How to Write a Blog

I don’t have any issue coming up with things to write about. It’s common for me to have 4 to 5 thoughts spread through my email, iphone, and scraps of paper on my desk. The problem for me is feeling confident or satisfied with how to go about writing in a way that feels worthwhile.

So instead of writing, I think about writing, and that makes me anxious. Its a problem I’ve had for a while now.

Here are a few suggestions you can use to develop your own voice and style for your blog. First, remember that a blog is a conversation. Try to write the way you speak… It may be helpful to speak your entry out loud before trying to type it or to read it aloud after you’ve written it. If you find yourself struggling as you read aloud or speaking unnaturally, think about what you might have said if you were talking to a friend rather than writing. — Writing a Good Blog

Back to procrastinating.

EDIT: This might be a good place to link to some blogs that I do enjoy reading (from people I actually know). No context here, sorry. You’ll have to do some digging.
