If I Don’t Write This Blog Post…Will Anyone Care???

writer's blockstops here. (1)

If I’m honest with myself, probably not.

After all, a blog post isn’t gonna change the world. At least, mine isn’t. It’s not likely to contain the secrets of the universe, or a cure for some horrible disease, or a piece of crucial, absolutely-must-have information people are waiting for on the edge of their seats.

To be honest, I’m not sure people would even notice if Seth Godin or Elizabeth Gilbert or some other guru-type person missed a weekly blog post. Provided they actually post weekly blog posts.

Do they?

Would you? (Miss it, I mean.)

So here it is, Friday afternoon, almost 6pm, I’ve been working all day and I’m ready to stop. But this is the day I usually do a blog post, and I have to admit, I completely forgot.

So here I am.

Here we are.

And, as you’ve no doubt noticed here, several paragraphs in, I’m doing it. The blog post, I mean. Because, if you’re out there, and I’ve connected with you in some way, I don’t want to let you down. And hey, maybe you need to hear, right at this moment, that you’re not the only person experiencing a “To-Write-Or-Not-To-Write” existential crisis over a blog post. Maybe you need to hear that, while it will be absolutely, perfectly FINE if you skip it, and the world will not end, and your business will not close next week because of your Blog Posting Failure, it still does matter if you do it.

Maybe only for one person.

Maybe only, even, for you.

That’s why I’m writing this one.

And of course, I’d be remiss – and a terrible biz person – if I didn’t take this opportunity to let you know that if you really, really hate writing blog posts…I can help make it a little easier (for not a lotta dough). You can click HERE to find out how.

And whatever you do, have a lovely weekend. Mine is starting right…now.
