  • Carve out a time in your schedule and make an appointment to blog (e.g., each Thursday at 7pm)
  • If you get an unusually creative block of free time and feel ambitious, consider creating several posts as drafts and scheduling them for automatic publishing later
    • This is known as "blogging your heart out"
Ideas for why to blog:

    • Curating resources for yourself and others
