Writing Roundup – July 30 – August 3rd

After pledging to get back in the writing game on Monday, I stuck to the plan and wrote several pieces of content this week. Here are the published articles, website pages and blog posts contributed!

On Jeffsauer.com

On Threedeepmarketing.com

On Crossfuse.com

Guest post on Aimclearblog.com (if you read one article I wrote this week, this should be the one):

Energized

Last week I spent 4 days at a conference in Seattle called Mozcon. While the primary subject of content was search engine optimization (SEO), a lot of the conversations were around how content impacts SEO, how it is affecting search rankings, and how it’s the right thing to do. Create something great.

I left the conference inspired to start writing again based on the content of the conference, as well as from a conversation I had with Marty from Aimclear. He gave me an idea to write a blog post about wine, which I have in the works right now.

In addition, I realized that I have been making far too many excuses when it comes to writing, and I just need to suck it up. I’m embarrassed that I start posts and never finish them. I’m annoyed that I don’t make it a priority.

One of my long term goals in my career is to be regarded as a thought leader in online marketing, increase my profile as a national author, and eventually write a book. This will never happen if I don’t write.

I am hoping that I can make that change by making a pledge. I am blocking off one hour on my calendar to write something every single day. This could be posts on jeffsauer.com, threedeepmarketing.com, crossfuse.com or even guest posts on other sites (there may be quite a few of these over time).

Not everything will make its way onto this blog, but you should absolutely expect an increase in posts. At the very least I am going make sure that I can share some of my awesome photos and the stories behind them on a consistent basis.

There you have it. If you want to see me write more, please do leave a comment on this post. Sometimes I think nobody is listening, and the tumbleweeds on my comments section often indicate that to be the case.
