A bogged down Blog – A lot of mud on the tires
If I am going to do something, I prefer to do it right. I hardly ever ACTUALLY do it right, but it’s my desire. When I accepted this Blog Challenge I had no idea just how STUCK in the mud my blog was. It was a bogged down blog. It had sat dormant for a while and there was therefore a quantity of things that needed to be cleaned up and fixed. One thing leads to another, which leads to another. It’s hard to keep up.
Out of the mud. We’re moving, now what?
As the blog wheel started to spin faster and faster, more and more mud slung off. Updating the blog template, updating the About page, moving the Blog to a new domain, making sure Google Analytics and Webmaster tools were setup correctly, all while writing content. There’s a lot to do, but I am trying to keep up, and clean up, as I go.
Making the time to do it right
Keeping up with the blog and trying to do it well have sent me down all sorts of rabbit trails. It’s enjoyable, but stressful at the same time. I have been on vacation for two weeks, which is a GREAT time to start a blog challenge I must say. I’ve been able to spend 2-3 hours a day working on the blog and writing content. I really have an unfair advantage over everyone else in the challenge.
The stressful thing about all the rabbit trails is I don’t know how I will keep up when I am back to “normal life” starting on Monday. Am I over the hump, or just beginning to climb a mountain?
I don’t want to miss what may be the beginning of something great by sliding back into the normal swing of things. I actually think blogging has the potential to make me a better CEO (More on that soon).
On the other hand, if I stay the course and MAKE the time, I will be FORCED to be even more intentional with how I use my time. That will result in a mandatory review of my priorities. I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
I think it’s time to Delegate and Elevate.
