I have been training people on how to blog for nearly a year now. In that time, I have had the privilege of working with dozens of people who want to blog, but haven’t been able to for various reasons. Among the most common reasons given are these:
- Don’t have the time to blog (also phrased as blogging takes up too much time)
- Don’t know what to write about
- Don’t have sufficient ideas or material
- Don’t think anyone wants to read my thoughts
- I am not a good writer
- Don’t know who is going to read my blog or how people will find it
- My organization insists on a long chain of approval to publish anything
- I don’t have buy-in from top-level executives at my organization
- Don’t see the point or purpose in blogging
- Don’t know how to set up a blog
Do any of these sound familiar to you?
