Running a marathon at sprint speed makes for really sore muscles
And you may not make it to the finish line at all. Steady performance does it, and it will keep you in shape. Today I am celebrating my 300th blog post with you. That is a lot like running a marathon as one needs to deliver for a long time in order to have a sustainable impact. I can only encourage you to also start or keep blogging for a myriad of reasons. It keeps your mind focused and in order to write about something, you have to do research about the topic in order to get clarity and collect enough material to write about it. Mental jogging next to physical activity benefits your long term health.
Many people have asked me how I manage to have time writing three blogs a week. That is the easy part. The toughest challenge to get started in the first place. Once you commit to making your posts a routine you are firmly on the roll to keep cranking out posts. Make sure that you provide value added material and you will enjoy a stable and perhaps steadily increasing readership. That’s the marathon part. With exercise comes stamina and even the longest distance runs become easier and easier.
