Journal to Blog Basics: Create a Journaling Practice
The biggest hurdle separating successful content creators from those who fizzle out is dedication, and deadlines alone are not the answer. Accountability is good, but it doesn’t work for everyone. How often do you think you could publish if you had a well of content ideas to pull from and a system to organize them? The Journal to Blog method takes all the pressure of the idea phase of content creation so when it’s time to publish, the magical, creative part of the process is already done. And with practice, reading your own journal will help you develop an eye for which stories are interesting and valuable to your audience. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create a journaling habit that sticks, set some intentions for your own practice and get a preview of how to turn your scribbles into impressive content.
