Have you ever had an exhilarating idea that gets you super pumped but then ends up falling flat because you didn’t take action or follow through with your idea? Yeah, I’ve experienced that too.
That is why it’s so important, especially as a blogger, to recognized the value of taking action.
I’ve had multiple people tell me that they want to start a blog, how it’d be so cool and so much fun to do. But when it comes down to it, they just don’t do it – they don’t take the first step.
What’s the First step to blogging?
If you’re interested in blogging and actually want to start a blog, grow it, and make money then the first thing you’ll need to do is think of a niche (aka your theme) and a name.
Once you have you have a name figured out and have an idea of what you’ll write about, then the following steps will be easier for you to take.
I’m not going to go into all of the details on how to start a blog, but if you’re interested in that, you can hop on over to my step-by-step guide: How To Start A Blog.
How To Find The Motivation?
Sometimes finding the motivation to write a blog post seems like a never ending feat. One thing you should consider if you’re struggling is if you’re actually interested in what you’re writing about.
Writing for your blog should be easy because you should be writing about something you love. If you’re not a natural writer then try recording yourself while you talk through your thoughts and ideas.

Catapult Your Ideas.
Jump into action when you first think of an idea.
I have a notebook (my Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly Planner) solely dedicated to my ideas and goals – it helps keep me organized, manifest my ideas, and take action.
When an idea first pops into my head, I will write it down and then make a list of all the things I need to do in order to grow my idea into something tangible.
Once you’ve created a list, it’s important to set a date for when you’d like to have everything completed. Setting a realistic goal will help you to build upon your idea and keep you moving in the right direction.
Having a great idea is fantastic, but if you don’t do anything with it, it’s worthless.
The most important blogging tip that you’ll ever learn is to take action.
