you have a blogging notebook?
No? Well read on …
Despite how easy some bloggers make it look, blogging is difficult. Sometimes the words flow… and sometimes they don’t. When they don’t, it’s easy to fall behind and neglect your blog altogether. Before you know it, days, weeks, months (sometimes years) have gone by, and your blog remains stagnant.
Which means, you’ve stopped generating new traffic to your website. Reducing the number of visitors, which in turn, reduces the number of new enquiries you’re receiving.
A blogging notebook can help change all that.
So here are three great reasons to have one on the go.
1. It’s the perfect place to jot down every idea that pops into your head
It could be a single word, or a long, scribbled paragraph that eventually forms the opening to your next post.
Without a notebook in your bag or back pocket, that spark of an idea may just vanish into thin air by the time you’re sitting in front of your computer ready to type.
Leaving your holiday let blog article-less once again.
2. When you’re stuck for ideas for a blog post, your notebook will come to the rescue
By getting into the habit of jotting down ideas when they come to you, you’ll always have a fresh stock of topics to dive into.
Next time you need inspiration for an article, grab your notebook to see what scribbles you could gather into a valuable piece.
3. It helps you keep track of your blog and gives you accountability
Once you start using your notebook, you’ll likely have sections in there for each topic on your blog (if you don’t, you should). For example, you might include a section for attractions; events; holiday rental news; and so on.
If you notice you’ve lots of ideas in one section and next to nothing in another, you’ll know where to focus your attention to build that content up.
Just like everything in life, taking notes helps us stay on track and make sure things get done.
Having a dedicated notebook to help gather your thoughts, jot down ideas, and ensure there’s a balance of topics being created, is such a simple idea that you’d be silly not to give it a try.
