How blogging is like going to the gym…
I’ve been to my new gym every single day for the last ten days.
It’s been pretty awesome to put the focus on me and my health!
But you know what’s just as awesome about my new-found habit?
I’m actually BLOWN AWAY by the people. They are helping me set up before classes, they are teaching my how to do a proper deadlift, they are complimenting my workout leggings, they are offering to teach me the equipment. All without me asking them to do a single thing!
They just see me showing up, doing my thing and they connect with ME.
For this work at home / stay at home mom that’s HUGE. Seriously. I want to connect with people, make friends and in due time pay it forward. And what is crazy to me is that I was intimidated by the gym… like the people would be unfriendly and judgey but it has been the most friendly atmosphere I’ve ever experienced in my life!
And you might be wondering what the heck this has to do with blogging.
Here’s the thing…
You can build your business alone, or you can get “out there”.
Blogging is like going to the gym because you’re not doing it all alone anymore. I could workout at home, alone, or I can go to the gym. I can write content to my email list, privately, or I can blog.
I’m actually blogging right now of course and THEN I’ll send this to my email list. The difference is I’m now opening up to get connection, feedback, advice even!
Like going to the gym I’m going to be able to connect with people who have the same interests because now they can see me, now they know what I’m up to and they can tell if I’m their “people”!
From the amount of connection I’ve generated in just a few days at the gym I imagine that, over time, I’ll be able to make some really good friends there and be able to get and give support through my own healthy lifestyle journey.
The same thing has happened to me time and time again with blogging. I’ve made friends, connections, partners and customers from my blog time and time again. It’s a natural by-product of the blogging process over time.
That’s why I’ve created the Blogging It Out 10-Day Fast Action Challenge as this month’s Laptop Lifestyle Business Club challenge.
Blogging is a habit. Going to the gym is also a habit.
Going to the gym is also a habit. I’ve gone 10 days in a row and the more days I get it, the stronger the habit becomes. Soon it will be second nature!
That’s what my challenges kick-start for my members: habits. And the Blogging It Out Challenge is no different.
Let’s do this together! 10 Days of Blogging Tips, 8 blog post challenge days (and I’ll show you to create great posts, fast), one training webinar on Blogging Naturally and of course our amazing private group where you get accountability, answers and more.
Join the Club and don’t miss this challenge. We start Monday!
p.s. When you join the club before Monday you’ll actually get two challenges for the price of one. The Fast Content Creation Challenge will be removed for new people on Monday but if you get in now, you’ll get it too!
