Sometimes it can be extremely challenging trying to blog every single day. It is possible to do it though, you simply need to have the right process in place to support you. In order to achieve writing every single day you need to have your ideas, research and draft posts prepared ahead of time.

This essentially means that when you sit down to write you are going to have a topic to discuss and be able to complete your mission of trying to write every single day.During this 30 day blogging challenge myself and Phil started in April 2016, I have ran into a few challenges.
It inspired me to get back to basics. With a process, you can beat writers block and write every single day. The first thing you need to do is pick a platform that allows you to capture ideas wherever you are.
3 Steps to help you write every day
Capture Your Ideas on the Go
This could be a physical notebook, but I recommend using cloud technology to store your files and have them accessible on your mobile device. Personally, I use Microsoft OneNote.
There are many platforms available, Evernote is an excellent system to use. Both have free versions that are more than functional enough for you to use.
You need to set this up in the cloud and have access to the file on your phone on laptop. I will focus on Microsoft OneNote as that is what I use on a daily basis.Create 3 Writing Sections within Your Notebook.
I have three sections within my notebook. The first section is called blogging ideas, the second is blogging research on the third is blog drafts.
Step 1: Blogging Idea’s
Like most I am struck with inspiration to write on many topics at random times of the day. To ensure that I capture these ideas, I have access to my notebook using my mobile device. Idea’s are added to the Blogging ideas section.
The next step is to book time in the week to review these ideas and promote topics that you would like to write about into your blogging research section of your notebook. Following this, you new need to complete research!
Step 2: Blogging Research
Researching your topics can be a little bit more challenging, but again it will make writing much easier. I often see tweets, news stories and online content that inspires me.
If I think this content is possibly relevant to some of the blog topics that I have set for research, I simply add the link or take a screen clipping to save it.
Also if I see any statistics that I think will be relevant to the blog article that I am researching, I will include the statistics and ensure to quote them with a link back to the source within my full blog article upon publication.
So what you find is over a very short period of time you have gathered a lot of blog topics to possibly write a post about.
Step 3: Blog Drafts
The journey of topics from your blogging ideas section into your blogging research section is great, as you now have a massive number of topics to write about!
This means that you can turn notifications off, you can simply focus on the task of writing your article. Writing every single day becomes a powerful habit that can be very rewarding to both you and your audience.
So what writing habits have you picked up over the last few years? Reach out and let us know we would love to hear from you.
I hope this process will help you reach your goals of writing great content every single day to help engage your audience.
