Okay I must fully admit the fact that I am 100% in love with voice-to-text dictation.
I mean I knew it was a thing for the longest time. I even used it a while back when I had to save my fingers back and neck a little bit. But I never fell in love with it until today. A number of months back I just spoke a few posts into Google Docs. Then I copied and pasted into back offices for publishing. I became impatient though. But this time I really have no choice. Turns out, today I had a massive Turning Point with my blogging campaign. I can type like the Dickens but my neck became so stiff that I became nauseous and dizzy. Some of it was a stomach issue but I never experienced that level of stiffness in my neck and upper back. Red flag. I have to do things differently.
Being at least somewhat aware of my predicament, I knew that it was time to make a change to my blog and campaign. For the near future I will continue to dictate every single blog post before publishing the suckers. Ditto for guest posts. This is so much easier than typing the words out because you save your fingers wrists neck shoulders and back. You also remove all types of tension. Of course, my voice will get a little more mileage on it but it’s not like I’m publishing 30 posts today LOL. At least for now hahaha. But this is what I’m talking about when mentioning making changes to your blogging campaign. For 10 years I wrote my butt off and now it’s time to dictate voice to text. I can stop on a dime like that. Can you? You better be able to if you want to be a nimble, successful blogger.
Every blogger worth their weight in salt should be making adjustments frequently to flow with change. My fingers had been cracking by the end of every day. My yoga wasn’t cutting the mustard as far as opening my fingers. But now I get to speak and do a minimal amount of typing everyday. I love it. I see my prolific nature increasing too. Plus I maintained a more conversational style with my blog posts. Win-win for both of us. But I only made these changes because I was willing to make adjustments today and everyday with my blogging campaign. Never be fixed in your ways. Avoid being rigid. Bloggers get heavily attached to certain strategies and have a terrible time letting go an old, worn-out tactic. I have little problems doing this although this wasn’t always the case. I used to cling but saw how clinging created suffering and struggles with my blog and campaign. Now I Let Go quickly to make adjustments and to keep growing my blogging campaign.
What adjustments have you made recently with your blogging campaign? Or have you been rigid for a long time? Be straight with yourself. Simply observe what needs to change right now. Do you need to change your blog post frequency? Or do you need to begin optimising your posts more effectively? Does your sidebar seem to be too cluttered? Ask questions. Wait for answers. Being honest with yourself is the key to make the right adjustments now. If you need some blogging mojo simply picture your dream life in vivid detail. I’ve been doing this more recently to get clearer on my blog and campaign because when you know where you’re headed you see clearly what you need to do right now, even if that adjustment feels uncomfortable and quite scary. My voice-to-text decision feels a little scary today because I’m so used to typing quickly. No doubt, this will take up a little more of my time because I will need to edit text. But that’s okay. Because this is the adjustment I need to make to accelerate my blogging success and to better help you.
