It’s a rather simple question to ask: Do you keep a blogging journal?
Well, for those guys, who don’t know what I am talking about: Blogging Journal is where you write down all your blogging related ideas and decide to take action later.
Do you keep a journal?
That’s what I use my blogging journal for. Well, what do you use it for?
For those guys who don’t keep a blogging journal: If you were to have one, what would it for?
And why don’t you keep one?
This blog post takes a simple look at why I think you should keep a blogging journal. This post is solely based on my own experiences with my dear Blogging Journal.
I have been blogging for 2 and a half years now. And I can confidently tell you that the best posts that I have written so far came from my blogging journal. That’s my first reason.
Blogging Journal Helps You to Organize New Ideas
You never know when you are going to get a blogging related idea. And if you don’t write it down soon, you may even forget it (I have had a few cases of that). My blogging journal helped me to get ideas (When I have it in my hand, it motivates me to think of something that is related to blogging). And also helped me to retain them.
I use my old school agenda as my blogging journal. And it has really helped me. You see, I think it is a lot better to write down your ideas (rather than drafting it in your WP account or whatever).
And even my journal has given me different ideas. You see, the people who were responsible for the school agenda had this habit of including awesome quotes on every page of the agenda. I have had several scenarios in which I have framed a whole post based on the quote that I see on a page.
Blogging Journal Motivates You to Think More!
There is a strong motivation behind every human action. Having a Blogging Journal in your hand will motivate you to think about blogging (It has worked for me). For instance: I won’t feel satisfied until I think of at least one idea.
Note: Yes, I have several different ideas. But, as you can guess, I couldn’t write all of them since I didn’t have much to talk about. I only publish articles that I feel satisfied with – others, I throw them in the trash can 😀
Blogging Journal May Give You Confidence
Notice I said, may. That’s because it depends upon the person. If you are able to think of lot of new posts – while having your blogging journal in hand – it will increase your confidence. You see, there is a fear for all bloggers – called Writer’s block.
Whatever you tell, I won’t agree with you. Now and then, there will be times in which you can’t get any ideas. Even if you the great Einstein.
Thinking of ideas before hand decreases your fear and increases your confidence for blogging. An increase in confidence also means that you will perform better (At writing, at commenting, marketing or whatever you are doing).
Better Confidence also means you will have an optimistic attitude (we all know how important our attitude is, don’t we?).
Well, if you don’t, I will give you a quote:
If wealth is lost nothing is lost, if health is lost something is lost, if character [attitude] is lost everything is lost 😀
Well, I guessed that character also means your attitude.
So, Do you Keep a Blogging Journal?
