Easier said than done, right? Don’t I know it.
I’ve had ‘write first post’ on my to-do list for months.
Here’s what I’ve realized—and it applies to a lot more than starting a blog—we’ve got to stop using the details as an excuse.
“I can’t start my YouTube channel until I have a proper camera. I’ll reach out to clients once my business cards are printed. I’ll start running once I buy the right shorts.” You’re just stalling. You don’t need a DSLR to record video, you can start with your phone, right? And the running shorts? Come on.
So in this case, what’s the most important thing? What’s the thing without which the blog couldn’t even exist? The writing, duh.
You know what doesn’t matter at this stage? Everything else. Themes, logos, colours, categories, about pages, twitter links… There’s plenty of time to deal with that later.
Because honestly, the perfect theme colour isn’t going to make you feel any less vulnerable.
Stop overthinking and just start.
