When it Comes to Blogging, JUST DO IT!

It might sound like a Nike commercial but she’s right and she has the perspective. This is a reblog that I’m posting because I think it’s worthy of your attention. Please click through to leave comments on Victoria’s blog.

I have read a few posts on AR lately about getting in there and just doing it whether you are an expert blogger or not and one rather snobbish post that begged you not to just do it. Well, here is MY spin on the subject.

No other person can get your message across better than you can.  However, the way you present your message and the way you optimize it for the search engines may need some improvement which you can get with just a few SEO blog coaching sessions. It really doesn’t take much.

I admit that I have been a professional blogger for quite some time. But I will also be the first to admit that I was not very good at it when I first started out. As a matter of fact, I stunk to the high heavens even though I have a journalism background and kept personal diaries since the age of 10.

My first professional blogging gig was with New Homes Realty where I actually got paid for blogging. Of course, I had been writing page content for my own business ventures for some time. We dabbled in a wide variety of industries so I was not new to Internet writing and business promotion by a long shot.

But, when I first starting for New homes, an actual “paid gig,” it was different. First of all, I worked among seasoned staff writers with extensive professional journalism backgrounds. One had been with the St Pete Times for years and the other was a well established independent writer in her own right. Believe me, scrutinizing eyes were upon me.

My first posts reeked of my amature status as I had not truly found my voice. But as I got my chops down and found my groove, I was in there with the best of them. And believe me, this did not happen over night. You have to just write, because your creative voice morphs out of your own writing.  Start wherever you are at and that place is in the here and now!

There is no other way around it. For someone to say, don’t blog because you are not good enough is ridiculous and very bad advice.  You get where you need to be in the process of writing a lot – blog after blog after blog after blog.

And guess what, the Internet happenes to VERY forgiving because you can go back and update previously written posts that may not represent your best work and shoot them back out again. Don’t ever feel threatened by others saying you shouldn’t blog if you don’t blog like a pro. Put your best foot out there. Be yourself and let your personality shine through. You will only get better and that can only happen with nonstop continuous blogging!

Rock on bloggers, rock on!
