I’ve been deserted this blog for a few months now and I think time has come to use it as it should be use.
I felt guilty of not being active on this blog as much as I wanted initially. But this little experiment shows how much social media deals with having clear commitments and stick to it.
Let’s have a look at the main aspects that have to be considered in order to design a long term blogging strategy
You have to set clear goals and for that you need to prepare what you’re are going to share with others… But not only! You’ll also have to be prepared: to be criticized, shared eventually, challenged, questioned…
And sometimes to be prepared not to be convinced of the path you’ve decided to follow. But also to be disappointed because you thought you could have reach a bigger audience.
That’s where determination plays a powerful role. Because as long as blogging has not been integrated as a real routine, then you’ll have to fight with you own demons: laziness and lack of confidence.

I’m really convinced you can find you tone by selecting what makes you feel better, what you like and love. In other words, being an enthusiastic person, being motivated and passionate is decisive. By sharing things that matter to you with your audience is
Routine might sometimes sounds like boring. Yet the routine is the number tool that can be really useful in order to be more effective… i’s even a power when you know how to break it and how to create new ones.
To do so, nourish yourself, do your howework, share it with others! What would be your advice for being back on track for this year to come?
