I recommend you watch the whole thing but if you're one of those people who has to skip to the end of a book first to see how it ends, then here are the key highlights for you to jump to 🙂 :
01:18 - Getting clear on your priorities - is blogging one of them or not?
02:45 - Less is more! You don't have to be everywhere and do everything. In fact, you'll see more progress if you aren't.
03:46 - Breaking it down - the simplest way to stop something feeling overwhelming, is to break it down into bite-sized pieces.
04:17 - Schedule & Routine - yep, this is the really sexy part of the video! 😉
05:30 - Heard of batch cooking? Well this is just like that, but with blogging...
06:29 - Be Kind to Yourself - getting a little perspective, taking a step back and making life easier for yourself. Can't argue with that right?
07:09 - Your special invite! - Sorry! Our blogging challenge has now ended. Instead, I'd love to offer you a free gift to help you save even more time with your blog!
