Are you a lazy blogger? Please don’t take it as an offense though. Laziness is everywhere especially those of us who didn’t enjoy doing our homework whiles in school. Hahaha!
Please madam, can you punish me for something I didn’t do? That was the question a fellow student wanted to know from his teacher. Obviously, I can’t punish you for something you didn’t do was the reply from his madam. Then madam, please I did not do my homework. Hahaha!
Today is Wednesday and it is one of those days I have to write a post as a blogger. But I don’t feel like writing and the excuse which keeps popping up in my head is like that of this guy with his teacher. Come on, check it out.
The following conversation ensued between Johnny and his teacher:
Teacher: Why didn’t you study?
Little Johnny: A year has 365 days for you to study. After taking away 52 Sundays, there are only 313 days left.
There are 50 days in the summer that is way too hot to work so there are only 263 days left. We sleep 8 hours a day, in a year, that counts up to 122 days so now we’re left with 141 days.
If we fooled around for only 1 hour a day, 15 days are gone, so we are left with 126 days.
We spend 2 hours eating each day, 30 days are used in this way in the year, and we are left with 96 days in our year.
We spend 1 hour a day speaking to friends and family, that takes away 15 days more and we are left with 81 days. Exams and tests take up at least 35 days in your year; hence you are only left with 46 days.
Taking off approximately 40 days of holidays, you are only left with 6 days. Say you are sick for a minimum of 3 days; you’re left with 3 days in the year to study! Let’s say you only go out for 2 days…You’re left with 1 day. But that 1 day is your birthday.
That’s why I did not study, sir.
Hahahaha! That is indeed laziness at best and an interesting excuse. How do you tackle your laziness as a blogger? When was the last time you wrote? And what was the quality?
Blogging is one thing where you aren’t accountable to anyone other than yourself. You feel under no pressure to produce as there isn’t any time limit to face but bear in mind that what you are likely to loose as a blogger are your cherished readers. That is of course really costly.
How do you overcome Laziness in Blogging?
Mind you, I am not here to suggest any supernatural remedies for your laziness as a blogger but just here to speak my mind to you. Airing my view is what I am here to do.
The first point which readily comes in mind as remedy is reading related post in your niche. Do you know how many ideas you’re likely to gather just by reading your competitor’s posts?
Not just reading related post but reading everything that interest you as well. This post of mine by entitled ‘5 million Reasons to be a blogger” is an idea I pitched from a magazine about one man coming across 5 million dollars as an inheritance and the magazine gave a bold header ‘5 million Million Reasons to Smile’
So you see, I don’t conjure magic with my headlines but simply pitches ideas from elsewhere. That is my secret! Hahaha! At least this post has pushed me to reveal to you that Reading is all that matters!
Another point is to try as much as possible to feel relaxed. Do you know how many times I have received this, ‘You’re an excellent writer” . Mr Khanal prefers to call the jolly-writer even though I am yet to find out who a jolly-writer is.
Such complements of course brings in some sort of pressure on you the blogger but the easiest way of not feel complacent and do things in a normal is to feel relaxed. As I usually say, ‘Please be yourself’.
Excuses are indeed nice as a blogger but bare in mind your readers are all that matters. The excuse for not writing that post which intend writing is baseless. Just tie yourself down and do it!
