[This is part of the Blogging Foundations Starter Kit Series. Have you seen the other posts yet?]
Let's see this clearly, shall we?
I spent nearly an hour on skype with one of our community members here on TentBlogger (love how the community is already growing and active!) and we talked about his vision for his work, job, and future vocation.
It was an exciting discussion and it reminded me about how most of my blogs start; the genesis of all of them was simply a vision of what it could be.
The vision and dream would begin circulating in my mind and all the wonderful ideas about how the blog would be a runaway-success would get me high with excitement!
I’d start mapping out the focus of the blog in terms of content, the categories and areas of coverage that most excited me, the design elements that I wanted to include to engage the eye both strategically and for pleasure, and the functionality and feature sets that would engage the audience and take the community to the next level.
I would write all of these things down and the excitement would continue to build, which is great! But now I would face that pivotal moment in the future of this blogs’ growth and trajectory: Execution.
Would I do it? Would I follow through? Have you?
I’m guessing that you are intimately aware of this challenge. In fact, most likely you know this story all too well! You’ve walked this path of dreaming, visioncasting, and ideating about your blog but never getting around to actually doing it, right?
How many blogs have you started in your head compared to the amount of blogs that you actually have? Ouch! The graveyard of blogs that were never born must be in the trillions!
Let’s not add to the body count, shall we?
