How to stay consistent with your blog
Blogging consistently is not an easy task. Most people start their blog with tons of illusion, but the lack of consistency kills their lovely child (blog) before even start.
And if you have kids around, this consistency thing can become a real challenge.
It’s really important that you know how to stay consistent with your blog in order to be successful.
There is going to be things every day that will affect the way you have organized your tasks, sometimes life gets in the way, and you need to be flexible enough to absorb those changes and stay consistent with your blog
Whatever you do, don’t quit, adjust!
I just prepared a very nice printable with 18 pieces of wisdom that will help you keep your motivation up at every moment!
My top 3 strategies to stay consistent with your blog
I want to share with you the 3 most important tips I use to stay consistent with my blog.
1 Keep Yourself Accountable
Share your goals with your blogging partners.
Once you share your goals, you’ll automatically feel more committed to get it done.
You want to be trustworthy, so you keep your word and get everything done on time.
You can also share your goals with your couple or even with your readers.
Exposing yourself will help you do whatever you can to deliver what you promised.
2 Get Rid of Distractions
You need to be aware that there are online and offline distractions.
What is the difference?
Washing the dishes, do the laundry, cooking, cleaning the house, buy some groceries, etc, are offline distractions.
And of course, checking your social media account every second, email notifications, 50+ WhatsApp groups, etc, are online distractions.
Offline distractions are a real problem when you work from home, to avoid these kinds of distractions, you need to imagine that you’re at the office.
During office hours you can’t wash the dishes or go to the supermarket.
To combat online distractions you can try the Pomodoro Technique.
This method uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. This will help you improve your concentration.
3 The Realistic Publishing Schedule
There is no such thing as “the right publishing schedule”. You should stick to the schedule that works for you.
In my case, posting on a daily basis is impossible, so I try to post every 15 days or once a month.
You can start slow, posting once a month and then move to twice a month once your writing becomes more fluent.
Just go with the publishing schedule that works for you and avoid committing to an unrealistic schedule that will drive you to quit your blog.
You can start applying these 3 strategies, but I really recommend you to create your own ones. Nobody knows you better than yourself. I’m sure that you are aware of what you need to do to stay consistent with your blog.
So, move into action and get it done!

Hi! I’m Vanessa Cast. Business Coach focused on Mompreneurs, long-time entrepreneur and unshakable #DreamsPrinter, dedicated to helping you live according to your priorities by profiting out of your passions and abilities.
I was only 19 years old when I started my first business, it was a computer retail online store, after that, and to make a long story short, I played many years in corporate life, in a very nice job, with a great salary.
But in 2013 (this is a super happy “but”) Alex was born, so I had this feeling that I need to find a more meaningful thing to do, something to build a better world for my little boy. A few months later I decided to resume my entrepreneurship career.
I’d love to tell you that it was a piece of cake, but no… it was hard. I’ve run many different businesses while cradling my newborn: A Motivational Subscription Box, Consulting Services, and even a Bakery… Sweet!
This gave me the opportunity to raise my son based on my own schedule and not my boss’. And at the same time, I was helping others to reach their goals.
