The online community grows at the speed of light, well…practically. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with how fast everything goes, but we don’t have to let it discourage us from moving forward. No one builds a fantastic blog (and readership) overnight, so don’t be too hard on yourselves. If the fast paced cyber community has you dazed from participating, then it might be a good idea to re-evaluate what you’re doing with your blog and establish a momentum to get you moving again.
Here are 3 simple tips to empower you, conquer the daze, & launch you into momentum.
Empower yourself to reach your own potential. Don’t read blogs that overwhelm you. Sure, it’s fun to read blogs to get more ideas for blogging, but if you’re overwhelmed then it might be time to stop and consider some of the things you’ve been learning before you move on. This will empower you to take hold of your knowledge and apply it.
Conquer that which seeks to overthrow you. Of all the ideas you’ve read about, list them in threes. This is how you conquer that sense of being overwhelmed. Just bite off what you can feasibly chew on. Check off each item from your list as you go along before you get to the next list of threes.
Launch yourself into the future! Don’t let mistakes bring you down. Anyone who has tried to succeed has fallen on their face a few times. It’s how we learn. But if we want to launch ourselves in a new direction then we have to let those things go so they don’t sink us. Don’t get trapped in the misery of ‘why in the world did I do that?’ Write down three ways you would have done it differently and file it away for future use. We can all learn from our mistakes and use that wisdom at some point in the future.
Sometimes all it takes is to slow down, limit ourselves to what we can do, and manage our time better.
