Struggling to consistently create content?

(Same, girl. Same.)

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat staring at a blinking cursor on a blank page, wondering how the heck I was supposed to write yet another blog post related to my businesses topic, Squarespace.

The problem is, you can’t just stick a handful of helpful posts up when you first start your Blog, Vlog, Channel, or Insta and just hope those will forever be enough to keep the crowds comin’.

You may very well be the end-all-be-all knowledge source for your topic, but if you aren’t consistently putting what you know on paper (errm…online), then your audience will never have a chance to experience that brilliance and believe you are the expert you say you are.

And you can forget showing up in a search for your chosen seo keywords or niche topic…

(Not convinced? See: I blogged consistently for 1 year, here’s what happened to my traffic, and The most successful online businesses all have this 1 thing in common. Hint:it’s consistent, valuable content.)
