I HATE Homework - Still

Real Estate Agent with RSVP Real Estate

When I was in Junior High School I hated homework, especially the writing essays or reports. Now that I'm an adult, I STILL HATE homework, especially writing Blogs!

Blogging is critical to my business, just like essays were to my grades. That doesn't make it any easier.

Staring at a blank page (or now-a-day a computer screen) is very intimidating. Writing something that others will find interesting is a challenge. Each time I think about doing a blog I get that same feeling of dread, what if no one reads it, what if no one comments or likes it? What if I get an F?

Then I also start to think about other things, spacing, formatting, links, photos, calls to action. Before I know it I have over thought the whole point of my blog and lost sight of what I am doing.

I am NOT a word smith.

I am just going to try to put together some simple thoughts about things I know and understand. Sometimes people will read them, sometimes they may even submit a comment. But the more I do it the easier it will become.

Thanks Randy, I am not one of those wordsmith people.  I feel at times, I have to pull the words out of my head and I have been in the same mindset of being overwhelmed at the simple or not so simple tasks like spacing, fonts, pictures, boy the picture thing will throw me every time!  Good luck, you are not alone.
