Hey there — welcome back to the Copyblogger Weekly!
I was recording a podcast interview this week, and during the conversation I realized how much of business comes down to “putting one foot in front of the other.”
From the outside, it tends to look like your favorite business owners or content marketers have everything figured out. Really, they’re doing the same thing you are — looking around to figure out the territory, making “best guesses” about how to move forward, then executing and watching for results.
Creating online means we’re always navigating unfamiliar waters — and that’s a great thing, even when it’s hard.
On Monday, it was so nice to hear from Raubi Perilli on The Digital Entrepreneur podcast, talking about listening to your instincts and finding your business passion. On Tuesday, I got a little riled up on my podcast, encouraging you to resist anyone telling you that it’s “too late” to add your voice to the world of podcasting — or any other content type.
And on Wednesday, Pamela Wilson’s post encourages you to embrace the uncertain path of the heroic entrepreneur. (Even if your superhero jammies are in the wash.)
Inspiration tends to work a lot better when it rides along with practical advice. In my Copyblogger article on Monday, I shared some thoughts on different models for niche education sites. On Tuesday, Kyle Fiehler gave us some specific strategies for crafting technical content, even if you’re not an expert.
Stay inspired, work hard, and create something amazing this week. I’ll catch up with you on Wednesday instead of Thursday next week, as we head into the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. See you then!
