Last week, we talked about finding clues and reminders in your past content. Well, this week, I want to share three of my past posts that I think you’ll find helpful (even if they’re a refresher).
I Can’t Make You
The thing is, no matter how much you believe in your core message, you can’t make other people believe in it, too. You can’t replace the need for someone else to learn something in their own way. See how I figured this one out the hard way and how I suggest handling it.
What Can You Soften?
I crave routine because it frees up a lot of mental energy that I can use on other things. But of course, life just doesn’t always allow you to follow your routines. So how do you deal? You soften. I come back to the ideas in this post a lot.
Navigating Full Content Waters
Feel like it’s all been said or done before? Feel like your voice is just getting lost in a sea of many? Here are some ways that you, as both a writer and reader, can navigate the increasing amount of content out there.
I’m sharing these with you for three reasons. First, because I genuinely believe they are important. Second, because I love blogging, but I don’t love how things get buried as you layer on more content.
And third (in the interest of total transparency), because my family and client work have been my priority these past couple of weeks. My grandmother is sick, so I’m spending as much time as I can with her. This post is a great way to still share something important with you without having to create something totally new.
So enjoy these past posts, and feel free to use this technique in the future! If you’re having a tough week, or just feeling frustrated that so much good stuff is being buried, try pointing your readers to something you’ve written in the past. I bet they’ll find it more valuable than some half-baked idea you scramble to bring them (those never feel good, huh?)!
P.P.S. If you'd like to peek into my day-to-day working life, check out my posts today on We Are Jubilant's Instagram feed for Taylor's #CreativesWorthCelebrating series! There will be six total, and I'd love it if you followed along.
