Setting up a blog is easy! Updating it and writing quality content is the hard part. There’s no such thing as an overnight success in blogging. And people who think publishing once a month is going to bring them a ton of traffic to their website are just delusional.
Now you’re probably quite disheartened with what you just read in the first paragraph. It doesn’t really drive you to sit down everyday and write a blog post. A blog is easy to set up but when folks realize that it needs some hard work – that’s when your motivation goes down the drain.
As with any activity that requires commitment, motivation is the key to sticking with it and doing a damn good job of it. Think about the last you had to do something you really didn’t want to do. I bet you did the bare minimum. Don’t worry I’m not here to point fingers. Personally I hate hoovering and I’m pretty lousy at it too.
But with blogging, the special ingredient to making it work for you and your business is publishing content regularly. Writing a post once a week is a good start. However I recommend 3-5 posts a week to give people more entry points to your blog via search engines and social media
Now you’re probably wondering, “Three to five posts a week, are you crazy!?” No I’m not, just realistic. When you set up a blog, you want lots of visitors to visit your site. The only way you can achieve that is through writing quality blog posts frequently. It’s now that motivation becomes crucial to your blogging success
Trust me, you won’t be motivated everyday to write a blog post. So how do you push yourself and motivate yourself when you’re running low. Here are 23 ways to find your motivation and start creating content daily.
23 Ways To Motivate Yourself To Blog Everyday
- Ignore your analytics figures and just focus on content creation
- Never give up and keep pushing forward
- Write everyday to become a better blogger
- Stop procrastinating and just get on with it
- Visualize the success blogging regularly will bring you

- Believe in yourself
- Read something inspirational to get you pumped
- Go the extra mile, that’s when you improve the most
- Focus on the positives

- Slowly pick up the pace. Write once a week and add an extra post each week until you reach your publishing goal
- Ask for help when you’re stuck
- Subscribe to blogs that will make you a better blogger
- Time yourself and turn it into a competition
- Challenge yourself to get more shares, likes and comments with each blog post
- Warmup before your blog post by writing in a journal everyday (If you’re on a Mac and iOS, I highly recommend Day One)
- Reward yourself every time you hit Publish
- Find a place to write that inspires you and allows you to be super productive (e.g. outside, cafe, library, shared office etc.)
