5 Things We’ve Learned About Daily Blogging:

Blog-vember 2018

As you know, we have decided that Blog-vember 2.0 is our jam! We are pumped that this year, we are able to do it bigger and better. –We are more organized, BUT our goals were aimed higher; instead of offering up a post a day for 30 days, we planned to offer 3 posts a day—yes, a video, a podcast, and a blog post—for 30 days! That’s 90 posts in 30 days! —We MAY be crazy, but it seemed just the challenge that was worthy of the wisdom of nearly two years of blogging and vlogging, and one year of podcasting. This is what we learned:

“The Devil is in the Details…”

One of my graduate school advisors used to tout her value by telling us “The Devil is in the details.” What she was saying was that folks COULD get lost in the weeds, as it were, but she was there to make sure that we all make it through unscathed. I must say that there is no more appropriate saying that would apply to this situation than this. While 90 posts in 30 days is really not THAT hard to muster, it’s the very details of graphics for each social media and for each variety of posts that can cause the most consternation. It is, in fact, that part that has been the hardest part of meeting this 30 Day Challenge that we have given ourselves.

I feel like I am putting out brush fires to stay on-top of it, but that’s part of the challenge, right? What I’ve been doing is just freaking out incrementally, and then stopping to get things done…. Once I get a few days scheduled—all three posts—I settle down….until I realize that I am falling behind and then I swiftly swoop in and get sh*t done! (See our Weekly Blog Planning Post to make sure that what’s important gets done.)
