Free Blogging Advice (FBA) – Episode 1: The beginning…

Writing is so easy. Writing is so hard…

Free Blogging Advice: Writing is hard. And easy. The goal of the Free Blogging Advice (FBA) series of short articles is to provide some free advice on… blogging! All you have to add is some time and effort. And love. Lots of love.

FBA Episode 1: The beginning

How does every journey starts but with a first step? And how important that first step is cannot be exaggerated enough. Whether you do it or not will determine whether you will be called a writer or not. Whether or not you take it will determine if you will be a creator instead of just a consumer of creations.

So before everything else, one should do the obvious: Start writing!

It is as easy as it sounds. And exactly because of that, it is so difficult!

Many people dream of writing but never do. There exist a ton of excuses not to. It takes courage to overcome that first hurdle and doing so is solely on you. There is no magic pill, no magic recipe, no magic advice. If you cannot just open your computer and start writing then this series of articles is not for you. If you cannot open Word or any other writing application and start producing content then there is no need to discuss advice in good blogging and writing.

So that’s it.

If you have already started writing and you have content already created then you have successfully passed the first stage for successful blogging.

If not, then do so immediately.

Be a rebel! Cut the tube!

You cannot even imagine how much cream is left inside a hand cream tube after it is SUPPOSED to have finished.

The tube plays a very specific role in todays consumer society: It makes it difficult to use the product, usually forcing you to use MORE than needed (in case you extract more cream by accident, there is no way of getting it back in) and – more importantly – makes sure that you will buy a new one long before the whole product has been used!

See for your self…

Find a cream tube from which you cannot extract any more cream by squeezing and cut it half with a pair of scissors and look inside…

PS. The same applies for many other products as well. Women should also check their lipsticks… When they “end”, there is much more inside the “base” of the lipstick. Just use a small brush to use it.

Because acting is the best philosophy…
