Okay, I’ll admit it.
I’ve been a very bad blogger.
I didn’t realize just how bad I’d been until I started rifling through my archives in search of related posts for a new article. While scanning those old posts, I couldn’t help but think I’d be one heck of a bodacious blogger by now if I followed more of my own advice.
Now, granted, I have set up an editorial calendar.
And I do have a custom content strategy.
Still, I’ve yet to write a single review post, and I’ve been quite the slacker when it comes to writing list posts. I’ve also been lax about adding related posts to the bottom of my articles and putting links to the most popular posts on the blog’s sidebar
I have, however, gleaned a speck of redemption by creating this link post today to introduce newer readers to older posts
The truth is, we bloggers hand out a lot of advice, and if we practiced everything we preached, we’d be darn near perfect.
But we’re not perfect.
We’re flawed human beings.
Mistakes will be made.
Wrong turns will be taken.
Meanwhile, all any of us can really do is put forth our best effort every day, read through our archives every now and again, and make adjustments when we see we’ve gotten off track.
Your turn: Do you practice what you preach, or are you a backsliding blogger too?
