A much needed kick in the blogging pants

By Justine Clay

 

Happy Fall everyone!  I hope you’re enjoying the new experiences and feelings that a new season brings.

I recently wrote a newsletter about my less than seamless transition from lazy summer days to a productive and focused Fall.  After giving myself a good talking to and creating a weekly plan, I’m happy to report that I’m back in the swing of things…..almost.   The one thing I haven’t got back on track with is blogging. For me, blogging’s like working out – when you do it regularly, it’s easy and you feel so much better for it.  But once you slow down (or worse, stop), getting revved back up again can take some effort.

So, I was delighted to hear that Joy Cho, of the fantastic blog Oh Joy, has written a new book called ‘‘Blog Inc.’  I was a big fan of ‘Creative Inc.’ so I had high hopes.

I snapped up my copy at Joy’s West Elm book signing and started reading it on my commute this morning. I’m already feeling more inspired and am looking forward to engaging once more.

What about you?  Do you have any tips for keeping the blog flame alive?  I’d love to hear from you.
