Make blogging easier
Blogging can be hard. Blogging can be easy. Here are my mental rules for making it easier:
Find a workflow that you enjoy
I didn’t enjoy Wordpress.com. It did everything in its power to foil me at every turn. Now that I can write posts in Notepad++, my favourite editor ever, and with CommonMark, it’s just a joy! I wanna write about every tiny little thing!
No post is too short
Go easy on yourself. If a blog post has to be a masterpiece, you won’t ever post one.
Don’t worry about readership
Just forget ‘em. Blog for you. Blog as an extension of your brain. (Read the comments on that page)
Post when you write
Don’t worry about making two posts on the same day. Don’t queue ‘em up, just post! This bullet point could equally be called “Don’t worry about your metrics”.
Blog when you solve a problem
Software developers, handimen, experts - this one’s for you.
They’re easy to turn into a blog later. OneNote. Evernote.
That’s the end! I might extend this post at a later date :)
