I feel like the amount of work to build up your brand is very easy to overlook. I certainly made quite a few of these mistakes and I am constantly learning new things to improve for the future.

A few things that I do in order to make sure I am optimizing my time as well:

  • Keep a running list of topics/ideas that you want to write about. Pull from that list when you are looking for something to write about, but don't be afraid to just write about what is interesting to you at that moment as well.
  • Automate as much of the manual tasks as possible so you can focus on your content.
  • Not every blog post is going to be a hit and that is quite alright. You wrote something, put your thoughts to paper (digitally), and who knows it might help that one person.

Great post Lindsey! I look forward to seeing what you do next.

 

I actually have a running list of topics too! It's super helpful when your goal is to post consistently, but you have an off week and aren't feeling inspired. This post came as an idea to go "off brand" or rather evolve my brand to not just be about accessibility, but also helping others get started. It's still an experiment and it's proving to be a positive one.

Also 100% pro automation too. I really like automating my tweets and emails! Saving the time has been super helpful!
