1. The “I don’t have the time.”
No one does. Seth Godin doesn’t have time either, but he blogs consistently. The “I don’t have the time” should be “I won’t make the time.” Pull a Nike and just do it.
2. The “I don’t know what I’d say.”
You’re passionate about something. Food. Crayfish. Not talking. Talking. Chances are you do have something to say, you just need to find out what it is.
Say it in your voice. It’s completely different from someone else’s voice. Dare yourself to say it better.
4. The “it’s a waste of time.”
It’s been said that blogging is the new resume. Anyone doing creative work should have an online presence, and blogging is one of the best ways to accomplish that.
For creatives, it’s a waste of time to NOT blog.
5. The “I don’t know where to start.”
With so many options online, it can get confusing. I put some blogging resources on this page to help out.
6. The “blogging is for geeks.”
You might as well jump in. You’re already reading a blog which means you’ve got a geek-streak in you. Jump on in!
